Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes!

Written by , Posted in Life

My re-brand is almost finished. I can't wait to share the new changes with you and I sincerely hope you'll stick around as I make this transition.If you’re on my email list, or if you read my income report a couple of weeks ago, you probably already know that I’m currently going through a re-brand. I’m so excited because the new site is ALMOST done. And it’s amazing!

I’ve been wanting this change for a while now. I have been feeling like my site no longer fit with my message or where I wanted my message to go.

If you’ve been reading since the very beginning, you know that I started this blog anonymously. I was at rock bottom in my life. My finances were a mess. I wasn’t sleeping through the night. I was trapped in fear.

Blogging pulled me out of all of that. But, I never imagined it would lead me to becoming self employed with the ability to call blogging and writing my full-time job.

Online Income: $9,789 in February 2017 + The EXACT Script I Use to Raise My Rates!

Written by , Posted in Business

Check out how this blogger earned over almost $10,000 online in only one month!February was another great month for my business with earning right under $10K. I knew when I had my first five-figure month in November that not every month would be quite that high. It just depends on how much my clients need, as well as fluctuating income from advertising and working with brands.

To combat the constantly fluctuating income, I’ve been working to price my services into packages. This also helps me charge more for my services and raise my rates. Plus, it gets away from trading time for money and instead puts focus on the actual value of the work I’m doing for my clients.

One of the questions I’m asked most often by freelancers is how you can raise your rates for virtual assistant work or freelance writing. So, at the end of this post, I’m going to share some of my tips and the EXACT script I use to raise my rates with clients.

But first, here’s an in-depth look at my business income and expenses for February 2017.

February 2017 Budget and Debt Results

Written by , Posted in Money & Finances

This blogger shares how she paid off over $1,200 of debt and increased her savings! I can't believe how she did it.Besides sharing my online income reports with you, these are my favorite posts to write each month. I’ve been especially excited lately as I’m getting sooo close to being free from my credit card debt. Once that’s done, I know the ball will be rolling quickly as I pay off my remaining debts (other than my mortgage).

February was a pretty good month, but it did feel a little spendy. I’ve been working on prioritizing my health and self care lately and I have been spending a little money along the way.

Last fall I hired a personal trainer for $170 per month. I started going to yoga a few weeks ago and I finally bought a nice mat to help with my practice. My grocery bill has increased slightly as I’ve been buying more lean meats, fruits, and vegetables. But like always, I try my best to buy things when they are on sale. 🙂

With that in mind, here’s how I did in February.

10 Things Losing Weight and Paying Off Debt Have in Common

Written by , Posted in Life, Money & Finances

Losing weight and paying off debt are hard things to do. I love how this blogger broke it down to show all the things they have in common.I’m back on the wagon again.

Since January 18th, I’ve been working hard to improve my health. My friend A and I have been tracking all of our food with the My Fitness Pal app, plus I’ve been drinking around 120 ounces of water each day. I’ve also been going to workout with my personal trainer three times each week with no excuses. A and I have also been walking almost every evening for about 30-40 minutes (sometimes more).

And it’s paying off! In five-ish weeks, I’ve lost about 11 pounds so far. I’ve also realized lately that my journey to losing weight and becoming healthy actually has a lot in common with my goal to get out of debt.

Here are 10 things losing weight and paying off debt have in common.
