It’s been awhile since I’ve done an income report, but I always enjoy reading these types of posts because it takes the mystery out of things. I’m an open person, I don’t hide much and I enjoy sharing where and how I make money here, as well as what else I’m doing to bring in some extra side cash into the mix (I mean, I gotta make some extra cash to afford the overalls, you know?!) I believe in in diversifying my income and having money come in from all different places. It all adds up in the end and I am always grateful for the opportunity to earn it.
Here is what I made in March:
This money came from affiliate links via Rewardstyle (meaning if you click on a link either either here or on Instagram and buy something, I make a commission on that sale), and through sponsored posts. I belong to several media groups that send opportunities my way that I can apply to, and I get to write posts about it and get paid.
Monat: $395 (so far, it’s still coming in;)
This is my shampoo business that I wrote a post about late last year, but I really decided to take the leap and expand my team last month and I am so happy I took the chance! I love building my team and sharing an amazing product with people. I wake up every day excited to build my shampoo empire (!), and last month was the beginning of me reaching some goals that I can’t wait to expand on.
(If you are looking to join with me and have your own turn-key business in the hair care business, contact me (becauseofjackie(at)yahoo.com.) I will personally mentor you and help you reach your goals!)
I substitute teach part time at my kids’ school and I love it. Last month was tough as we had spring break, and my entire house was sick over a period of two weeks, so I didn’t end up working a lot. I tend to work 2-3 days a week depending on whether there are jobs available or not, or if I have other things going on. I really love being a small part of the teaching community again (I taught Kindergarten and Second grade before I had my kids!)
So that’s it! I consider all these different places where I make money as a different part time jobs. I put a couple of hours each day into both blogging (writing/photos/commenting/emails/social media obligations/etc), and Monat (calling/texting/mailing packages/etc). I work 8:45am -4 pm on the days I sub. I do consider myself a stay at home mom still, even though they are both in school full time as of last Fall, they come first for me always. I fit all my other things in around them! (And my husband, quality couple time with him is a must;)
All in all, I’m lucky to make money doing things I love, and being able to post and write here is a big part of that! Thanks for reading, as always!
