Denise Marek, an author, TV host and professional speaker, saw the joggling story on CBC News: Sunday and was inspired to donate $20 to me after learning that my total income from the sport was "zero dollars." The income donation was part of a birthday gift from three of Denise's friends, who gave her some cash for her birthday to be used as a "pay-it-forward" gift. I'm honoured to have been chosen as a recipient.
Now that I make more than $0, let's do a rough calculation of how much I make per hour for joggling.
My average hours per week spent joggling, juggling, jogging and bloggling is about 15.
- I've been doing this for almost exactly two years now.
- That makes 104 weeks x 15 hours/week = 1,560 total hours.
- $20 divided by 1,560 hours equals...
- $0.0128 per hour – that's more than a penny!!!
