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
Someday in this coming month I may get out and drive. This is a income that I’ve talked about how great it is that you don’t have to go out and drive. Well I guess I’m proving that.
I should be trying to get at least a ride a week when I’m on my way home but I often am exhausted from work and have to work on side hustles when I get home.
Blog Income $0.00
Though I have been working on trying to get some income from the blog, and even did some advertising I haven’t seen any results yet.
I’m not that upset about it as my main source of online income will be freelancing for a while I think.
Freelance Income $193.90
My favorite type of income. Though less then Amazon FBA I enjoy this. I love being able to tell my family that I wrote an article. One of my siblings recently started talking to me about this great article they found and how helpful it was, when they told me the name I had actually written the article so it made me feel really good.
On top of that I get paid to write these articles. It’s an amazing feeling.
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 $355.11 Cost $344.11
After my record breaking December, this is kind of a let down but there are a few factors that go into this.
First, I had run out of money in December to buy new products until the last payment came in, I then bought as quickly as I could and sent in more merchandise but it didn’t arrive till later in January.
Then there was some problems with shipments as they didn’t arrive as quickly as usual. Or, they did arrive and set at the warehouse for a week before finally posting to sell.
Once things did sell it wasn’t selling very fast, and I couldn’t figure out why. Near the end of the month sales massively picked up but that won’t be seen until February, in fact Februarys first payment as it stands now will be larger than my entire income for January.

Misc. Income $70.50
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: $619.51
YOY Increase: $117.30 or 23.3%
Going from exceeding my goal to not even coming close is a huge hit. Not only that but it’s not even that much more money then last year at this time. That being said a lot happened in January that will set me up for the rest of the year and I’m really looking forward to sharing that in the months to come.
February will be a busy month. It’s hard to believe that I’m saying this but I can’t really take on any more freelance clients until mid March as I’m working on a huge project for one of my clients.
I also have some new things coming as it pertains to this blog, as well as my email list, which you can sign up for here.
