Last week I was listening to one of Dave Ramsey's radio programs when someone asked him for ideas on second jobs. He listed several, many involving starting something small that one can do oneself like lawn mowing or dog grooming, and then he mentioned a job that would be perfect for this time of year--or any, for that matter.
A personal shopper.
Instead of someone waking up early on Black Friday and fighting with the crowd, they hire you to do it. Or, you may have a career couple who just doesn't have time to buy any Christmas presents. Ta-da! They hire you!
It's an interesting concept with an almost infinite realm of possibilities.
How much to charge? It's all up to you.
