Many people have hobbies they can legitimately turn into a business but don’t know how or where to start. First off, you’ve got to look at your hobby. What is it? Is it marketable?

Too often people think they’ve got something great and they think, “Why wouldn’t people want this?” To an extent, it’s great to think positively and be excited about your product but the reality is everyone’s not going to feel the same way.
