January 2018 Income Report Blog Post Featured Image

Disclaimer: I started blogging seriously in August of 2017. I blogged consistently every week for about 16 weeks before I started making any money from my blog.

This month’s income is all from sponsored blog posts written by other authors whose content I post to my blog. It’s been a major blessing to get this opportunity since I’m kind of taking a step back to get my web design business in order before I take on any more new clients. 

I will be creating monthly income reports to show you it’s possible to make money online. And I’m also tracking my progress to replace my 9-to-5 income and work full-time as a freelancer by June 1st 2018.

Now, let’s see these numbers!

I use Mint to track my income and expenses. This is done by connecting my bank accounts and even PayPal to Mint. This is also how I’m able to quickly see what I’ve made and what I’ve spent on. If you want to be a serious entrepreneur then you’ve definitely have to get in a money management mindset. And every dollar that comes your way is not fun money or always profit!

My plans are to double my business income month after month. So until next time ….
