$$$How do you guys make a living?$$$

Post by neonmansion » Tue Feb 19, 2013 11:57 pm

First off, I am sure many of you still live with your parents and are going to school so this might not apply. Personally, I still live with my parents but must pay rent and I am looking to move out in a matter of months.

What do you guys do to support your music hobby? If it is music then perhaps its not a hobby.

Anyway, currently I teach part time at a variety of music schools including a middle school where the pay is halway decent. I do roadie gigs for entertainment companies and I am looking for a job at Starbucks for stable income. All this and I still really can't afford rent in NYC.

I also sell beats and do dj gigs but right now it is too seldom to be any real money. I hope to change this ratio by the time i am 25.

SO thats me. What do you guys do for money??

Proper job; 8-5, Mon-Fri. I hate it but it funds everything I want/need.

I'd like to switch to something I enjoy more and that isn't as tiring but the pay would be less, so atm I'm sticking with it whilst I nurture my production into something hopefully/unrealistically more than a hobby.

Shit adds up.

I go to McDonalds every morning around 10am and buy about a hundred 1$ breakfast sandwiches. I keep them in those delivery pizza bags so they stay warm. Then at 10:30 when they stop selling breakfast, I sell them outside the front door for 2 bucks a piece until the run out, get cold, or the cops come.

law student. I believe I could get a decent job in the field since I speak english and spanish and I go to a decent law school plus all my tats can be hidden using the everyday suit, but for now, odd audio jobs, playing nights, hopefully start my own and tune sales are a way of income, I rather depend on my parents so I can focus full time on school with a few hours per week on production.

I work like a dog (was doing 100+ hour workweeks) and just try to cram in learning at any juncture possible. I try to keep my learning curve as steep as possible because I only have so much time... but over the past three years I've actually come a long way (though most could have gotten there in a year having proper time :/ )
