Hobby and Interest List

One way how to find your niche is to start with what already interests you. Take a look at your hobbies and decide which one could be profitable. This is win-win, as you would be working on something that you already enjoy. Below is a list of hobbies and some of these may not be profitable depending on how competitive the niche product or market is. For instance, cooking and fashion may be tougher to break into. That is not to say that these hobbies or interests are not profitable, as they most certainly can be, they will just require some extra dedication.

Some of the below will link to another page with niche suggestions.
