Income Reports Money Motivation Side Hustle

June 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.


In this YouTube income report, you will see a breakdown of Adsense earnings, affiliate marketing, digital products, course sales, and Patreon.


June was a crazy month, we have been quarantined for 4 months now. Just as soon as we thought we were coming out of the gate Florida’s cases spiked and we are back in lockdown. I have used this time to do a lot of education and digging deep into my business to find places where I can improve.

Here are the major changes in no particular order:

• Back to Personal Finance video topics

• 2 videos each week, posting on Mondays and Thursdays

• 1-3 blog posts a week

• Increased Pinterest from 20k monthly views to 150k monthly views

• Enrolled in course 1k1Day by Nicole Walters

• Created a FREE 7-Day Meal Plan

In May I did an investing series on YouTube where I shared videos on How To Overcome The Fear of Investing, Dividend Investing For Beginners, 3 Dividend Stocks I’m Buying Now. I received a lot of great feedback from those videos. A lot of my viewers said that they learned a lot about investing it my videos helped take the FEAR they had out of investing. That means so much to me and is my goal with teaching about money and investing.

I also received a lot of feedback that people missed my old videos where I gave them advice on How To Save Money on Groceries, How To Meal Plan, and Financial Goals. I’m happy to bring these types of videos back. They are a lot of fun for me!

My June Side Hustles from largest to smallest:

Here is how I made $1,623.62 this month.

Dividends: $15.42

As you can see, my dividends are low for the month of June, 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.

Patreon: $36.67

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.

Affiliate Marketing: $782.14

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!

Goals for July:

Start working on merch designs

Upload at least 8 new videos in July

Publish at least 10 new blog posts in July

Increase course sales to $500

Complete 1k1Day course

Read to Free To Focus by Michael Hyatt and Building a StoryBrand by Donald Miller.
