I had been hearing on podcasts that Merch by Amazon is a great side hustle but that’s it’s hard to get approved by Amazon and the wait is long. That is why I tested the water on Teespring before jumping into the big leagues of Merch by Amazon with my https://teespring.com/stores/the-ordinary-mom site. After learning how to create on demand print t-shirts on Teespring, I decided I would attempt the big league of Merch by Amazon but I didn’t know how so I once again utilized podcasts for advice.
Tweaking The Ordinary Mom Facebook Page and dipping my toes into the t-shirt business on Teespring
As I described in my last blog, I finally took action on something and started a closed Facebook page in August 2018. (https://thesidehustlejourney.com/2019/04/28/taking-action-by-starting-a-closed-facebook-page/) After purchasing the URL http://www.theordinarymom.com from WordPress and all of the extras I thought I needed in case I created a website, I had spent $98.

Narrowing down my options and getting close to taking action
