Check out pennyhoarder.com. They always have creative ways to get some extra dollars here and there that wouldn't necessarily be having another job. Though I think some firms will approve another job if you can prove there are no conflicts of interest.

D1 that sounds interesting. Do you know how can I find that kind of side job?

That’s what I’ve heard but trying to understand the typical workday to the extent that exists (i know it’s highly variable). Consensus seems to be 8-10, with maybe 15 minutes for lunch, 2 hours for dinner. And then try to sign off by 7 Thursday and by 5 on Friday?

Is this accurate or can some folks have much better? Asking mostly bcuz have a small child now.

I am 38, and the first baby came after two miscarriages so my chances are not great (especially chances of a planned age gap) But it doesn’t hurt to hope 😊
