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.
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.

Hello everyone. This first week has been good for me. I got on the board Wednesday with an eBay sale. I have a few freelance things that I will be working on this weekend. Last but not least, I will be hitting the thrift stores hard this weekend. It’s game time!
How have y’all been doing this week?
Good job Jason! I feel like such a slacker!!!
Not such a great start for me. My number 1 side hustle is Amazon and I have had problems getting merchandise. I think that won’t be the case next week. I’m also hoping to get a freelance client by the end of the contest.
Keep hustlin Tyler! I hope your supply comes thru next week!
I’m doing okay so far! I’ve made $127.33 this week from my Etsy shop, survey sites, and Poshmark sales. I also worked on promoting my blog and Etsy shop, and I moved to self-hosting and bought a domain for my blog, so hopefully these will help me see bigger returns in the long run.

We’ll see how next week goes! I have to do a work retreat for all of next weekend so I’m a little worried about the lost time there.
Awesome job Katy! I know how time consuming moving to self-hosted can be (I’ve been there too). Good luck! I think you’ll be fine. Remember to enjoy your work retreat!!!
