I work at a barber shop.
Two days ago, an old friend of my father asked me to give him an haircut at his home.
I went to his home and gave him a haircut.
He insisted to pay me, and I got paid two times more than my hourly rate at the barber shop.
Unfortunately, I cannot afford to start my own barber shop.
What do you think about house calls? Can I make a business out of it?
I want it as a part-time business, at this point.
If you could get clients easily, would you do it? as a second job?

Its just basic form of freelancing. Occasionally you would find client that would want you to go to their place to give them a hair cut. Those type of clients wouldn't mind paying a little extra for the convenience . I wouldn't recommend quitting your day job over it.
just keep your options open, get some business cards, network a little bit. Your reputation will pick up and you'll get more freelance business. Getting ahead you may end up making enough money and start up your own shop.
