- Should I start a small business, maybe write a smartphone app, do some consulting, or ?
- Should I take a part time job? This area has low unemployment and there are lots of stores and businesses advertising for part time help.
The small business has that all-American entrepreneur thing going for it, and it is supposed to be a good way to reduce taxes. If I started doing photo-drone work, I could deduct the cost of all the replacement parts when I crash the drone.
The part time job has low stress and gets me out of the house - it is not nerve wracking to ask each customer "do you want a shopping cart?" or "move forward to the second window, do you also want a warm apple-flavored extruded burrito-thingy?". I also look good in a uniform, at least I did 50 years ago in Boy Scouts.
What do you think? Entrepreneur or minimum-wage service worker?
