October Side Hustle Challenge Goals

I’m excited to have discovered the #1kHustle challenge, hosted by the Butler Journal and Sophisticated Spender. The challenge is to earn $1,000 from side hustles from October 3rd through November 4th.

I’m a firm believer in planning and spreadsheets – so here are my hopes, dreams, and goals for these next 5 weeks:

Goal #1: Etsy

When I get busy at work, my Etsy shop suffers – so for this challenge, I’m going to prioritize my shop to increase my income.

  • Promote fall products on social media regularly.
  • Review previous sales and do a clearance event on low selling products.
  • Create 2 new products to add to inventory.

Goal #2: Survey Sites

I have a couple of favorites that I will share in the coming weeks, and I plan to explore some new ones as well.

  • Use survey sites while watching TV/relaxing.
  • Find new survey sites to add to the rotation.

Goal #3: Blog

Of course I am already blogging – but I have some big plans for content in October that I’m excited about, and I’m ready to take some steps toward making my blog more “official.”

  • Move to self-hosting.
  • Explore using affiliate links and advertising.
  • Focus more time on promotion and creating new content.
  • Publish #1kHustle updates weekly with progress.

Goal #4: Poshmark

Poshmark is an app I have been using over the past few weeks to clear out items in my wardrobe that I don’t wear – so far I’ve made over $300.  If you’re interested in signing up, use code NJMYJ to get $5.

  • Use price modification and sharing listings to clear out current inventory.
  • Do a closet cleanout to identify new things I can part with.
  • Try flipping items from thrift stores.

I’m looking forward to this challenge and to updating you all!  Is anyone else doing the #1kHustle?
