Do you know one of the fastest ways to supplement your income and get paid well?  It’s to get paid to do something you already have the skillset for.  

You can literally put yourself to work immediately, IF you have the hustle. 

This week we hear from our listener Chris in PA.  Chris wrote in to let us know how she has leveraged her writing skills into freelance work that is netting her $800 a month. That’s a pretty great addition to someone’s monthly income and can really accelerate your FI plans. 

Way to Go Chris

As with any business, there are some Pros and Cons. Here are a few that Curtis and I talk about.


  • Flexibility 
  • Easy Start-up 
  • Low start-up 
  • Easy Entry-no additional skills
  • Work Remotely 
  • High potential income
  • Work with who you want



  • Responsibilities that come with business ownership (Taxes, tracking expenses, etc.) 
  • You have to go get your business
  • Tracking down payment from bad clients
  • Difficult clients

We hope that this episode has gotten your wheels spinning!  

There are so many areas that you can do freelance work.  Some of these great freelance side-hustles are listed below: 

  • Podcast editing 
  • resume writing 
  • guest posts 
  • writing for other bloggers 
  • Voiceovers 
  • Web Design 
  • Social Media Marketing 
  • and the list goes on….

The possibilities are limitless.  Simply ask yourself, What skill do I currently possess that other people would pay me for? 

Then go ask! (Remember what Curt’s mom used to say, “Closed mouths don’t get fed.)
