convert your hobby to money - How to Convert your Hobby to a Job| Business Matter

Many times I have tried to make people see that poverty is not having a high paying job like Mr. A does, “poverty is a state of mind or the inability of one to fully maximize the full potentials of his/her mind and being jobless is a personal decision”.

There are job everywhere the problem is that a lot of us don’t know how to seize the abundant opportunities surrounding us. A motivational speaker once said for you to become wealthy you have to learn how to convert your “hobbies to money”. The richest people on earth today are people who were able to recognize that everything God has put in them was what the world was in need of. I hear people talk so much on their hobbies, likes and interest and I just begin to wonder how much money they have been to draw out of it. Funny enough a lot of these folks are very broke. Turning your hobbies into money making source isn’t too difficult all you need is to start from where you are now and stop waiting for the government to provide you a job, just ask yourself what are the things you love doing always is it chatting/gossiping, reading or whatever it is you can offer is what the world is waiting for. Presently a report filed by Trading Economics shows that Nigeria as at March 2016 unemployment rate was recorded at 12.1% compared to what we had in 2015 which was 10.4%. Notice that this is continually going to keep increasing all over the world, so the only way out is using what you have in you.
