Hello friends. Someone once said, that the education that will make you in life is the knowledge you acquire on your path to survival.
For anyone going into self-employment, your degree or the present knowledge of your hobby, is not enough for you to make it.
You have to acquire basic business skills - with emphasis on marketing, sales, business management, interpersonal relations and its likes.
Learning is a life-time career for the self-employed, at his/her own expense. However, some people fall into the trap of ever learning and never doing. I see it as fear in action.
What is your opinion on this? My challenge is still intact.

Hello people. @ oyb sorry for the delay in anwsering your question, it was an oversight.
You asked if food, sex, sleep and gaming are hobbies? Whatever you do for fun and/or relaxation is your hobby.
Talking about how to monetise your hobby is another ball game entirely. If people are ready to pay you for eating or performing any of your aforementioned hobbies, then go ahead - because it can be the breaking of the dawn for you.
My fellow country men - anything else to add?
