My Goal: Part 1) To be making 1/4 of our mortgage payment through my side business adventures by the deadline of this challenge
First, I have to admit that I freaked out slightly over the weekend about this goal. We pay our taxes and insurance with our monthly mortgage payment and when I figured out the amount I thought I had bitten off more than I could chew. I talked it over with Jeff before I wrote the goal and again when I freaked out. He thought I would just be shooting for 1/4 of the house payment not the taxes and insurance and I thought I was shooting for the whole kit and kaboodle. For the time being, I’m only working towards a goal of 1/4 of the actual house payment, if I get to the point where I’m including taxes and insurance that’ll be awesome but not the original intent of the goal.
Progress Report:I submitted my first ever magazine article query last week and have had some promising feedback from the magazine’s editorial staff (though no concrete deal, yet) about that query. I’m keeping my fingers crossed about this, it would mean so much for me to have this happen on many different levels, but it would go a long way towards helping me meet this financial goal. I’ve been hanging up flyers about my upcoming canning classes and from what I understand the classes are filling up fast. I’ve been sewing lots for an upcoming craft show and to hopefully fill my etsy shop.
