Modeling as a side hustle

One of my friends said she has a side business building financial models for tech start-ups in NYC.

Does anyone know actually do this themselves or know anyone who does this? I would think most places would have someone on staff who would have those skills. I wouldn't even know how to approach a company about that.

I did this for a small company in NYC. The owner approached me.

Some companies need to map out their business model and operations on Excel, but don't have anyone proficient on their staff if it's a small company.

I did one project during my transition, but I don't have time and can't do it now with regards to a non-compete.

Came here thinking you were referring to the other modeling.

I hate to break it to you, but only 1 / 300,000 on WSO have posted a mirror selfie for us to judge, so he's the current winner, by default. If you want to surpass @Isaiah_53_5 though, all you have to do is post a mirror selfie of your own. Try not to wear a beanie

I've done this on upwork.com. In another case I showed a deal I put together (not one of my company's deals and one we would not compete on) to a well connected CRE guy and he has since thrown me modeling work and referred me to others as well.
