Now that the New Year has begun we are all looking to make fresh goals and start our lives fresh and for the better. One of the biggest changes a lot of us want to make in the New Year is often our career. A job is a massive part of our lives and it takes up a lot of our time. When it comes to making a fresh start we might want to ditch the office for good and try something totally new, and here are some of the ways you can do that.
Sell your photos
We all enjoy taking photographs of the places we visit and sights we see, and often these photographs end up in a folder on our computer never seeing the light of day. If you think you have taken some good quality images over the years, you can submit them to a site such as Shutterstock and sell them for a little bit of profit. Every time someone downloads your image they will pay you a small amount of money and this can be a good way to earn some cash for talented photographers.

When you have created your art you can use a site such as Etsy to open up a shop and sell your art all over the world. And when there are flower shows and fairs in your local area you can make a stand and sell your art in person! It can be a fun job and one which gives you the opportunity to be as creative as you want.

“At some point in their career, many people consider taking their career in a freelance direction.

Open A Cat Cafe
Who doesn’t love cats? You might have heard over the last few years that a growing trend is happening with cat and dog cafes, and if you are an animal lover this could be a wonderful business for you. All you need to do is work with a local animal rescue centre and bring some cats into the cafe to cuddle with customers, and if the customers like the cats enough they can ask to adopt them. It can be a great way to save animals and also run a fluffy, cuddly, fun business.
