What’s going on everyone? You may be asking what the Side Hustle Income Challenge is. Crystal from Sophisticated Spender introduced me to this concept. It’s a challenge where you use different side hustles to create extra income. It sounded like a great challenge so I figured that I’d join in. The amount that we want everyone to raise is an extra $1000. We are co-hosting the challenge from Oct 3rd – November 4th. That gives everyone 5 weeks to get your hustle on. The extra money can be used to pay off debt, start an emergency fund or even use it to pay for early Christmas gifts. Crystal and I will both be participating in the challenge. Before I continue, here are some words about Crystal.
She blogs over at SophisticatedSpender.com and she side hustles her ass off! She currently has a few side hustles but felt it was time to take it to the next level.
How she plans on winning:
Motivation-She picked 3 hustle songs and will start her day listening to them and will throw one on when she’s feeling unmotivated.
Freelancing– She plans on stepping up her freelance game and get at least 3 high-quality articles out the door this month.
Webinar #1– She loves to sew and realizes that it’s time to take her to the internet. She plans on hosting 1 paid online sewing webinar.
Webinar #2– She started 2 blogs now and she wants to show others how to do it too. She plans on hosting a free “start your own website” webinar.
Notice the key word was “PLAN.” You will NOT beat me (or Jason) if you don’t have a PLAN!
She is focused and ready to go y’all. Below are the rules:
You can pick any side hustle that you like.
You can have multiple hustles.
Only side hustle income will be counted.
Updates will be featured on our sites every Friday.
Week 1 – Sophisticated Spender
Week 2 – The Butler Journal
Week 3 – Sophisticated Spender
Week 4 – The Butler Journal
Week 5 – Both sites
We will be using the hashtag #1KHustle
I will be doing several side hustles such as selling on eBay and freelancing. (I have a client that I’ve been writing for nearly 11 months. To push myself harder I will not include that income in this challenge).
To make things even more fun, we will be giving a $50 amazon gift card to the person who has made the highest amount after the 5 weeks are up. Don’t lie.
If you are interested in participating, please leave a comment with the side hustles that you plan on doing. Feel free to reach out to one of us for side hustle ideas. We’ve pretty much done it all and would love to share our experiences with you!
So we ask…how do you PLAN on #winning?
Let’s make this money y’all.
