I haven't done one of these in a minute, I know. To be honest, I let a lot of clients go for a couple of months and had some really low-income dips and didn't want to discourage anyone. It was strictly based off of how much work I wanted to do and was willing to do - not how much money I could make. Please know that as a VA, you can work as much or as little as you'd like. That is YOUR privilege. Pretty cool, huh?
I also got really busy with some new endeavors, so bear with me as these income reports might be inconsistent here and there.
My December income report is reflective of having signed a couple of new clients, but also having lowered the cost for a couple of clients. It balances out, but I'm making less now than I was before because my clients haven't needed as much help as of late.
First, let me talk page views and goals and such.
Monthly Page Views
I had 14,481 page views in the past 30 days. My audience size was almost 6,000 which means people are hanging out on my website long enough to at least browse a couple of pages. I had over 8,000 visits which means some of those audience members were returning members. Yay!
I published quite a few new posts lately. Part of the reason I have been blogging so much is that I've rediscovered my love of it, but part of it is that I'm setting up affiliate programs so that I can hopefully bring in the passive income.
Here are the blog posts I published from the most recent:

I was a busy bee!
2 of my most major goals for 2017 are already being realized and it isn't even January yet!
Publish a Magazine
Some of you probably already know about Shift Society Magazine, the quarterly printed magazine for modern millennial women. I'm so excited for this publication because it's for women, by women. We are opening ourselves up and allowing each other to feel more, see more, and be more. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out here.

This is another thing I've already done! I'm SO loving my rebrand and my new look. If you're digging it too, yay! I crave donuts all day long now since my rebranding includes donuts and hot chocolate...haha
Now for the good stuff.
Income Earned in December
Grand total income: $2,081.64
Grand total outgoing: $900+
I think I grossed about a thousand dollars that promptly all went to bills. :) Oh well! At least we're secure and have a roof over our heads! We're blessed, I know. And I'm blessed to be able to work from home, sure, but I also MADE it happen because I wanted it to.
Working from home is much easier than you think. I have a course coming out in January to help women like you start working from home so that you can do more of what you love. Yay!
