This January 2017 Income Report is my first income report for the blog. I should note that this is all the income I earned in January, I may not have actually received payment for it in January. This also does not factor in expenses and taxes.
Total January 2017 Income = $2,262
Freelance Writing: $2,152.20
Affiliate Marketing: $27.06
Lyft Driving: $72. 24
How I Earn My Income
I primarily earn money through freelance writing, affiliate marketing, driving for Lyft, and a few other hustles here and there.
If you want to get started freelance writing, I highly recommend Gina Horkey’s 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success. I helped me go from novice to full-time freelance writer. I’m still working to build my affiliate marketing income, but I do only share tools and resource I have used myself and find helpful.
If you want to get started with affiliate marketing, I’d recommend Michelle of Making Sense of Cent’s Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Course. Wanting to get started on Lyft? You can read my post on becoming a Lyft driver.
Income Goal Progress
I have set an income goal for 2017 of $80,000. $2,262 of $80,000 = 2.8% to goal
I kicked off January sick as a dog, so I’m proud I still managed to earn over $2k in my first full month of self-employment and tell you about it in my January 2017 Income Report. How do you think I did? How did your January go?
