Need some help need a little boost would love to hear from you send us an email ask Jill Jill on money dot com okay level we get comments about the hot that shows that we produce N. on our sister podcast Jill on money we had a great episode with Chris gill about who wrote a book called one hundred side hustles and Robert followed up and said the subject matter really hits home with me years back I think the side hustle terminology was actually moonlighting yeah for example people would leave their nine to five corporate jobs and go directly to work at some small business or retail shop in the evenings a couple days a week or during the holidays in my case the site has came kinda naturally growing up in the sixties and seventies in the Houston area I was a percussion player drummer and played many shows in gigs around town when it came time to get serious and make a real living he puts it in quotes as my parents would lecture may I ended up getting an accounting degree and my CPA while and then went to work for a major CPA firm and finally one of the super major oil and gas companies I retired four years ago after thirty two years during my business card career I wanted to continue playing music and I've been playing seriously since early elementary school who just be very difficult to walk away from it so I love this I continued accepting music jobs but was careful not to let them interfere with my accounting in C. P. A. work it really did work I can't tell you how many times I had to go directly to the music venue a Country Club hotel theater from my corporate work change into my tax and get ready to play the gig by seven PM it was all worth it not only financially but now that I'm retired from the corporate world I can continue playing music to make a little golf money and enjoy hanging out with all my musician friends but wait I had another side hustle being an accountant CPA mostly specialized in tax compliance and planning so of course I accepted a few individual clients over the years I was busy during tax prep season doing most the work on Saturdays and Sundays again never interfering with my corporate work music and accounting is a great combination of professions what did I do with the extra shekels iron from my side hustle the moonlighting mainly was earmarked for savings and investment in getting my son through college and law school that any debt thanks for all the great work you and mark do and the financial information you provide Robert from Houston I love that that is so awesome it's so funny because I agree I think that there is a there's something about having like a separate part of your life that has nothing to do with your real job your nine to five job I think it's so I don't know it's like it makes you happier in your job in some respects it's something of your own it's something that you can control I think that that's I think it's like key it really is so doesn't mean you have to be an entrepreneur it doesn't mean you have to do a ton of other stuff that's gonna make you crazy just for fun sometimes in a little extra money it's pretty good not that okay this is a note from Linda her husband passed away in June and she said she filed for his social security it's now the fall still nothing huh we both took our social security at age sixty two I should be receiving his social security I'm she said that she went to the office she called can you direct me to a lawyer hi yeah hi we think about this one mark I don't know if you need a lawyer I think you might have to go plant yourself in the office and you could do with a friend do it by yourself just because it sounds like you're really at what your wits and you know we don't make great decisions when were at our wit's end I really began to go and Christine works for you PS as a trailer mechanic recently divorced fifty three no kids no home that she owns she says the retirement options have change were now going to have to wait until we're sixty five so no more thirty years and out the option I'm faced with is to take retirement at age fifty five and a four point eight percent hit until sixty five I qualify for health insurance then you get your on engine okay having a hard time I don't know if you need a financial adviser I think that what you really I I don't understand why you wouldn't just keep working that's the that's the question I am I think that there is something about working later or with a tax that's to I know this is a really tough one and I think what you need is.
