**Sept 24, 2022 Update**
Side Bacon is currently in the path of what will be Hurricane Ian (at roughly 13 feet above sea level). Updates will be paused for a few days or potentially more as we prepare for the storm. Lots of bacon must be salted to ensure it won’t go bad from the power outages, and rafts are being constructed for the website servers to ensure we can stay online while we float to a new home. Company executives have all agreed to allow alligators to be employed as our new writers in the event that we can’t find dry land again. To be continued…
Your experience and skill level with side hustles and marketing will determine what training will work best for you and your online business. The SideBacon Blog contains information for complete beginners all the way up to experts. I recommended these posts for each skill level..

In 2022, I’m 39 years old. I’ve been married for 18 years with three kids (one grown and out of the house already), and I’ve been an online business owner and creator full-time since 2009. I’ve already lived many of life’s financial situations – everything from being so broke I have to live on Ramen noodles to swimming in expendable income with six figures in annual earnings. Through all of those life experiences and the pursuit of knowledge along the way, I have picked up a lot of helpful financial information that can help others.
Anyone can offer financial advice, so why should you trust what I have to say? Everything on this website is based on my personal experience over 20+ years. I love learning new things and have experimented with more strategies and techniques than most people do in their entire lifetime. I started a family at a young age and raised three kids – most of the time being the sole financial provider and money manager. Completely by myself and sitting at my home computer, I’ve created three different online businesses that have generated six figure annual revenues. My knowledge doesn’t end there though… it even includes house buying, cryptocurrency investing, bitcoin mining, credit scores, stock market investing, budgeting and still much more.
My experiences and knowledge cover such a vast range of topics, you’ll often receive a unique perspective from me that you won’t hear elsewhere. Unfortunately it is not a simple or straightforward act to manage your personal finances because each person’s situation is different. I tend to think about financial situations from multiple positions and viewpoints to figure out what is best for me, and I can help pass along this knowledge to you to apply it to your own life.
On this website, you can expect to find information to help you manage your money, insights on building a good credit score, learn to wisely use investments to grow wealth, and even create your own business to help achieve financial freedom. No matter how much knowledge I provide here, there is still one key ingredient to your success that I cannot provide – YOU! If you don’t take my information seriously and dedicate yourself to apply it to your own life, then nothing can change. The real secret to success is taking action. Making mistakes is better than doing nothing at all.
