Make an extra $500 a month

You know I’m all about finding ways to earn more money…and less about doubling your double coupons. (cue: So Money soundtrack)

For those of us who need to pay down student loan debt or save up for a house or grad school, “borrowing” your neighbor’s WiFi isn’t exactly the solution. (Not that I’ve done that.)

Nor is buying generic canned tuna. (But, I have done this.)

Enter: The side hustle. I did this in my twenties while working a full-time job as a news producer.

Babysitting, petsitting, freelance writing. Been there, done that.

In my column for this month’s O, The Oprah Magazine I interview 4 working women who are all bringing in an extra $500 or more a month.


With so many money-making websites and apps these days, it’s never been easier (or faster) to generate an extra revenue stream or two.

These amazing women use existing resources (e.g. their cars, laptops, etc.) to bring in the extra dough.

And they do it when they feel like it.


I hope you’ll check out their profiles for more inspiration.

Here’s to boosting your bottom line!

So, I thought it would be appropriate to bring on a guest today who is an expert on, particularly, pelvic relief. The topic is a little sensitive, a little private. Sometimes we don’t talk about this issue very openly.
