A few ideas for side hustles that can help you make extra-income.
Whether its making income from a side hustle, a sideline job or making money online. I want to share with you some practical ideas and tips to make extra-income. This page will be a work in progress that I will add to as I try new avenues and ideas:
I know that as a hard-working Mama of 6, making extra-income to substitute my husband’s income has made life easier along the way. My husband works hard at his day job, and I am more than grateful that he has allowed me to be at home and raise our 6 kids. The conviction we had to do this has meant sacrifice along the way, but I wouldn’t change it at all!
Time to Diversify
One thing I am discovering along the way is the need to diversify. Nearly all of my monthly income was being earned through the sale of my art and designs and then the company I was earning the most income from relied on started to become unreliable both in its communication and payments. As I write this post I am still earning a big chunk of my monthly income from this one company and I am still hoping that they can turn things around.
I have learned a timely lesson about putting all my eggs in one basket so to speak, it was so stressful waiting for over 6 weeks to get paid and have very little control over the outcome. It was time to start building more income streams!
