August Income Report

Every month I will be documenting my income from all of my side hustles. As I am just starting out some (more like all) of these amounts will be very little or even nothing. In full future me style though I’m going to include things that I may not even be doing yet because I know that in the future these things will be bringing in an income.

Rideshare Income $0.00

It’s been a while since I’ve done this particular side hustle. That will change in the future but, for now still nothing.

 Blog Income $0.00

Again nothing new here, though I saw a rise in blog traffic resulting in some ad revenue I only get paid out when it hits $100.

At the current rate, that could be years.

Freelance Income $640.56

My favorite income, getting paid to have fun, or so it seems. I love writing and having people read and comment on my things.

I also love working on social media posts. I’ve become a little addicted to Pinterest lately.

Most of this income comes from one client that seems happy with my work. I would happily gain a few more clients as I would love for this one income to completely care for my household bills and the other incomes to be extra to put towards debt.

Amazon FBA Income $2034.14 Cost $1,492.50

Great month for Amazon.

The cost is mostly items that won’t be sold until September. So, Even though it seems high it’s not as bad as it seems.

I’ve had a few issues with Amazon in the last few weeks. I think I’ll make an entire blog post once it’s resolved.

Bottom line is somehow almost $800 worth of merchandise has disappeared. Meaning more than half of what I spent in August on merchandise is now nowhere to be found, so it can’t be sold, and I’m just out the money.

Misc. Income $76.57

Ebates gave me a nice check this month as well as my typical prescription card.

This income has gone down in the last few months due to the fact that I’m no longer actively working on it. That’s actually a good thing as this is now completely passive income.

Wrap Up

My ultimate goal is to get all of the side income to match or surpass mine and my wife’s current 9 to 5 income.

Monthly Income Needed:$3,000
Side Income Total:$2751.27
Difference:-$247.73
YOY Increase: $836.82 or 43.7%

Close, very close, but not there yet. I would like to have an average of $3,000 by the end of the year but I would have to have some amazing months in order to bring my average up.

It wasn’t a goal I started with at the start of the year so I won’t be that upset if I don’t reach it.

Next Month

Next month is almost over, as I write this it’s the 22nd of September.

Not sure if you heard but we had a small storm named Irma hit my area and I was without power or electric for a week.

I was able to go on a trip to Maine (home) which I’ve been planning for a while now.

When I got here I’ve been so busy with family and friends that I haven’t seen in years, it’s been hard to tear myself away to get work done. My client work is getting done but my personal business has kind of gone uncared for.
