The advent of the R B T in the early eighties sounded the death knell of the big bands. Clubs were experiencing lower patronage and higher overheads which brought about the duo's and solo artiste's most muso's experienced a downturn in their income although, the courtesy bus idea partially saved the day and created more jobs.
"Don't give up your day job" was a familiar quotation aimed at performers who didn't cut the mustard leads me to wonder if it was one of those aforementioned Jims who created several franchises such as the well known 'Jims Mowing', also 'Jims Cleaning', 'Jims Pool Maintenance', the list goes on.
My rambling mind could seek out endless possibilities to earn a crust using a Jim slogan.

Vesty. do you have any plumbing problems, i can do them for free for a w/e in sunny budgewoi, and a few beers in the local. I was a late starter but now qualified.

Wally: Plumbing problems are not planned and temporary repairs can be unreliable when you are waiting for the plumber to arrive for a genuine repair. During an emergency we would have to contact-- Oh No!! not Jims Plumbing.
So you will have to consider another job, alternatively mowing 5,000 sq ft of grass.
You could then become a lawn plumber - sort of just for the day.
