Forgot to update this back during the Christmas time. I recently decided to actually spend some of this money that I have been accumulating. To start off I got another cheque which added more funds.
So what did I decide to do and buy thus far? Well, just like my original thought about all this I just wanted to do things that interested me and see if naturally you can then generate an income out of it without actually worrying about it too much. I can say that definitely happened here.
Now the other thing that I was always semi interested in trying for fun is that since there is a lot more video publishing platforms nowadays I thought creating videos would be interesting. So with that in mind, I decided to invest a a new production suite with this side income. The main one that came to my mind was the Adobe production suite. As some of you may know, this thing costs a lot of money where as you can see here it costs almost $1700:
While I have enough funds through all this to easily pay for it, using almost 50% of one’s fund didn’t seem too appealing to me. So naturally that got me thinking if I should just settle for a more home user type of software or at worst just use the free software offered in most operating systems. I really didn’t want to do that though as I know from experience in these types of things that the time and features can end up saving me so much time. So instead, I was pretty set into buying that but wanted to find a deal.
Sure enough, I was able to find one as the company itself was having a special discounted offer which apparently they rarely ever do. With this discount, I was able to get the software with tax for $973.78 US.
That sure shows how a little research can save you so much money too huh? Overall, great price I thought and it sets me up for all the tools I need to start something. It kind of fits in good too considering I bought a new DSLR way back as you all remember just for my own personal use. So maybe I can find some good use for it.
The main hurdle with this I think is going to be as always instead of over analyzing in how and what to do in terms of an idea that the important thing is to just do something. Here is the updated numbers as a result of this purchase:
