Kathryn is on a quest to earn $47 a day

Launched in 2018, Quest for $47 is a chronicle of my journey toward earning $47 a day in passive income, so I can pay my rent without dipping into my day job salary. Check out my Introduction for more on why I’m doing what I’m doing, and how you can join in too!

A life-long college sports fan and someone who is FOREVER bitter about the country’s east coast bias, my name is Kathryn and I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2012 with a BA in Creative Writing, emphasis in poetry because the fiction studies emphasis was too pretentious for me to handle.


Since I was forced to choose a minor, I got mine in Japanese Culture Studies because A) I was halfway through the minor by the time I met with my academic advisor about it and B) because the culture option doesn’t require the language classes, and Japanese 101 is notoriously one of the most difficult classes on the entire campus.

After graduation, I accidentally exiled myself to Alabama in pursuit of a career in athletic media relations. I learned a lot, ate a lot more (they shred cheddar cheese on EVERYTHING), watched a LOT of quality college softball, and met some of the greatest people I will ever know.

I moved back to Arizona in 2013, started working for Arizona State University in its athletic department (yes, my college’s rival, I know, I’ve heard that one once or twice), got my own place, and adopted a cranky old cat named Maggie, aka the four-legged roommate who really ran my  household. Maggie has since moved on to hang out with the pets of family’s past, and now I have Bishop, my chatty, comic-book character-inspired roomie who loves to play fetch even though she is certainly…not a dog.

So these days, I spend my time generating passive income and all the ways in which you can generate income while not lifting a finger, and that’s where Quest for $47 comes in. For a little more about what this is all about and why I’m doing what I’m doing (see: generating $47 a day in passive income, every day), check out my Introduction.

I also squeeze in time to work my full-time day job as an office manager, write novels (including what I call the #WhoIsTalyaNightingale novel, which I am trying to get published traditionally), think about writing my novels, and sometimes sleeping.

Some Random Facts About Me:

  • When I text, I send ALL my emojis in groups of three
  • Once, my best friend and I tried to dye my hair purple. It actually ended up making my hair redder than it already was. And my hair is not naturally red in any way, shape, or form.
  • I have a very distinct gait–people can tell I’m coming from around a corner without actually seeing me.
  • My favorite freeway in Arizona is the southbound Route 51.
  • My favorite four-letter word starts with the letter ‘F’. Yeah, that one.
  • I have a running lists of songs that I can NOT listen to. One is from the Lion King Original Broadway Soundtrack, the other is a song by Brittney Spears.
