This is my July 2017 Income Report. I should note that this is all the income I earned in July, I may not have actually received payment for it in July. This also does not factor in expenses and taxes.

Total July 2017 Income = $​2,440.22

Freelance Writing = $550.00

Personally, I found the course, 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success extremely helpful to get me started with Freelance Writing. It breaks everything you need to do, step by step so that by the time you get to pitching for jobs you are prepared and successful. For me, the course paid for itself when I got my first freelance writing job. I now earn between $2,000-$4,000 per month (check out my other income reports) with freelance writing.

Affiliate Marketing = $​83.60

I took the course Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing by Michelle who is an affiliate marketing maven. She regularly makes over $50k a month from affiliate marketing. I bought her course at the end of Nov. 2016 and mid-December 2016 while I'm still working to implement everything I've learned, I've already seen an increase in my affiliate marketing income. She really knows what she is talking about and the Facebook community that accompanies the course is a terrific resource. Learn more about Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.

Lyft Driving =$0.00

Driving with Lyft is a great way to earn some extra cash. I love how easy it is to just turn on an app when I feel like driving and make some money. I wrote an entire post about driving for Lyft. It includes what you can expect during the application process, what it's like to actually drive and the many perks of driving with Lyft.  Get started driving for Lyft.

Ads = $18.62

Other = $1,788

I picked up a temporary project, which is where this income is from.​

Total Income = $​2,440.22

Difference between July & Previous Month = +$123.22

I love Michelle’s course! It’s so helpful and I definitely learned what mistakes I made in the past with my very first blog. I’m currently building up traffic on my blog and her recommendations really help.

Thanks for sharing your income report! I love reading these type of reports. I find it so motivation. Keep it up!

Congrats on a good month. I’ve slacked big time with my freelance writing the last couple of months. I need to actively look for clients again.

    Thanks! Honestly, I’m in the same boat. Most of my income from last month and likely this month is coming from non-freelance work that is temporary.
