Today we get to meet Pete, civil servant, film extra and blogger. Take it away Pete…..
1. Please, can you tell the readers a little bit about yourself – what you do/enjoy/where you live/family etc.
I’m 39, married with 3 children aged between 10 and 6. I work for the Home Office and have done so since I left university.
My wife is a childminder which she does from home, so our house is always busy!
We live in the South East and have done all our lives. My wife and I both grew up in a village, so we prefer a quiet life and the big city isn’t for us.
When I’m not running around after my family, I enjoy watching football. Oh, and a bit of blogging.
2. What is your favourite way to make money online? (Or offline?)
My favourite way to make money is working as an extra. Although there are long periods of waiting around, you get to meet some very interesting people.
Nearly all extras have other jobs, so you get to meet a real mixture of people. And it’s quite funny listening to them complaining about some of the stars they’ve worked with. Plus, the pay isn’t bad too.
3. How did you come up with the idea for your side income and when did it start?
I saw a Facebook message that a film company was looking for people to appear as extras in a movie that was being filmed locally around 2 years ago.
A couple of my friends and I decided to go for it. They both dropped out, but I thought it would be fun so decided to go for it.
4. What were your initial goals?
My only goal was to appear in a movie. Even just a glimpse of me would be something I would love to show my grandchildren in 30 years time.
5. Have these changed over time?
My goals haven’t changed. The back of my head is about the best result at the moment. I will keep trying until I’m famous… or at least you can get a glimpse of my arm or leg.
6. Tell us about your blog and what content you share with your readers.
My blog is a mixture of ways to save money and make extra. Although there is more content for working families, I try to write posts that appeal to a whole range of people.
7. Do you use social media to promote your blog and or side hustle? If yes, which platform(s)? Has it had an impact?
I use Facebook and Twitter to share both new and old content. I don’t have much joy from Twitter but get quite a few views from Facebook. Also tried Pinterest without much luck but haven’t bothered with Instagram.
8. Where can readers find you online?
And that concludes another interview.
Thanks to Pete for taking the time to complete this.
