But, this year I have actually been working more than ever before! For the first few months after I quit, I worked really hard on my Etsy shop. Soon it became clear that wasn't going to be enough to support our family.
I started teaching kids after school art classes. Then we had some unexpected medical expenses. So, I added on working at a local elementary school as a math aide. If you count all the things I was doing for income, there were about 6 different things going on at once for a while.
Now, I have a new plan to keep hustling. It's not some big scheme to flip houses. But, keep my focus on where it belongs, doing small and simple things each day toward reaching my goals.
