January 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

I recently have been asked a lot of questions about rideshare driving and how to get started.

I also have been doing a lot of research and podcast interviews and am itching to go out driving again.

Hopefully, next month will have some income from this if for nothing else an experiment I have planned.

 Blog Income $100.00

Best blog income month ever. It was entirely from a sponsored post that went out early in the month. As I’ve mentioned before I don’t love sponsored posts as a way to make money, but at the same time this site doesn’t run for free and I have to pay the bills.

Freelance Income $6,200

I would say the majority of my work week is dedicated to freelance income at this point.

It’s a major client I have, as well as a major income source.

Because of this particular income stream, I get to travel and spend time with family and friends more than any other time in my life.

If you have any suggestions or maybe a freelance opportunity that you have please let me know by contacting me at tjphilbrook@IamTheFutureMe.com.

Amazon FBA Income $6034.66 Cost $539.92

An absolute amazing month!

To be fair, a major portion of this income is because of a mistake that happened with Amazon last month which has now been fixed.

January was a decent month for Amazon Sales but not this good.

As I’ve said in the past, Amazon income is strange because you don’t actually make money the month you spend money. This is the perfect example of that.

Misc. Income $42.00

One day this month I went to my mailbox, opened it and there was a check for $42.00 that is all I did to get this money this month.

Wrap Up

Monthly Income Needed:$3,000
Side Income Total:$12,376.66
Difference: +$9,376.66
YOY Increase: $11,757.15 or 1897.81%

Hands down the best month I’ve ever had. This one month almost meets the entire year side hustle for 2016!

I cannot begin to explain how this makes me feel. A few years ago I had a thought, an idea that I could possibly be debt free, I could work for myself from anywhere, and that I would finally, FINALLY, be in good health.

I’m not yet debt free, and I’m still working on getting out of debt, but working for myself with the freedom to be anywhere I want to be is amazing.

Not only that, it’s INCREASED my income. Living the life of my dreams has increased how much money I make, which means I can pay down the debt that much faster.

It’s such an amazing feeling, and those of you not living it, I understand how frustrating it is to see others that are.

Because I was there not that long ago, in a lot of ways I’m still there.

Next Month

February is going to be a busy month for me.

I have a conference at the start of the month on Podcasting. I’m visiting Family in Ohio as I write this and will be up until the conference which is in Orlando.

Then at the end of the month is my 6th year Anniversary with my best friend, partner, and wife of who I could do none of this.

So we’ll be at the very least going out to a nice dinner to celebrate.
