    Thumbs up 2nd 3rd and 4th jobs?!?!

    I get to start training in a couple weeks for my new FF position here in KY. I have been talking to a number of FF's and almost all of them have 2nd and even 3rd jobs. I own a small contracting firm for audio/visual for a couple years and done okay at it, but I never realized how much time I would have to spend at it on my off days. I also want to join the volunteer unit in the town I live in outside of Nicholasville. So I would have in essense 3 jobs. FT FF, PT contracting and PT vollie. Even with all that (besides lack of sleep) I should be able to spend plenty of time with the wife and (kids soon to be on the way as my wife works for my contracting term and she is also good friends with the bat chief's wife (thats how I knew about the job in the first place).
    All that to say, I can't believe a job could be so perfect that I could do three things I love (FF, audio engineering, and loving on the wife) and still make enough to provide for my family without being stressed out and ****ed off everyday!
    Isn't that the most awesome thing ever?!
    What kind of 2nd jobs do you all have?

    PD
