Default Side Hustle

After years of cockpit conversations, it has become apparent that collectively we are an industrious group. Pilots love their side hustle. I have talked to guys that practice law on the side, own rentals, own franchises, originate mico loans and run retail financial service companies. I am curious what you have heard. What is the most interesting side job you have heard about? Anyone have a great side hustle they are working?

I do the rental property thing. It's not exciting or glamorous but it is easy (most of the time) and having someone else pay for you to build equity is great. I use a managmemt company which eats into profits some but then all I have to do is cash a check each month.

Most left seat guys are in the Top 1%. How much is enough? I tinker in my garage, water skiing, snow skiing, cruises, camping, hiking, learning how to Grill meat to perfection (trying different marinades & ageing the steaks & searing) and MOST importantly....spending quality time with family & friends. My most conservative retirement planning has me checking out at 95 with $25,000,000 going to waste.

Work less, spend more & enjoy your 180 days off a year.

It's called being diverse, multiple streams of income.
