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 July! Did you have a good June? It’s been so hot lately that we have mostly been staying indoors. To decorate our walls, we’ve purchased some blank canvases from the art store and had our kids paint them!We celebrated our son’s 6th birthday this month. We rented out the local children’s museum so we could have a private event with close friends and our son’s school classmates. It was a ton of fun, and all guests wore masks during the event. Both of our kids are growing so fast. They are definitely one of our biggest motivators for pursuing financial freedom.
Here’s our monthly summary of side income that we have generated in the previous month of June.
