I’ve always had a long-standing belief that since I’m in the business of helping people get started with their own businesses, I have a responsibility to be transparent about what life is REALLY like on this side.

Sure, there ARE glamorous perks.

But there’s real sh*t happening too. I hope you’ve seen that over the last 12 months.

With that said, stay tuned until the end of this post… where I have a special announcement to share with you. 🙂

November 2018 income report: $25,534.18

November 2018 income report: $25,534.18

When I look back on my activities over November, I see one big focus that was for the business and two smaller focuses that were for me personally (but probably have ripple effects over to the business, too).

If you follow my Instagram Stories, you might have a good idea what my focuses in November were. 😁

Well…

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer.

Here’s where my head was at over the month of November:

BIG BUSINESS FOCUS #1:

Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, plus the *last chance* push to enroll in InstaGrowth Boss before the price goes up this month (If You're Reading This It's Too Late™ - Drake.)

SMALLER PERSONAL FOCUS #2 + #3:

Attending a personal development retreat just outside of Toronto, hosted by The June Motel and Ingo Rauth, as well as a coaching training called Coactive.

If you’re all caught up on my September income report, you’ll know that I adopted a “less is more” attitude, which carried over into the month of October. 🎃

I promised myself to NOT create any new projects, commitments or agreements… but to simply carry out what was already in motion.

I also promised myself to take a few steps AWAY from my business… to do something radically different in order to give myself some mental white space.

After spending the month of October in a more ~relaxed~ mode, I’m pleasantly surprised to see the numbers in my business are actually higher than usual.

September 2018 income report: $25,427.98

Ahhh September.

The perfect time to harness the “back to school” energy of the fall season and do lots of big things.

Right?

That was my thinking back in August, anyway.

So September was a bit of an ambitious month, including:

  • Travel to LA and Vancouver for a few days of filming (more on that to come soon!)

  • Hosting two live masterclasses

  • Travel to Holland for a week

  • Launching the Bali retreat

  • Prepping to travel to Connecticut for a week in early October

August 2018 income report: $32,100.79

August 2018 income report: $32,100.79

I made some tough calls back in July... and I'm happy to see the decisions I made resulted in a healthy month of business revenue, profit – and a raise to myself!

This month was healthy for a few reasons:

  • As mentioned in my July report, the results of a promotion I ran in July are now reflected in my August numbers

  • I made a concerted effort to cut back on some expenses in order to improve my profit margins, which included cutting back on the number of contractors I have on my team

  • I gained a better return on my Facebook ad spend

With that in mind, here’s how August went for me – revenue, expense and profit-wise. 

July 2018 income report: $25,292.10

July 2018 income report: $25,292.10

July is the seventh month of the year. 

That means this is my seventh income report of 2018.

Most headlines... I try to get creative with a theme that happened in the month.

This time? I'm going with the straight-up revenue number in the headline. 

What do we think about this new format? 😬

Lazy on my part? Perhaps. Getting right to the point? Perhaps that too.

If you've read my income reports before, you'll know to me, the total revenue number actually ISN'T the point.

The revenue number is the sexy, flashy number that most online marketers use to sell their goods.

But me? I'm interested in what's left AFTER you've spent $12,000 on Facebook ads.

June 2018 income report: the Lisbon retreat is here!

June 2018 income report: the Lisbon retreat is here!

Ahhh where did June and July go!

In short: TRAVEL.

Lots of it.

  • Lisbon, Portugal

  • Riomaggiore, Italy

  • Oranjestad, Aruba

  • Vancouver, Canada

Some of it was business and some of it was personal.

My fave? Gotta be the retreat I held in Lisbon.

You can see highlights of the Lisbon trip below. ⤵️

May 2018 income report: simma down now...

May 2018 income report: simma down now...

Last month's report included a whopping headline, record-breaking numbers and a whole lotta money paid to Facebook Ads. 💸

This month can be summarized as more of a... transitional reality check.

Transitional = I added two new people to my team (service providers).

Reality check = $50K months are not the norm around here... YET.

We still have a few more bumps to overcome.

So what happened in May?
