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.)

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.

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!
