    I'm a full time driver but I also ref hockey on the side. Not really a traditional job, per say, but it puts some extra cash in my wallet and I get to see a good chunk of the province over the course of a winter.

    I have a friend on my route that is a chassis and engine builder, street rods, drag cars etc. I help him out from time to time. Not what I would call a regular PT job but close. We trade labor/parts, he recently built a nice 400 HP motor for one of my projects. The shop is probably a place I’ll be working during my retirement years. I actually spent today up there building a cart to roll around a 66 Chevelle body.

    Up until last year I worked for Nascar in the “Weekly Racing Series” as a Competition Director. That job could have easily been a FT gig, but I’m now officially retired from racing, well, circle racing. :happy-very:

    Sorry, I’m a life member of the Bowtie Brigade.

    But! My buddy does have a 67 Cuda in his shop getting a Funny Car style cage, it’s going to be a Beast!

    I worked two jobs for the majority of the first 7 years of my time with UPS. I'm a full-time driver now and sometimes wish I could work part-time in an Apple Store (if we had one near by) at night but it's nearly impossible to work a night job because sometimes we work late. Especially during peak.

    After 28 years at UPS, I work 2 part time jobs - 1st part time job is being retired during the week, and 2nd part time job is being retired on the weekends.

    OH wait- that would be a 24/7 job

    I am a full time driver but I also own a lawn care and landscaping business. So from March till November I am working two jobs. The tax benefits from owning your own business are incredible. Plus the extra income pays my son's tuition. I have three employees that work for me. Two full time and one part time. Been doing it for 15 years of my 23 at UPS.
