If you look at the picture, pressure washing doesn’t look like a glamorous weekend job; especially after completing an M.B.A. and an B.S.B.A. program.
However, this is the reality of many graduates coming out of college. The ideal scenario is to finish school, find a good paying job in their field, and you’ll be set for the rest of your life with 401k, compensation package, and Social Security.
Why take a second job, especially pressure washing?
Times have changed and you cannot just rely on one level of income anymore and must find different streams of revenue.
By the grace of God, I was fortunate to have a weekend job with one of my best friend’s businesses, pressure washing trucks for manufacturing businesses.
With this job, i have a better understanding interacting with other companies for partnerships for more business. That insight would not be learned had i not taken the second job.
Why not invest in the U.S. stock market or Crypto-currency for passive income?
The U.S. Stock market, more than ever, is extremely volatile that you cannot rely on a quarterly business report without a news article affecting a stock based on strictly opinion, in a positive or negative way. Growth stocks can be an exception, which requires a long term investment.
Long term investments are great; however, it doesn’t help short term problems, such as monthly bills, student debt, Mortgage, or even a family to feed.
They all play a factor, but it’s attainable.
In conclusion, do what you got to do as long as you see the bigger picture.
