    Side Hustle - "Something you do outside your traditional job to earn money in order to pursue your main interest"
    I wondering if anyone has any interesting side hustles to earn extra money to feed their stacking habits. I know that people do a variety of things to earn extra cash such as freelancing web design, proof reading and blog writing. I have imported trainers (weird but quite profitable for a time) and currently work as a venue manager in my spare time. I still like the idea of importing/creating a product to sell online.
    What's your hustle (so that I can steal your idea and be rich)?

    The 2017 bullion sov is a special one because of the privy, and I'll have to get myself one at some stage too.

    onlyroadtoheaven got a reaction from SILVERFINGER in Royal Mint Experience Review   
    I visited the RM experience last week. It is well worth doing if you are in the area (wales). The tour guide was brilliant and it was interesting to see the coin machines at work. It now costs £5 to strike your own £1 coin - as I happily spend £1000s on coins with goats etc on them I felt £5 to strike my own coin easier to justify in my head.
    Unfortunately you don't get to see where they package the mail orders (big issues with lighting in that room ) or the room they paint the milk spots on, but a cracking visit for us coin geeks nonetheless.
    Do I get bonus points for using the search function of this forum to go back a year instead of starting a new topic?

    I have 2 of these to sell to the first to respond on here. £260 delivered. 
    They are from a tube (as per previous sale) so I don't have any cases for them. They will be wrapped but no bow  
    Paypal F&F preferred. I can only post to the UK and I can post them day guaranteed but can only get to the post office on Thursday. 
    Many thanks

    onlyroadtoheaven got a reaction from AlL in Goal - Financial Independence In Ten Years   
    Just an update on my original post and strategy, thanks to some great advice on here, especially @Roy - I have advised Theresa May to make him chancellor to sort out our debt crisis.
    I will not be buying any more PMs until there is a clear indication of where they are headed. My AIM shares have been spiking in both directions so will be investing in FTSE for more stable returns and dividends. Will also invest in P2P lending where the rates seem are strong. Savings going well except for my new rescue cat who has medical issues - animals are not good for this plan to work properly. My wife is cheap so hopefully this cancels out the extra cost!
    I have created lots of spread sheets and treat the plan like a business, studying its progress to keep my interest and motivation high. My next step is to find a 2nd income stream/job to compliment my full time job which will go straight into savings. This part is tricky with no practical skills.

    OMG, that be fighting talk and will get you banned from the forum  
    Thank you for the links on your PM. The 2nd one seems particularly interesting and I clearly need to revisit property.

    India. Great people, great culture and some stunning scenery. Its one of those places that just magical. I especially like the southern areas (Kerala) as well as Mumbai for that bit of crazy. The fact that they are obsessed with gold underpins my choice.

    onlyroadtoheaven got a reaction from RogerBelmar in Retirement...   
    None of my team at work pay into the pension. They are all in their early 20s and tell me that they are more keen on saving for a deposit on their house. I have tried to explain how wonderful it is to visit the figures after a few years and see how much the pot has built up but they aren't interested.
    Interestingly they can afford total bad from the shops for lunch and phone contracts that are in stark contrast to my £5 per month Giffgaff. I don't necessarily blame them, its the way of the world where contrasting priorities seem the norm.
    I know not all of the younger generation are like this however I think the "I deserve" / "I am entitled to" / "I must have it now" culture which came along with the weird celebrity culture is a real distasteful curse on our society. 
    The book, The Richest Man in Babylon, is so simple but says everything you need to know about retirement.
    Rant over .... back to the TV to watch Celebs Go Dating on E4.

    Careful - Perth Mint will get in on the act and do limited edition sacks of Wheat. The Royal Mint's sacks would go mouldy.

    I really think this trial by forum is in bad taste. Fine if its a rogue seller that we need warning about but Chards and Atkinsons are the good guys - I would just sort it out with them on a personal basis and do it with dignity. 
    23 posts and most of them are about perceived poor customer service.
