November 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 $179.68

It’s hard to believe that was once my largest income stream. Go back to January of this year and you’ll see I was doing more than double this amount.

I really like driving, it’s pretty easy money, I get caught up on my podcasts well waiting for passengers, and I don’t have to sell myself the apps do it for me.

That being said I have a lot of things going on, and it’s sometimes very hard to dedicate the amount of time that is needed for this hustle.

 Blog Income $50.00

This isn’t technically “blog income” a offline friend asked me about my website and I gave them my affiliate link to set up theirs. It’s still a good income stream and this blog will hopefully continue to bring in money for me for the future.

Freelance Income $0.00

Things don’t seem to be working out with one of the two clients from last month, might still but not sure what’s going to happen.

The other client was a rocky start but things are working really well now and will reflect in next months income. It’s a regular weekly post at More Than Finances and if you haven’t seen it yet definitely check it out.

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

Amazon FBA Income $1218.53 Cost $1607.55

At the end of October I had spend pretty much all of my profits from the Amazon business to go to FinCon, a decision I do not regret. But, it left the Amazon business low on capital and thus I was really concerned with the growth I’ve been seeing.

Not only that but I was probably not as good with the profits as I could have been and spent more than I should have on other things.

That being said this is still a viable business model that I will see succeed in the coming months, though I’m kind of starting at zero again.

Misc. Income $131.36

Not yet discussed on the blog entirely, this is some random low income stream that will have it’s own blog post in the near future.

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 incomes.

Monthly Income Needed: $3,000
Side Income Total: $1579.57
Difference: $1420.43

This is 52.65% to my goal, not taking into consideration the cost of Amazon this month. This isn’t a hard and fast amount and leaving my 9 to 5 will require debt being paid off as well has having a nice emergency fund.

I don’t think I’m that far away, and with Decembers numbers I should really be getting closer.

Next Month

I feel like I have been neglecting the site for the last few weeks, partially because of client work and partially because I’m not sure which direction to take the site. I had a coaching call with Bobby, who gave some amazing advice and I now have a clear picture of what I want to do with the blog.

Look forward to a breakdown of each of my income streams, especially Amazon. As well as some guest posts.

I’m really excited about the future of the site, and would love for you to let me know what you would like to learn. Leave it in the comments or email me.

How was your month? Did you make as much as you had anticipated? What are you going to do differently this month to make sure you become the “future me”? Commit to it now by telling us in the comments bellow.

  1. You’re on your way for sure. It takes time to build up, but once I got the ball rolling with my freelancing, I almost couldn’t stop it. Most of my business has been built through referrals, which is a great way to get new clients!

    1. I’m so happy to be working now, I spent over a year telling my friends and family I was going to make money with this and never did. Starting to make money with my online work is amazing. I can see it rolling now, more people are reaching out to me, and when I reach out to others they are more likely to respond. Thanks for the support Kayla
