Another thread inspired this thought, in the best tradition of Scott Adam's former "Lazy Entrepreneur" website.
Here's an idea for you semi-retired ERs looking for self-employment... if people can hire personal services & even personal shoppers, then there has to be a niche market for personal phone service. VOIP even lets us access a national market!
You could "network" with your client, gather all the documentation & details, make the call, and as soon as you get through to the customer service rep you could announce "I'm faxing over a power of attorney and I'm earning $20/hour from my client so I'm in no hurry to wrap this up. Hopefully you've had a recent bathroom break and a fresh cup of coffee. I'd like to discuss your company's customer service response in the following situation... why, yes, I'd be happy to hold!"
