Hello! I’ve decided to return to sharing Side Hustle Income reports as a means to motivate others on their Financial Freedom Journey!
I do Side Hustle Income reports to show exactly how much money is earned from side hustling. I continue to work a full time job and that income is not reported. Side Hustle Income reports, originally Online Income Reports, began in 2015. These reports stopped when Goal Digging to Happiness stopped producing income. However, I’ve decided to return to reporting my Side Hustle Income.
Side Hustle, or “side hustling” is a common term within the personal finance community. A side hustle is considered to be any task or tasks that earn additional money to be applied towards debt payments. Side hustles include blogging, a part time job, Youtuber, amazon seller, anything that brings in additional income!
In 2015, I earned about $4000 in side hustle income, with only starting in March 2015! I was able to pay off 3 credit cards and
August Side Hustle Income Breakdown
Side Hustle as a Therapist: 1050.00
Google Adsense: 102.37
Selling Items: 0
Natural Hair Care Specialist: 0
Total: 1152. 37
The categories listed above are ALL my side hustles. Earlier this year, I earned extra money doing hair in a shop however that stopped. My schedule become more and more hectic at my full time job and I was unable to be consistent with appointments. Shortly afterwards, I decided to do therapy on the side, which has been my most lucrative hustle yet. There is potential to work less hours and make more money at my part time job but the benefits of my full time job are needed at this time.
Debt Payment Progress
I’m currently on my LAST credit card with hope to have it paid by the end of October or before! $600.00 of my side hustle money was applied to my debt snowball payment this past pay period and over $1000 in all for the month of August! This brings my consumer debt number to $1966.58.
I started a Goal Digging to Happiness youtube channel! There I also provide some insight of my debt freedom journey as well provide a personal look into my life with 5 children.
With only one credit card left, I’ve been able to make other investments. My insights on work independence has changed drastically after a recent incident at work. Since then, I’ve been more interested in having the option of work flexibility, although it is not my goal at this time.
After October, the mister and I will be FINALLY joining finances. Joining finances will increase our debt snowball payments and speed up the debt free date!
