Can You Make Money on the Side by Blogging? 

Welcome to the next Side Jam Interview! In this week’s post, you’ll learn more about Brian, who’s been blogging about personal finance for several years. He actually manages several blogs, all in his spare time.

We’ll explore what makes blogging so awesome, how you could potentially make money blogging, and why it’s so much harder than you’d think it would be. (And I will be the very first to wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment!)

Brian’s got quite a bit of knowledge and experience under his belt. In addition to blogging about money and other finance topics, he and his family successfully dug themselves out of debt. And he’s using his real-life experiences to carry the message forward to others.

Side Jam Interview #6 – Selling Products on Amazon

Hey everybody! Thanks for stopping by for the next Side Jam Interview!

When I started this interview series a month and a half ago, the main purpose was to highlight unique, interesting, and creative ways to make extra money on the side.

I wanted to interview people about side hustles they’ve tried, and find out the real scoop:

  • Is it legit or a scam?
  • Were you able to make money?
  • How much effort was involved?
  • Did it require any prior skills?
  • Was it ultimately worth the time put into it?

And the responses I’ve been getting do not disappoint. Not only have I been receiving an impressive amount of information, but the enthusiasm infused with each response has been absolutely infectious!

I honestly feel so blessed to not only work with some truly amazing folks, but also because of the connections I’m making. Yes, believe it or not, this self-proclaimed introvert is starting to network.




Sharing Money-Making Success Stories

With this next installment, I’ll be introducing Marc who started an online business with his wife. They were able to manage a successful business selling products on Amazon, and basically made a killing!

Hearing great stories like this really keep me motivated to continue doing what I’m doing. Not necessarily because I expect to have this massive success myself. (Although there’s no true reason why that couldn’t happen.) But because I love sharing the good that’s out there in the world.

I want others to realize they can try new things, learn a new skill, and find interesting ways to make money on the side. If it exists in your imagination, there’s more than likely a way to turn it into reality.
