Anyone get a second job?
« on: October 23, 2017, 11:48:19 AM »
I currently work at home for a consulting firm and typically work 8am - 5pm. However, recently, someone from Vivint Solar came to my door pitching solar panels and here in MD they are free - no scams.

Anyway, we got to talking and they said they love working for them and I have been looking to do some side work. I was wondering how difficult this would be to do part time. My thinking was I could do 10 hours total Mon-Fri and then all day Saturday. They were saying if they get 7 customers a quarter they get around $7k bonus (plus regular salary which not sure how much) and it goes up depending on how many people sign up. This would be some great extra cash.

Any thoughts? I have never tried to take on another job while working full-time.

I've had a second job most of my working years.  I'm not really sure it was worth it as the hours I spent working meant I had to pay other people to do house/car repairs, at a MUCH higher rate than I was able to make...
