Sell your calligrapher skills
But it is precisely in times of financial difficulty that many people rediscover and reinvent themselves to secure an income. And so was Meghan, who had serious calligraphy skills. It was something she did while she was a kid, and Meghan knew that this skill of hers could serve her right. She was in financial difficulty and she relied on her calligraphy skills for a long time. It seemed like Meghan had gained stability, although temporary, to afford her expenses while still trying to secure a role in films.
Having discovered this talent during her childhood, as part of her girls’ school handwriting classes, calligraphy became a gainful activity for her, in addition to her part-time job as a waitress, while she was looking for roles and showing up at numerous auditions. So, she worked at a place called Paper Source, a small company in Los Angeles, where she taught calligraphy, according to People. She also did freelance calligraphy and was invited to do at least one high profile project: Robin Thicke’s wedding in 2005. It was a skill that had helped stabilize her financially while she was still struggling as an actress.
