Side hustles July 2020

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.

Once a month (usually on the 1st), I like to post a short summary of our personal and financial situation for the previous month.  While I don’t often post articles, I am committed to documenting all of my side hustle income.  Here I’ll share some of what’s been going on with our lives and our side hustles. 

Welcome to August! Did you have a good July?  We’ve had another limited shutdown of businesses in California as covid19 cases continue to rise.  My wife continues to work from home and I have been professionally fitted with an n95 mask to wear at all times at my office. 
We’ve been trying to make the most of things by having our kids do lots of outdoor and indoor activities.  Our friend gifted us an outdoor pool and the kids have enjoyed splashing around.  We purchased a bubble gun for outdoor play. 
We’ve also been going on regular walks around the neighborhood.  Our dog loves all the extra time she gets to spend outside.  
Having access to free books from the library has been awesome.  We’ve been reading new books to our kids every week!
Here’s our monthly summary of side income that we have generated in the previous month of July.
