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 have done yet because I know that in the future these things will be bringing in an income.
Links in this article may contain affiliate links where I will receive a commission from at no additional cost to you.
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 $145.35
Though a small amount this is a fantastic amount for the blog. Typically we do no income from the blog at all.
This site is monetized in 3 ways. First, we have affiliate links in most articles and especially on the resource page. These are links that if you click on and purchase through I will get a small commission at no additional cost to you.
Second, we take sponsored posts on the site. I’m very particular about which links I’ll agree to work with and I maintain veto power up until after it’s been published.
Third, is through the ads on the site. They don’t make the site look pretty, but I hope they aren’t in the way too much. They help keep this site going so I can continue to bring benefit to you.
Freelance Income $4964.20
Most certainly my bread and butter at this point.
Again, all from one client at the moment, but it’s a large account that I work on a lot. I am looking at possibly taking on more work in the next few months but I’ll decide that at a later time.
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 $1199.62 Cost $1809.56
Oh Amazon how I love thee.
Seriously, even though the income LOOKS bad I love selling on Amazon. Right now I’m throwing money at it but I KNOW I’ll get that money back. It’s kind of interesting how this income stream works but I really do love it.
Want to learn to sell on Amazon the same way I have? Check out The Selling Family. Cliff and Jessica are awesome.
Passive Income $31.50
This used to be called “Misc. Income” and it was changed on air live, to hear why you’ll have to listen to the podcast episode 12.
Monthly Income Needed:$3,000
Side Income Total:$6,340.67
YOY Increase: $4389.31 or 224.9%
After Expenses: $3,184.11
I made it again, not really enough to make huge payments on my debt. But, it will do and next month will be even better.
With the amount of money put into Amazon right at the end of the month, the additional client work I did that will be paid next month, and the income on this site increasing I’m confident that I can double or triple this income in the coming months.
I’m starting the month off with a trip home. We had a death in the family and I get to endure the freezing cold of Northern Maine. But being around the family again will be nice.
After that it’s work full force, we have some great podcast interviews coming up, articles I’m dying to click “post on” and a lot of other things.
