I completed 2 out of 4 goals from last week and I have set myself 7 goals for next week. All goals are related to establishing more side hustles and increase my income. Find out more in the Random Mid-Week Blog Post!
Goals for LAST week
These were my goals for last week:
- Work on another Gig
- I would really love to lose my target of 2lbs this week
- Add regular content into side hustle number 4
- Finish of price list for package 1 for side hustle number 2
Yes, I achieved this one! I created 5 Pinterest Templates in Canva and am offering them on Fiverr. For £3.98 ($5) you can get the links to the five templates which you can then fully customise yourself. All the text, images, fonts, colours etc are customisable. All you need is a free Canva account if you don’t already have one.
Second week of my weight loss challenge and I was pleased to be able to record my weight on Monday as 10 stone 5 lbs. I am really pleased with this and it puts me on track for my target date and weight. Remember you can join me or follow me over on Instagram using the #msjweightloss.
I managed to get some much needed research completed at the weekend which is needed for an upcoming blog post. It needs to be condensed and edited and I can then schedule this for August. I really want to make the most of being ahead and keep the momentum going.
Despite uploading a new gig, Fiverr has been really quiet. This surprised me as there had been a steady stream of orders coming in over the last few weeks. However, yesterday I happened to notice an email which stated that they were changing some of their categories and that some gigs may need changing. I logged on today and took a look. I didn’t change and categories in the end, but then literally 3 hours later, I got another order! Maybe the Fiverr algorithms favour those sellers that log in regularly. I will be testing this out now and try logging in consistently over the next week or two to see if I notice any different.
The New Website (Side Hustle No. 2)
A very small amount was done on this. I created a price list, which was one of my goals for the week. However, I have not yet uploaded it yet as I need to do a bit of tweaking to the whole layout of the package page.
The Other Website (Side Hustle No. 3)
Due to the exams, work had halted on this but eldest and I are now looking forward to working on this together. We will have some planning sessions to work out exactly what we want to do and where we want to take this.
Side Hustle No. 4
Side hustle number 4 is underway. It has only been going for just over a week and I am looking into ways to automate the different tasks that need doing on a daily basis. If I can achieve this I will be able to produce more and hopefully start making an income. There has been no income so far but I am hopeful.
The revision continues! Although we are now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and only the following subjects remain: Chemistry, History (paper 2), Physics, History (paper 3). Just four to go. Eldest has coped with it really well but he is starting to feel worn out, as well as begin stressing about the results! Results day seems like years away to him at the moment.
Goals for the week
I need to carry two goals over from last week. Again, I don't think I will finish the gig I have planned, but I would at least like to make some progress.
- The 3 gigs that I have on Fiverr need to be added to The New Website (as these will form part of my offerings).
- I want to download Photoshop Lite and test it out.
- I would like to lose more weight. I would love 2 lbs.
- Get another blog post written and scheduled for August.
- Finish formatting the package page and upload the price list I created.
- Hold the first planning session with eldest for our joint side hustle.
- Continue try to streamline side hustle no. 4.
Wow – that’s quite a lot there! I am hoping for a little more free time now the exams are all but over. Science and history are not my thing, so he is revising alone except when the husband, who LOVES history and knows everything about it, is around to help out.
