I know how, but don't advertise, because I don't particularly like it. It's just something I happen to be good at. My family tells me all the time I should do it for money....

I don't. But the people I know whom did braids were making a killing! lol! I am talking about $400 to $500 per week untaxed! That just goes to show you that there is for the most part no need to be broke living in a capitalist society because there is always some type of hustle. wink mini

I don't do hair, but I do cookies, cakes, and pies on the side.  I rack up!

I thought about that. Do you advertise? Is yes how? If not, how do you get your customers?

Nope...no advertising.  Everybody I get is through my former employer, my sister's job (she works for the city bus company and those dudes love baked goods), and my husband's job.  The rest is just word of mouth.  I guess I do advertise in a way...I'll send a cookie sampler to one of my friend's employers and tell them to put it in their break room.  The next thing I know, my phone is blowing up.
