Believe it or not, the things that you find attractive when doing things with your hands can make you quite a bit of money. In fact, in the United States, arts and crafts platforms like Etsy and at a lower level eBay, make a home-based arts and crafts aficionados hundreds of thousands of dollars every single year.
The funny thing about all this is they didn’t start out trying to make money. Seriously. It’s not like they just roll up their sleeves one day and decided to jump in with both feet and say, “well, this is going to be the way. I’m going to earn my livelihood.”
It usually doesn’t start out that way. Most of the time, people have an interest in a form of art. Maybe they’re interested in certain types of sculpture.
Maybe they were visiting Japan or China, or the Middle East and they came across some object of art that they just can’t quite wrap their mind around. They’re intrigued.
So, they did a lot of research. They came up with a shortlist of different art objects that they are fascinated by. They got so inspired by this experience that they decided to craft their own. This happens quite a bit.
