Wow, I can’t believe June is almost over — all that traveling made it go by really fast, I guess. I have a ton of work to get done before the month is over so I think I’ll be spending this weekend hunkered down with the computer at the coffeeshop…. This is a new type of post for me and I may not do it every month — there’s not always enough interesting non-paycheck income to warrant a separate post. But this was a great month for side hustling and I figured I’d lay out all the different types that came in.
$100 — this was an honorarium for speaking at a conference. They also paid my travel and food expenses, but I deal with those off-budget so they don’t show up either as expenses or income.
$20 — someone used my Capital One 360 referral link to open a new account. Thanks, someone! 🙂
$250 — this was the bonus from opening a new checking account and depositing $5000 into it. It’s a smaller regional bank (six states in the midwest) and required a promotion code (I got a card in the mail with the offer) so I won’t link it.
$40 — made on usertesting.com.
$20 — earned in bank interest in May.
That’s a total of $415. I know that’s not much compared to all y’all freelancers, but without it I totally wouldn’t have been able to handle paying for half a car repair and replacing my computer’s hard drive without dipping into savings. I’m really glad I happened to have a good income month at exactly this time!
