Let's get to know each other!
Hey I'm Daniella, a serial side hustler, entrepreneur and cat lover. Over the last 2 years my wife M and I have been able to pay off $32,000 in debt (including my $15,000 student loan debt) partially thanks to side hustles. I say partially because anyone can do a million side hustles but if they don’t manage that extra money coming in, it can easily disappear. The money management skills we picked up along the way made it possible to use that side hustle money for good. If you want to know how horrible we use to be with money before starting this blog, this post is a real treat.
We were also able to increase our income at our day jobs during that time which was a HUGE help. This made it possible to start contributing more towards retirement, investing outside of those retirement accounts, and be able to put more money into our side businesses and grow them. Getting not only our financial lives, but emotional lives in order got us thinking about what we really want out of life. A future of complete financial freedom is what we are aiming for.
What This Blog is All About
I am a software engineer by day and blogger by... well...any other time of the day (and night lol). I have always been a huge side hustler so being able to find a side hustle like blogging has been amazing for me. Blogging has changed my life, given me confidence, and helped with my finances.
In addition to side hustles and ways to start your own hustle, here you will also learn about various financial tips including ways to save money, traveling for cheap or free, tips to pay off debt, creative careers and more. Since sustainable living is an interest of mine, I will post here and there about sustainable living tips and alternative lifestyles such as minimalism and tiny living.
I am so glad you found this blog and glad you're here!
I created the FREE Iliketodabble Save & Side Hustle Facebook Group just for my readers and anyone you want to invite. It is an inclusive group where everyone can talk freely about saving more, making more, traveling and life in general!

A Little About Me & My Wife
M and I both work in I.T. and met at work. We got engaged on the beach under fireworks and eloped on that same beach in a hurricane (tropical storm, but you get it). We've been traveling since the day we met and won't stop anytime soon.
She is also a side hustler and flips guitars on eBay (I attempt to help). We have 5 cats, 2 dogs, 4 tarantulas and 1 snake because...animals are cool.
We are building up our side hustles to one day be our full hustles, creating and building up sources of passive income streams and saving and investing as much of that extra money as we can. Basically, we are working our butts off until we can become financially free. More on that in this post about what financial freedom means to us.
But we are still going to have a little fun while doing it. Even though we are trying to aggressively save with our side hustles, we don't save every penny we get. That is why I included cheap travel in this blog. We aren't going to be tied down to one spot. Finances aren't our only focus. Living a healthy and happy life is always #1.
More money is not the ULTIMATE goal here, time and freedom are.
