November 2019 Goals -The Results Are In…
November has been a very difficult month for me. This made it very difficult to keep up with my goals, in particular, the daily challenges. With that being said, I tried my best to persevere and keep pushing towards them. In this blog post, I’ve taken some time to review the goals I set for the month. In my blog post, November2019 goals, I outlined nine goals that I wanted to achieve for the month. To recap, these goals were as follows:
- 30 Day Prayer Challenge
- Earn £750 Via Side Hustles
- 15 No Spend Days
- 12 30 Minute Exercise Sessions
- Read And Review The Richest Man In Babylon
- Declutter Bedroom And Playroom
- Daily Journaling
- Publish 5 Blog Posts
- Instagram Post A Day Challenge
In this blog post, I’ll be sharing the results for my November goals. I’ll provide a breakdown on how much money I generated through side hustles, and lessons learned along the way. If you’re currently on your own financial freedom journey or interested to see the results of goal-setting then read on.
1 – 30 Day Prayer challenge
I managed to complete 28 out of 30 days of the prayer challenge.
2 – Earn £750 Through Side Hustles
I didn’t quite achieve my £750 target but I came pretty close, I made £636.80 via my various side hustles. I found it a lot harder this month to make money via Shpock and Facebook Marketplace. The reason for this is I sold most of the valuable things around the house in October. I’ve literally run out of things worth selling! In December I’m going to have to think of some more creative ways to make an extra income. If you have any great suggestions please leave them in the comments section below.
The breakdown of my side hustle income is as follows:
- Deluxe Crochet Braids – £260
This is only my second full month crocheting hair and I’m pleased to report another 5 clients booked my services. Result! I’ve only promoted my services via Whats App stories, Shpock and Instagram, so the fact that I’m actually getting clients to book my services is pretty incredible. It’s so true what they say, there’s enough food for us all to eat! If there’s anything you want to start just start it, you don’t know who is going to need the product or service you’re going to offer. Don’t worry if Jo Blogs is doing it – he/she isn’t you. If you want to do it just go for it.
- Wedding supplies sale – £200
Instead of hiring plates and cutlery for our wedding buffet, we decided to buy them as this worked out cheaper. The plan was to hire them out after the wedding to other people to use for their events (Another one of my many side hustle ideas!). Well, that never happened, the boxes were sat in my mother-in-laws’ shed gathering dust for years! I managed to sell them to a caterer who’ll put them to good use.
- Facebook Marketplace – £96
- Shpock -£65
- Cash for clothes – £15.80
This place is daylight robbery! £15.80 is the amount they paid me for 36kg worth of clothes, shoes, and bags. This is the price of laziness. I was too lazy to continue listing the items individually and as bundles on eBay and I wanted them out of my house asap. I regret it now though, and would advise you to avoid these places at all costs! You’re actually better of taking these items to the charity shop than selling them to these people.
3 – 15 No Spend Days
The goal was 15 No spend days and I ended up completing 23. I found this challenge quite easy because food didn’t count. I’m sure if food was included in the no spend days I probably would have only completed 5.
4 – 12 30 Minute Exercise Sessions
Wow, this is terrible! I literally didn’t exercise at all this month. This is embarrassing and I don’t actually have an excuse for my poor performance here. What I will say is momentum is everything, once you lose it, it’s so hard to get started again. I really want to get back into exercising as it does so much good physically and mentally.
5- Read And Review The Richest Man In Babylon
I’m glad to report that I finished reading The Richest Man In Babylon and wrote my review of it here. This book is arguably one of the most inspiring books on wealth ever written and provides great insight into how to build and keep wealth.
6 – Declutter Bedroom And Playroom
I finally finished decluttering the kids’ playroom. I was disappointed to find that there weren’t actually many toys in a good enough condition to sell. But at least we have a tidy playroom that the boys can actually play in so decluttering was still a worthwhile task.
7 – Daily Journaling
I wrote in my journal 25/30 days in November. I find journaling quite therapeutic and this is definitely something I want to continue doing on a daily basis indefinitely.
8 – Publish 5 Blog Posts
I published 3/5 blog posts this month. Not quite the 5 posts I had intended, but I shifted focus mid-month from writing new content to editing and improving existing content.
9 – Instagram Post A Day Challenge
I posted almost every day for the first 2 weeks but then fell off due to matters beyond my control. Moving forward I want to be able to post more consistently on Instagram but I don’t know if I can commit to daily as I have so much more on my plate that I want to focus on in December.
November has been a crazy and challenging month but overall I’m proud of my accomplishments. Although once again I didn’t achieve all the goals that I set out to achieve, I’m definitely in a better position than I was a month ago and I’ve grown as a person in so many ways too. Knowing what I’m working towards helped keep me on track and focussed on a daily basis. How has your November been? Did you achieve your goals?
