I think it depends on what the hobby is. I have two hobbys, reading and crocheting, and i don't see how there is anyway that those hobbies could make me a millionaire.

I think that it is according to the hobby and how much time you want to spend working at it.

I believe it can as well; If you love to make things, and sell them, you can make a good profit out of it. I believe there are many ideas out there from hobbies that can make one rich.

I think if your hobby is really unique, it can be a source of income for some people. Many businesses started as a hobby like one girl I read that sells cupcakes online at Etsy. She loves to cook cupcakes and her recipes are so unique that she has a great following. She was also able to find a way on how to properly and securely package her cupcakes using Mason jars that she can ship her cupcakes all over the US and around the world.

i think so too. as long as you are enjoying the business or anything that makes you economically productive, we can call that a money-making hobby. and if we do it efficiently and effectively... and maximize the earning and we move to becoming a millionaire.

Absolutely. It just depends on the hobby itself. If you are a master at playing card games you can get yourself some dough in the long run. I think learning card games is by far one of the most lucrative ways to get some cash. One of my goals is to become a 21 champ. And I'm trying to learn how to count cards now. Which is legal if you do the math in your head. That is a sure way to get you far. Only, don't let it go to your head because you may not get anywhere.
