Don’t get me wrong, side hustles can be great. And I love mine. But Patia Braithwaite at SELF reminds us why our hobbies don’t have to make money. Sometimes it’s good to have hobbies we do just for the love of it. Because oftentimes when we try to monetize it, it’ll take all of the fun out of the process and experience for us.
Do the thing that brings you joy (and impresses your friends and family) without turning it into something you can sell. A hobby that helps you feel good is probably more valuable than the extra cash.
