Income Report – September, 2017

I love these monthly income reports because they show a full transparency of everything we make from all our side-hustles on Wallet Squirrel. Everything we make, we invest to show that you can create an entire retirement portfolio from just extra ways to make money.

So let’s start.

Income Report – September 2017

Every month as we continue to write articles and build our Wallet Squirrel brand, we’re finding more and more opportunities to earn money. September was a great month!

A lot of the income this month was from our Robinhood App Affiliate Program, which gives you a free share of stock when you sign up along with whoever’s referral code you used. In September, 5 people used my referral code (THANKS!) and we both (referer and new sign up) were randomly selected shares of stock. Most of the stocks I random won were around $5 like Sirius XM and Groupon, but I did get one free share of Apple at $160.

Here are all the sources of income for September

$179.89 – Robinhood App Affiliate Program
$72 – TurboTax (which I use) paid to have a link in the existing Cost-Benefit Analysis article. Cool!
$45.00 – Bluehost Affiliate Income
$28.02 – Seeking Alpha Articles
$23.94 – Cashback Credit Card
$6.70 – Dividends
$5.32 – Wallet Squirrel AdSense
$3.88 – Interest Checking/Savings Account
$2.88 – Lending Club
$1.28 – Stock Photography

Where does that $368.91 go?

Since the goal of Wallet Squirrel is to create a $10,000,000 retirement account. The money I make on Wallet Squirrel is invested in my investment portfolio. This month I invested in both Verizon Communications & Cisco Systems.

Let’s Talk Goals

Did I meet last month’s (August) goals? – Not Really

I was SUPPOSED to build the Ultimate Blog Post Marketing Guide. Here’s the thing, I added so many details to my current marketing guide but I realized it will always be a work in progress. I am constantly adding more news networks and syndication spots, but there are ALWAYS more to add! I’m not sure when to stop. So I may hold off for a while on an ultimate guide until I feel I’m at a good spot.

October Goals

Set up a Pinterest Process! – In August, I finally learned what Pinterest was and how to use it but I haven’t yet fully taken advantage of all the tools. I’m hoping to set up some pins through CoSchedule and view other people’s pins and boards to learn what’s successful for them. The end goal is to increase my Pinterest following, I’m currently at 24 followers.

Does anyone reading this have a successful Pinterest Board they want to share?

    No Pinterest board to share, I am a complete newb there.

    Great work WS. I see you are just getting that passive income from SeekingAlpha, nothing tickle your fancy to write an article about? Me neither, the last one I made was on the 11th. I really wanted to do one a week. Maybe this is the month for me!
