Question Do you have a side job?

I work from home for my main job so I've been thinking about adding a second job for some extra mod $ & such.

What do you do for a side job? I don't feel like fixing other people's cars on the side. I could do photography, but I don't have any fancy equipment so that's out.

No a real job, per se, but I do IT work for a lawn care company and they mow and take care of my lawn. No money changes hands. Been doing it for about a decade. It works out well for both of us.

I work at a hobby shop in my hometown on the weekends. I worked there in college and started back a couple years ago to help me through a rough time (career change) and help them out for the holidays; I stuck around because my discount kicks ass and I get to see the new stuff first. Also, I know my co-workers pretty well at this point, and I like wrenching on stuff and helping newbies out. I also get free stuff sometimes so that's cool. I'm down to more seasonal work now...just one Sunday every month until Christmas, and I get to keep my discount.

I'm a bit of a workaholic...at one point I worked three jobs, seven days a week. I have a really wonderful job now, but I stress about having two days off in a row, back-to-back. If that's your personality, a second job can grant you perspective and a change of pace from your main job, and you might even have a little bit of fun doing it, too.

I don't anymore since I was able to get a new job that pays better, but for about 18 months in 2014-2015 I worked as a barback for an upscale downtown bar on the weekends. The hours sucked (Fri, 8pm - ~3am, then Sat, 2:30pm - ~4am), but it was usually good for about $1k in tips over the course of a month.

It's actually a direct sales business we do on the side. I'm a mechanic and the wife is in the corporate world. The company has an auto bonus program that is paying for my M3 :-). If anyone has any interest in learning more about it hit me up. It's seriously life changing.

Seems like side jobs would be our main jobs if it paid the same.

OP you know you can rent very high quality camera equipment , if equipment is what is stopping you. Here in NJ Unique Photo Fairfield NJ rents every possible thing I am sure there are simeler companies by you.
I am retired Law Enforcement, my son (presently on the job) owns a high end COFFIE shop in Hoboken and I bake for him "Tom and Geri Cookies." I have a real estate license and work as a full time as a security office for the school system, not easy to make ends meet in Fn New Jersey can't wait till our Govenor eats himself into a coma.

Maybe I should try an Amazon store. How did you get it started & make it take off?

Being a mechanic, I could very easily do my primary job on the side, and get offers all the time.

Not worth the possible law suit. A wheel falls off, car kills somebody, in debt till I am put in the ground. Not even remotely worth it IMHO.
