Why am I doing this blog about earning extra income?  It’s simple, I love to travel.

As I child I read and re-read my grandmother’s dog-eared collection of National Geographic Magazines, with the big, bold, beautiful photos. Gigantic maps stretched across the floor with the markings of lakes and mountains. Strange words identified the villages, towns, and cities of far-away lands. My grandmother, a retired teacher from the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), asked questions after I finished reading an article and taught me to think about the impacts of geography on world cultures.

This certainly influenced my love for travel.

But, travel is expensive!

Even with creative hacks and friends who offer an overnight sofa or guest room, traveling is rarely free. So, I’ve mastered small side gigs and am constantly adding to my travel fund. I’ve been fortunate to travel internationally through with my corporate career and much-needed vacations. I plan every trip in painstaking detail, searching for deals and meaningful experiences. My side hustles make it just a little lighter on the wallet.

My side gigs make it just a little lighter on the wallet.

I’m a teacher at heart, constantly sharing my tips with family and friends. With the reach of the internet, I’m delighted to share these tips with you and help you accomplish your side gig income goals even faster.
