If you possess any of the hobbies, you just need to find the right channel to demonstrate the hobby and then figure out a way to monetize it.

You can create a website, run a youtube channel, facebook page.
You can use Amazon to recommend books and earn a affiliate income from the same.
Imagine you make $5 on every book that you sell as an affiliate and in a month you sold 1000 books. You made $5000.
This is an evergreen business. After 5 years, the reviews will be the same. This is a kind of passive income you are generating.
#5) Craft making, Handicrafts
I have seen many women who are very good in craft making and handicrafts.
If you have that talent, don’t waste it.
