THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.

This is my August 2017 2017 Income Report.I should note that this is all the income I earned in August, I may not have actually received payment for it in August. This also does not factor in expenses and taxes.

Total August 2017 Income = $4,370.61​​​​

Freelance Writing = $1,875

Best Course

Personally, I found the course, 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success extremely helpful to get me started with freelance writing. It breaks down everything you need to do, step by step, so that by the time you get to pitching for jobs, you are prepared and successful. For me, the course paid for itself when I got my first freelance writing job. I now earn between $2,000 - $4,000 per month (check out my income reports) with freelance writing.

Affiliate Marketing = $74.40

Best Course

Michelle is an affiliate marketing maven. She regularly makes over $50k a month from affiliate marketing. I bought her course at the end of Nov. 2016 and mid-December 2016 while I'm still working to implement everything I've learned, I've already seen an increase in my affiliate marketing income. She really knows what she is talking about and the Facebook community that accompanies the course is a terrific resource. Learn more about Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.

Lyft Driving =$9.53

Side Hustle Alert

Driving with Lyft is a great way to earn some extra cash. I love how easy it is to just turn on an app when I feel like driving and make some money. I wrote an entire post about driving for Lyft. It includes what you can expect during the application process, what it's like to actually drive and the many perks of driving with Lyft.  Get started driving for Lyft.

Hustle tools & resources i recommend

GRAMMARLY (BE A BETTER WRITER) I use Grammarly as a second pair of eyes to help me clean up and proofread my writing/typing. The best part is that it is free to use. You can install an extension on your web browser and it will check any writing you do online. While there is a paid premium version, you can get by with the free version for a long time. I only recently upgraded. If you want to know more about Grammarly, you can read my review.

BookScouter (to make money selling your books) BookScouter allows you to enter your book's ISBN number and it compares the prices it would get from various sellers, making sure you fetch the most money possible for selling that book.

Contena (for Finding Freelance Writing Jobs) I used Contena when I was working my 9-5 and getting started freelance writing. It made it easy to find freelance writing jobs to pitch. While it's not a cheap Contena is definitely worth it if you don't have a ton of time to spend looking for freelance writing jobs to pitch. Contena pulls together pretty much all of the available freelance writing jobs out there into one place and will  notify you via email of ones in your niche. 

Quickbooks Self-Employed (for managing Hustle Money) I use the QuickBooks Self Employed (BTW you'll get 50% off with my link) app to calculate my quarterly taxes so I know how much to set aside. Though keep in mind it only keeps up with federal taxes and you will need to set aside an additional amount for your state taxes.
