August 2013 Survey Income

August 31st, 2013 at 01:51 pm

Just to review, I'm a physician and get to do a lot of market research surveys and focus groups online, via webcam, and occasionally in person. This serves as a reasonable source of income, especially when I keep my butt in gear and do them regularly.

At the end of May, my wife left her job and has been at home full time since then. I decided then that I needed to step up my game and increase my survey income to try and compensate for the loss of her income. She was putting 50% into her 401k, which I can't replace, but she was also bringing home about $385/month. That's what I needed to make up for - the money that we actually got for spending.

For the first 5 months of the year, my average monthly survey income was $608 which is pretty typical for what I've earned doing this.

As I've posted previously, in June I earned $739, so a bit over the average. In July, I was up to $799. I figured $800/month was achievable so made that my goal.

For the month of August, I earned $1,332!!!

That made it the best month of the year by over $500. It gave me a monthly average over the 3 months since she stopped working of a little over $956. I don't think I can sustain that kind of income but even a couple of months like that really boost the average for the year so I'm very happy with that.

September may be a little light because we were on vacation for 12 days. I did do a few surveys while we were away but not as many as usual. Still, I have a couple of webcam programs scheduled so we'll see how it turns out. For now, I'm very optimistic.

July 2013 Survey Income

August 1st, 2013 at 05:41 am

I've continued my quest to replace as much of my wife's income as possible by doing more medical surveys (I'm a physician). For the month of July, I earned $799 making it my 2nd best month of the year. I was a little annoyed that I just missed the $800 mark but that's fine. My goal is to average $800/month from now on so I'm right on track.
