The first half of 2023 has been filled with exciting new projects, experiments, wins, challenges, and everything in between for Side Hustle Nation.

In this progress report, I want to give you an inside look behind the scenes at what I’ve been working on so far this year. The goal is to provide a transparent view into running this side hustle that’s now over 10 years old.

There’s been some new habit installations, email marketing tests, product launches, podcast experiments, website updates, and more. I’ll share what’s going well, what’s still a work in progress, and what’s on the horizon for the rest of 2023 and beyond.

Highs and lows as we turn the calendar into April this year.

From the isolation of the whole family getting the ‘rona in January to some really strong traffic and profit months, never a dull moment!

Heyo good people! Whew — it’s 2022!

Three months ago I was still unburying my office and inbox from moving, and as a result skipped my Q3 2021 Progress Report.

So here’s the Q3 / Q4 / Year-End combo edition. In this post I’ll attempt to highlight some of my most important projects and the impact those had on the bottom line.

Quarterly Progress Report – Q2 2021

Heyo! How’s 2021 treating you far?

Hard to to believe the year’s already half over!

It didn’t feel like I “shipped” a lot in Q2, but we did do some travel and was mostly off with the kids 4-5 days a week, so no complaints there.

How did the first part of 2021 stack up for you?

Are you better off than you were 3 months ago?

Over here, I’m actually feeling pretty sharp physically and mentally so far this year. I’ve been fired up ever since my “Masterpiece Days” chat with Brian Johnson.

2020 Annual Review and Q4 Progress Report

I don’t think many of us predicted 2020 turning out the way it did, but it wasn’t all bad.

In the spring, I remember wishing for a “fast forward” button, a way to just get beyond the lockdowns, anxiety, and isolation.

But playing ostrich and putting my head in the sand wasn’t really an option — not for my family or my work.
