In the last section, we talked about the possibility of partnering with someone or finding other resources to help you with your activity. Depending on the second income source you select, you may need to employ others to
add different skills or to offer you services you don’t have time to perform.
As you think about the possible second income opportunity, consider the answers you gave to the questions about ‘Resources (can you do this alone, or will you require help?)’, above.
If you indicated that you WOULD need help, you should dig a little deeper into this section and figure out if you can get, or if you have, the additional resources.
Answer these questions:
What additional skills do you need to help you
with your second income job?
§ Financial (book keeping, invoicing,
§ Organization or scheduling
§ Funding or budgeting (money for
supplies, monthly budget for your work
e.g. gas, dry cleaning, etc.)
§ Receptionist/assistant (answering
§ Running errands for you
§ Assisting you on the job (as a gopher
or another pair of hands to do the work)
§ Advertising, getting the word out
§ Other (describe)
What will you have to pay this person to help
you do this job?
Will you have to provide uniforms, costumes,
supplies, etc. that might cost you money? If
so, what are these items and how much will
they cost?Who will fill these roles? You should write
down names and contact these people to ask
them for their interest and help before you
make a commitment.
Can you depend on this person or these
people to do the job, show up on time, be
there when you need them?
