I made 3 Figures this month! Yippee!
Wow! What a month it has been!
I started it out not knowing how much I was going to make, if anything, but working even harder than last month. In october, I got my first sale that paid me a commission of $47 after which, I went WILD on content!
I knew that if I made one sale, I could make 10, I could make 100, I could even make a 1000! What I didn't know was that I was going to hit 3 figures!
I made $223.86!!!

December 2018 will mark a year since I joined Wealthy Affiliate and I would have wanted to reach my goals faster for sure, but I didn't work as much during the first 9 months on my website as I should have.
I only published 10 - 12 posts a month, which is not enough in the make-money-online niche. i only realised this in mid-september and made changes to my schedule to be able to post every day.
I'm really glad I made these changes and worked harder because this resulted in me making more money than October and I'm really looking forward to how much this is going to change in the right direction for the coming year.
Message To Newbies And My New Referrals
I started making money on the 10-month mark, which is very slow and not typical. I'm sure I would have given up if I wasn't so desperate to change my life around.
Many people achieve results faster in a different niche and by posting more regularly. Just remember that if you give up, then you won't know just how much you would have been able to achieve.
Give yourself one year, as this is what it usually takes for a business to become profitable. Work on it! Don't let the time pass you by! Learn from my mistake and get those posts out there!
If I had worked hard enough and had 143 posts by the 6-month mark (an average of 23 posts a month) I would have probably started making $500 - $800 every single month right now.
But what's past is past. I now know what I gotta do and although I'm a little late (in my own eyes), I know now that I have to make OTHER things revolve around my business until I start earning a regular income from it.
Don't make the mistake of making your business revolve around the other things in your life else you're not going to make the progress that you want. I know you have kids and you have your day job probably, but after them, make your business the next priority.
When it's time to work, tell the kids so. Time yourself and work maybe 2 - 3 hours a day, even if scattered across the day. Instead of watching movies on Netflix or browsing through your feeds on social media (which are really not going to bring you anywhere in life), WORK ON YOUR WEBSITE!
That's the ONLY way to move things along. If I had quit and told myself that this does not work for me instead of working harder, I would not have been able to see my 3-Figure month. There were so many times that I wanted to guit and so many hardships that I faced but I'm here today because I kept going.
I just wanted to share with you my realizations and results with you so that you don't make the same mistakes that I did and so that you can make your new year here as successful as can be.
