Just shy of my all time monthly record for Amazon sales.

Last Update: August 31, 2019

I am very happy to report that I am just $5 shy of my all time record for Amazon sales commissions in a month. I have one day left to break my record which was set in April.

After a slump this summer in June and early July, with very few sales, lower traffic and lower post rankings, things picked back up in late July. First I set a new record for days in a row of sales. Then August started off great as well. Now I am thrilled that August has been my second highest month for sales to date and I have one day left to potentially tie or break that record. All the while I have been busy with work, being very sick and missing days of work, trying to get outside to enjoy a tiny bit of Alaska summer between the high pollen spring, blazing hot summer (over 90 degrees here), record setting extreme drought, massive forest fires (one is over 250 square miles now) and very dense smoke. It has really been hard to get out and do anything this year. We also have 9 rental units to manage with renovations and my husband has been working long hours at his regular job as well!

So, considering all that, I am overjoyed that I am still moving forward with my websites. I have added some great new posts recently and have more on the way.

This shows that WA gives us the tools to build up a viable business even if we have a "Life" and not much free time. How amazing is it to wake up and check your stats and see you made sales overnight!

I always love hearing how your business grows Jessica. You have so much on but you still get things done.

You are an inspiration to many here and ''You Are What Not Giving Up Is All About!''
You always come back on top even after the lulls :)

You are amazing Jessica. That is why I follow you. You teach us all so much. You are super kind to go with it.

Debs :)

Google like you posting new articles each week, I'm not good at that. lol I can start a blog and halfway through I forget what I was going to say. When I come across a great product I want to sell it and want results yesterday. lol..I'm terrible. Then I use all the freebie traffic to make money. Today is Sabbath for me so I'm not doing anything till sundown tonight. Have a nice Sabbath.

Thank you. It is easy to get distracted and not follow through. I don't post as often as I should.

Fingers crossed you break the record, Jessica!

Fires are so bad everywhere now, it seems. Feels like the whole world is burning.

Hope you're feeling better, too.
Best to you,
Stella :-)

How incredibly brilliant, well done, in fact a huge fat we done...I am looking forward to hearing more of your successes. Perhaps now just enjoy the remainder of your summer.

This time last year my partner and had the most amazing 3 week holiday in Alaska, for me one of the most exquisite places on planet earth, the diversity, coupled with the “can do” community spirited nature of the people made it very special. Your post says much about your determination and I think is how you proud Alaskans live your life.....😊

Well done you, you have come a long way since you joined in 2016, I remember your initial follow to me from Alaska.
Hope you're ok up there in the cold.
Not better here in Scotland either.

What cold? It was the hottest summer ever here. It was over 80 degrees F much of the summer here and we had several days over 90 degrees! It is finally cooling down and going into fall...thank goodness. It is also the driest summer ever and we officially hit "extreme drought" which has never occurred before.

Thank you Robert. I am on the slow and steady path for sure but as long as I keep improving I can't complain!
