My online income report for September - how did I do this month, and am I on track for my goals? via @shoeaholicnomore

September was the best month ever, and not just in terms of how much income I made from my business.

I went on an amazing trip in the middle of the month and came back exhausted, and yet refreshed and excited at the same time. Is that even possible? I’m not sure, but that’s definitely how FinCon left me feeling.

It invigorated my business and my brain. I’ve got lots of new ideas for my business and even some things that I think will help my current clients too.

I also had so much fun meeting everyone in person!

I think FinCon came at the perfect time for me and my business.

And the proof is in the pudding, aka my September income.

My online income for September 2015: $3,372.10

Here is a breakdown of how I earned my money:

VA/Blog Management Services – $2,058.25

Writing – $1,103.85

Advertising on both my sites – $210.00

September was my highest income month yet, even with taking almost a week off to attend FinCon! Plus I’m officially to the point where I’ve earned more than my day job, even after taxes and expenses are taken into account on this figure. Woot!

I also beat my September income goal which was $2,500!

September did see some changes in my client list. I lost two clients and while I am a little bummed about it, I gained some awesome clients too. So there’s that. 🙂

As always, you need to know that I don’t count my online income until the month it gets deposited into my account, so this is from some work at the end of August through about mid-September. I have made some more since then, but it will be included on my next report since it didn’t hit my account until October 1st (or later).

Remember, that my online income has not yet been taxed, which means that about 30% of what I make is going to be taken by Uncle Sam, and another portion of my income will be used for expenses, like internet, computer repairs, tech services, my staff writer, and PayPal fees. Additionally, I’m saving some of my income to be used for FINCON16 and other business expansion projects in the future.

I’m going to set my October income goal at $3,000. This will be my highest income goal yet.

Here are my other online income reports to-date:

August 2015 – $2,357

July 2015 – $2,502.60 – Last month as a side hustle!

June 2015 – $2,130.25

May 2015 – $1,873.40

April 2015 – $1,691.51

March 2015 – $2,131

February 2015 – $1,534

October 2014 – $1,080

September 2014 – $581

For kicks and giggles I decided to average my monthly online income for the 15 months I’ve been freelancing. Even with the smaller months at the very beginning, my average monthly online income (gross) is $1,511.36. My 12 month (gross) average is $1,793.70.
