If you're a creative person and you're not using that creativity to make a living...you're making a mistake.
A HUGE mistake.
The thing is, there are so many creative businesses out there and plenty of creative people making plenty of money from them.
Now, one thing you have to realize is no matter how creative you are...being in a creative business isn't all about locking yourself in your basement with the radio cranked up, all fun and games.
It's a business. And you've got to find customers with some smart marketing and promotions.
Don't get me wrong, you'll get to use your creativity to make money. But you can't think your creativity alone is going to bring you the cake.
Okay, now that I got that out of the way...I've put together a list of creative businesses -- ones where people make real money (and work hard!) Here's a list of business ideas and careers you can easily go after as a creative minded individual:
Become a Travel Writer
Picture Framing Business
