6 Things Nobody Tells You About Making Money Online

Written by , Posted in Business

In no small way, the 1990s explosion that’s the internet has been a global game changer. Think e-commerce, government e-services, and all the other convenient services that you can access via the web.  Just like electricity and the telephone, the internet has joined the list of technological innovations that immeasurably changed the world.

If you’re looking to make money online, the internet provides a level playing field. Personally, I make a significant income online each month. I know people who’re making 6 figures just sitting by their computer and running a blog. It’s definitely within your means too, but not as easy as you might have been led to believe. Today I’ll tell you 6 things nobody’s probably told you about making money on the internet.

Online Income: $9,882 in January 2017 + How I Make Money With Advertising

Written by , Posted in Business

Last month I earned almost $10K with my blog and online business. Here's how.After a couple of huge income months, January is down a little bit in terms of my earnings. I’m not disappointed though. I still ALMOST reached $10K. $9,882 is still nothing to sneeze at. Plus, I knew when I had my first five-figure month in November that there would still be months in the future when I wouldn’t hit that mark. Fluctuating income is just part of the joys of running your own business. 🙂

In the past few months, I’ve been trying to diversify more of my income by trying to earn more from my websites themselves, coaching sessions, and I even have plans to launch my first course later this year.

One of the ways I’ve earned more money in the past few months is with advertising. At the end of this post, I’m going to explain how I make money with advertising. But first, here’s a breakdown of my business income and expenses for January 2017.

Online Income: $11,045 in December 2016 + My Total 2016 Earnings and Reflections

Written by , Posted in Business

Wow! This blogger is sharing how she earned over $11,000 with her blogging business in only one month.Wow! 2016 was a great year for my business. Last month I earned 5 figures in one month for the first time. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to keep it up, but I did it again in December.

Is it just me? The first time I hit a new income level with my business it always feels like a fluke. So, I’m pleasantly surprised when it happened again.

That said, there might still be months when I don’t earn 5 figures, and I’m ok with that. In fact, this month I wouldn’t have made 5 figures if it weren’t for some bonuses from my amazing clients!

I know that as my business changes directions from time to time, I may still see ups and downs in my income level. Ahh, the joys of self-employment. The whole thing is pretty much an experiment to see what works and what doesn’t. 🙂

Here’s a breakdown of how I earned money and spent money with my business in December.

Go from Solopreneur to Small Biz By Hiring Your First Team Member

Written by , Posted in Business

Are you ready to go from solopreneur to small business? Here are some helpful tips for hiring your first team member.When I first started offering freelance writing and VA services, I never saw myself as anything more than a side hustler. I thought I’d write a few extra blog posts and help with social media on the side of my career to earn extra money.

But a few months later I had a life-changing conversation with Cat Alford. She simply asked me what my goals were for my business.

I had never thought of my side hustle as a business before that moment.

After that conversation is when I decided I wanted to quit my job to be self-employed.

As soon as I started viewing my work as something that had the potential to replace, or even out-pace, the income from my day job, I began to see tremendous growth. I took on several new clients in the span of only a month or two and began working nearly every moment that I could. Just 12 short months after I started working with my first client as a side-hustler, I became a full-blown solopreneur.

But, the hustle doesn’t stop there. Although I had fully replaced the income from my day job, I knew I wanted to earn more so I could live more comfortably and pursue my financial goals. Since I was just one person, there was only so much work I could handle. This is when I started outsourcing.
