Financial Goals For 2021 And How To Get Them

Before I even begin, I am going to be completely honest with you. I am scared poop-less in hopes that this works. Thinking about becoming financially independent by doing it online is actually insane to think about. Since moving to Quebec I would say this is one of the things that has scared me the most when it comes to moving was losing my financial independence.

Streaming will probably be the easiest for me to make some sort of income with since I already make some money per month. Ideally I would like to get the threshold of 100$ per month so that I can consistently get paid through streaming however I am going to start with a slightly lower one. For streams you are able to put in a subscriber goal for the month. I am going to do 25 sub points which is not far off of what I have now which is approx 19 subscriber points. If I can hit this I think it will approx give me 40$ per month. I also am going to add a bits (Twitch currency) or monetary goal of about 10$. This should bring me up to 50$ per month with a pay out every 2 or so. I know that I will be able to keep this going and hopefully raise it up with the content I am going to be putting out as well too. I know it is achievable and I hope that by sharing these little widgets of sorts to my stream overlays that my community will see that I have new goals and that would be to become financially independent. I think this could help as I begin to grow my brand so people can see the direction that I would like to be taking with this.

Fiverr is something I am scared to try but I think I could be able to do great things with it. I have an idea for a specific type of poem I would like to offer to make for people. I think this could be a great avenue for a source of income. I know very little about the site though and I know they do take a commission but I think it could be a start. I have to really sit down and think of what I would charge for someone who would like to hire me for a “gig” and what not. Look at the types of people and if anyone is offering something similar either. All of these things I think will be more towards the end of the year goal financially. I think if I work with what I do know now then I can get things going and add as I go. I do think it could be extremely useful though since I do love poetry and it could be another creative outlet for me to create and make a few bucks that would be even better!

Art Work is something that I have a challenge with. It inst so much about me trying to create pieces for sale, it is more or less about me trying to reach people who would like to buy these pieces. A big part for me will be to use my Art Instagram and my Art twitter accounts a lot more when putting pieces up for sale as well as here on the blog. I think it could be a great way to bring in potential customers when I have finished a piece as well too. For me to predict the type of money I could make form this I really have no answer. I will say though that if I was able to make even 50$ per month on this that would be key. I also have to figure out shipping costs and to begin with I would probably only be selling pieces to Canada and United States since it may be challenging and costly to send pieces to Europe currently. I would like to expand but how to get there is just a bit of a mystery to me. I know it obviously can be done it is just making the point of putting it forward!

Patreon I think is something I could do quite well but geared towards different crafts or items hand made per month. Like say a card of the month where I design a card and send it to you for 5$ or something. And the next set would be a bit more include other things as well. The hardest part of this would be similar to the Fiverr problem which is sitting down and weighing in the cost of materials and seeing how I go from there. How much does it cost to send and how much does it cost for materials. I think if I was to sit down and plan this out it could be a solid choice if people showed interest in this per month as well too.

Tutoring is something I would like to attempt to start to do since I am living in a french province and I could be teaching English. However this is something I would need to put out a post on Kijiji or something like that. I don’t even know what I would charge per hour but I think I could also do this which could be useful in making a few bucks. Even if I charged say 15$ per hour of teaching and speaking English, and I had 3 students per week, that is nearly 45$ per week of income that I could be making as well too! I may have to put out feelers for this on websites to start the year and see where we go from there!

Blogging would be something that could be seemingly simple for me since I already do this. I have thought since I have purchased the personal blogger package (You know since I’m taking this way more serious than last year) that I can add that feature in. I haven’t really researched it before but I would do something along the lines of a few blogs per month being uncensored. I think it could be really neat but I am not even thinking about that until i have some decent growth on my followers here. Maybe when I start to have 250 followers and things will I start to consider that. It wont be very expensive only a few dollars per month if that is how you bill things and see where we go from there!

Ill update this in about 6 months with a new post about how my financial stability and independence is coming along. No point in updating this every month since there are things I wont be implementing!

Are you a stay at home parent? Do you have an income by working at home?

Let me know in the comments below! Maybe you have a different way I haven’t thought of before!
