Do you think you can make money from your talent? Yes of course, there's a lot pf people their whoactually making money from their talents. One i know is making fashion accessories. It is really easy. You can really earn from it. You have the big market like teenagers, kids, mothers and working womens. Its one of known trends right now. You will only need small investment, no sweat. All you need is your talent and creativity. Im sure there's a lot of people out there who are talented. It could be you. Would you mind sharing it with us. I know there are a lot here would like to make money from talent and yet dont know how. Maybe your ideas would help.

Right now my passion is drawing. I'm getting better all the time, and I do have commission information up on my deviantArt. I've seen many MANY people on there make money through sales of art books, prints, and commissons. A few of my favorite artists get $20 for a sketch and up to $100 per finished work - and they ALWAYS have people commissioning them. That would be so great - doing something you love so much to get good money. Maybe someday I'll get good enough to be like that. (:

I think everyone has talents that they can use to help them make enough to live on if they put their mind to it. Many peopel are creative, others have a knack with machinery or computers, others have a way with words. Its just a case of trying things to see what skills you have that others might like to buy. People complement each other, I'm very creative but I'm not well organised, maybe one day I might be able to afford t pay someone to help me organise my paperwork. Their skills would complement mine and both would benefit in the long term.

just reflect to yourself. try to ask what you like most and what you do most as a hobby. Or what can you see in your own house like if you see things you can see a vision. there's a lot you just have to figure it. like those who participate here they really using there talent.

I would want to make money from my talents but I really do not know how to go about it. I am into music for nearly a decade or so and I was very much interested in promoting music. I play the piano and the electronic keyboard but how to make money from it is a factor that keeps eluding me. Making money from your talents is indeed a very rich experience as it would be something you are naturally good at and sometimes something that would make you very happy so no matter how long you work at it in the long run the satisfaction is what pays off

Those who have uncommon talent usually end up making money. I mean you mention fashion accessories. I think I know about 50 people personally who do earn from trading in fashion accessories!! Other people with talents such as enhancing clothes with embroidery also earn well!!

Well I think it’s the best way to make money if you make it from your talent or hobby! Firstly you don’t get tired of working as you enjoy your work. You mite prove more efficient as you put in your best to do it, also you remain fresh for a longer time and do not get bored and need less number of breaks. During the period when all the dance bars in Mumbai got shut, many NGOs stepped in to encourage the dancers to take up their talent or hobby as their occupation so that they do not starve. They also helped them to improve on their skills to make jewelery or hand paintings or stitch cushions and so on. Many youngsters also do that, not only to earn money but also to kill their spare time in a more creative way. I used to make picture frames and candles during my vacations n used to sell them at college annual functions!

I would like to make money with my talent, but it depends which talent you have. If you have the talent of Federer playing tennis, no problem.

american idol - one of talent shows through which u can earn big money if you manage to edge out your other people. it is also a site to show off ur talent
making money from one's talent can be a rather difficult task because im sure that the talent is not only possessed by you, ie. many people out there has the same talent as you have. it can turn to be a very competitive challenge and i really appreciate those who have managed to earn from their talents.

I use my talent to make money. I have my own website (www.sweetdesigninc.com) that showcases my pieces and I do sell them there. I enjoy doing what I do and expressing myself through my arts and crafts. I have had to make investments in supplies and tools and since my business is very new it is still in the red.
