November 2013 Survey Income

November 30th, 2013 at 04:33 pm

I usually just give a quick review but let me give a little more detail again for those who haven't been following along. I'm a physician and in addition to my practice, I do a lot - and I do mean a lot - of medical surveys, market research, focus groups, etc. as a way to make some extra money. The past couple of years, I was pretty consistenly averaging about $600/month doing this. Then in May of this year, my wife left her job and has been at home since then. I set out to replace as much of her income as possible by stepping up my survey business. My goal was to bring in at least an additional $200/month ($800/month total). As you can see on the sidebar, I've done a good job. Starting in June, my average has actually been just over $900/month.

For the month of November, I knew my total would be good. As I posted last month, I had the opportunity to do a few particularly lucrative programs in October so I knew that income would come in this month.

So for November, I earned $1,444 making it my best month of the year and bringing my 6 month average to $992.67. That brings my total YTD to $8,996. My goal for the entire year was $8,000 so I'm already about $1,000 beyond that and still have one month left to go. Sometimes it is tough to keep up with all of the surveys but seeing these numbers really helps keep me motivated.

    Excellent!! Glad you were able to meet your goal. Will you make it the same or higher for next year?

    ccf - I'll definitely set a higher goal. The $8,000 was an adjusted goal after my wife stopped working and I raised my target. I'm going to stick with the $800/month goal so that will make my 2014 goal $9,600. I know that this month's $1,400 was kind of a fluke. I did one study for $425 but that's exceedingly rare. I don't anticipate repeating that anytime soon.
