Discussion on: The $200 Challenge

That's really cool, especially because as a freelance developer I love new challenges and earning money from my skills!

We have a great fortune, we have one of the most dynamic job, we can just add some ads plugin or make little tasks to earn money.

I'd love to follow your example, often I take big jobs, to earn more money and work more time per month, but your idea sounds really good!

What should I do next? Maybe a $500 in 3 days Challenge? ๐Ÿ˜

I think the next step you can reach is to earn 1/4 of your monthly revenue in about 4 days. The reason is pretty simple:

earn a quarter of a regular job salary but save 1 day per week, so 4 days per month, which is a great free time for your personal tasks.

For example, in Italy, you earn like 1200k ~ 1400k per month, so the challenge for me could be to earn like 350โ‚ฌ (without taxes, so they might be around 500 ~ 600โ‚ฌ with taxes) in 4 days!

I've reached (and exceeded by 25% ~ 35% more per week) this personal challenge like 1 year ago, and I challenge you to do the same!

Now I have the time to work and to learn, to focus on my personal tasks and to help my family and friends, or just chill ^^

I wish this idea could inspire you, if not, I've tried :D
