I can see now how everything I have done over the last year is blossoming.

It has not been easy managing my 3 websites and there have been times when I just wanted to cry with frustration.. oh wait I didn't just want to cry, I have cried! Buckets of tears on many occasions.

I am not a millionaire, not by a long shot. BUT I am seeing sales coming in little bit by little bit all over.

I am making money from:

  • Numerous affiliate programs (Amazon, WA, Jaaxy, Mass Planner, Clixsense... and many others)
  • Google Adsense
  • Youtube videos
  • Mommy Blog reviews and advertising
  • Part time online moderator work at an SEO Marketplace (yes because of the skills I learned here)

Through these multiple streams of income I am making a nice amount of money online. I am not rich, but I am not counting my coppers half way through the month wondering how I will make the last few bucks stretch for another 2 weeks.

I am working less hours than I ever have in my life and making more money than I have ever made in my life.

I am a happier person and I am a better wife and mother for it.

I wrote a post here quite a while back about what Financial Success means to me.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/lynnehuy/blog/what...

It is not all about money. It is about not having to stress all the time, having enough money to make it through to the end of the month and most importantly, it is about having the time and the freedom to enjoy that money. To spoil my kids and my husband.

Read that post I wrote about Financial Freedom, most of that has come about and I only wrote that in January this year! YAY!

My next goal: Make enough money online and have a very stable income so my husband can quit his (can I swear here?? nope this potty mouth mommy has tried it already) sh****y job!

He works long hours, in a job he hates. He usually leaves before the kids and I wake up and drives in the freezing cold and dark far away to a town 40kms away... he gets home often after supper, occasionally after the kids are in bed so they don't even get to see him.

It just makes me sad now that the kids and I are having such fun... while we are at home baking cupcakes or building sandcastles at the beach in the afternoons he is unhappily grafting away.

If you follow my goals you will see that so far I have gotten what I work for and this is something I want so badly it hurts.

Brilliant Lynne - I've watched your progress from when I first joined sometime after you and I remember the struggle and frustration you felt and expressed on multiple occasions - so to see that all your hard work is beginning to pay off and that you don't have to worry about counting the pennies anymore, (yes, I know all about counting pennies too in our house) is great to hear! :)

LynneHuy Premium
Thanks Neh :) You are right, there have been loads of frustrations.... and they make every success all the sweeter.

Imagine everything was just easy... how on earth would we truly appreciate it?

I hope you have a few pennies coming in from your online business by now?

Exactly, the hard work certainly makes it better! I put most of my sites on hold apart from my WA one, which I've concentrated on since JAN this year. Just started to see some sales in the last month and a half, things gradually improving! So, have to be patient :-o ...

YAY that is great! Keep it u. I also find juggling more than one website tough. My addiction one I haven't added any new content for months... oh well....

Thank you, I find it hard to write on my other sites too. My main second one hasn't been updated in over a month oops. Once I'm in a reasonable position with it, I'll probably look at things again and maybe start up a second site that is completely different. I've also thought of freelancing - but I just have to sort it out really! Plus make time!! eeeep!

Hey Lynne. Great post, just the kind of inspirational words and positive outcomes I (and all of us at WA) need to hear! And in the meantime, until you reach the rest of your goals, don't worry about your husband. I was in his position once too, but my main concern was not the long hours or boring commutes, it was hoping that my wife and kids were enjoying the time they had together and happy for them that at least they didn't have to survive on just bread and butter "sandwiches". If you guys are happy, he will be happy too! Of course, that doesn't mean he won't want to join you - ASAP. So get back to work, and let us know when your husband can walk into his bosses office and say "With all due respect, I quit this SH***ty job :) Thanks Lynne

"I can see now how everything I have done over the last year is blossoming." - this paraphrases the advice you've given me before.

I'm really happy for you, big sis Lynne. From your WA blogs, website posts, Social Media posts etc etc etc, I can see how much effort (sweat & tears) you've gone through to create the life that you want. And my, how far you have come!

Through out all this, you still make time to help people, like us on WA... I'm definitely grateful for all your advice and encouragement you've given!

You're an inspiration to me. I look up to you and wish you all the best.

I hope to see similar results as you with the path that I create for myself :)

(Confession: I think the time I felt "closer" to you was when I viewed your YouTube video, where you were talking to the camera - forgot which one exactly. I could hear your voice and see you speak, that made me feel like I know you! And through that video, I realised the power of video... wow)

Hi Pam

Thanks, yes it has been such an amazing journey and of course I still have a long way to go but I am so excited to see where it takes me.

Yes you must get into video, it makes such a difference to everything you do online! I am so glad you enjoyed my videos :)

Yes you will succeed and you will find financial freedom and happiness... just keep working for it.

I am finding I have less and less time, probably because I am working less and playing more hahaha but I am always here daily, so you can check in with me anytime still.

Just want to say a BIG thanks for this post and the post within this post. I am so happy that you have been able to focus on your goals and not lose sight of your objectives.

What you have been able to accomplish is nothing short of amazing and is/should be an inspiration to all your followers as to what can be accomplished here at WA if we are just willing to put in the effort.

I, myself, have struggled with the commitment and effort side of this equation, With a bunch of procrastination thrown in as well.

I have an OK, (some say great looking), website, (if you feel so inclined, I'm always looking for feedback), but I lack the traffic and I haven't made a cent so far. But, that's my own fault and the only one that can fix that is me.

I guess I "understood" that when I first got involved with WA, well, I suppose I have "understood" that for most of my life. I even remember someone saying, many years ago, "If it is to be, it's up to me", at an Amway seminar in another lifetime. My brain understood it then but, for most of my life, there has been a disconnect between the brain and the heart.

Your post(s) have helped me make that connection. They have helped me realize that "IT" can be done and that I can do it too but only if I am willing to do what others are doing to GET IT DONE!

In short, today you have inspired me, you have encouraged me and you, in a way, have challenged me. It's time. Thank You, and I look forward to hearing about your husband's early retirement and YOUR success.

OMG Amway... Scamway ahahaa. I was there briefly once, it was my first introduction to MLM and thankfully the last. If anyone says MLM I start running. I don't need to hear any more lol.

Oh and hubby won't be retiring, he will be a stay at home dad... and he will then sh*t himself and know what real hard work is! It is going to be my revenge... best dished out when someone least expects it. *evil laugh*

I wasn't in it for very long and did know some people who were very successful at it. That said. It wasn't for me but they did sell a great hand cleaner.

Glad I didn't say MLM and promise me you won't be tooooo hard on your husband. :)

Yes and when that day comes I will share it with everyone. You know when I first started he laughed about my first few earnings because of the amount of time it took me to make my first sales.

I think it took something like 6 months to make a few dollars LOL. Anyway I am earning more than him now and working 3-4 hours a day so he is now choking on those giggles he had.. heehee

Hello Lynne, nice blog post. You are such a breath of fresh air in affiliate marketing. I am so pleased that I am privileged to meet people with values such as yourself and also all the other people on WA with the right agenda - to make money from home, enjoy our families and friends and leave the stress of the rat race behind us.

Keep up the awesome work, you inspire me to keep pushing.

God bless,

A woman showing care and compassion for her husband. This makes you a rare woman when I compare you to the women in my region.

Most women here want their husbands to overwork themselves giving not a care in a world how much stress it causes the husband or hubby as some call them as long as the cash flow is keeping the family unit floating above water.

These women tend to use a code word like a workhorse to explain their husbands. Worst of all these women actually leave their children in daycare while they go shopping or out for social events and they don't even work.

I admire your commitment to your online ventures and your family unit, I just wish the women here were more like you.

Thanks for sharing.

Sam.

Oh no that is awful! A workhorse? nasty!
My hubby is missing the best years with the kids and I so wish he was here to see it all. He is so tired when he is home that he needs rest not kids climbing all over him, but he always puts them first. He is an amazing daddy to our kids.

I can't imagine just dumping my kids in day care and going out shopping all day. When I am on my deathbed I want to be able to look back on my life and have very little regrets. I want to have memories of my family to look back on, not shopping trips... how boring! That can't be very fulfilling can it?

They were great, so we had to go twice last week hahaha.

And tomorrow my kids are not going to day care, they are having some friends over for the day... friends whose parents work full time. So on the agenda is
1) Big fry up breakfast
2) Walk on the beach and making sandcastles
3) Baking cupcakes
4) It will be raining in the afternoon, so a movie with blankets, an indoor fire to keep us warm and some popcorn and hot chocolate. Oh and of course eating the cupcakes...

Then on Friday we are going to do a roadtrip... to visit my parents at their farm. They are a 5 hour drive away so we are going to make some cool stops on the way..... unfortunately my hubby can't get any time off to come with us :(

So that is so different to the way our life was.. oh and I'll bring my laptop to work while the kids are out and about mucking around with my parents.

Financial Freedom Rocks!
