side hustle summary

Another month is in the bag & here we are again with another Side Hustle Summary!

This is where I detail all the extra income made in the month, aside from investing & working the 9-5.

I’m grateful for October – it brought the highest amount of side hustle income since April!

Let’s see how…

Side Hustle Summary

October

Amount

Side job

560.67

Job Spotter app

£8.41

Cashback (Halifax reward account & Property Partner)

£32.00

Google rewards app**

£0.99

Amazon credit

£1.00

Total

£603.07

So I got my very first referral on Property Partner (click here to be my second!) and it was a whopping £30. Receiving this felt great as there was no risk and no effort. I see why hardcore referral marketers go so hard at what they do!

The other £2 was from the Halifax reward. As long as I stay in credit, pay in £750 & have 2 active direct debits they will credit my account £2. it used to be £5 per month then £3 per month. By next year it will likely be £0.50.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time, happy hustling!

Patient Portfolio Update – September 2018

It’s a long road to big money.

Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success. -Napoleon Hill

Milestones are exciting to aim for but more exciting to pass.

This month I passed £100 of passive income for the very first time!

The Patient Portfolio Update details how I build wealth, without trying to rush things along.

As ever, let’s begin by taking a look at that hair-raising passive income! Continue reading “Patient Portfolio Update – September 2018”

Patient Portfolio Update – August 18

Generally, August comes after July. So here we are, the Patient Portfolio Update for August.

The Patient Portfolio Update details how I build wealth, without trying to rush things along.

As ever, let’s begin by taking a look at that adorable passive income!

Passive income

Source

Amount

Dividends

£10.53

Property Partner

£11.09

Rate Setter

£2.33

Wise Alpha

£3.80

Grand Total

£27.75

This compares favourably to last years result of £8.25. In just 1 year income has more than trebled, that’s the power of regular buying and reinvesting income.

Dividends came in from Apple (£2.92) and National Grid (£7.61). As I’ve switched over from individual stocks to index investing, there won’t be substantial growth in income from such companies, unfortunately.

To counter that, I’ll be buying Vanguards FTSE 100 ETF (VUKE). It has a respectable dividend of 3.91% paid quarterly.

Portfolio Pie

A new (yet small) addition to the pie; Gold!

Using the Glint pay app,  gold can be bought at a fee of just 0.5%. It’s held remotely so gold reserves can be bought or sold instantly. Glint pay recently had a successful crowd-raise on Crowdcube where they raised over £2m (I invested).

Now, I’m not a big fan of gold (unproductive asset alert!), but I am a fan of diversification. I want to slowly build a holding of 2 or 3% in gold.

Yes, I’m aware that Warren Buffett wouldn’t be impressed. However, Ray Dalio would approve. Realistically, adding gold to the Patient Portfolio will have little overall impact, but I hope it will shine brightly when global stocks face dark days.

£22,414.72 (up 0.58% on last month!) is the closing figure for August.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you & your portfolio had a great month.

Yikes! pretty pitiful in all honesty. That’s because there was no work available in my side jobs through the whole month. This is the first time where I made less than even £300.

On the bright side, it was nice to get in some extra rest!

As you can surely tell, I went crazy with the Job Spotter app. You’ll probably be glad to know that all of that money went on buying books.

Of the £3.09 cashback gained. £3 came from the Halifax Reward Account bonus. This used to appear in the Patient Portfolio Update but it makes a lot more sense here as it is not investment income.

Truly a month to forget, only one direction to go from here!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time, happy hustling!
