HENRICO, Va. (WRIC) — The next time you enjoy a Nascar race or a Flying Squirrels game, you might see Jennifer Ellett.
Her side hustle is working the crowd at public events.
“I worked the stage for Miranda Lambert at John Paul Jones,” says Ellett, “You know, that’s pretty cool.”
Ellett works part-time for RMC Events.
She uses the extra money to make life more comfortable for her family.
“Summer vacation. I have a brand new car. It pays for numerous things,” Ellett explains.
The mother of two, who works a full-time job with Henrico County, says she made more than $5,000 dollars last year.
Ellett adds that the gig also pays her with perks. “You can work anything from NASCAR to State Fair to a rap concert, country concert, rock concert,” she says, “You can see sporting events. basketball, football, Squirrels. You name it, we do it.”
RMC Events’ staff do everything from scanning tickets to seating audiences. Part-timers start at $9 dollars an hour but can earn more by referring new hires. The work is extremely flexible. You choose the hours and events you want to work.
“Some weeks it’s 4 hours,” explains Ellett, “If you wanted to work all weekend you could. It’s your personal choice. So it’s very flexible. It works great for my family life.”
So does the extra income. Ellett says it enabled her family five years ago to go on their first beach vacation. They now take that trip every year.
Ellett adds, “There’s never an event that’s ever the same. It’s always different. It’s always fun even when it’s hot, even when it’s cold. You have fun. It’s fun and it’s a fun way to make money.”
