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
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
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.
