    full time when the heat cools off and grass starts growing again. But I'm also in college so I work that into my schedule as well.

    This is question has a fine line.

    What is full time? When your sole income is when your a LCO? Or when you put more than 32 hrs a week in?

    What is part time? When you have another job? When you have two incomes? Less than 32 hrs a week?

    I have two businesses that are seasonal. The first in landscape/hardscape and everything else in between. The other is from Nov - March which is taxidermy. I mount deer and other critters during the winter. Oh and I do a lot of hunting locally and out West. For ice management and plowing I bring back my guys for storms and such. I have to say I feel blessed that even in this bad economy I have thrived and grown. I just moved into a 1500 square ft warehouse with an office to use as my new shop and storage.

    Full time here. I try to do as much fishing as I can during the off season. I remember a few years back having one of my favorite fishing spots to myself while a rare southern snow was hitting the water. It was cold, but the crappie were biting so well.

    Full time here, pushing 20 yrs self-employed. Last few years when the season slows I have been working on building up my part time job, RyRo, Inc. A company I started based on my invention the Sprinkler Buddy. Here in FL, I can find things to do to keep myself busy pretty much year round. Live just far enough in North FL that I do get a little slow for about 3 months. I look a little more forward to the slow down each year as the years go by. lol
