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
With so much work on this site, freelance work, and Amazon FBA rideshare driving has been lax. Not only that but my car is getting old and not running as well as I would like before driving people around.
This is an important way to make money, I still feel it’s worth it but in the mean time I’m not sure how long till I drive again.
Blog Income $0.00
Whether sponsored posts, affiliate sales, or coaching I have got nothing. I would like this site to make some more money in order to pay for the hosting.
That being said I’ll take what I can do.
Freelance Income $363.52
Not the easiest income but my favorite. I truly do love writing and this side hustle allows me to get paid to do something I enjoy. Not only that but I feel (and feel free to correct me) that my writing is improving the more I do it.
On my own site if I miss a “deadline” I only get mad at myself and nothing really happens. However if I miss a clients deadline that’s more of a big deal so I take the time to make sure that the client work gets done. Sometimes even not doing my own work to do it.
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 $894.92 Cost $486.15
Next to freelancing this is my favorite income. It’s also the highest income right now making it my “bread and butter” income. If I can get this to a level where it pays my bills (something I think can be done) then the rest of the money will be extra.
February started out great with a huge deposit from end of January sales. Now I had a huge client project so didn’t go out shopping with the money I received till nearly the end of the month. Meaning that March sales should be better but I won’t actually see a huge income from it until end of March beginning of April putting me that much farther behind. So, moving forward I will make sure I take the time to get this done first since it’s currently making me the most money.

Misc. Income $120.00
Not yet discussed on the blog entirely, this is some random low income stream that will have it’s own blog post in the future.
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: $1,378.44
YOY Increase: $947.41 or 219%
Coming in just under half way to goal is not a bad month. Especially comparing it to last year at this time with a 219% increase (compared to only 23% last month)
Starting the month off I will be visiting family up north and won’t be doing to much work on this site. I do have some client work that will be done as well as a big project for my own site I started earlier in the week. So stay tuned for some big things coming in the near future.
