How do part time real estate agent make money when their not selling homes?

I'm freshly into real estate. I'm curious as to how other people make a living when the market is down and you have no homes listed with you being sold. Even full time agents also. What type of ways do you find income rather than selling a home. I would like any EXPERIENCED real estate person to answer.
