Welcome to my May 2018 edition of the side hustle report.
To fuel my Vrijheid Fonds, I donate a part of my paycheck every month. However to reach financial independence earlier I do some side hustles to make some extra income. And every month I write an income report of all my side hustles. I do this to track my income and to motivate myself (and hopefully also others) to make more money to invest.
For these reports it is important to understand that not all side hustles pay out 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 May 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.
Last month was a good month. I have accumulated € 11.50 of extra income with the ads from Google Adsense. It was just a few cents shy of a new record for www.polliesdividend.com.
As I already mentioned in the side hustle report of April 2018, I reached the pay out threshold of my Google AdSense account. And in the beginning of this month Google has paid me € 70.70 whoohoo!!! Man it felt good to see the first money roll into my account that I have earned with Polliesdividend.com. I invested this money straight away, and I bought some extra mutual funds for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well”part of my Vrijheid Fonds.
I’m on the right track and I hope I can keep up these numbers and start generating more money every month. I will try to post new content every two to three days on my website and with the help of you as a visitor, I hopefully will reach the next pay out threshold before this year ends. So come back, read my post, enjoy my ads and send me some love 🙂 .
The accumulated revenues in my Google AdSense account at the end of May are € 11.50
Bol.com & Amazon.com
In May I had no revenues from Bol.com And Amazon.com. This means that my Amazon account is still standing at $0.08. And my Bol.com is stands on € 4.26.
Euroclix is 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. For my Dutch readers I wrote a post about Euroclix. If you haven’t read it already, take a look at: A post for my Dutch Readers: Waarom gebruik ik Euroclix als “bijbaantje”?
Yeah, I know that Euroclix won’t to earn me a full income. I just see it as some nice extra cash I can earn with a little bit of effort. I estimate that I can earn around 70 euros a year.
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 clix 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|
I have also reached this pay out threshold, as I already mentioned last month. Euroclix has paid out the total amount of € 70 (5,000 clix). I’m very excited. And I also invested this money straight away, and I bought some extra mutual funds for my “Safe-haven-sleep-well”part of my Vrijheid Fonds.
If you also want to earn some extra cash, just try Euroclix and sign in.
Regular visitors of Polliesdividend know that 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 one member’s board meeting in May. Because it was scheduled on the very last day of May, I didn’t get paid in May.
If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary
May was a memorable month for me; I got my first check from Google AdSense!!
And not only Google AdSense has paid me, also Euroclix has paid out to me. I got a total of € 140 paid out to me last month. And all this has gone straight, as fuel, into my Vrijheid Fonds.
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.
