Disclaimer: An extra $500 a month is just an example amount. There is no guarantee that anybody will earn any money at all. The amount you earn will vary and relies on many different factors. You could earn way less than $500 in any given month and you could earn way more than $500 in a month.

Be purposeful with your extra monthly earnings

I’m sure if you were able to make an EXTRA $500 a month – it wouldn’t be difficult to find ways to spend it. The thing is… it’s good to be purposeful with your money. I’ve found that there are many advantages to having a specific purpose in mind when it comes to setting goals and making plans for how you spend your money. This is especially true if you are side-hustling and trying to create extra income on the side.

Creating an extra $500 a month, or even $500 a week, just to add to your regular budget is hardly purposeful at all. If you tie your extra earnings to a specific spending goal – you are far more likely to hit your earning goals! I encourage you to try this yourself for a few months! Pick one of the items we’ve listed below for what to do with EXTRA monthly income, or come up with something of your own, and dedicate your extra earnings just for that purpose.
