    Ron,

    I am currently on H1b visa with an approved i-140. I was thinking of starting (first as a hobby) a mobile-app as a side thing. I then realized I can't be making money out of it as long as I am on H1B. I was wondering if and when I get a EAD, am I legally allowed to have a side business (assuming my employer is fine with it)?
    Also, since I have 2 approved i-140s (one PERM based, another NIW), does your answer to the above depend on one or the other?

    Thanks much.

    When you have an EAD, you may work at as many jobs as you wish. No, my answer does not depend on your petition type.

    And to think I missed my EAD by 9 days (PD May 10, 2010) :)

    Thanks Ron.
    Just to confirm, does the side business or multiple jobs post-EAD (until I have a GC) have to be in the same field?

    No, you may do anything.
