Thinking about what you’re passionate about is one of the first things you should consider when deciding what sort of business to start.

After all, start-ups live and breathe their businesses, so you won’t get far if you don’t genuinely enjoy what you do.

If you’re pursuing a project on the side, how do you know if it’s a hobby or a business? Today, we talk to an expert to help you answer that question.

Elsewhere, the founders of boutique shoe label Aleeyas explain why their business is unlike any other, and Michael Folmer Hansen asks whether US start-ups have an edge on Australian ones.

Finally, entries to the 2013 StartupSmart Awards close tomorrow, so don't miss out.
