    They're not all going to be like this. 
    But it was pretty awesome. 
    The stats are here: 
    Total passive income for Month of June 2023: $11,362.17   Total money invested so far: $16,272   Total passive income for 2023: $15,932.79Total    Monthly rate of return: 69.83%    Yearly cumulative rate of return: 97.92%Money withdrawn from the investment account: $3,600
    This month was the first month that I withdrew money from the account for living expenses. That's the whole point, right? 
    My goal is to live off of this passive income and be able to invest any money that I make.

    May Income Report and My Updated Strategy Explained Episode 11

    May Income Report and My Updated Strategy Explained Episode 11

    Total passive income for Month of May 2023: $1,875.15 Total money invested so far: $16,272 Total passive income for 2022: $3,318.62 total  Monthly rate of return: 11.52%  Yearly cumulative rate of return: 20.39%
    Welcome to the My Bonus Money podcast, where I discuss how educators can make side hustle money. Today, I'll report on my passive income for May 2023 and share my new investment strategy using tips from mybonusoptions.com.
    In May 2023, I earned $1,875.15 in passive income with a total investment of $16,272 so far this year. My monthly rate of return was 11.52%, while my yearly return reached 20.39%.
    My current strategy involves following trade ideas provided by mybonusoptions.com to better understand investing and improve results. Not every tip works out as expected but learning is the goal here.
    For example, I tried an AMC long put trade idea which you can find in the show notes for this episode (not financial advice). The concept behind this strategy is creating a long put on AMC with a $6 strike price to potentially profit from a decrease in stock price while managing risk through setting stop losses.
    After purchasing and later selling the options contract at different prices ($1.01 when bought; $1.14 when sold), I achieved a return of 12.87% on the investment despite some losses along the way.

Changing the financial game for educators

People don’t associate financial freedom with working in education but this show is helping to change that.

Teaching me how to be in charge of my money

As an educator, I gave my financial decisions to someone else. It’s incredibly empowering to start to get to understand this on my own. And Jethro does a great job sharing his journey along the way. He’s learning it with me, and he shares his mistakes as well.

It’s all about developing an Investors Mindset

As an educator, your words resonated with me, “Phew, someone is taking care of my financial future!” I realize 25 years later, I had a consumer mindset and grew “comfortable” with the notion some one else was going to take care of my retirement. I must grab hold of this opportunity and invest. It seems like fun and doesn’t take a lot of $ to get started. Carpe Diem!
