Watch the video…It’s silly, I promise! 🙂
One of the questions I get asked most often (aside from, “how is it possible you actually eat that much?”) is, “what kind of side hustles do you do, and how much do you earn from them each year?”
OK I lied, no one really asks me either.
And while I don’t plan on telling you how it’s very possible that I can eat a lot of food & have an enormous appetite, I will tell you about how I made just over $13,000 in side hustle income this year.
Since it’s only November and I’m not sure what I’ll be making the next two months in side hustle income (otherwise known as SHI…ha ha, I should come up with one more word starting with a T), I’m including SHI from November & December of last year in my total.

Something that I didn’t mention in my video, is that I also did some bartering in exchange for classes. I do blog and video work in exchange for a membership at Bionic Body in Hermosa Beach, and I also worked a yoga shift at The Green Yogi for about five months in exchange for unlimited yoga. Just letting you know that that’s also an option instead of getting paid money.
I hope this article and video were helpful in inspiring you to get out and try your own side hustles this year.
I’d like to make a part two of this video, which explains the ins and outs and do’s and don’ts of doing a side hustle, as well as any other tips I’ve learned along the way.
