My Frugal Miser - August 2023 Income

 August wasn't the best month, which is typical.  Meeting work usually slows down as school starts back.  I worked meetings in Austin and Newport Beach the first ten days of the month, a 4 day "budget" meeting later on and a two day event at the end of August.  

I took full advantage of the slowdown, so I don't mind the loss of income as much.  I was able to cross off a few tasks I'd been postponing for months; it feels great to give those tasks "closure."

I received rent from both Alabama rental properties and one distribution from Realty Mogul.  With interest rates rising so fast, I'm worried about a few of the syndication deals I have.  A couple of my investments have floating rate debt that matures in 2024.  It will be difficult to either refinance or sell those properties under the new rate environment.

I also managed to complete a few Amazon routes.  That income pales in comparison to the meeting jobs, but it's usually enjoyable and easy filler when nothing else is going on.  

August Income: $10,359

$7,160 Meeting Jobs
$0 Gig Apps (Rideshare, Food Deliveries, etc.)
$394 Amazon Deliveries
$2,676 Rental Income (Rental Expenses:  $360)
$48 Interest Income
$0 Other Sources

Investment Accounts Change in Value:  $2,967

My investments were up slightly in August.
