Love sport but having a hard time taking part because your funds are a little low of late? We’re giving you our top tips for funding your love for sports and reaching your fitness goals.
The COVID-19 pandemic has not only affected the way in which we socialize, but it’s also put a damper on some of our favourite sporting activities. So how can you still pursue your sporting and fitness passions without breaking the bank? Here’s how:
TURN YOUR PASSION INTO A VENTURE
Flex your entrepreneurial muscles and turn your passion for sports into an income stream. The world is moving online, and YouTube sports commentating has become one of the avenues in which sports fans have managed to turn their passion into cold, hard cash through gaining subscribers and earning online.
OFFER YOUR EXPERTISE/SERVICES AT DISCOUNTED RATES
Are you a fantastic boxer? Have you studied in the sporting field you’re passionate about? Training, educating and sharing your experience can earn your money. Whether through hosting online classes or offering one-on-one fitness or sport training sessions, you can make money by selling your services at a discounted rate while doing what you love.
TRADE-IN SOMETHING OLD FOR SOMETHING NEW
When last did you declutter your home? There may be items you’re no longer using that could earn you some cash at your local pawn shop. What’s more, you maybe lucky and find the sports or fitness accessories and equipment you need you can exchange your unwanted good for.
