Hi my friends, In these difficult times some of us have to think on new ways to make extra money. I don't mean making money online, but making money from WORK NOT ONLINE. I have some serious problems to face because I'm currently unemployed, and I'm thinking about news ways. For example, I'm a reasonable guitar player, I'm thinking about playing in public for money (bars,etc.) Do you have sugestions? If it happen to you, besides looking for a new job, what activities would you try to make extra money (again, not online activities). Keep your suggestions coming! Antonio

Have you thought of contacting wedding planners and auditioning for them? If you are good, they are always looking for good musicians to play at weddings and receptions. I say this because my son and his fiancee are having a guitarist play for one of their singers prior to their wedding ceremony starting, while the guests are being seated.

Hello aefrosa. I am sorry to hear that you are currently unemployed. I think that your idea is workable by using what you have mastered in musical talent. I am a teacher in occupation. If I were in such a situation as you are in, I would also choose to do something based on what I am good at as a way of making a living like tutoring or doing some translation work for some firms and such. I wish you to happily enjoy yourself as much as you used to before getting unemployed. Things will get better soon. Live your life with great hope, my dear friend.
