Money Making Hobby
Over the years people have always ask me what I do for a living and my answer is always, “I teach people to play for a living and if they play to hard, I teach them how to fix themselves”. Translated that means I was a professor of physical education at a small college in Idaho, where I taught wilderness sports and emergency response. I also started my own Internet company and do some freelance writing, photography and guiding. When I tell people specifically what I do, they can’t believe I make a living at it.
Back when I was at the college, I remember each year I would advise 100’s of students on their education. What advise did I always give them, “find out what you love to do and then figure out a way to get educated in it”, along with wear your seatbelt and don’t drink and drive (I use to be an EMT also).
So why did I start this Blog, well I’ve always believed in the abundance mentality, which basically states that there’s plenty to go around. Besides, I’m a teacher and by definition I like to help others succeed.
Making money with your hobby is a great way to make a living! Not only am I doing it, but because of what I do for a living, I get to meet a lot of other people doing it as well. Actually, the methods that will be described in this Blog can be used for just about any hobby or area you’re interested in, just apply them accordingly. For me though, the outdoors is where it’s at, so I have a tendency to lean in that direction (you have to talk about what you know).
Hopefully this Blog can not only be a how-to book with resources and step-by-step directions, but also a kind of brainstorming tool to help people come up with new ways to make money playing at your hobby. You can use it for extra cash, new equipment, to offset the cost of trips or as a career tool. I have many examples of ways to make money and with the resources I’ve found, it’s never been easier.
If I’ve learned anything from the outdoors, it’s that there is always more than one way to do things. Hopefully you will come up with your own way, but even if you don’t I have plenty of ways to do it without reinventing the wheel, all you have to do is put your own personal twist on it. A lot of years of experience and research will go into this Blog so I hope you enjoy it.
To your success,
