In my last post I wrote about how I would love to go back to school for my doctorate degree. This is a goal of mine but at this point there is another plan. Setting up a graduate assistant position and enrolling into a doctorate program in one week would only have been doable if it was meant to be. But the GA position was already filled, so therefore I knew my answer.
Instead I’ll be following my original plan. I’ll be starting my school position tomorrow and I have an interview at an organization that offers tutoring services. I applied for two part-time positions with a local boys and girls club, but after further research online, I found the original posting was dated August 9th. Most likely, they have already filled the positions. But it’s still worth a try, right?
On Craigslist, I found an advertisement for an afterschool 1-1 assistant in my area. I applied to this as well, but I have yet to hear from the parents. I also called a Marketing Research Firm that was offering $75 for participating in a focus group about voting. I’m now on the call-waiting list if someone they scheduled cancels and they’ll keep my name on file for additional surveys. And, I responded to an ad for help cleaning a restaurant in my area once a month.
As recommended by so many bloggers, I need to pursue all sorts of opportunities to make extra money (well legal anyways). I wish the money was going towards debt instead of life, but eventually the skills I’m gaining in finding side hustles will help me when I am in debt payoff mode. I also need to re-contact a company that is offering $5 for reviewing their website.
I have officially started my second blog as well! I’ve already written three posts! I can’t wait until I actually have my domain for this site and I can truly build it into a successful side business. For One Million Bones, I created a flyer and sent emails to more people in my network. I have many more emails to send and I need to start my follow-up phonecalls. Once I’m settled into my school position, I’ll be able to plan better when I am available to execute programs for this project. My goal is to set up a district-wide program at the small city near where I live and implement it district-wide at the school district where I’ll be working part-time.
I have faith that all of these opportunities and connections will lead me to where I am supposed to be. I am attracting the right opportunities and people into my life!
How many jobs do you have?
What unexpected side hustles have you done to make extra money?
