Welcome to my favorite series, The Monthly Income Report. In these reports my goal is to share with you, the reader, ways I’m earning money outside of my normal job. The task of earning side money on and offline can be quite elusive. I’m here to cut the crap and show you just what is working and what isn’t working. Not to mention my progress on my current and future goals. That way if you’re looking to add an income stream you’ll know where to start.  Enjoy. If you have any suggestions, questions, or my opinion on your own hustle make sure to drop a comment below!

What Have I Learned

  • So apparently meat is not great for our bodies according to What The Health. So I made the decision to change my diet up and stop eating meat for the month. Gonna see what kind of impact it has on my health.
  • A new business requires an online presence so I’m going to work on one for the shop this month hopefully to be launched soon.
  • I think I have too much on my plate so I’m going to step the goals down by a couple until I manage to work out a cadence between the blog, the shop, other ventures and work.

See you on next month’s Income Report!
