Little known fact, if you push a runner bean seed up your nose the moisture will cause it to germinate, and expand.You wont get any beans though just  two black eyes. :o

New job - how do you earn quad coupons?

Previous topic - Next topic


So completely off topic here.
I am looking for a new self employed career.
I am looking for ideas  :D

I was trained as an electronic engineer, have been running holiday apartments for the last 15 years.
I am ok at most diy, do a bit of web development, db stuff, I'm fairly handy at mechanical stuff as well. Good with people, enjoy problem solving.

So any ideas or what do you do to earn quad coupons?

I try :-)

Funny you should say that, I did start A levels to be a Electronics/Metalwork/Wood work teacher. Then I started an MoD apprenticeship in electronics engineering.

Not sure I would be patient enough with kids, these days. Plus the training for me at almost 50 might be tricky. I do live opposite a secondary school and a college, so work could be close  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh: In fact the college is the main place I fly as I have permission.

I've been self employed for the last 15 years so not sure I could go back to regular employment plus my English language skills are bad. My mind works logically and I didn't learn the rules of English.  :D

Good idea though. One part of me thinks I was right to consider teaching when doing A levels. But then I wouldn't be where I am today!

I try :-)

You never know there might be a niche market for balding, going grey, slight bulge around the middle, gets the job done in a few minutes escorts. Well I least I hope there is as I don't know what else I'd do if I left my job  :D

Odd job man, sounds like you could do most of the things required.

Cheers all. Handyman sounds like a good idea. I do have lots of tools too  :D
Have done lots of flat pack, plumbing, electrical stuff (my first job after my apprenticeship was site electrician), decorating, etc.
Looking on Google looks like there are only a couple near me and there are a lot of people. So I will do a bit more research. We do need to sell existing business so might be a while  :D

I try :-)


check your local housing associations and council housing department, their usually quite desperate for odd job men as otherwise it costs them a fortune paying specialized sub contractors for silly things like changing hallway bulbs in flats and the like.

after I came out of work to look after my son (and my own failing health at the time) my brother in law who's business was subbing to the local housing mentioned my name and experience (time served plumber & mechanical engineer with 4 years of carpentry apprenticeship prior to that and just coming away from a job working as a Team leader for Toyota at their UK engine plant).... the bloody phone never stopped for about two days, Im sure the git did it cos I turned his offer of a job down beforehand :banghead:
