Nearly 4 in 10 Americans have some type of side hustle or part-time gig to help them make some extra money.

Ready to join their ranks?

Or better yet…want to avoid ‘side-hustle mediocrity’ and join the ranks of the truly successful entrepreneurs and investors?

You’ve come to the right place.

The mission of Part-Time Money is to help you improve your life by discovering and scaling a part-time hustle or small business idea.

Your personal finances are a part of this mission too. So we’ll help you tackle that as well.

The extra money each month can help you:

  • pay off debt faster
  • save more for the future
  • feel more secure
  • live richer now (i.e., travel, experience)
  • give more to Church and charity
  • change careers or quit altogether
  • spend more time with family
  • reach financial independence
  • and whatever else you want out of life

Just a little extra income can have a huge impact.

However, a lot of extra income can radically change your life and the lives of those around you forever.

We’re not here to just help you find the next hot side hustle, only to leave you simply trading time for money.

Sure, that’s fine for a while. But the big wins come when you take your ideas and passions, and you learn to serve a bigger audience with big value.

We can show you how it’s done.

And we’ll share plenty of case studies from other entrepreneurs and financial pros who’ve done it too.

My Part-Time-to-Full-Time Story

My name is Philip Taylor, but you can call me PT. I live in North Texas with my beautiful (and frugal) wife and kids.

There was a time in my late twenties when I wondered if I’d ever discover that idea that would allow me to escape the safe but unsatisfying career path I found myself on. I wanted true freedom.

I had dabbled in ‘the hustle’ in my early 20s: waiting tables, parking cars, mowing lawns, lifeguarding, and yes, even playing in a band.

Somewhere along the way, I gave up on that dream of freedom. Freedom that comes from calling my own shots and doing something every day that I loved.

Before I knew it, my personal finances had become a burden. I found myself more dependent on the corporate paycheck. I felt trapped with my car loans, student loans, and poor spending habits.

Then I discovered some weird brave people on the Internet who were willing to share their success with money, side-hustling, and building a business.

It was like I’d uncovered a secret society of people who were exposing the way the world actually worked.

I ate it up.

These unknowing mentors gave me the fuel, confidence, and accountability I needed to start on my own journey toward financial freedom and entrepreneurial success.

Three years later I left my job and started working on my side-hustle full-time.

I’ve had the pleasure of writing for US News & World Report, the TurboTax blog, Voya Financial blog, and the Medi-Share blog. You can also find my work on countless other personal finance blogs.

And I’ve even had a few TV appearances and other features. But I prefer to be behind the keyboard.

I’m now fully self-employed, supporting my family using the income generated from this site.

I’ve also gone on to create FinCon, the annual conference for financial nerds like myself. It’s a blast, and I get to hang out with my buddies and heroes.

None of this would have been possible had I not taken control of my financial life and started building something of value for others.

I’m now able to shift my focus towards achieving complete financial independence, growing my businesses, and investing in real estate. Not to mention more time investing in my family.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
