Recommendations on ways to earn a lil more for upcoming bills? Freelance? Restaurant? Dropship? Sports ref? Petsit? Affiliate?

Curious what other advertising/marketing/entry-level professionals have done to supplement income that isn’t based around stocks. :) I would love to utilize my learned media skills but not sure what is best in terms of time vs return. Thanks!

I do design work for local filmmakers, theatre companies, and bands. They don’t have tons of money but it is some extra. I got looped in at a couple of local community college theatre departments that pay much more than the indie companies, which helps.

Stay away from Starbucks, Home Depot and the local bar. They’ll suck you in. Freelance like a MoFo. Build relationships with clients. If you’re just starting out in the ad world…Start your exit in 20 years now.

I assume being a producer it’s harder to find side gigs that you can do in the evening.

My job is emotionally and mentally killing me. And now the raise we were given on our offer letter has been cut in half, so I am not making enough to live on.

I'm an introvert, so never been in love with parties to begin with, but my friend group are starting to host parties again post covid. I've had a pretty miserable time the last 18 months and pretty much have nothing nice to say. I like my friends and I value their friendship but i dont know what to say that wont make me a debbie downer. Any advice? Lie? Be cagey? Be honest? FWIW Im happy to listen to them drone on about their boring lives.
