I'm going to be a junior in college next fall and I'm thinking I'm probably going to move a couple of hours away from home and try to take on more responsibility (as far as rent, food, gas, bills).
Anyway, I'm trying to decide if I should start selling homemade things or if I should get a hourly job - or, ofcourse, mix the two.
I've been looking into etsy and it is really encouraging to see some of the numbers from people who have been on there for a while (as far as their amount of items sold and what they charge for things).
But, is it worth it I guess is what I'm asking. I mean, we all know how much time goes into crafting things. I'm going to need a decent amount of money to pay for rent and bills and groceries - is there a chance of making anywhere close to say 800 - 1000 dollars a month just crafting or crafting and working 10 - 20 hours a week? Or should I get a 30 to 40 hour a week job and just craft for personal fulfillment?
Any opinions/ideas/recommendations would be appreciated.
I have my yoga teaching certification and I'm going to be an elementary teacher. If anyone has any good ideas for part time jobs that would go along with a school schedule, I'm always looking for ideas
Thank you in advance
