    There was an internship a guy did here that was for a small PCB manufacturing company in Minnesota, He ended up pretty much installing the company a whole new network because they were basically in 2001 still. Flat network, old tech, old phones, everything. The story was pretty hilarious, basically did as an intern what companies hire network consultants for.

        With a funny business model. There's literally nothing stopping you from selling the service and then buying your own supplies and pocketing all the profit.

        Plus, there's way fewer houses to paint than they make you think. Most places, especially out here, are vinyl siding. You're better off buying a pressure washer on craigslist and offering to pressure wash houses at like $150-200 a pop.

          Good idea with the pressure washer. Like seriously good. Yeah, the guy called me three times so I picked up, talked to him for 15 minutes, then arranged an interview with his manager or some shit. It pissed me off so I'm not going to shop up. fuck those guys.

            It's a great idea. I did it for a couple of summers on the weekends just to pick up some extra cash. Get a gas powered one - even if you go new they can be had for ~200/250. Then walk up to the dirtiest houses that have decent cars in the driveway and offer up.

            I paired that with free vistaprint business cards that had my phone number - depending on the house/etc a lot of people would have me come back and do driveways or front porches.

                  Condos with concrete balconies are probably easy cash too, when i was in a townhome businesses would offer to do them for 100 bucks, which was almost worth it because the 3-4 hours i spent scrubbing it with bleach and a broom was awful.

                    ...damn, nothing around me is vinyl siding. But then again, most of the house are between 50-100 years old.

                    So there is always someones house being repainted.

                    Some days I wish ours was vinyl..

                          SCORE at the picknpull this morning, well kinda.

                          I found tan E34 all weather rubber mats (OE BMW) but the passenger front seat mat was nowhere to be found so I got the three of them plus a complete set of good condition carpet ones. mat gods why have you done this to me!!!! :( also swooped a bunch of other good condition small items.

                          also going to steal the pressure washing idea, or I could detail the cars - have the equipment to do both haha

                              floor mats are free LOL and they fit E28 pretty decent... the rubber mats from factory are very rare to find - had to have them.

                              also the 95 540i the mats are from has a 9/10 interior and leather door cards - just a heads up.
