5 Reasons to move from hobby to business mindset.
Hey friends, pull up a chair and let’s chat. I want to get real about your creative business. Oh wait, you aren’t calling it a business? It’s your “hobby?” Hold up sister and let’s dive a little deeper.
Do you work with the intention of making money...? Or you don’t care if you make a profit? If you are getting paid on the regular, congratulations you have a business!
Do you invest significant amounts of time and effort into your product/craft and depend on the income from that investment? If so, you have a business.
Do you have multiple customers and clients or just a few who are friends or family? If you have multiple customers, you have a business.
Are you willing to take action to improve the profitability of this endeavor? Meaning, you’ll make a tweak here and there so you have more money in your pocket. If so, you have a business.
But, “Jill!," you say, "I don’t do this full time!" You only do this part time? You consider it your side hustle? Good news! That’s ok! It can be your part time business.
For me, keeping my few plants alive is a HOBBY!
