2016 Goal - Five Figure Income

Last Update: May 20, 2016

The Goal - Make at least $10,000 from my own online work by December from new projects. I will not be including income from freelancing as that still is me technically working for someone else.

So I was just chatting with someone in live chat and was telling her about an epiphany I had while getting ready for work today.

Just the idea of going to work now makes me cringe and makes me almost physically ill. It's not that I don't like my job, because I do, it is one of the reasons I do my online stuff part time but it has gotten to the point where I hate relying on other people for stuff to get done. Some of my coworkers make me want to pull my hair out. It is really frustrating to know that you can be doing 3x as much work as someone and still be getting paid near the same.

That doesn't normally apply online. The harder you work and the more you put into your online endeavors the more you get out of it. Now don't get me wrong, there is a learning curve with lots of improving, trial and error, and sticking with it before seeing results but in the long run it is totally worth it. I just keep thinking "fudge" if I had spent as much time as I spend at my job to my websites I wouldn't have to keep putting up with this BS.

Well I have decided to fix this. I need to start putting the pedal to the metal and kick everything into high gear. I have already started blogging updates about a new site I made and I have now decided to actually blog income updates once a month.

Specifically my goal is to make five figures by the end of the year from brand new projects. This won't include any income I am already making as I know I can scale that up and I want to prove to myself that in 7-8 months from scratch I can really make something happen.

At the moment I am debating between three websites as well as starting some online self publishing. I have already put a few out there but haven't actually put a lot of focus into making that an income. There is a good chance I might build out all three website by the end of the year but will have to wait to see how the summer goes so I don't get completely burned out. One of the three is the one I am currently blogging about that I started a few weeks ago.

This will probably be a monthly update so right now I am saying I am at $0.

Anyone else interested in sharing their goals or working on the same one as me?

Based on my free time and my work schedule - I want to dedicate at least 20 hours a week to working solely on my own business including watching tutorials/training, building, reading, publishing, etc.

Wish me luck

Nice.

$10000, that's my goal! We have the same goals! We could be buds!

im buds with everyone! but lets do it, shoot for the stars

Let's build a big-ass death star! :)

I know this probably not a good way to look at things, but I have stopped setting goals. When I first started 14 months ago I had many goals, none of which happened. Despite me working on my site for about 20 hours a week (some weeks close to 30 hours), I did not meet any goals.

I was starting to get very stressed and was questioning my abilities to the point of just quitting. So now I have no goals. I take things one day at a time. I am in it for the long haul and if I don't give up, one day I will be making the money I want ($3000-$5000 a month).

Ah yes completely understandable but see I have never put 20 hrs a week consistently into my projects. Even if I end up falling short monetary wise I will feel extremely accomplished just knowing I gave it an honest shot by actually devoting free time that I do have on bring productive instead of just thinking about it.

Yes, that is a good point Jean! I have many friends ask me why I am still at it when I am barely bringing in any money. My answer is that I have the time right now. I only work on my site while my kids are in school M-F. But I am also squeezing in appointments and other household errands. They are technically out of the house for 6 hours a day (so that would give me 30 hours a week), but realistically I end up spending 20 hours or so a week on my site.

I feel like I have accomplished a lot. I could have thrown in the towel many months ago and decided to just keep the house clean, but I do enjoy learning new things.

I have told my friends that success isn't always about money, and that luckily I have time on my side so I don't need to be earning a full time income right at this moment.

If in a few years from now I am still not bringing in decent money then I may reconsider things.

Exactly! I mean I make some money so the financial part isnt a huge deal I just wanted to have a substantial goal and I tried to pick soemthing that technically could be done but would also be pushing myself in regards to something new. I will be doing websites and actually book publishing on kindle - one of my new sites will be using what I have learned to help promote my books. So combined I am hoping that it starts to work out.

But as we know the only way to accomplish anything is to get actually do something lol. The only place success comes before work is the dictionary. and I am def. guilty of not giving this my all. So I am using the blogging here to try and serve as an accountability thing so that even if only one person is following I hope to encourage them to also get stuff done while keeping me motivated =).

I applaud you and if you ever need anything please pm me
Jean

Thanks Jean! All I need now is more traffic to my site, but you know that already ;)

duh, woman i have a pm to you saved in my email that i havent sent yet cause i had problems loading WA ROFL. i should sniff that out - i of course meant if you need encouragement feel free to pm. We will get your site into a beautiful money maker! hehehe
Gosh i need to sleep more

Hahaha, no worries!

Carry on building your empire...Rome wasn't built in a day! I completely agree with your wishes...now go out and make them a reality....but remember be good to the people around you because you need them to get there. I really mean that you never know who people are and what they know and who they know.

that's why ive been WA so long, never burn bridges. people know a lot and often know things that i don't . so the networking is fantastic.

Time to get on that horse and ride off into the sunset...LOL!

Keeping all the digits crossed for you :)

i cant cross all my digits so more power to you! LOL though don't forget to keep them crossed for yourself maam =)

Congratulations on making the commitment to work on your business, inspiring and motivating at the same time. Best wishes moving forward, don't know who said it but when we say something and follow through we are half way there. Do keep us up to date Jean.

following through is the hardest part, its so easy to do want something ive learned - so much harder to actually do it

I need to do this timed schedule also. Been here bout as long as you but only receiving minimal results from my DJ site. I need to move my Wealthy Affiliate site howtoomakemoneyonline dot com faster. I seem to do a lot then Stop ! Anyway, pressing on here...............Scotty B ♫

press press press, even small steps will get you somewhere, i know nathaniell just made a post about working on your site at least 10 minutes a day if you can. I am just moving it to 20 hours a week LOL because i know i have the time to do so and im just being lazy by not committing that time to something worthwhile

All the best with your goals.

i appreciate the sentiment =), you as well!

Best wishes in achieving your goals :)

thankie, i mean WA has already done a lot for me but I want to work on building an empire! that sounds crazy but you know what I mean!

All the best ..go for gold ....

thankie vm, that's not gold yet; but im trying to be more consistent. That is why i am not including what I already make. If i can achieve this with something brand new along with the stuff I already have going on then I will feel invincible lol
