Find Yourself a 'Jobby' (Job + Hobby)

What Is a ‘Jobby’ (Job + Hobby)?

Sooner or later, everyone needs to work, whether it’s part time as a student or full time as a worker bee. One of the best jobs that anyone can find is a ‘jobby’. A ‘jobby’ is where you combine your job plus your hobby. Many people are very passionate about all of their hobbies but when it comes to work, their job is there to pay the bills, not to fulfil their life with passion and satisfaction. However, many people have now started to realise that they are not happy in life doing meaningless jobs, and have migrated towards new ‘jobby’ careers where you combine your favourite hobby with a full time job.

What Are Examples of ‘Jobbies’?

1) Wine: If you love to drink wine, you can pursue a career in the wine industry where you are paid to taste wine multiple times per week as part of your job and decide which wines your organisation should sell

2) Food: Many people love cooking and with the emergence of pop-up restaurants and lunchtime or night-time food markets, like Street Feast in London, this presents a lower risk, less expensive entry into the restaurant industry

3) Beauty: Many people love beauty products from creams to soaps to hair products however, people now realise that major cosmetics and beauty brands put harmful chemicals in their products. With the internet, individuals have started researching beauty ingredients and establishing homemade, all natural beauty products and selling to customers through the internet and beauty fairs

4) Fashion: Some people love to design their own clothes or follow the latest fashion runway trends and switch careers into the fashion industry where they can concentrate full time on designing clothes, choosing which clothes and brands a store should sell, getting paid to attend fashion week, or marketing and selling for a fashion brand

5) Finance: Lots of people love investing in the stock market, however they are not trained or qualified to work as a stockbroker or banker. Some people have realised that they make more money on the stock market than in their jobs, and give up their careers to become full time day traders

6) Yoga / Pilates: Many people love to practice yoga or pilates as a way to improve their strength and flexibility, or to de-stress from their busy lives. However, many people realise that yoga / pilates gives them great fulfilment, and they decide to work part time as a yoga or pilates instructor on top of their regular day jobs, or to change their career and work full time as a yoga or pilates instructor
