January Blog Stats
Total Revenue: $311.81. Even though my revenue decreased from December, I am totally pumped! I only published four posts this month and I definitely spent less time on the blog than I had planned. Nonetheless, $311.81 isn’t too shabby!
FlexOffers: $140. FlexOffers is an affiliate program aggregator. If you own a website or blog, I highly recommend checking them out. I use their platform to promote products or services that I truly believe in. One example is Personal Capital.
Personal Capital is a FREE online tool to help track your spending and net worth. If you’re not already using this awesome software, click here to get started!
Siteground: $50. This is the best domain hosting company I have done business with. I typically buy my domains through Namecheap and then host them on SiteGround. The process is simple and SiteGround provides great website speed and customer support. They offer hosting packages from as low as $3.95 per month.
If you’re unsure about how to set up your website, check out this step-by-step guide to building your online business.
Credit Land is a credit card review website. They analyze new credit card bonuses and special offers every month. This site is a great resource for anyone interested in travel rewards. You can apply for your next travel rewards card now to support this blog!
*PLEASE READ CREDIT CARD BASICS BEFORE APPLYING FOR YOUR NEXT CREDIT CARD*
Share-A-Sale: $1.81. This is another affiliate program aggregator. There are thousands of different products and services on this platform to promote. The interface is user-friendly and super easy to navigate.
One of the services I promote through this platform is Namecheap, my domain provider. Check it out for yourself and find your favorite companies on Share-A-Sale to promote!
Total Expenses: $0. This may seem awesome, but I’m kind of disappointed in myself for not running some Facebook Ads this month. It’s just been so incredibly busy! … more on that later.
January 2019 – Life, Media, and Blog Strategy Updates
January was a HUGE month for me in terms of life events. I honestly think this will be one of the most pivotal months in my life’s journey… I’ll stop leaving you hanging though.
I QUIT MY JOB!
It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. For those of you who have followed my story for a while, you knew that this day was coming. I had teased the idea several times, and on January 14th, I finally put in my two weeks notice. My final day of work was January 31st!
During the month of February, most of my time will be spent helping Grant Sabatier with the launch of his new book, Financial Freedom. I’ll also focus on scaling up the blog, podcast, and my other side hustles.
My goal is to not dip into my savings whatsoever and to support the cost of my lifestyle through my entrepreneurial ventures. If you want to help me out, one of the easiest ways is to bookmark this Amazon link to do your normal shopping. There’s no additional cost to you and I’ll earn a bit of commission whenever a purchase is made. Appreciate you all!
Side Hustle Course
I’m super excited to share my newest project with you. Over the past month, I’ve been working hard with J from Millennial Boss on a side hustle course. I don’t want to give too much away, but we are pouring countless hours into this project. At our current pace, we will launch it in a couple of months from now! Stay tuned.
Last month I added money coaching page to my site to expand my client base and help even more people accelerate their path to financial independence. I was also fortunate to be added to the Fiology.com’s list of Financial Independence Coaches. This side hustle is just so rewarding and I can’t wait to help more people trying to gain control of their finances.
If you’re interested or know anyone who needs help earning more, spending less, and investing the rest, have them fill out my money coaching application!
