Why Creatives Should Make & Sell Printables For Passive Income – They Get Bored Easily
Do you always need a challenge? Chances are that if you are a creative person, you need to create new challenges in your life because you get bored easily. According to an article I read on Google, “It’s not that creatives can’t hold down a job. They just refuse to hold on to anything that weighs them down.” And this is one of the reasons why creating and selling printables is such a great option for your creative side hustle.
Firstly, printables don’t take all that long to create. So, once you’ve created one printable to post on Etsy, you can move on to your next brilliant idea! Next, printables have such a low barrier to entry – meaning that you don’t have to put up a lot of money to get started producing and selling printables online. So, you won’t need to be concerned that you’re getting in too deep to something because you’re worried you’ll get bored making printables. That’s fine! You won’t have put in a lot of time and effort to get started selling printables anyhow! And that’s why creating printables to sell on Etsy (or elsewhere) is a no fail creative side hustle.
Lastly, if you get bored easily, creating printables to sell on Etsy is such a dream. That’s because making printables can be anything from party invitations to financial spreadsheets and everything in between. You will never get bored creating new printables that are not alike in any way.
Why Creatives Should Make & Sell Printables For Passive Income – They’re Independent
Creative people tend to be very independent. Can you relate? I sure can.
Being a creative person makes it hard to count on other people to bring your unique ideas and thoughts into reality. Only you could make it look and feel the way you envision it. Amiright? That’s why making printables is such a great outlet for creative people.
Making and selling printables doesn’t take a whole team. It’s just me over here making party printables, and that works just fine for my independent creative soul!
Creative People Have Fun All The Time
Okay okay, maybe this is a little overboard, but creative people sure know how to get creative when it comes to fun! We can literally take any occasion and make it a good time, no matter what is going wrong. That’s because we have creative ways to do things that those analytical people just can’t do.
One of the things that I found with creating and selling printables is that I was already creating these printables to have more fun and enjoyment in my own life, so it only made sense to sell them and bring them to more people. I was already having fun creating my own birthday invitations, wedding decorations, checklists and sticker charts for my own family and events, so it was the perfect way to bring more fun to other people’s lives.
Bring your Creative Talents to Serve Others Through Printables
The point is that being creative gives you a whole set of tools in your toolbelt that non-creatives just don’t have. And I hate to break it to you, but it’s your duty to use your talents and skills to help bring value into the world. And you do that by making things using these unique skills and selling them to others! Enter printables!
These very special characteristics that you have as a creative are meant to show you what your purpose is in life. And it just might be creating and selling printables online!
