Hiya! I’ve been doing this for a while now on my main blog and the responses to these side income reports have always been so positive.
So I’m extra excited to move over and share my first ever side income report with my merry readers!
October was a pretty standard fall/winter month but I’m always excited to share.
Some of these are my own businesses and I’ve built them from complete scratch. So heck yes, I’m proud of what I make no matter the amount.
How I Started My Side Gigs
Since I think it’s required to give a little background, I want to clarify building a full-time side income as robust as mine did not happen overnight.
My side gigs, work-from-home jobs, side hustles, small business all started from nothing.
Don’t compare someone’s middle to your beginning.
Side jobs are fantastic because it gives you the option to grow, learn, and build.
Not all side hustles were meant to “hold up the sky.” It’s supplemental income.
There are going to be days and months where you will be SO happy you have that extra money to pad your bottom dollar. Disasters
People think it’s “easy” or “lazy” to work from home but there are many aspects where it’s harder than a traditional 9 to 5 job.
*There is no direction or “set path” when you first start which intensifies the confusion and stress. I
t’salso very exciting.
*You operate on nothing, totally grass root campaigning alone. You need to earn and build trust.
*It takes time to build and learn everything properly. There is a lot of hands-on learning and exploring required. You need to get creative.
*Self-motivation is a challenge for side gigs. We are a society PLAGUED with procrastination so in actuality, working from home takes a lot more discipline.
None of this should stop you from making your money, your way.
Why These Reports Are Important
My goal for these side income reports is to show you how possible it is for anyone to make a full-time income without a full-time job.
Even better, I make this money monthly without having to wake up early, get stuck in traffic, or report back to anyone. A few of these side hustles are pretty passive and really fun to do as well.
*I show you exactly what I’m making and who I’m pulling these figures from.
*Motivate and show off that a little extra dedication can lead to ever-growing rewards in life.
*Inspire those looking to make some extra income to join me in the hunt for profit, or at the very least, amusement!
