July side hustles 2016

The great thing about doing side hustles to generate extra income is that you can hustle on your own terms.  The more hard work, time, and creative effort you put in, the more extra money you can make.  You can hustle as little or as much as you want, whenever you want.  It’s your extra money, and you can choose how you want to spend it.  Instead of focusing on what ideas don’t apply to you, try focusing on different side hustle ideas that you can implement to work for your situation.

Welcome to August.  I know I say this every month and I’ll say it again: July just flew past us.  It’s been a great month filled with activities for our son, get-togethers with our friends, and family meet-ups. 

Our son is growing so quickly.  He has so much curiosity and energy.  He is crawling around really fast.  He is starting to stand up more and cruise around on his two feet while holding onto the couch or baby gate.  He is always picking up things on the ground and putting them into his mouth.  He likes to flip through cabinets, throw things around, and explore all parts of our home.  It’s getting hard to keep up with him.  He’s been babbling a lot and we think he’ll be talking soon.  Time is limited but we try to spend as much time with him as possible.  He loves exploring the neighborhood as we go out for long walks with our dog.
Benjamin loved looking at the clouds in the sky on his flight.
We took our son on his second round trip flight to San Jose, CA for a wedding.  We were nervous how our son would act on the flight but he did great!  On the way to San Jose, he just slept the entire flight.  On the way home, he spent the time playing with us, looking out the window, and snacking.  Even the passengers behind us complimented us on how calm our son was during the short flight.  We have another wedding to attend in San Francisco in a few months and hope that he also does well on that flight.  The real challenge is going to be our Japan and Taiwan trip coming up in March 2017. 

Work has been extremely busy for both of us, as we both have a lot of new projects to deal with.  With how busy things get at work, I have no idea how some people are capable of working full time for 40-50 years.  I love my job, but I would love to reduce the amount of working hours per week.

Here’s our monthly summary of side income that we have generated in the previous month of July.  We’ve been so busy that we have not had a chance to do too much side hustling.  With all that’s been going on, I’ve been putting off writing articles for this site.  Family comes first.  I promise, new articles are on the way!
