    Thank you, Ms.Marie. I actually surpassed my goal and made $24 this week on Mturk! I only have time to work on there when the baby is napping and I'm not doing dishes, laundry, or cooking! I've also been saving a lot of money at the grocery store with coupons, so that's something, too!
    Congrats on doing so well on your challenge! How are you making your extra cash?

    I make the extra money by teaching study groups to prepare adult students for a few different certifications and then providing educational webinars and seminars for recertification points after they are certified. I really enjoy it because I can decide how much or how little time I am willing to put into it. I do it from home by webinar. I come home from my full time day job, eat dinner with my husband, and then go upstairs to my home office to lead the study groups or webinars, which are generally 1-2 hours long. So there is no commute, no dress code, I see hubby every night, etc. I do one Saturday morning webinar every other month, but otherwise keep most of my weekends free. It's grown sufficiently that I make as much with this part time business as my full time day job. I have several ideas for expanding my revenue streams to increase my income (but just have limited amounts of hours to implement the ideas). If I lost my day job, I would just segueway into focusing on this part time business full time. I suspect I could probably double my income relatively easily.

    FEBRUARY GRAND TOTAL: $5,259.25

    In March so far, I have made $1,471.84, which puts me over $11K for year to date income. I'm really pleased with my progress. Income this month is coming from three upcoming study groups, a March webinar and a March seminar. I'm also holding two free webinars (one this month, one next) to build up names on my email list.

    March is coming along nicely.

    Got a bunch more signups today following an email to my list.

    Income milestones are still running about two weeks ahead of last year.

    Blew past my goal for the month. Income milestones are still running about two weeks ahead of last year. Let's hope that keeps up.

    March has been a terrific month.

    As Maxwell Smart would say, missed $7K by "that much". That is quite all right though. It was a heck of a month. 2017 has been a fantastic year so far.

    March Grand Total: $6,952.71

    2017 Grand Total Year to Date: 16,521.84

    April should be a good month. Income will come from: a speaking engagement (will be paid in May though), payment of my class teaching, my April webinar, April seminar, two study groups (one of which is my big one) that start in May, and maybe another study group if I open registration on it. I'm going to set my goal higher than usual at $5,000 for the month, but I think that is realistic.

    April is coming along steadily. I expect the last few weeks to bring in a higher amount of money.

    April has been coming along nicely. I am less than $200 from making $20K in 2017 with my side business. It has really been a blessing.

    I've got two checks coming for a total of close to $3K, but I won't count it until they are in hand.

    Sent out my email this morning. Got a few more signups. That brings me past $4K for the month (barely).

    SWEEEET!!!

    1) Received a check for a class I taught.

    2) Exam results came out yesterday for my big study group. Had a flurry of postings on social media and my professional association forum with people sharing that they had passed and promoting that my study group was a huge help. End result? Got a bunch of signups over the last two days.

    That blows away my monthly goal for April and brought me past $24K year to date income. So I made close to $4K in two days!!!

    What a fantastic month. I'm super happy with April's income.

    April Grand Total: $8,943.66

    May's income will come from stragglers to my Word group that starts tomorrow, my May webinar, my June seminar I will open registration on, the PowerPoint study group I will open registration on shortly, and my BIG study group that starts May 24. Plus I should receive the check for the speaking engagement last month. The month my big study group starts is usually a very good month for income, so I'm setting my base goal high at $5,000 this month.

    Little over a week in to May and I've earned over $3300. Have I mentioned lately that I really like my little part time side business?

    It gets harder and harder to go to my day job. I keep thinking - I am making more part time than I am with my full time job. Why don't I just quit and jump into the side business full time??? But the income can be feast or famine at times. It's nice having the regular weekly paycheck of the day job. Still... once that debt gets all paid off, and especially once a little cushion gets built up in savings, I'll be thinking about making the jump more seriously. So many positives I can think of, so few negatives...
