What do you guys do for side jobs or extra income?

I currently have about 50 residential clients here in Utah. On a good week we get them done in 2 days which leaves the rest of the week open for other projects and ventures. I was wondering what other jobs everyone has, or what other fields they have been involved in. I am curious to find out what other array of businesses and jobs people are involved in. I have recently started a small side business washing windows. Here in utah with the dirty rain that we have its been a decent side gig. Let me know what you guys are involved in. Thanks

maybe i will trade in my m203 launcher but that still leaves me with the problem of the flash bangs. since these are hand thrown. is there a flash bang that is used in a launcher?

as we digress

Hi athep,

It sounds like you offer some good services. You could also take the time you have off and use it to further advertise your business.
