More money each month

September 11th, 2006 at 03:50 pm

I decided to take on another flute student. It's a huge decision because I'm basically only doing it because it's more money to throw at debt and it's easy money and it's something I really enjoy. But, I have to be committed to this student as long as she wants to stay with me and she's in the 6th grade. This could be a 6 year committment. But, I know her mom really well and she assures me that her daughter is a good student.

So, that is another $60-$75 per month. I may just put that money into my savings account so that it is there when I need it. I have over extended us with my high standards for paying down debt, which is what gets us into trouble. There is no room for error in our budget. I could just cut down on a payment one month, but that does bad things to me psychologically! LOL! $60 wiggle-room every month is nice. And yet, that's only $15/wk wiggle room. Perhaps both my flute students should be wiggle room money. No, I already figured that money into my monthly goal money.

I will get there! I just have to keep plugging along! Rolling, rolling, rolling!

    Are you a professional flutist? I played in high school -- picking up the flute again is something I want to do after I retire.

    Professional? No. It's just a hobby. I almost majored in it in college, but my step-father was a band director, and he highly discouraged it. I'm glad that he did. It is now my hobby, but not my living, so I can just enjoy it. I have been teaching since I was in the 9th grade. It is a great money maker! 15 years ago when I first started I charged $3.50 per half hour, which was outragiously cheap, even then. But that was $7.00/hr. I certainly couldn't make that flipping burgers back then. In college I charged $16/hr, which again, I couldn't make anywhere else. That money really helped in college.

    Thanks for all the support! This certainly is going to be quite a journey.
