How I Came About

For years I struggled with my finances.  In 2008 I was living paycheck to paycheck and was desperately looking for a way to earn some extra income.

In August of 2008 I did something that changed my life forever. I started my first side hustle, a personal finance blog that taught people how to improve and manage their finances.

For the first year I did nothing but write about my finances and what I was learning.  Over time my site grew and I started placing some advertisments on it through the Google Adsense program.

By the end of 2009 I was consistently earning a $100 and by the end of 2010 I was earning over a $1000 a month consistently.  From then on I’ve earned anywhere from $500 to $1000 a month on a regular basis.

Fast forward 4 years later and my finances were thriving all because I decided I didn’t want to live according to the normal financial system and start earning extra income.

Since starting my first side hustle I’ve earned nearly $40,000.

I know this doesn’t sound like a lot of money but let me ask you this question…

“What Would You Do With An Extra $500 to $1000 A Month?”

My guess is that it would do a lot to help you financially.  Since starting my side hustle I’ve been able to…

  • Actually take vacations with my family.
  • Stop the financial dread and have financial peace.
  • Attend industry conferences to grow my business.
  • And even built a brand new house.  (Yes that’s my house below)
