#1KHustle Side Income Challenge: Week 1 Updates

Hello Sophisticated Spenders!

And welcome #1KHustlers

It’s time to check in with some updates!

We want to hear all about your successes, failures, redesigns, goals, plans, execution lists, excuses…pretty much everything!

Here are my week 1 updates:

Monday: Only spent about an hour on the webinar (Full time job got in the way-excuse).

Tuesday:  Went to the Museum of African American History (more on that later).  I left that place SO inspired!

Wednesday:  Had a quick lunch at the same museum.  Blogged about the contest entrants.  Ongoing collection of names and ideas for sewing webinar.  I have some really cute pieces that I’ve seen and I have no idea how to make but I’m gonna make it happen!

Thursday:  The labels that I created for the sewing webinar arrived.  They look SO cool!  I may make another side hustle out of showing people how to create their own labels (and fabric). Secured a venu for an on-location webinar.  Need to pick between 2 dates: Oct 23rd and/or Oct 30th.  I will do both dates if there’s enough interest.

I made these!

Friday:  Email sewing webinar survey.  I’ve compiled a list of things I think I should know about each attendee.

Saturday: I had planned on attending a meetup for Black Girl Entrepreneurs but there was  HUGE last minute change in the entire setup of the meeting (location, agenda and everything).  So I decided to not go (excuse).  I will possibly attend their next meetup on Oct 15th.  Hopefully the survey results will roll in and I’ll have an understanding of my 3 options for a class.

Plans for next week:

Sunday:  My mom and little brother leave today so I’ll have more free time (sounds like another excuse to me).  I am not allowed to leave the house until I create my 5 emails about the webinar.  And I HAVE to get a testable website ready.

Monday:  Holiday!  Extra time to work on everything.  My plan is to: Send email #1, create a social media sharing plan (suggested tweets and email campaigns).  Take pictures of all options: material and sewing kit.

Tuesday: Ask community for help spreading the word about the webinar.  Figure out how to collect payment.  Figure out the price of all materials to make item #1 for the webinar.

Wednesday: Go live with webinar “tickets.”  Secure realistic number of sewing machines for the live class.  Create list of options for tickets: in person option vs. online version vs online version with all materials included.

Thursday:  Mail materials for the people who selected online version with all materials included.

Friday:  Testing, testing, testing.

Saturday:  Testing, testing, testing.

Your Turn!!!
