    What do you tech bros do for side hustles ?

    Genuinely curious as I’m trying to career jump but I want to know how you’d leverage programming/software engineering into your own business ?

    I know there’s software consulting but doing contract work and consulting aren’t you competing with kids in india ?

    I don’t want to work for someone else the rest of my life DFS

    I'd say programming is one role you wouldn't mind working for someone else for the rest of your life if you're good at it. My best friend is a great programmer who always works <30 hours a week while being remote, and he works whenever he wants to basically (sometimes he pulls all nighters on the weekends because he just likes doing that). He also rarely has meetings.

    When you're a good programmer, you literally setup your own rules and work-life balance because you are that valuable to the company. If the company you work for doesn't pander to you, well... those 100s of LinkedIn Recruiters in your inbox when you're an experienced & skilled dev would be more than willing to respond and get you a role in less than a few weeks.

    Starting your own consulting company in any industry can be a career. But there can be nuisances to deal with from my experiences.
    -Sometimes long hours
    -Companies calling you at odd-hours for requests/needs
    -Companies not paying you on time so you have to go deal with it
    -Finding clients & setting up terms
    -Lots of meetings
    -Dealing with people who might not be the brightest

    Also: no matter how you slice and dice it, most of the time you will always technically work for someone. What you're probably looking for is flexibility based on your own desires, like in my friend's scenario.
    If you start your own company with some app/software solution, you probably have funding from someone (investors).
    If you consult, you have to answer to the clients.
    Etc.

    You're switching from the trades in San Diego to tech?

    Your early move I believe would be to leave San Diego, as the economy is forever crippled and 60K jobs are difficult to find here and rent is almost at $3K per month.

    Then after that go on with your game plan.

    On average if you look at job postings. San Diego isn't even on the lists for good paying jobs for accountants.

    They pay on par with Oklahoma. Nothing wrong with that except that the cost of rent is around ~$3,000 in SD.

    Sometimes jobs pop up that pay 60-70 but those are fairly uncommon.

    Then you have a miracle job pop up once in a blue moon.

    I got lucky though. Just kept getting promoted, so haven't relied on ****ty job ads for years.

    Believe me when I say this though. $60K is considered "big money" in San Diego. This is how **** the wages are.

    If you make that little, you are living in poverty here unless you own a house or have multiple Mexicans living with you as roommates.

    Believe me , jobs in SD pay is garbage compared to the other city in California .
    CA is notorious for being known to pay their firefighter very well however, SD pays the LOWEST in the whole state and is one of the busiest city.
    Go figure.

    This guy gets it. Basically look at it like this:

    $60,000 x 0.7 (net wages) = 42K / 52 weeks = $807 per week.

    That is what's known as a slave wage in So-Cal. Unless you plan on living 2 hours away in Riverside county and drive everyday for poverty wages in San Diego, be my guest. Lots of desperate liberals do it, that's the reason why Temecula costs over $600,000, but there is zero local economy. Retards have ****ed up the state.

    Yeah most jobs don’t pay a dime over 60-70k if you’re salaried here.

    You’d think being a tradie at the moment I’d be worse off financially but you’re actually doing better than most here believe it or not as one. Especially with some OT.
