I love companies like Uber, Airbnb and Etsy. I love that businesses can be run from a cell phone and people can make ends meet (or build a savings!) with a “side hustle.” I’m constantly inspired by stories of people waking up at 5am to write before going into the office or deliver pizza at night to help them fund their dream venture.
We live in such an exciting time of professional possibilities and the longer I’ve been out of college, the more convinced I am that as a society we need to toss the expectation that a 9-5 is the best career for everyone, or that you’re supposed to land your dream job right out of school–or even know what that would be.
I hear countless stories from frustrated friends of all ages and industries wanting to make extra money while they work, transition out of a job, go (back) to school or fund a much needed vacay. Maybe a desk job just isn’t the right fit for you, you need a more flexible schedule, orrrrr…you just need more of that kid magic in your life.
May I propose working as a part-time and/or on-call caregiver for Meredith & Co.?

If you’d like to enrich your life professionally, personally and financially by working with kids in the Santa Barbara area, I’d love to chat with you more! If you’re already sold on the opportunity, click here to apply.
PS. I know I’m repping the 100+ Neutrogena sunscreen in this post, but I was just introduced to Sun Bum–have you heard of it? I’m so eager to give it a try!
