I kept on with the same business as last month, using Fiverr.
I started the month strong by identifying my usual customer’s needs and delivering an app to meet their future needs. It paid off nicely, but took longer than I expected – . Besides that, I looked for no further work, but my client asked me for one more tiny script a few days ago.

Among the lessons learned, though were these two:
- Fiverr delays payouts for 24 hours when you change your information, so set up your PayPal or other payment method with some time.
In the plans for the future – well, this few bucks are enough to fuel my infrastructure needs for the immediate future, so I’ll be dedicating more time to building a business which doesn’t pay relative to development time invested, but instead pays relative to a product’s performance. Hopefully by September or October’s income report this will be all set and have its own space in the income report, even if it only plays a small part.
The time needed to get odd jobs in Fiverr isn’t really worthwhile for me. If I were building bigger things, the story would be different, but I have my day job and business to build, so I can’t really expect to have so much time to schedule… thus, my project scope is necessarily limited. I will keep accepting comissions, especially from my established customers… only not actively seek them out so much.
I have decided not to include the expenses in the reports… it makes no sense in my context because I’m only documenting part of my income, and the expenses supporting that business are payed for by undocumented income. Maybe in the future, for the new business line I’m building.
This is all for now.
