I may have found my nitch.
I've been working as a Flood Adjuster in NJ for Hurricane Sandy for the last couple months...
Working on your own schedule, but typically long hours for short duration.
(10-99 work) But it pays per performance (And very well) which I like.
I'll take a little wile off soon (Probably be done here in a couple weeks) and I'll relax a while, burn some of my GI bill picking up other certifications, and I expect the floods in the midwest will be in full swing by then.
It's a nitch market that may appeal to some people, You can get your Tx adjusters license online for $200, it may take some doing to get your first job, I was fortunate, but when they are swamped like with sandy...
