Not every hobby is a side hustle →
I linked to this in my last newsletter but it’s worth sharing again. Anne Friedman on doing something just because you like doing it:
”At a time when Etsy shops and craft fairs and food trucks are decidedly mainstream, every domestic hobby is at risk of becoming a side hustle. I don’t want to boil and slice eggs for money. Messing around with a stand mixer or a sewing machine is fun for me because it’s not work. Personal pleasure is what makes a hobby a hobby.”
I’d add that something stops becoming fun as soon as you make time for it because you have to, rather than because you want to.
