Hey Temple, Killeen, and everywhere in between! Listen, my name is K-Lew and I am new to Killeen, Texas. I am a wife, a mother, and I wear every other hat of a professional you can think of just like you. After a ton of searching, I found the perfect fit here at Townsquare Media, but during my journey, I considered a number of side gigs to help me get by, and I actually kept a couple of them. Today, I thought I'd share them with you.

A Little Back Story

When we arrived in Texas after my husband got those lovely anticipated PCS (Permanent Change of Station) orders to Fort Hood, we packed up and made the move across states to unpack and discover. One of the ways I can relate to many of you, as a military spouse, is having to leave my job. I understand having to hesitantly put in that two-week notice, or submit a transfer request to continue work (if the company you work for even has a location in your new area, right?). If you are a SAHM-I-AM like I was, just starting another initial dreaded job search in general is daunting.

 But, Did You Think of This?

Stay with me here, because I get it - you want to contribute to the family financially, and yet have the flexibility in your schedule to still be able to be there for them. Let's also throw in the fact that if you have children, child care in today's economy is more than some of our rents and mortgages okaaaaay?!

Raise your hand if you've asked this question in the last week, or even month:: "Who's hiring?" This question gets asked a lot. I know this because when I started my job search here in Killeen, I asked it. What I didn't really think about was the abundance of work-from-home, side hustle/gig work that is available out there. You just have to think outside of the box...or building.
