Picking up a second job or side job — or starting a side business — can be a good way to recession-proof your life. Via NPR, here’s a list of ways to help yourself weather the storm of a recession. They didn’t specifically mention second jobs and side businesses (such as consulting), but I’ve talked before about how second jobs can help you get ahead. There are tons of reasons to have a second job, especially when the economy is looking a bit shaky. (Or incredibly shaky.) I’ve given examples of side jobs, but I have to admit that consulting is one of my favourite ways to generate extra money. I don’t know of any other side jobs that pay as well. Do you?
