Beater Car Resale – I’m Timmy – my friends call me “Timmy the Greaser”. I like messing with old cars. Have been this way for years. I’m a senior in high school, pretty decent grades to get into a number of schools, and have no idea if I’m going to college, community college, or just getting off the world for a year or two. Regardless, I decided to start a Sideline by buying and selling beater cars. Ok – so a beater car is a really bad looking car, but the engine is in good shape — its been poorly treated. I can find beaters on Craigslist and other free places, check their compression, and then have a couple of friends clean up the inside and outside. Then I turn around and sell a beater car for twice as much as I bought it – knowing the customer is getting a good car because the engine is in good shape. Makes me happy. And this idea worked, sort of. Read more in the Extended Story.
Garage Update Service – I’m Betty, a self-proclaimed neatnik, when it comes to organization. In walking to school down my alley, I pass house after house with clutter filled garages, that don’t appear to allow them to be used for anything except storing stuff.

Jo & Bob
House Sitting and more– I’m Jo. My husband Bob and I are both juniors in college, going full time, and taking part-time jobs. Bob is British and I was born in India; but we are both American citizens. Except for desperation, would have never considered doing a Sideline. I’m in Education and Bob in Forestry so “money-making” as a goal has never been on our radar screen. Extended Story.
Ballerina turned Corporate Entertainer – My name is Kippy. From age 6 to 16 I increasingly became involved with ballet. Like lots of little girls, the dream of being Clara in a big-city Nutcracker ballet performance loomed as a goal for many of us in the dance classes. Click here for the Extended Story.
Getting Ideas from Others – Start a Courier Business – My friend Bo [not real name] played football at a top college, graduated, and gravitated to Las Vegas to have fun and make money for a while as a casino table dealer. Click here to read the Extended Story.
