Reviewing My September Goals
I mostly moved sideways in September. I guess that's better than falling behind.
I earned $1,864 from mystery shopping (my goal was $2,000)
My credit card/car loan balance decreased, to $39,999 (my goal was $40,000)
I created my 2011 Capital Expense budget.
I achieved two of my three goals. Once again I had a slow month for mystery shopping. I tried to get to $2,000 (my goal) but even that is less than I made earlier this year. This really is hard work. It isn't challenging work (which would be nice every now and then), but it takes a lot of effort for little pay. What makes it so hard isn't the actual shopping but instead it's the hunt for work, training for each job and the paperwork involved in submitting my reports.
