January 2018 Passive Income Report $278.37
How are you doing on your New Year’s goals? If you did not stick with it, January was a practice run, start again in February 🙂
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
January was an exciting month for the blog for multiple reasons.
First, The bus is coming along great. Check out this preview video I created:
Be sure to follow the bus conversion on my Instagram story.
Second, January was one of the best months yet for organic views and subscribers. I have been focusing on a well-rounded social media presence, which includes having a customized Pin (Pinterest) for each blog post.
One way you can help is, if you find value in the blog, please share a post you like on your social media. Thanks!
The Income Report
Stocks Income - $252
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.
Blog Income - YoungAdultSurvivalGuide.com - $26.37
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:
- Google Adsense - $19.37
- Course – I am still trying to decide on the course I should create. (Maybe a stock investing course)
- Hire Me - College Speaking – $0
- Affiliate Marketing - $6
Cool Stuff for Young Adult Survival Guide
In January I spoke at the local jail again and it went great. They asked me to start coming quarterly and I will even start getting paid to speak there... YAY!!
Also, this article from CitiBank came out that I was in.
Quote of the month:
It’s not money I am after, it’s Freedom
