July 2023 Side Hustle Report – $3,890.64

It’s hard to believe that were are more than half way through 2023. With peak of the summer months some side hustles have exploded, while other income streams have dried up (for now).

Welcome to another edition of the Financial Tutor side hustle report. As a brief recap if you’re new here, each month, I document what I made from side hustling using various gig economy and sharing economy apps. I have mountains of data here. I’ve been tracking this income since 2019, so I have over 4 years of side hustle reports detailing all of the different ways I’ve earned extra money using these different apps. More importantly through data, trial and error, I have been able to see what works, so I can pass the important findings on to you, so you can make replicate the side hustle and start making money for yourself! I find it incredible how much I’ve been able to earn from these different apps over the years. Hopefully, you find this info helpful too.

In today’s post, we’ll be taking a look at what I was able to earn from these apps in July 2023. Below is what I made from each app last month.

Side Hustle Income for July 2023

Total Side Hustle Income for July 2023 = $597.19

July was a solid month on the side hustle front. I ended up earning a over a thousand with two of the side hustles. Not bad at all, especially considering that some of the side hustles are relatively new.

The bulk of my earnings for the month came from Aribnbing my extra apartment in my three-unit apartment and Amazon On-Site Commissions.

Below is a more in-depth look at my earnings with each gig economy app.

I recently started a new full time job, so I had a lot less time to dedicate to walking jobs. I really enjoy this side hustle and view it as a good reason to go for a walk and play with dogs, so going forward I want to make more of an effort to do the walks after work.

This was a crazy month for Amazon On-Site Commissions. Not only was it Prime Day in July, but Amazon also gave me a random commission boost. Most of the rates were doubled! Which helped to significantly increase the commissions compared to June (totalled $1,551).

In my opinion, this is one of the easiest side hustles to start and has HUGE potentially to make a lot of money and best part it's pretty passive. May sound too good to be true, but this could be the best side hustle I've tried in years. I will have a lot more content and reviews to go full in depth on how to get started for yourself.

Sharegrid: (Camera Rental): $0

I have my GoPro 7 hero, GoPro Fusion, and DJI Mavic 2 drone for rent on Sharegrid website. Sharegrid is a website where people local can rent camera equipment. I had two people this month request to rent the drone, but one of them didn't want to purchase insurance and the other renter didn't work with timing, since I was out of town. So unfortunately I didn't have any request for this month.

If you’re a regular reader, you know that I bought a three-flat in Chicago in June 2019. I lived in the building while doing the renovations and moved out in June of this year. The top unit rents for $2,700 per month, plus $150 for the two car garage. My girlfriend and I live in the garden unit and she pays $300 for rent. For the bottom garden unit we rent short-term on Airbnb (totals covered in the section below). So in total I'm collecting around $3,150 per month in rents, plus whatever Airbnb brings in.

My monthly mortgage payment with insurance and property taxes was $2,886.88. There were no repairs in July, which meant I earned a total of $263.12 for the month of September.

I recently completely renovated the garden unit to do Airbnb or VRBO full time. This month seems low, compared to June's total of $4,628, because most of the payments were sent and counted in June. We were almost at 100% occupancy in July with only four days unbooked.

If you average out the June and July short-term rental income, it comes out to $2,892. We did have three new guests in June, which meant we had to pay $332 in cleaning fees.

And that concludes the July 2023 Side Hustle Report.

July was a decent side hustle month and I think a good example of why it’s important to have different sources of gig economy income. One of my main goals for 2023, is to try 15+ new side hustles, with two of them making at least $1000+ a month, but we are along ways with needing 12 more side hustles.

I’m not making big finance money or anything, but I’m making enough to feel comfortable. And between the choice of making more but working those crazy finance hours, I’ll always opt to do this, where I can decide what my day looks like and write and do gig economy stuff during the day.
