December 2017 Side Hustle – $31,696 in Sales

$10,413 in Profit on $31,696 in revenue December on Amazon is always crazy.  Everyone is doing their Christmas shopping and a typical month is usually about double a regular month.  This is exactly what I saw on my products and my sales were actually strong enough that I ran out of stock on several of my best selling products.  I probably could have hit close to $35k for the month if I hadn’t run out […]

November 2017 Side Hustle Update – $17,102 in Sales

4 Hours of Work – $17,100 in Sales – $4,000 in Profit Go to any personal finance blog and you’ll see the normal bashing of Black Friday, rampant consumerism, and the claims of moral superiority from abstaining from these insane shopping holidays.
