If I may ask a question..... do you prefer Flippa over Go Daddy auctions?

I keep myself within my skill and talent set, yet apply them to long-term projects. 

 

Within 30 days, an eco-educational text will be coming out. A nice 100-pager.   A three-year project has resulted in a 465-page, 126,000-word Novel. That one is scheduled for release in January 2021.

 

These are "side jobs" that are start-finish, can provide residual income, and are a pleasant integration into my business writing day.

Net. Pick a long-term project that will make you money.  Let your "side hustle" be strategic in nature, enjoy the ride, and make money with strategic time frames involved. Risk more, make more and let the daily work take care of the rent and food.

Bugger that. My PhD proposal has just been accepted and I've done most of the research for an historical biography since lockdown.  (I've also embroidered two cushions but that isn't interesting.)

 

I'm much too old to make it all about money.

 

Upwork is the side hustle from now on, especially as I have some work in a place that offers less headaches. I will be back to insist on being called 'doctor' though.

Congratulations Kim (on the acceptance).

Thanks, Nichola.

 

Maybe later for pics... once they're less flat-looking :-)

I've recently discovered the beauty of vintage handstitched needlepoint, I free them from their boring old wooden frames and turn them into funky bags and pillows. If you'd like to see them in my Etsy shop, please PM me!
