Smutlancer Monthly Income Report: July 2019

The summer has been a time of unplanned rest (but much needed) and navigating new financial realities in my personal life (like insurance premiums that doubled and rent that’s 50% higher than a mortgage). Business has picked up in the last few weeks — from existing and new clients — so I’ll be curious to see what happens in the fall. For now, here’s what July’s income looked like.
