Side Jobs and Freelancing
I'm wondering what sort of side jobs or other ways of supplementing income other people in this community are using -- specifically stuff like freelancing or running an extra on-line or local business? How did you get started at what you do, what kind of start-up costs did you have and how much time does it take and how do you balance that with your primary job and family or friends? I'm working full time and get paid well, but we're having some unexpected expenses (dead computer, car repairs) and I'm looking for ways to supplement our income as my husband is going back to school. I just got a couple of nibbles about doing some freelancing in my field and I'm also thinking about starting up a small business on the side; something like selling natural body products or doing belly henna for pregnant women at baby showers.
