Imagine being able to take your side hustle to the next level and quit your full-time job?
That’s exactly what Kelan and Brittany Kline managed to do after working on their blog for over a year. They were able to leave the shackles of their day job and go full-time with their passion project: The Savvy Couple, a blog and community that helps families organize their lives, simplify their finances and unlock the freedom to do more of the things they love.
We chat about how they get into blogging as a side hustle, how they first started making money and their future plans for their business and family.
A lot of young parents are looking for a flexible work schedule so they can spend more time with their kids. Creating a business that provides your family with a good income and the flexibility to work where and when you want starts to become an ideal situation.
Now, this isn’t an overnight thing. You have to work hard, you have to hone your craft and dedicate years to grow it, but over time the hard work can pay off big.
Our guest today, Monica Louie, found out a way to create a business from home that allows her to spend more time with her two young children, husband and still make a multi-six-figure income.
Her story of family and entrepreneurial success has been featured on the Smart Passive Income podcast, Thrive Global and Forbes.
Our question of the month comes in from Wes from Virginia:
I’ve been married for 5 years and have a 2 ½-year-old daughter.
My wife and I have paid off $40,000 in debt but we still have $100,000 in student loans to go.
I want to find a side hustle to help us accelerate our debt pay off, but with my responsibilities at home, I’m looking for a work-at-home opportunity that pays $30 or more per hour to be worth my time to spend away from my family.
I’m willing to put in a little work upfront to learn some new skills and even open up a new business if needed.
I wanted to know your opinion on where I should focus my efforts. Thank you for your time and keep up the good work!
Over the 3 years on my podcast, I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with a collection of millionaire entrepreneurs, early retirees and personal finance experts. These conversations have allowed me to learn, grow and inspire others to win with their finances and create a better future for their family.
After each episode, I share a quote that motivates me and the listeners of the podcast to take action.
In 2017, I attended a conference called FinCon where I heard story after story of people who have made a full-time living through blogging. They began by choosing a topic that excited them, consistently wrote about it on their blog and eventually made an impressive income.
One presentation I attended featured a blogger who made over $6,000 per month!! It did take him a several years to get there, but with the right patience, determination and appreciation for your topic it CAN be done.
A recent Gallup poll suggests that 70% of American workers are not engaged in their jobs. They don’t like what they do, or changes within the organization have made it difficult to enjoy their days. But working is important, we need the income, we need the benefits. Most importantly, we need a purpose in life. How do we find a career we love?
I’ve invited Ken Coleman on the show today to help us figure that out. Ken is a career expert and national radio host of the Ken Coleman Show. Pulling from his own personal struggles, missed opportunities, and career successes, Ken helps people discover what they were born to do and provides practical steps to make their dream job a reality.
Do you want to reach $100,000? This could be in your salary, your small business revenue, and even your net worth.
