The year 2020 has been a very rough year for most people. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced countless plans to be postponed or cancelled altogether. A lot of people have lost their jobs due to the economic crisis. They have to find another way to survive. Due to the lack of job vacancies during the pandemic, starting a new business has eventually become an option. To welcome the upcoming new year, initiating a new business could be a fresh start for you.

Yet, another challenge arises. Starting a business is undeniably a hard thing to do. The question remains; what kind of business should you try so you can achieve your target?

Turning a Hobby Into a Business, Why Not?
You can take inspiration for your new business anywhere you want. If you still cannot find one, why don’t you start from your hobby or personal interest?

Starting a business can be pretty challenging. However, if it stems from your hobby or personal interest, at least it will be easier for you to start. You should already have enough passion for your business.

It does not necessarily mean that you won’t encounter obstacles in the process though. Chances are you will experience some as well. However, since your business is aligned with your talents and passions, you should have more spirit, motivation, and care for your business and the future challenges.

Examples for Hobbies You Can Turn Into a Business
So, what hobbies are you currently doing that you can turn into new business opportunities? In this digital era, it should take less time for you to start your business compared to━let’s say━ten years ago. Here are several examples of hobbies that you can turn into a business:

Content Writer
If you have a knack for writing, now is your time to commercialize that hobby. Many companies need content writing services to promote their businesses. What kind of contents are they looking for? It could vary, from article contents for blogs or websites to captions for various brands’ social media accounts.

All you need to do is compile your best writings into a portfolio so your potential clients can tell if your writings match their requirements or not.

Catering Service or Food Kiosk
Food is always a sought-after item as it is one of human’s basic needs. So, as long as it is clean and delicious, it should attract a relatively large crowd. If you love cooking and are confident with the result, you can try starting a food kiosk or even a catering service.

To help your business grow faster, you can sign it up for a delivery service at online transport applications. Don’t forget to promote it on social media platforms. Instagram could make a perfect platform as you can upload pictures of your menu easily.

Tutoring Children
Just like adults, children are affected by the pandemic as well. They now have to study online as opposed to attending their classes at school every day. As a result, their parents now have to act as their “teachers” to help their kids learn. The thing is, most parents still have to work on a daily basis.

This allows you to offer a service to tutor the children, perfect for people with a passion for teaching. It can make a great solution for two problems at once: help kids with their education and help parents with their chores.

What If Money Becomes an Obstacle?
It takes a great amount of money to start your business. For instance, if you want to set up an eatery, you need money to buy the food ingredients, dining chairs, and tables. If you want to be a content writer, you will need a laptop and stable internet connection.
