well i have always wanted my livelihood to involve what i love to do as a hobby. because i think that if i love to do my work then i do it better. some have pulled it off but my hobbies are not something easy to earn a livelihood from =( my hobbies are drawing, web designing, creating graphics, browsing the net, listening to music and playing RPG games and mmorpgs - i know the typical hobby right? well actually i am leaning to have to do something as an artist, i draw but i am not godly when it comes to drawing if you know what i mean but i think i draw pretty well somehow :D anyway i love anything to do with art but it's hard to start a business with something that i dont know what to start from and so i am stuck in a job that i don't enjoy. well its not that i hate it but i don't like it either, its like in the middle.. and i dont want to stay there always in the middle. i want to be able to work in something i truly enjoy.. anyway if you'd like to share anything

hi, thanks for sharing this discussion... for me its possible... if you love something to do you can make it as your source of income... for example... if you love making beaded bracelet / earrings or necklace, instead of making it only for your own use, you can make many variety to offer it to public or to your friends. it can also improve your creativity to offer many and new designs. or if you like photography, you can offer photo shot studio or gallery or if you like painting, you can offer painting studio or gallery or if you like doing web designs and graphic design, you can make your own portfolio that can show all your creation online (like making your own website) or print it so you can be a free lancer, which you can earn a lot of money on it... i hope this could help.... have a nice day and happy mylotting... ^_^
