Today was a rainy day here in my part of Texas.

I'll be really honest, I don't really enjoy driving in the rain here.

My hubby tells me to just take it slow, stay in the right lane of traffic and not to take it personally or get stressed out when my fellow drivers tail gate me.

To me, that's easier said than done.

But hey, I'm trying!

So yes, today was a 40 minute drive on the freeway to my destination and that's still pretty good considering it was $80 for  2.5 hours of my time including the drive, which worked out to about $32 per hour.

I'm happy with that, especially considering there are other times that I work about 5 minutes from home for the same amount of money or more so it all averages out to about $40 per hour for the most part.

I really do love this business!

If you subscribe to my newsletter, you may know that I have applied to Field Inspection companies to try to fill in the cracks while things are slow with the Mortgage industry.

I went ahead and applied to all the companies I recommended to you as my readers and I heard back from almost all of them.

One in particular seems very promising in that I was told to expect $70 per appointment for 30 minutes of work.

I'll see how that pans out and I'll definitely keep you posted, but in the meantime, if you're looking for a good side hustle , check out my list of Field Inspection companies here.

I'm really trying to branch out and start building multiple streams of income so that I'm not reliant on just one business model that can fall apart.

Ok, so don't judge me but I have bought SO MANY courses over the years.

My toxic trait is buying them and then not even starting them.


Like, wha- whaat?


That is literally so so silly.


So, I went back to a course that I bought last year and am commiting to taking it lesson by lesson, block by block and picking up a new skill AND a new business to boot!


This course is on how to build passive income by creating digital printables to sell on ETSY.


OOH boy am I excited about this one.


Over the last couple of years, my Notary business was rockin it so hard that I literally had no time to look at this course.

I guess one of the blessings of a slow time in my Notary business right now is that I can start planting my seeds for building a solid foundation for multiple streams of income.  


PASSIVE income to be precise, because I really do want more freedom to do the things I want to do, namely , spend more time with my family.



Today was busy despite having only one signing.

I got breakfast prepared for my family, went to my signing, dropped off the signed documents at FedEx..


Then came home and built a page for this website,

Prepared and sent out my weekly newsletter,


Got dinner made, which was easy because I used  one of the freezer meals that I made at the beginning of October ( those freezer meals are SUCH a lifesaver)

... and now I'm updating this page before I settle in for the night, watch an episode of Virgin River on Netflix .. and chill.


Ah.  Grateful for today.
