Turn Your Skill Into A Business In 2023

As we step further into the future, the cost of living has been skyrocketing, making it challenging for even the average middle-class family to make their usual ends meet. From housing and utilities to the weekly shop and healthcare, everything is demanding a bigger chunk of cash than it used to. As a result, many Brits have turned to starting their own business to have greater control over their finances. Between 2000 and 2022, the number of small businesses in the UK has increased by 60%! If you have a skill that you’re interested in pursuing but aren’t sure how – we’ve got you! Here are routes for turning a hobby into a career:

Teach Music

If you’ve had a long-standing passion for music, you can start offering music lessons and generate some extra cash. There are many tutoring platforms where qualified teachers can register and offer private music classes across a wide range of disciplines and levels of expertise.

Music lessons are a great way for anyone to improve their craft no matter the discipline: drums, piano, DJ’ing, music production, guitar to song writing. If you are an expert in any of these, don’t miss the opportunity o make some extra money.

Today’s technology offers a lot of flexibility, where you can run classes both online and in person and adapt everything to your own schedule.

Apart from Fiverr and Upwork, you can register to platforms such as Pirate.com and tap straightaway into a community of musicians, from beginners to professionals. Via their platform you would also get discounted access to their music studios, for face to face lessons and they vouch to help you promote your services.

Petcare

Pet ownership is on the rise in 2023, and these people absolutely adore their furry little friends. As pet parents become busier with their daily lives, they seek reliable and loving care for their beloved companions. That’s where you come in. Pet care services allow pet lovers to tap into this growing demand and become the saviour that pet owners so desperately need during usual work hours.

To get involved, you could offer a pet-day-care centre, for example, or pet grooming services. Pet parents will pay a lot for their fur babies, so don’t sell yourself short when setting your rates. And the best part is that if you’re a pet lover yourself, this won’t even feel like work. You could either post leaflets through the doors of pet owners in your area or leave a message on an online forum stating who you are, your experience (if you have any), your love of pets, and what you can offer.

Health and Wellness Coaching

The health and wellness movement has catapulted in the last few years, and it’s not hard to see why! With all the wellness TikTokers and Insta reels of gym bunnies, we seem to have entered a wellness revolution inspiring millions to prioritise their self-care. Love it or loathe it, this virtual health and wellness community has opened up a vast market for online businesses to tap into the growing demand for health-focused services.

If you’re reading this and thinking ‘but, I’m not a gym bro’ – not a problem. The industry is so incredibly diverse, you could offer classes in any area of health and wellness such as breathwork, yoga, or energy healing, to name a few. Not only will you feel elated each and every day from making your clients feel better, but you’ll also build genuine connections.

Find Your Passion In 2023

In each of these small business ideas, you can turn your passion into a purpose, create meaningful connections, and positively impact people’s lives. Whether you’re making melodies, caring for pets, or promoting well-being, embrace the potential for success, growth, and personal fulfilment that awaits you in turning your passion into a career.
