As y’all may or may not know by now this is my weekly re-up. So for week 1, from 9/26 – 10/2, my total revenues from all online businesses combined was…….wait for it……$68! Lol, I know, it doesn’t sound like much, fuck it let’s be real it’s NOT MUCH, and definitely not sustainable. Again, this is just the start though. And for money earned on my terms, from a laptop, I’ll take it.
So for week 1, all money coming in came from just my modeling/advertising gig on fiverr. For those who do not know, Fiverr is a site where you can outsource projects from a wide range of needs starting at only $5. Say, you need someone to design a graphic for you, or be your model, like what I do, this is the place you would go.

Now I have to give you a warning about fiverr. It does take some getting used to in order to navigate through everything and get QUALITY work. There is a reason why Site Jabber has the site rated in red, just below 2 stars. With all that being said though, you can still get quality work done, but more importantly you can make a little cash for yourself.
What attracts sellers most to fiverr is everything is set up for you. You don’t need any startup capital to start making money right away. All you need is an internet connection and a profile registered with fiverr and you can start selling almost ANYTHING! My suggestion for those starting off, and seriously this is the easiest way to make money on fiverr, is to do video testimonials. You record yourself for buyers, promoting their product or service, and it’s that simple. You even choose how much you charge (although when first starting you should only charge $5 per service)!
Back to me though, and the hustle for week 1. For my e-commerce site, I have had $0 in revenue for week 1, however I have spent $100.00 on facebook advertising. What has it garnered me? A bunch of likes and shares of my different products, particularly the Hustle Women’s Tank Top. Now the niche I chose is highly saturated and really, wasn’t the best choice for starting off an online shop, but I mostly did it just to get the experience, and I can always change my niche if I so decide.
I’ve come a long way since this first post and week of my online hustle. Check out my step by step tutorial on How To Build A Profitable An Online Store in under 30 minutes, and start earning profits the same way I do!
For those looking for advice on how to startup an e-commerce site and the advertising that follows I have a few suggestions. First off, check out A Better Lemonade Stand for tips, case studies and much more on how to successfully start and run an e-commerce site. Next, I suggest checking out this guy, Franklin Hatchett on youtube. He will guide you step by step from building an e-commerce site on Shopify, to advertising it on Facebook.
As far as my health coaching site I have made $0.00 this week as well, however I’m glad that I finally have my first downloadable digital product up for sale, and hopefully once I start putting money into advertising, this will bring some money back into my pocket on the backend.
So that’s week 1 of The Hustle Never Ends. Hey, it’s slow, it seems like nothing or not even worth it, however I’ve come to learn that in order to succeed in this business, or any other business, it takes patience, consistency, and the perspective of looking at the bigger picture! This is a marathon baby, and I’m in it for the long haul.
