Let's be real here — almost everyone's got a passion or a hobby. Something fun they do on the side to take their mind off of real-life problems, or just something they do because they find it fun.
Another true fact? While a lot of us have hobbies, a lot of us don't realize those hobbies can be working for us and actually making us money. Whether you love to cook, make jewellery, paint or simply like reviewing things... chances are, there's a way for you to keep enjoying your passion and make some extra cash while you're at it!
Whatever you love to do, making money doing something you love is totally possible as long as you know how to use social media and website tools to brand yourself the right way. Creating a personal website can give you a digital space to showcase yourself. Thankfully, in 2018, not only is this possible but it's super easy to do - especially when there are so many resources available to you. (Pro tip: .CA has an awesome ebook on their Digital Me platform that explains all about building up your personal branding called Digital Me: Personal Branding In The Social Media Age).
