    Where can I find people who need something done, and then I can just hire a freelancer to do it and I charge the customer more than I pay for the freelancer. Do any of you do this?

    With the chance of getting ripped off from time to time doing that (and I hope you will) fiverr might suit you well, get someone doing it for 4 bucks and charge 5 on fiverr, lol (lots of love).

    It is called "Arbitrage". People do that all of the time with Fiverr gigs.
    The main problem is in getting people who are willing to take a cut
    in pay and yet are competent enough to do satisfactory work.

    Where can I look for people who actually post requests? Like "looking for a graphic designer" or whatever. So that way I can just go find a specific freelancers when I see a post.

    Do a Google search for "Hire A Freelancer" or "Freelancer Sites".
