When you think about the enormous shortage of electronic technicians in the United States, you realize that there's lots of opportunities out there for anyone with entrepreneurial leanings to make money.

For instance, maybe 15 years ago I recommended that hams interested tn making a few extra bucks could do worse than get into selling alarm systems for homes and commercial buiidings.
