Don't know how long it'll stay free, so make sure the Kindle price is still zero before you click the Buy button.

If you don't have a Kindle, you can download the free Kindle reader for various devices here: Amazon.com Help: Kindle Reading Applications
Thanks for letting me know, I downloaded it after seeing your post!

Saved some money dumpster diving, and finally close to finally getting my video blog up and started. Odds of making cash from it the first year are slim to none. After that, even if I make no money, tons to share [plus I can link it up to my other money-making sites.


I honestly believe that side hustling is one way that our country can become stronger for the lower and middle class and a great way to build compassion and cammaderie.
That's really cool. I wish you much success. Nothing better than doing something you enjoy , like creating art and getting paid for it.

I believe your last sentence too. I think many get comfortable with a full time paycheck, but sometimes that paycheck ends at some point...and even if someone has a really steady stable job a lot of people struggle to pay the bills.
This is why some people say the whole J-O-B stands for Just Over Broke.

The same could be true of a retired person just trying to get by on social security or a pension.

I don't care for the term side hustling, either.

I think that is the Millenials name for it. Surely, we can come up with something better to call it that makes it sound nice enough that everyone will like saying that is what they do.

Repurposing is HUGE!
Many who go to garage sales tell me they are looking for the worst old junk to make into something new, to sell. (Inspired, it seems after every big craft fair or show in our area flea markets, garage sales, estate sales, antiques stores do really well as people come looking for what they need to make their own.

Check out this one in Monett, MO https://www.facebook.com/Repurposed-...79056525522106
(Be sure to scroll down) Maybe the Chamber of Commerce in other areas would want to put something like this on.

It isn't my style but this is what some are doing: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/163185186473984880/

Would making homemade wine qualify?

I've got a few in my extended family who still dabble in innovative distilleries if you know what I mean.

We old timers used to call it "moonlighting". Does that have the right aura?

Default Moonlighting

To me "moonlighting" has the connotation of a part-time job which one has in addition to one's regular, full-time job or career. I had some moonlighting jobs during the 34 years I was a high school teacher - not every year but at various times.

Whether my conception of the meaning of the term is correct I cannot say, but when I have a bit of part-time work here and there I no longer call it "moonlighting" because I no longer have a full-time (regular) job.
