I'm trying to convince my wife to let me resume the male stud service I ran before we got married and I'm close. <br>I just forgot how to charge. I guess I will have to be a scrub stud for a while. Any ideas from the gallery. My equipment is slightly used but I can transport it in a small vehicle. I always use rubber handgrips so the risk of blisters is at a minimum. I don't want any competition so don't none of you guys steal my customers. :)

If I absolutely, positively had to work in cold weather, I'd consider firewood delivery, auto detailing, handyman stuff, landscape lighting, Xmas lights, interior landscaping, selling/leasing of indoor plants, pressure washing, gutter cleaning, shoe shine boy (don't laugh) try your bowling alleys, delivery services, tow truck, take out food delivery, shopping service, pet sitting, home sitting, secretarial services.....is that enuff? What skills do you have? What do you like to do? Start marketing at least 60 days prior to cold weather. Being a 4th generation Floridian, I just can't imagine all that white stuff, slush, slipping and sliding. Go for it!
