December 2017 Passive Income Report $282.88
Happy New Year! Let’s Crush 2018 together. Before I get into the report, passive income is making income without “working” a 9-5. These reports are a great way for me to keep an eye on my progress, and a transparent way for you to follow along as well if you’re thinking about making passive income.
I can’t wait to look back several years from now and see how far I have come. 🙂
On a Personal Level
A new year means new goals right!?! Over the next several weeks I will be putting together a post on my new upcoming 2018 goals.
(Here is the post I did on my previous one year goals)
December was an exciting month for the blog for multiple reasons. First, one of my goals this year was to travel, so I have been planning an epic road trip. I bought a school bus and have been working on the conversion, it is coming along great.
The goal of converting the bus is: first do something awesome and accomplish a bucket list goal. Second, motivate people to take control of their finances so they can create the lives they want to live not the life they have to. I will be doing VLOGS (Video Blogs) of the trips too, so you can follow along!
Be sure to follow the bus conversion on my Instagram story.
The Income Report
Stocks Income - $247.52
I use stash for my long term investing. However, for short term “cash flow” (month to month) I have been using an app called Robinhood because they have no trading fees. **I don’t recommend trying this until you are debt free, at least everything except the mortgage, because you can literally lose all your money if you don’t know what you are doing.
Using the technical analysis I have been working on over the past 12 months I got 8% return on my money this month.
I am thinking about creating a course on my strategy when I get back from my trip.
Blog Income - YoungAdultSurvivalGuide.com - $35.36
In the Step-By –Step Guide I created for you to create a blog, I outline the 4 main ways to make money blogging.
Yes, you can make money blogging. It takes time though, I don’t recommend quitting your job immediately and blogging to make money. However, I do know many bloggers who make $1000-$10,000+ each month online, it just takes time.
Also, it’s not all about making money, I genuinely love you all and want to help you reach your goals, which is my main reason for blogging.
The 4 Main ways to make money are:
1.Google Adsense - $24.36
2.Course – I am still trying to decide on the course I should create. (Maybe a stock investing course)
3.Hire Me : College Speaking – $0
4. Affiliate Marketing - $11
Cool Stuff for YoungAdultSurvivalGuide
In December I released the “Teach Me How to Budget” Remix Haha. You know I am all about the budget so this just seemed natural. My cousin and I recorded the music video in DC, I think it turned out great!
This article from The Penny Hoarder came out too.
I also setup another speaking engagement at my local Jail for January 17th. I went about 5 months ago and it changed my thinking on blogging and adding value. I wrote this post about the experience.
Quote of the month:
Stop being worried about what could go wrong, and start being excited about what could go right
