Income Reports Side Hustle

July 2020 Side Hustle & Business Income Report

Each month I publish a YouTube and blog Income Report showing you how much money I made in my business as well as some lessons learned that contributed to that success and outcome.

My goal is to be transparent with you, show you the ups and downs as well as inspire you to hopefully build your own YouTube channel and/or blog.

Side hustle income is a large part of the financial success we’ve enjoyed over the last couple of years. We’ve paid off debt, cash flowed our wedding and new-to-me car and saved a down payment on our first home. Without a side hustle, all of those wins wouldn’t have been possible.

JULY YOUTUBE CHANNEL EARNINGS $3,169.65

July was a record-breaking month for my business. I changed my monthly revenue goal from $2,0000 to $5,000. I believe in the psychology of making stretch goals and it worked! I finally broke the $2,000 income range!

In July I hit $10,000 in revenue for 2020 so far. Check out this video here for the full breakdown.

My July Side Hustles from largest to smallest:

Here is how I made $3,169.65 this month.

Dividends: $6.88

As you can see, my dividends are low for the month of July, but honestly, I’m excited to see this!

Investing in Dividend Stocks through M1 Finance and Robinhood are an incredible way to make passive income in the long run. Most dividends are paid quarterly so receiving a few monthly dividends is an unexpected surprise. I am growing my portfolio by $500-$1,000 every month.

Coaching: $26.72

I do one-on-one coaching for budget coaching as well as YouTube coaching using the platform Clarity. I love that the clients can schedule a time and only charged per minute that we are talking.

Patreon: $36.60

Patreon is a monthly subscription to help support your favorite creators. On Patreon you will find exclusive videos, like Budget Report Cards, personal videos, behind the scenes, live streams as well as all of my budget templates and printables.

Sponsorship: $1,000.00

Brand sponsorships are a great way to increase your income as well as tell your audience about amazing brands and companies! I am extremely particular about what companies I work with and always fully vet those companies before accepting a sponsorship.

Affiliate Marketing: $1,401.14

If affiliate marketing is something you are looking to get into, I recommend taking the course Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing. Michelle digs into the best way to promote brands that you know, like, and trust and well as all of the legal elements of affiliate marketing. I’ll be honest, there was way more things that you need to be aware of and do to be FTC compliant than I expected. The course breaks it all down for you.

Second is to join an affiliate network, I have two main ones that I go through Aragon Premium and Flex Offers. These two networks offer thousands of brands combined that you can work with. Everything is in one convenient place, you can search for the brands, apply right there, get affiliate links, track clicks, and your payouts all in one place! Aragon Premium and Flex Offers are my go-to!
