If you work 40 hours a week. Your wage per hour should be $24/hour. So your paycheque will be around $750-800.
To earn $24/hour you need to be working in a field that requires high technical skills i.e. electrician, car mechanics, home builders, accountants...
Graphic designer usually go with $16-$18/hour.
So you have to find a part-time job (15 hrs/week) that pays at least $20/hour so you can make that $50,000
Don't forget this is just income. Take into account your expenses as well.
Just so you know, your income grow as your skills improves and/or you get more training and experience.
I earn $40,000 a year but I do the following to make more money:
- In winter, I offer snow removal. Make around another $400/month. For 4 months from December to March, I make around $1,600 extra
- I draw portraits from photos for $80 apiece per subject for people to use it as gifts. Make another $180/month.
- I work at night as a bookeeper at a garage from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM. Make another $320 a month.
- Saturday morning I tutor some accounting students for $25/hour. Make another $50/weekend.
Saturday afternoon and Sunday off.
Now you can do something else like selling cracks like people suggest but I don't think it's a good idea for your kids to look at you as a drug dealer.
I guess you're working as a freelance designer then make yourself exposed. Print out name cards, go to your local restaurants. Ask them if they want to redesign the food menu, go to YMCA, ask them if they want to design banners for their programs. Go to car modification shops to ask if they want to design catalogs.
If you happen to see some furniture people tossed aside on the street, take it home. Clean it up then put and ad to sell it. Make about $50 even $600 apiece out of nowhere.
If you see people gathering in the parks catching pokemons. Get some portable battery chargers and sell them for $30 apiece. The cost is $5 apiece. I did it last summer and made $500 in 3 hours selling these pieces of shit.
There are tons of way to make money. But for family men, it's a tougher battle to fight.
The service industry is perhaps the hardest way to make an honest buck, but it is low risk and you can do it over and over until you hit your goals. Staying in the game and not going bankrupt is the best way for opportunity to find you.
