    I work at a Gander mountain store part time as the archery tech.
    So when I am not working my full time job or working there I will build rustic furniture for friends. UNLESS its hunting season :bow:

    I hang wall paper for friends, family and by word of mouth. I use to have my own professional paper hanger business back in the late 70's and kept all my tools. Once you learn how to do it you never forget. I spent a whole year as an apprentice in 77 to get my license.

    I normally do a few jobs on weekends and evening for some extra cash.

    Downside is not many people these days hang much wall paper. I do get some odd request to hang different mediums though. This past summer I put cork in a little boys room. He tacked up stuff all over his walls and his mom was tired of all the holes in the dry wall. :) I have hung bed sheets and even area rugs on the wall.

    Cost to get started is minimal.. Knives, straight edge, level, brush, sponges, pails and paper table

    I teach an English class on line to Chinese students. Set my own schedule and only have to teach 25 minutes a student. Easy money and pretty simple.

    I work an additional 20 to 30 hours extra every month. Raises aren't coming easy in local government work over the past decade.

    I love thinking of businesses that take almost no money down but needs just hard work and time to let it the business build.

    My favorite right now is a door to door shoe shine service in higher end neighborhoods or daily fruit and vegetable delivery service.


    I'd love to have some kid put a nice shine on all my dress shoes 2-3 times a year and I'd love to have fresh bananas and fruit dropped off at my door every few days.

    With the time off that I have from my real job I mostly paint houses. But along with that I serve margaritas at weddings and such, move and install safes and on occasion I try to pick up an acting gig once in a while. Give or take around an extra G a month.

    Reduce and eliminate debt. Sell some junk you have in your basement/garage. Use the money to pay off and eliminate debt. Cut spending and use the money to reduce and eliminate debt.

    I thought about buying a wired hair weiner dog and charging people to help find their deer.

    No extra incentive to become National Board certified?
