ha i was honestly doing this about 10 minutes ago. sometimes you get lucky. there are little odd jobs that pop up here and there. me and a couple friends did a job for some lady one time and she was loaded. she paid us 200 a piece for the day and we only spent like 5 hours in her hard moving things around and pressure washing her giant ass fence and deck. she even brought us lemonade and fruit trays periodically.
another time my friend sniped an add where this asian family straight from honk kong wanted him to drive these kids around and keep them entertained, set up fun little days for them while their parents were on business. he got like $1,200 for 5 or 6 days of that. he said it sucked, cause he put in a lot of time booking appointments and scheduling, but after that week having 1,200 for just driving around some asian children and entertaining them i'd say it's well worth it.
i dont know how it'll work in terms of finding stable, long term jobs, but it's definitely great for odds and ends. there's always people looking for guys to do something for them.
