Was talking to a buddy this morning who shared that he's gonna do a PT propane delivery gig. Another bruh had mentioned a side job where you use your pickup to do deliveries and Pickups for private party sales. Fridges and such. I've been ubering here and there but it's a beating at times. PS whatever you pay when you take an Uber, the driver gets 50 to 60% of that Uber takes the rest.

Ideas on side hustles? Anyone have anything they do?

Not Dereks jigaloo hustle... legit stuff.

Team up with a couple of buddies and start a local safe moving company. Finding someone to move a gun safe ain’t easy.

I looked into that Amazon thing. Apparently it's extremely competitive. Like you have to show up at a certain time and get in line to get a route. Which is fine I get that but I'm not looking for full-time work and that's basically what it is. Since you mentioned favor I looked into that that might not be so bad you actually get a guaranteed hourly rate

No kidding. I had a guy come over and tell me he would do mine for $25 once a week. You see my lawn dude it's pretty big I can't wrap my head around the math to make money doing that.

I had a nice pressure washing rig and made 3K a month. Rig was stolen in 2005. Make sure you get one with a deisel motor that steam cleans. I use to do three banks drive through and a sonic. Each took about an hour to do and I worked them after 8PM while the banks were closed. The sonic was done early sunday mornings. You would be surprised how much money can be made.

I've heard those rumors as well.

My full-time job pays about that. And that's good but I'm always looking for a way to spend free time making a little change and trying to retire early.

It's another 30 years until I can draw Social Security. But I'm tired already I don't want to have to work another 30!

I'm by no means perfect. But I do consider myself a moral man LOL.

That said I applied for an operations manager position with Los Zetas but they haven't replied.

Go back to school and become a nurse. You could work PRN. One of my friends does that. She works 9 days a month, 12 hour shifts... she makes $38/hr, but no benefits since she's not full time. Or learn another trade...

This only works in affluent neighborhoods where you can charge up to $5 bucks a tird. The going rate where I live is only a nickel, and that's for the whole pile.

I've got a career. And a pretty good one. I'm just looking for ideas to kind of make some cash on the side. You know with free time.

Buy stuff fix it up and sell it, lawnmowers, cars and trucks, tractors, trailers. Build woodworking and metal working projects to sell like furniture or BBQ pits. I like this type of stuff because I am not committed to anything on my days off. If I would rather go fishing or hunting instead of working on something I can. Plus I can still drink beer while working on these little projects.

No. $10/hr more than she was working nights. Nurses start out at $24-$25/hr around the metroplex, and shift differential isn't all that great. They make their money on overtime.

Where I worked the starting pay (new grads) was $25.75 / hr with three guaranteed raises that brought them up to $31.75 hour in one year. Night diff was $4.50 hour and weekend pay (fri night until mon 7am) was $6.00 hour. For example a nurse with one plus year experience could make Up to $42.25 hour. Expert nurses could start at $42-45 hour + diffs. Lot of overtime was available as well as bonuses starting in the fall through early spring. 12 shifts per 28 days was full time.

None of my friends are there, yet. They have been RN's from 1 to 4 years. The one that went PRN is an ED nurse. She did make $1000/day when she was asked to go work in Houston after Harvey hit. However, that was 24 hours a day with little breaks, she said.

Getcha a camper and a fire cracker stand and setup shop at some 4 way stop on some rural FM roads, maybe in the city limits if the town allows it. Have your wife a kids run it during the day.

Invent and create a product (let's just say a trolling motor mount) and put it on the market. It takes me a hour or so to completely put one together from my machinist (I do 30 - 40 at a time) and get them ready for shipping. Then I just wait for orders to be placed and off they go all across the country. The 60K per year will let me pay off my new boat in two years and I paid cash for all the major stuff (HDS 12 graph, Xi5 tm (with a LiftSaver of course), dual seats, anything else I want) for the boat/fishing.

If I advertised them in a national fishing magazine, I bet I could double the income but I already have a 100K plus job. Plus I invented/created a safety valve that will hopefully be in every compressed gas cylinder in the world and I am currently going through the development and patent process now. That one will allow me to retire very early. thumb

This ^^^^^, or Umps and Scorekeepers for city leagues or softball Umps get paid around $45 a game for an hour and ten minute game. Work the evenings you want usually 2 or 4 games. Work a weekend one day or two days the amount of games you want, or full weekend tournaments whenever you want.
You like softball, so this would be right up your alley!


Thats interesting thought. I do enjoy playing softball. Did not think they got that much.


You better have really thick skin if you want to go that route.


I get yelled at by people for living... So yeah your right, who wants a stressful side hustle lol.

When the first digital SLR cameras came out back in 2002-03, I bought one because I liked to take pictures. That escalated at hyper speed, had ties to the real estate industry, opened a studio, spent tons of $$, made tons of $$$, somehow ended up shooting rodeos and events. Got burned out, got rid of the studio, sold off/gave away a bunch of equipment and enjoy picking and choosing what I want to shoot. Now every little Sally Sue "is a photographer" with their iPhone. Once a passion, turned into a business, now the industry is so saturated with cameras, you can't make any money.

So yeah, I wouldn't suggest being a photographer.

My brother in law used to make extra cash in his woodshop. He would collect old fence panels when he could find em on the side of the road and use the slats to make picture frames and other crafty things to sell online. People pay good money for that "weathered" look.

Picture frames
Framed mirrors
Framed chalkboards
Etc...

It's more profitable if you already have the necessary equipment

I was in Lancaster, PA last weekend...I was thinking of setting up an Uber-Buggy service.

I'd take the call and dispatch a buggy to go pick up a tourist.

I'd call it Eli, Amos, Levi and Sons Buggy Service.

I was in Seattle Washington at Pikes market place, there was a guy selling cold water for a dollar.

He had a large ice chest full of them. Underneath the waters there was cold beer for a 3 dollar donation.

Pretty good return on his money.

I thought that was something Constables did... I googled that job. Very interesting but seems to be a FT thing not PT. Once they finally let me go from here and give me that fat severance package I am going to look into being a process server. Seems to be in demand.

AND I would not have to manage people. I am so tired of managing people. Getting grown arse, educated, adults to act like they are not in High School has gotten old. No more direct reports is a requirement of my next career.

as mentioned earlier,get you a pressure washer and start knocking on doors....most convenience stores need sidewalk and gas pump areas cleaned on a monthly basis....fast food places need frequent cleaning also...depending on the climate where you live,mould/mildew can be a big problem on sidewalks/driveways/patios and shaded areas of houses....

Window tinting has worked well for me for 20+ years. Low overhead and if you're good, customers will find you.

Or better yet, start a blood bank like American RedCross

Get people to donate the blood and then turn around and sell it

So you are saying go camp outside of Derek's house on the weekend?

Could be profitable.
