3800 EUR in July, 1348 EUR this week !

Last Update: August 11, 2017

Hey guys!

First of all, I'd like to say that I've missed spending time at WA, blogging, helping others and talking to you all...

It's been almost a year since I last blogged on here and it was to let go of my Ambassador rank and get serious with my makeup youtube channel and new website ! (Best decision ever, after joining WA of course!)

What a year, people ! What a year.... ! It's been one of the thoughest year in my life... on so many levels ! Getting out of my comfort zone, feeling insecure about my makeup skills, having heart issues for months and living in fear, being so stressed by my heart that my stomach would burn all the time, working so much you get lonely at times...

BUT, on the bright side of things all these trials have given me the opportunity to overcome my worst fears, to stop being stressed ('cause the body really doesn't like it and it will find very creative ways of telling you ! lol Mostly painful ways.)

And most of all, these last months have rewarded me with financial success. I mean, boy... after 2 and a half years of learning and working relentlessly online I just earned my first real income !!!!!!!

(By the way, my heart is ok. I just need to R E L A X, the cardiologist said. Meh.)

I have dreamed about writing this post for years... This is indeed my first significant "success story" =) Sure, I've made money since I joined WA in 2015 but I hadn't achieved my initial goal yet (which was 2500 a month if I remember correctly) and my earnings haven't been steady.

However I have seen a huge increase in my income last month, with a total of 3800€ earned... and this week... (still can't believe it), I made 1348€.

I never thought, in my whole life I could make that kind of money. In a week. Actually, 5 days. O.O

So with this post I really don't want to brag but on the contrary I would like to give hope to those of you who are struggling or aren't sure that WA is the real deal or simply are doubting themselves. I know how important and motivating success stories can be to some of us. I know they were to me.

If I had given up last year (or each and every time I wanted to give up) ... guess what would have happened? Or not happened as a matter of fact lol. Yeah, I don't think I even need to elaborate.

So my friends, don't give up on your dreams. Work hard. Believe in yourself. And it WILL pay off !

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day !

Cheers =)

Sarah

Thanks Dave! Yeah, it is so so so hard for me to log in on here and catch up with all my messages... I have so many I just feel discouraged every time I check my notifications. And I keep postponing but then of course I end up with a zillion more messages lol... I'm trying to get back to people today because I feel too guilty ahah
Things are really going well, I'm extremely busy but loving what I do so... I can't complain!!
Thanks for saying hi
Have a lovely day and may 2018 bring you much love, joy, health and success

So how are you making this money, how are you getting the traffic? These are things many of us need to know so we can keep paying our membership fees here. can you share how you are making this money?

Thanks

I'm making money from sales (mostly amazon) and other affiliate partners, from my websites, from adsense (very little though), from my youtube channel, from local clients (building websites for companies here, creating logos and stuff like that) and I also earn money as a forex trader but that's got nothing to do with websites or online marketing, it's just something I started working on a couple years ago. Everything I learned, I learned it here... I just followed the lessons, did all the tasks and repeated again and again
My traffic is mostly organic now, I don't post too much on social platforms, except for my youtube channel, which is still new and slowly growing.
I've never done PPC, probably will but i haven't had time to learn tthat yet

SO is Forex something you would recommend getting into? I am constantly getting emails about it...

Are you an Amazon Affiliate or are you drop shipping on Amazon?
Reply
BelieveItYes Premium
I would not recommend forex to anyone because it is very risky and stressful. Unless you follow a very serious training and are ready to wait years before you can start earning... i would not recommend forex. But if someone really wanted to learn to trade I would tell them it's possible to earn, yes. It just takes long hours of learning, long years of experience and failing lol... I would tell them also to never try binary options, which are the best way to lose their money. Forex is "easier", less risky because you can set a stop loss and take profit and minimize your risks but it's not for the faint of heart or simply not for people who can't spend hours looking at charts and reading economic news

I'm an amazon affiliate, among many others

OMG what an inspiration you are!! And your last blog was a year ago about giving up ambassador status to get serious on your website and income! And here you are back in with a huge haul of dollars!! Well there's been a lot of complaints about the whole ambassador system, you've just proved the sad reality about that yet you are inspirational as to the real reasons we came here and getting back to reality! Now you are in a great position to teach and be a true ambassador.

Hawthorn works great for the heart, and cayenne for getting oxygen there, stress is serious whatever your cardiologist says, your stress levels and heart needs some tlc.

Big congrats, and thanks for posting this!

Hi Sarah,
Good to hear from you. Even better to hear that things are going in the right direction for you. I love this story here and hearing about your success. It is truly inspiring.
What you have done is what we all wish for. You paid the price.
That's awesome.
Stress, yes it can be a killer. I am recently asking myself what direction to take to avoid the massive stress I have at work. I have the answer now. BUILD THIS BUSINESS!!! Yes its hard and there are frustrations, long nights, etc. I'd rather do that full time than what I do now working for someone else.

Thanks again for sharing your story. I'm happy to here that your DR said " just need to Relax" Meh!!!

Love it!

Thanks! Best wishes for your continued SUCCESS!!!

Interesting. Are you using PPC marketing or is all your traffic organic?

I use both but I've noticed over the years how much power PPC offers when you back your content with an investment.

Hey Sam ! I haven't used PPC yet lol... although I KNOW (and it was one of my 2017 goals... oops) to start learning PPC and using it. Now I have a bit more financial means I think I won't be so reluctant about using it lol...

Well done Sarah,

I can remember your decision a year ago to take a step back and to concentrate more on your business. One person can only do so much before burning out.

I am so glad that it has worked out for you and that you have reached (and beaten) your goal!

Great inspiration x
