Side Gig?

In my thirties, normally work 9-5 with more software/product/project skills. Going to go on mat leave a second time. Wondering what type of side gigs do people do in these situations? And hopefully the side gigs will continue after I go back to work for extra income.
Thanks!

Because you're on mat leave that's basically EI. You're looking at cash jobs...

Most people I know took the time to basically take courses.

Are you the mat or the pat?

You really have to know what you are doing here.
A one hour job for a pro can end up 12 hours for a newbie easy.
The margins are not big enough to make any money.
"Customers" will constantly be calling you like they own you because they paid you some money some time in the past.

OP is in ontario, you need to be a licensed 310k tech to touch a remote starter legally here. College of trades will go after you.

eBay.

I just sold one of my old tshirts for $10.

LOL.

It seems like a joke (only ten bucks), but the tshirt was going to go to the donation bin at the local Salvation Army...
