I love sharing my goals with friends….but only close and trusted friends that will support and encourage you and even brainstorm ideas to help each other in our respective personal pursuits.
Georgie Abay from The Grace Tales gave me a brilliant idea to help me with The $1,000 Project by suggesting that I look into renting my house out on Air B’N’B over the Christmas – New Year break whilst away on holiday in Berry.
This was such a brilliant idea, and admittedly there was a lot of cleaning, tidying and organising that needed to be done in preparation of my guest “checking in”, but this forced me to get my house in order and looking and feeling wonderful. I rented the house out and made almost $2,000.
The experience with Air B’N’B was easy, simple and felt safe. I was paid on time, my house was returned in spotless condition and a lovely couple stayed in my house and even left me some chocolates and biscuits to say thank you.
The money went straight into my trading account and I purchased some more shares, my passive income is now almost $740, with Telstra and Crown added to the portfolio. This means that I am 37% of the way towards my $2,000 p.a. passive income goal! Almost half way!
You can see some pics from our break away with my girlfriends, Georgie and Camille and their adorable daughters here on The Grace Tales….(lucky Rocco!)
