This will definitely increase my down time and much needed relaxation.

What you need to get started ?
All you really need in order to get started in this area of business is a lot of knowledge about social media and a strong sales pitch.
In a single day you could create a website on which you can promote yourself and then start finding small and mid-size businesses that seem to be lacking in their social media approach.
Start approaching these businesses with a brief outline of what they should be doing differently on social media and of how you can help them execute this plan.
How I did it I offered a free consultation of a couple weeks of my social media service.
