    Resume Question Regarding Side Business

    What's your opinion on listing 'side business'/experience on a resume?
    Should it be under same category of Current/Professional 'Experience'? Or Separate?..

    I think you should list it as current (because it is) and make a point of highlighting the initiative you have shown, your creativity, and your entrepreneurial spirit.

    All these things are needed by someone who works on their own, in their own time, trying to build an online business. Those of us who work in this way often fail to notice how much effort we put in and how much we've learnt.

    I agree, any work you do whether your main career or otherwise should be in your current activities as it gives potential employers an idea of your flexibility and range of skills (over the timeframe you have stated). You could perhaps highlight what you are doing full time to give emphasis over what you spend more time doing but the idea of "current" definately applies to any work you are actively engaged in at the time of writing the resume.
