Yes, it's nice to have choices. And when there aren't any $1000/weekend gigs, what then?

$1000 a weekend. I suspect you do fishing charters or something like that. I don't own a boat and even if I did I live 300 miles from the coast. So what do I do?

If it was me, I'd take the $22/hour job and do the weekend gig. I can't figure how the one would prevent the other.

If you know how to find something that pays $1000 for a weekend, mind telling me where and how?

If a bit more Monday-through-Friday effort spent on marketing can get me
to $2000 a weekend (which is about the maximum I can fit into the
schedule) then even $40 an hour starts to look pointless.
