So no matter what career path you take, if you don't make money, does that mean it's a hobby?
I wonder if your friend has a tax background? That sounds a lot like what I read about the IRS, that if you have your hobby-business and you file taxes as a business, you need to show income eventually or they can come back and say that you weren't really in business you were just doing a hobby.
