Use search tool & keywords, "winter work", "winter jobs" ,etc. plenty of fresh threads on this topic. Good luck. I'll paste a good one below

Oct/Nov

- Fall Aerating
- Fall Lawn Fertilizing/Winterizing
- Gutter Cleaning
- - Winterize Lawn mowers for people that cut their own lawn (winterize fuel system, sharpen balde, clean air filter, clean spark plug, change oil, clean deck).

Nov/Dec
- Florist delivery & sell XMAS TREES
-

Jan/Feb
-
- Tree Removal (downed branches from winter storms, requires chain saw)

March
- Spring Cleanups
- Spring Aerating
- Power Raking
- Window Cleaning
- Power washing


Just offer a list of services that you think people will bite on:
- Personal Assistant (run errands)
- Car Detailing (you pick it up and drop it off)
- Fence Repairs
- Junk removal (runs to the dump)
- Paint House numbers on curbs
- Install peep holes in doors
- Distribute flyers for other companies
- If your good with the computer try offering logo designs or web page design.


There are tons of ways to keep yourself busy in the off months.
or you can try working for someone else during the slow times.

Delivery jobs aren't bad to keep some money coming in while you pursue other "lawn" related work. I've done the flower delivery thing. The nice part is during our off-season you have 2 huge flower holidays, X-mas and Valentine's. If you try to get a retail job you'll discover that Jan/Feb are the 2 slowest months for retail as well, you probably won't get many hours as the new guy.

With flower delivery you also get to meet a lot of nice-looking women, makes the day go by better, IMO.

Heres a tip...........

I usually only hold 5- 6 co's shares at a time.
3-4 legit and 2 speculative. One of my specs went up 20%+ today alone.
It could easily go do down that much friday but comes with the territory.

Apple shares I bought last thursday at $55.00 ended the day today at $64.05. They were up a few cents on top of this in aftermarket. These will hit $75.00 by next friday and possibly $100+ by early Jan.

The key is to check after market/pre-market trading and overseas markets as they are a good indication "IMO" of what will follow.

Futures are my favorite but I wont go into details.
Dont say I didnt warn you. Buy some Apple shares. [aapl]
