I’m sure that thought has come to you as you made one wood turning product to another. You probably were creating all these products and items for friends and family members. Maybe you’ve given them away at work. I’m sure the idea has come up in some form or context at some point in time – the idea being how you can turn whatever you’re doing for fun into real money. Whether you’re making Sixty thousand dollars a year or several hundred thousand dollars a year, make no mistake about it. The wood turning hobby can replace your income.
Now, it’s very easy to see why this possibility is so attractive to a lot of people. Let’s get real here for a minute. Most people hate their jobs. There, I said it. The cat is out of the bag. That’s true. For too many people in the United States or elsewhere, their job is a daily humiliation. They’d rather be doing something else but unfortunately, many of the other things that they could be doing don’t pay as much as their daily job. So they show up, punch the clock, sign in and basically do the bare minimum just so they don’t get fired.
That’s the extent of job satisfaction many people have regarding their nine-to-five job. It really is a grueling existence for a lot of people. I describe this situation not just as some sort of American or Western European thing. This applies across the board. Whether you live in Southeast Asia, South Asia, South America, Eastern Europe or Africa, it’s the same story. Most people make a good living with their daily jobs but they know deep down inside that it’s not fulfilling. They know deep down inside that with everything else being equal and given the chance, they would rather do something else.
