  • Best side hustle for a firefighter?

    Looking for practical advice on the best side hustle for firefighters. In South Florida, I am one on, three off, so I have a lot of time and wouldn't mind finding another job that brings in some extra cash. What jobs do you guys do on the side and what actionable advice do you have about doing something on the side?

    Hey Ernesto,

    I have the same work split and have tried a few Different things to earn extra cash. I currently do some day trading of stocks and crypto currency. It definitely took me some time to learn the systems which make it profitable. If that?s a little too much of a gamble for you I also have been personal training some friends and family. I hope that helps give you some ideas.

      Thanks Jeff. I am not much of a numbers guy but do enjoy working out. How did you get into personal training? Do you work with a gym? How much can you make as a "side hustle" trainer? Thanks!

        I always loved fitness and workout at the station. I actually do private training in people homes. I charge about $40 for a one hour session and train about 5-8 sessions a week, so it definitely helps and can bring in some good money. The only thing I would recommend is that you get a certification before training as it helps you understand what you're doing haha.

          We have locals giving hitting lessons that were just average high school athletes. They make a killing sitting on a bucket and setting a ball on a tee while repeating phrases they hear on MLB network and Youtube. The parents wait in the car or facility with their faces buried in their smartphones. (A fool and his money are soon parted.) It's weekday evenings only cause they are travel team stars on the #2 team in the nation on weekends. Ever notice their kids always play on the #2 team in the nation, not #1 or #3?

              What do you want to do? I know several FFs who own landscaping business. One who is an attorney. many that work EMS on the ambulance, or work as special event medics. some teach at the college, others just do CPR.

              Or you can just do OT, complete a college degree.

              So the question really is, what do you want to do on your days off?
              If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

                I went with NASM but there is a bunch of them to choose from. This list will help you choose a top cert https://www.fitnessmentors.com/best-...certification/

                  Thanks drparasite I want to do something flexible so I'm fairly open to some of those ideas, but don't really want to start a business. But an attorney, that is the side hustle of side hustles! Jeff12 thanks for the notes, I am familiar with NASM and was looking at NESTA too.

                    Something you enjoy, or jo related?

                    Any amusement parks in the area?

                    Find another firefighter with a side job, and see if they need help.
