Another month bites the dust in 2017!!!  That means another wrap-up report of what we earned, how we earned it, and where our net worth stands now.  I like to use monthly income and net worth updates for motivation. It pushes me to try harder and I crave your feedback!  I would also like to inspire more people to create income streams out of something they truly enjoy. My Backstory for New Readers My husband and I currently bring in $70,000-$90,000 each year – 100% self-employed. I worked in a dead end cubicle for 6 years (2005-2011). My highest salary there was $35,500.  My original plan was to stay there for 30 years and retire.  Thankfully, that plan went to crap. The company was in a slump in late 2009, so they told me to “look busy”.  That led me to starting my own blog, Budgeting in the Fun Stuff, in February 2010 even though I had no blogging experience.  It grew faster than I expected (thank you!), and I have been fully self-employed since July 2011. My husband left public teaching to join me in 2012.  BFS itself has made more than $105,000 since its start in 2010. To go … Read more
