What are the best side hustles that you've done while full time consulting?

I’m an artist so commissioned drawings and paintings, illustrated a book. On the STEM side, contract work for data scraping/analytics (in a non competitive industry) which is very lucrative bc ppl who can’t do it themselves think it’s magic and often can’t articulate their project needs well enough to effectively outsource to a formal firm. I also have some consultant friends who have drop shipping shops marketed on IG or amazon

Voice acting

Day trading

Food delivery. I make an extra 600 a month.

I keep getting rejected by Big 4. I have had, no lie, 9 interviews with Big 4 firms as an Experienced Hire, from internal referrals, in the past 6 months. All with rejections. What's going on here?

What's going on here? Right now I do compliance, using data, at MUFG.
