Turn your side project into a money-making business

Let's be honest, being part of the web industry is great, isn't it? Many of us are privileged in working for ourselves or as part of a small business. By and large we are all passionate about what we do and enjoy working on client projects. They are fun, fulfilling, occasionally give us scope to push the technological boundaries - and ultimately enable us to pay those all important bills.

In spite of this, it's hard to think of anyone - be they designer or developer, or a mix of both - who isn't tinkering away on one or more side projects in their own time. The joy of creating something that is truly your own is very appealing. A project where you call the shots; a project where you can try out new ideas; a project whose success or failure depends solely on your input.
