Welcome to my March 2018 edition of the side hustle report.
As you know, I write an income report of my side hustles every month. With these income reports I keep track of my extra income, which I can use to fuel further growth of my Vrijheid Fonds!
Not all side hustles pay immediately, therefore the numbers I present here are the accumulated revenues that hasn’t been paid out yet, but are in my various accounts. When I actually get paid, it is explicitly stated.
These side hustle income reports, in my opinion, provide a great look at how anyone can earn extra money outside of their day job.
With that said, let’s take a look how I did in March 2018.
As my frequent readers know, at this moment I have five side-hustles going on to help me generate cash for my Vrijheid Fonds. In this post I will report my accumulated revenues for all five side-hustles.
In February I have reported a new income record. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to top that record, but March still was a very good month. It is my second best month ever!
I still haven’t reached the payout threshold of € 70. But with if I keep up these numbers, I will reach this threshold very soon with out a doubt.
The accumulated revenues in my Google AdSense account are € 63.27
Bol.com & Amazon.com
In last month report (read my February 2018 – Side hustlereport here) I wrote a memo to myself to start writing a new book report. And I followed my directions (yes, I really listen good to myself 😉 ) and wrote one book report (The Intelligent Investor). However this report didn’t result in some extra revenues from Amazon. My account is still standing at $0.08
If we take a look at Bol.com, that is a complete different story. I can happily say, that my account has grown by €3.72 and my total now stands on € 4.26. The payout threshold is € 10, so I still have a long road ahead of me. But with the help of you my readers, I’m confident that I will reach this milestone in 2018. Thanks for the person who bought something on Bol.com through my website!
“Good things happen to those who hustle”
Euroclixis the longest running savings program in The Netherlands. With this program you can earn money by reading emails, participating in surveys, buying stuff on the Internet and using their Credit Card. Euroclix gives 150 clix (€1.95) bonus when you bring on a new member, but you also receive a 10% commission of the earnings of the new members. Naturally, the applied members do not notice this. The more members you bring on, the higher your earnings are. A very interesting construction if you ask me.
Okay let’s be real, I don’t expect to earn a full income with this. I see it as some nice extra cash I can earn with a little bit of effort. I estimate that I can earn around 50 euros in the first full year. By recruiting more members, I hope my income will grow.
If you’re Dutch and also want to earn a little bit of extra cash, sign up with Euroclix, it is free. You will receive a registration bonus of 2 euros immediately upon registration. Have fun and success with earning some extra cash!
Euroclix gives you points (clix) for every survey you fill in; furthermore you earn clixs by ordering stuff (books, electronics, hotel bookings, etc.) on the Internet and when you use their Credit Card.
In the table below I will show the number of clix I earned in a month.
|Clix from 2017||1.328|
When I reach the threshold of 5.000 clix, I will order Euroclix to pay out and at that moment I will receive € 70. So I’m almost there. I’m very excited. I know I will reach this threshold very soon, because I bought a home appliance (we were unlucky that one of our devices was broken) at one of the partners of Euroclix.
If you also want to earn some extra cash, just try Euroclix and sign in.
As you know I’m a member of the member’s board of a local financial company. This board organizes at least 4 meetings every year on financial issues. As a member I’m asked my opinion about financial issues and what I recommend as the best strategy for the company on these issues. When I attend a meeting I get expenses paid. There was a member’s board meeting in March, and I got the half-year amends.
Besides the money it earns it is also highly educational, because all kind of issues that are being discussed. So it is a win-win situation (and that is what I have learned form Stephen Covey to always try to reach/aim for 🙂 )
This € 270 has been paid out to me.
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.
If you want to read more about a win-win situation, I highly recommend the book “The 7 habits of Highly effective people” by Stephen Covey.
March was a record-breaking month, I have been paid a total of € 270! This money I will put to good use in April. I already have bought some extra mutual Funds for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well”part of my Vrijheid Fonds.
Google AdSense account has almost reached the payout threshold. And I if I can keep up these results, I will definitely reach the threshold and will be paid out in this quarter. It is a small start, but I love it.
I appreciate all of you who take the time to read my updates and follow along my slow and steady journey to financial freedom.
Do you have suggestions on how to improve my online income? Do you have any book suggestions about this topic?
