Hobbies that pay off in jobs

The U.S. economy added 200,000 jobs in the first month of 2018 and dropped the unemployment rate to 4.1 percent, the lowest it's been in 17 years. That said, it doesn't necessarily mean everyone is excited about their job or what they're making. According to hiring site Glassdoor, wage growth was just 0.9 percent in January after peaking at 3.4 percent a year earlier. If your pay is stagnating and you're foundering in a job you need instead of excelling at a job you love, one of your beloved leisure activities could turn into the career of your dreams. The following are examples of hobbies that could become careers with just some time, education, and dedication. Wages and some other information are provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
