Seeking to earn an extra $400-500/mo.
I work an 8-5 job as an entry-level professional. My evenings are usually chock full of other things I need to take care of, so I'd like a job that was a good stay-at-home job, something on the side (tutoring is a possibility, but I don't feel like I have any amazing test skills or anything, though I had great grades in college, not sure if I would feel comfortable teaching a subject?), or something on the weekend, preferably Saturday and Sunday mornings.
I don't have any special talents like dance, piano, web design, that I could hock for cash. I am, however, smart and organized.
Consulting work is out due to a pretty strict contract with my primary employer.
I have worked retail before, just not sure if the hours would mesh (or seeking an industry that would fit my preferences - i.e., a store that was open early in the morning on Saturday or Sunday?). I have no restaurant experience but am open to the idea.
I've trawled through plenty of threads on AskMeFi about this subject, but just poking around specifically for ideas that would mesh with my time preferences of weekend mornings or at-home work.
