Episode 70. How Jannese Earned Over $100,000 In Side Hustle Income In 2020 | With Host and Creator of YQD™ Jannese Torres


Episode 70 comes with Jannese’s 9 tips on how she made over $100,000 in side hustle income in 2020! If you’re ready to add some additional income streams in your life this year, this is the episode for you!

For episode 70, the host and creator of Yo Quiero Dinero™, Jannese Torres, brings you her first monthly solo episode of the season, where she drops all the tea on the nine steps she took over the last 8+ years to reach her first six-figure side-hustle income.

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that diversifying our income streams is a must. After experiencing a layoff in her full-time job back in 2013, Jannese decided that she no longer wanted to rely on a single source of income. At the time, Jannese took what was most interesting and fun for her to start a blog: Delish D’Lites.

Now, she didn’t monetize this until a few years after she started the blog; it took some time. But in this episode, Jannese is giving you the nine things that brought her to this point—of now earning six figures.

Episode 70 Highlights:

  • Monetizing what she enjoys—For her food blog, this was cooking. Jannese started a blog and eventually started tapping into different methods of monetizing a blog. As she learned more about money, she developed what is today, Yo Quiero Dinero™, where we offer free educational content to thousands of wealth-builders, but have also found creative ways of monetizing the platform.
  • Tapping into your skills—Monetization doesn’t look one certain way. Do you like reviewing products? Try brand partnerships and sponsors. Do you like writing? Try freelance writing of articles
  • Practicing patience—This multi six-figure side hustle income didn’t happen overnight. To be quite specific, it took eight years (and counting) of operating in this side hustle space before Jannese reached her first ever six-figure year.
  • Jannese’s nine tips—most of the ones Jannese gives become passive forms of income after some initial effort at building your brand. She’s talking over $80,000 from one single stream alone…Yup, you read that right!
