Life is expensive.
EVERYONE NEEDS A SIDE HUSTLE
Did you know that in the year 2038, the average cost to send a kid to a private college will balloon to around $500,000?
When my wife and I heard this stat about 7 years ago with my financial planner, we were still paying off school loans, paying for my type 1 diabetes medical bills, saving up for a house – and having another baby (we had 1 daughter at the time).
And, it got me thinking…
How am I going to afford a nice life for my daughter? How on earth am I going to be able to send her to college?
Even if I invested responsibly with our financial advisor, I knew that I was going to fall WELL short of these lofty financial responsibilities…even with a full-time job.
(Then I imagined sending TWO kids to college…yikes.)
That’s when it dawned on me…
I NEEDED MULTIPLE STREAMS OF REVENUE.
Plan and simple.
And I needed them NOW. I loved (and still love) my job, but I needed the extra cash to build the foundation for my family's and my future.
When I heard this stat about 7 years ago with my financial planner, I was still paying off school loans, paying for my type 1 diabetes medical bills, and saving up for a house. Additionally, my wife and I were considering kids.
And, it got me thinking…
Having multiple revenue streams was no longer a “want”, but a “need“.
With that in mind, over the next 7 years I set out and created 3 successful side hustles.
And they all had 3 very important criteria in common…
1. THEY HAD THE POTENTIAL TO BE PROFITABLE
I’m into making money. Period. But, a side hustle needs to make meaningful money. Only something that had the potential to make more than $3,000/month was worth pursuing.
2. THEY DIDN'T REQUIRE A LARGE INVESTMENT TO START
When I started these side hustles, I wasn’t yet a millionaire. You needn’t be either!
3. THEY REQUIRED MINIMAL TIME TO MANAGE
Your 2 greatest assets in life are money AND time. And, I didn’t have much of it. I was working (and still do) a full time job.
The passive quality of the businesses is SUPER important to me. If you start a side hustle and it turns into your full-time gig, hats off to you!
But, that’s not the goal here.
The goal here is to teach you about 3 very realistic, profitable, and passive side hustles that have earned me more than $10,000 per month for the past 7 years.
In my experience, the easiest routes to potentially earning $10,000 per month are:
Thank you so much for visiting. Without YOU, this blog would not be possible.
