January Roundup – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

We look through these January (and one December) income reports to see what we can learn. We explore what other bloggers are doing to make extra income as the pursue financial freedom. Let's learn!

January Roundup – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

Today we take a look around the internet at our favorite income reports from around the web. These articles bring together seven to ten bloggers to see what they did in the past month. Some of these people will be fresh for this month while others will be regulars.

The point of this article is for all of us to learn what other bloggers are doing to bring income in each month. Hopefully, you will find something new to increase your own income next month.

Before we get started, let’s take a look at how Andrew started off 2018. Overall, he had a pretty successful month bringing in $131.60 during the month. He also wrapped up 2017 with a total count of the income he made online. So, go check out his income report to see how he accomplished it and give him a congratulations comment at the bottom.

Here we go with this month’s featured bloggers!

Bobby Hoyt – Millennial Money Man – $155,424.10 (January 2018)

Holy crap Bobby! What a stunning month of growth!

For those who do not know, Bobby usually earns between $10k to $15k each month.

Where did this growth come from? Well, Bobby launched a new course called the Facebook Side Hustle Course. This course brought in $139,488.00 (gross revenue) in its opening month!

It will be fun to see if this monthly revenue becomes a norm or not. My guess is yes. I think we just witnessed another blogger, after tons of hard work, launch himself into the $100,000+ a month club.

Keep up the amazing work Bobby and thank you for being such an inspiration!

Pat Flynn – $167,553.31 (December 2017)

Pat’s income reports are always a month behind because I do this roundup in the middle of the month and he posts later on in the month.

This month Pat talks about wrapping up 2017 and getting ready for 2018. He has done his usual routines to conquer all of the goals he has set up for 2018.

I always include Pat on this income report because he is extremely smart at what he does. This will hopefully give you ideas and motivation to conquer new goals yourself.

Michelle Schroeder – $114,812 (January 2018)

Michelle had a solid and very consistent start to 2018. She brought in $114,812 for the month.

This month Michelle reminds us that she started off by earning $0 a month as well. With a lot of hard work, persistence, and patience she has been able to grow that income into what it is today. Andrew and I use Michelle as our inspiration to keep pushing through hard times each and every week.

In case you missed it, Andrew and I had an article featured on her website last week about our SEO and Web Marketing strategy.

Lanny and Bert – Dividend Diplomats – $139.02 (January 2018 Bert’s)

Bert started 2018 off with an 8.77% increase in dividend income compared to 2017. Though his numbers were a little lower than normal, this growth is a great way to start the year off.

Keep up the great work Bert!

Curious as to what the heck dividend income is? Andrew explains it really well in his What are Dividends and Dividend Investing article. Check it out to learn more!

 

 

Keith Park – DivHut – $1,327.29 (January 2018)

Keith is another dividend investor that is starting 2018 off strongly! He was able to bring in $1,327.79 for the month of January.

His numbers were strongly boosted by the BCR/BDK merger. This brought in an extra $897.56 for him. Pretty awesome right?!?! It will be fun to see what he does with this extra income.

Keith has a very nice and clean strategy to gaining extra income from dividends. Andrew has also written up what his strategy is in his My Dividend Investing Strategy.

Reverse the Crush – $28.26 (January 2018)

We wrap up this income report round up with another dividend who opened up 2018 with a bang! Reverse the Crush had his best month ever by earning $28.26 last month in just dividend income. That is pretty awesome!

Compared to December he more than doubled his dividend income!

Keep up the awesome work!

Outcomes

We can take a lot away from Bobby and Michelle this month. Every very successful blogger had to start at the bottom. They were not handed a golden ticket that took them to where they are now. They had to work hard every day to get their blog to where it is today.

This is why I love blogging. You truely get out of it what you put into it.

December Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

December Roundup – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

Today we take a look around the internet at our favorite income reports from around the web. These articles bring together seven to ten bloggers to see what they did in the past month. Some of these people will be fresh for this month while others will be regulars.

The point of this article is for all of us to learn what other bloggers are doing to bring income in each month. Hopefully, you will find something new to increase your own income next month.

Before we get started, let’s take a look at how Andrew did in December. Overall, he had a pretty successful month bringing in $190.49 during the month. He also wrapped up 2017 with a total count of the income he made online. So, go check out his income report to see how he accomplished it and give him a congratulations comment at the bottom.

Here we go with this month’s featured bloggers!

Pat Flynn – $213,212.64 (November 2017)

Pat’s income reports are always a month behind because I do this roundup at the beginning of the month and he posts later on in the month.

This month Pat talks about how he is getting anxious to start something new. Most of his business has become a well oiled automated machine so he has no place for creative freedom. Well, this month he decided to make a bigger dedication to his Youtube channel.

With this new old adventure (he has had his channel since 2009) he is energized again to have a new challenge. As it is every year, it will be fun to see what he does in 2018!

Michelle Schroeder – $1,536,732 (2017)

WOW!!! What a year by Michelle!

Every December she wraps up the year by totaling up what she earned throughout the year. Back in 2013, when she left her 9-5 job, she earned $116,519. Four years later she has multiplied that number by 13 to earn 1,536,732 in 2017!

It is going to be exciting to see what Michelle does in 2018 to keep the ball rolling. Keep up the good work Michelle!

Lanny and Bert – Dividend Diplomats – $2,009.22 (December 2017 Lanny’s)

So I had to do a double take when I saw Lanny’s dividend income this month. I thought I was looking at a total for 2017! WOW! What a month Lanny!

This is the way to end 2017 and how to go into 2018 fired up!

Obviously, December 2017, was a new personal record for Lanny bringing in $2,009.22 just off of dividend income. Two of his stocks, PRFDX and VINIX, brought in over $1,000 alone.

This is really impressive Lanny! Keep up the good work!

Curious as to what the heck dividend income is? Andrew explains it really well in his What are Dividends and Dividend Investing article. Check it out to learn more!

 

 

 

Reverse the Crush – $11.57 (December 2017)

Reverse the Crush is fairly new to the dividend investing world, starting just six months ago. He just completed his second-best month ever earning $11.57 in December!

Reverse the Crush has a goal to make $1,500 each month from only dividend income. This will allow him to leave the 9 to 5 job to focus on blogging full time.

We wish him the best of luck in the coming months. Keep up the good work!

Bobby Hoyt – Millennial Money Man – $13,186.26 (December 2017)

Bobby is a pretty incredible blogger to follow because he knows how to reach people. His blog set many new personal records during 2017 such as reaching over 1 million readers! That is pretty awesome Bobby! Congrats!

In December he brought in $13,186.26 through affiliate marketing, advertisements, and digital marketing consulting. This month he just let the website do its thing while he focused on completing and planning some new projects.

Keep an eye out for those new projects!

Millennial Boss – $2,560 (December 2017)

Millennial Boss (MB) is new to this report. I stumbled upon her blog on Twitter earlier this week.

It is really impressive what MB has accomplished such as paying off over $90,000 in loans to become debt free. She also co-hosts a new podcast called the Fire Drill Podcast. AND she crushed her goal to make over $18,000 from side hustle income during 2017 by actually making over $23,000.

Basically she does it all!

MB capped 2017 off by bringing in $2,560 in the month of December. She mainly makes her money affiliate marketing. It is actually really impressive how diversified her affiliates are. I suggest you check out her list!

Keith Park – DivHut – $682.74 (November 2017)

Keith crushed it in the month of November! He had a 26% year over year gain to bring his monthly total to $682.74. Well done Keith! Keep it growing for 2018!

Keith has a very nice and clean strategy to gaining extra income from dividends. Andrew has also written up what his strategy is in his My Dividend Investing Strategy.

More from Keith to come up next!

Outcomes

I always love the wise words that Keith speaks in his posts. This month he talks about the patience and persistence of dividend investing. It takes time to build a solid passive income no matter what your income stream is.

Even if you have a down month, keep your head up and keep moving forward.

November Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

November Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

Today we take a look around the internet at our favorite income reports from around the web. These articles bring together seven to ten bloggers to see what they did in the past month. Some of these people will be fresh for this month while others will be regulars.

The point of this article is for all of us to learn what other bloggers are doing to bring income in each month. Hopefully, you will find something new to increase your own income next month.

Speaking of increasing income, Andrew had another great month in November!  He brought in $89.57 during the month. Check out his income report to see how he accomplished it and give him a congratulations comment at the bottom.

Here we go with this month’s featured bloggers!

Pat Flynn – $145,511.70 (August 2017)

Pat’s income has been pretty volatile the last few months. I think the only thing that goes up and down more is the price of Bitcoin. One month he is making $184,000, the next $321,000, then back down to $140,000, then up to $220,000, and finally back down to $145,511.70 this month.

I do not know about you but that would stress me out from month to month!

Now in Pat’s defense, he released a new product every month there was a spike. He has done a very nice job creating a solid base income that he can rely on from month to month (about the $140,000 range). Then he stacks on that foundation with new product releases.

He has created this foundation with a diverse set of income streams that range from affiliate income to niche sites to sponsorships to software.

 

Michelle Schroeder – $110,656 (November 2017)

Michelle’s numbers are always strong and consistent. She made $110,656 in November which is right around her normal range, $110,000 to $135,000.

She makes most of her income from affiliate income, the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Course, sponsorships, and advertisements.

Currently, Michelle works anywhere from 10-20 hours a week on her blog reaping in all of the benefits of the hard work she put in earlier. Keep up the good work Michelle!

Lanny and Bert – Dividend Diplomats – $274.98 (November 2017 Bert’s)

Here goes the same monthly spiel about why I like to follow Lanny and Bert’s adventure for two reasons. One, they are two best friends seeking financial freedom just like Andrew and I. Second, you can get two different perspectives on dividend investing from one place!

This month we will look at Bert’s November dividend income report. Bert had a stunning 71.66% increase compared to his 2016 November numbers bringing his total to $274.98.

Well done Bert!

Curious as to what the heck dividend income is? Andrew explains it really well in his What are Dividends and Dividend Investing article. Check it out to learn more!

 

Jay – Dividend Miracle – $138.80 (November 2017)

This month we introduce several new bloggers to the income report. This is nothing against the other bloggers who were on the report before. I just wanted to introduce some new blood to this post so we can all learn from other people. First up is Jay from Dividend Miracle.

Jay started building up his dividend income to help his family gain financial freedom. This money will hopefully be passed down to his daughter and generations after that.

This month they brought in $138.80 from a wide array of dividend stocks. I’m actually really impressed by the list. Check it out as you might learn a new one to invest in.

Jay has a very nice and clean strategy to gaining extra income from dividends. Andrew has also written up what his strategy is in his My Dividend Investing Strategy.

Leah – The Sweetest Way – $1933.53 (September 2017)

The Sweetest Way might be my favorite new blog. I love to travel but do not get to like I would like to. Darn you adult responsibilities!

Anyways, I always love a good blog that I can live my dreams of traveling through. The cool thing about Leah from The Sweetest Way is she just started reporting her income reports a few months ago from the work she does while traveling. We get the best of two worlds!

Leah talks about creating passive income so you can travel around the globe. She also talks about gaining location independence, which sounds pretty cool!

She currently makes most of her money from advertisements, affiliate income, sponsorships, and e-books. Pretty sweet!

Keep up the good work Leah and I look forward to following your adventures in the future!

Reverse the Crush – $5.14 (November 2017)

Reverse the Crush is fairly new to the dividend investing world starting just six months ago. He is off to a great start bringing in $5.14 in November from 2 companies.

Reverse the Crush has a goal to make $1,500 each month from only dividend income. This will allow him to leave the 9 to 5 job to focus on blogging full time.

We wish him the best of luck in the coming months. Keep up the good work!

Samantha – Recipe This – $29,171.58 (2017)

Recipe This is a food blog run by food addict Samantha. We have never featured a food blog and I thought it would be fun mainly because I love food and cooking my self.

This income report focuses on ALL of the income Recipe This made during 2017. They make their money from a very diverse set of income streams. These range from sponsorships, Google Adsense, Amazon Associates, consulting, advertisements, and so much more!

Recipe This will be a fun blog to follow in the future.

Outcomes

We can learn from Pat’s volatile income stream to have a solid income base. For me, right now, that is my day job until Wallet Squirrel starts taking off. You will need this in case things go sideways.

Do you have a solid base income that would support your family?

October Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

October Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

Today we take a look around the internet of our favorite income reports from around the web. These articles bring together seven to ten bloggers to see what they did in the past month. Some of these people will be fresh for this month while others will be regulars.

The point of this article is for all of us to learn what other bloggers are doing to bring in income each month. Hopefully, you will find something new to increase your own income next month.

Speaking of income report, Andrew had a pretty good month in October!  He brought in $171.10 during the month. Check out his October income report to see how he accomplished it.

Here we go with this month’s featured bloggers!

Pat Flynn – $220,158.54 (September 2017)

Pat posts his income reports a little later than I post this round up so we are going to look at his September numbers.

I know I always have Pat and Michelle (see last months round up, her October numbers are not out yet) at the top of my post but they are just so darn motivating. In my opinion, these two really have set the bar in the blogging world. It is good to know what we need to do to create a high standard blog like they have.

Pat had a better September, $220,158.54, compared to August where he brought in $140,866.38. Pat makes his money from a very diverse set of income sources that include affiliate income, book sales, course sales, niche sites, podcast sponsorships, software, and apps. Phew! That is an awesome list!

 

 

Alexis – FITnancials – $4,612(October 2017)

This is Alexis’ second month on the income round up.

She had a very nice month bringing in $4,612, which is about $600 more than last month.

Most of her monthly income comes from sponsored posts, affiliate income, add revenue, free products, and being a virtual assistant.

I like to follow FITnancials because the maturity of the website is just about the same as Wallet Squirrel. It gives us a good bookmark on how much time Andrew and I should spend on the blog each week. Alexis spends about 20-30 hours a week on it unless she is traveling where it could drop to 5-10 hours.

How much time a week do you spend on your blog?

Bobby Hoyt – Millennial Money Man – $16,409.45 (October 2017)

Bobby keeps moving up with his monthly income! In October he made an impressive $16,409.45 compared to $15,551.47 in September.

This amount is impressive because he only makes his income from affiliate marketing, advertisement, staff writing, and digital marketing.

Even though Bobby is not as diverse with his income sources such as Pat Flynn, he really does well for himself.

He could expand out his digital marketing business but does not because he enjoys the lifestyle he has now.

Personally, I highly respect him for this decision. Everyone should shoot for a healthy work/life balance. Life is not only about money when you don’t get to enjoy your family as well.

Lanny and Bert – Dividend Diplomats – $422.03 (Lanny’s October 2017)

Here goes the same monthly spiel about the two reasons as to why I like to follow Lanny and Bert’s adventure. One, they are two best friends seeking financial freedom just like Andrew and I. Second, you can get two different perspectives on dividend investing from one place!

Even though I will probably never change that opener, I will change what income we look at from Lanny and Bert. This month we will look at Lanny’s October dividend income summary.

Lanny had a really nice month, bringing in $422.03 just from dividend income. He has been enjoying some awesome dividend income from Cisco the last few months. Pretty awesome job Lanny!

Curious as to what the heck dividend income is? Andrew explains it really well in his What are Dividends and Dividend Investing article. Check it out to learn more!

 

 

Keith Park – DivHut – $516.43 (October 2017)

As always, Keith had another solid month of dividend income even though it was lower than September. He gained $516.43 in October compared to $867.42 in the month of September.

Even though he had a lower month, because October is the first month of the 4th quarter, he still had a 19% increase compared to last year! Well done Keith!

Keith has a very nice and clean strategy for gaining extra income from dividends. Andrew has also written up what his strategy is in his My Dividend Investing Strategy.

Investment Hunting – $890.39 (October 2017)

Investment Hunting (IH) had its best October ever from dividend and options income, recording $890.39.

IH has set a lofty goal for 2017 to make $7,500 from dividend income and $7,500 from options income. Currently, he is ahead on the dividend income goal but behind on the options goal.

The market has not played that nice this year for options and there is not much IH can do about that.

Keep up the good work!

Outcomes

Personally, I believe that diversity in income sources is the key to success in the blogging world. The ventures you touch, I believe you increase your chances of success. This can be seen from Pat Flynn.

Andrew and I have some projects for 2018 lined up that will help diversify Wallet Squirrel a little more. Stay tuned…

September Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

September Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

Today we take a look around the internet of our favorite income reports from around the web. These articles bring together seven to ten bloggers to see what they did in the past month. Some of these people will be fresh for this month while others will be regulars.

The point of this article is for all of us to learn what other bloggers are doing to bring in income each month. Hopefully, you will find something new to increase your own income next month.

Speaking of increasing income, Andrew had his best month ever in September!  He brought in $368.91 during the month. Check out his income report to see how he accomplished it and give him a congratulations comment at the bottom.

Here we go with this month’s featured bloggers!

 

Pat Flynn – $140,866.38 (August 2017)

Pat posts his income reports a little later than I post this round up so we are going to look at his September numbers.

The difference between Pat’s July and August numbers really show how the launch of a new product can really boost your numbers. In July, Pat’s income was more than $300k, which is insane! In August, he came back to Earth (a little bit) making $140,866.38.

July was so successful because of his new course, Power-Up Podcasting. This course brought in $243,332.00 in one month! In August it brought in $52,477.00. Still really good returns but nothing compared to July.

 

Michelle Schroeder – $113,267.08 (September 2017)

Michelle has had another month of steady income at right around the $115k range. Since she has laid out such a strong foundation, she does not have to work as hard on her blog. She has been working only about 10 hours a week allowing a virtual assistant to help her with time-consuming tasks.

Michelle is an inspiration for me because she is where I want to get with blogging. Reading her blog gives us insight into what all of the time and hard work put into our very own blog will pay off to be.

Andrew, I, and you will get there. We just need to keep pushing forward and working hard like Michelle did.

Alexis – FITnancials – $4,018 (September 2017)

Alexis is a newcomer to the income round up. I found her because she is actually Michelle Schroeder’s sister.

I find Fitnancials interesting because the maturity of the site seems very similar to what Wallet Squirrel is. Which makes me want to work harder on our monthly income as Alexis brought in over $4k for the month of September. We should be doing something similar.

Most of her monthly income comes from sponsored posts, affiliate income, add revenue, free products, and being a virtual assistant.

Alexis mentions she might stop creating the monthly income reports. To her I say, for selfish reasons, don’t. Reading income reports is something I really enjoy and it would be sad to lose yours to read every month.

Bobby Hoyt – Millennial Money Man – $15,551.47 (September 2017)

Bobby made an impressive $15,551.47 in September. This amount is impressive because he only makes his income from affiliate marketing, advertisement, staff writing, and digital marketing.

Even though Bobby is not as diverse with his income sources such as Pat Flynn, he really does well for himself. He could expand out his digital marketing business but does not because he enjoys the lifestyle he has now. I respect him for this decision. There needs

I highly respect him for this decision. Everyone should shoot for a healthy work/life balance. Life is not only about money when you don’t get to enjoy your family as well.

Lanny and Bert – Dividend Diplomats – $200.49 (September 2017 Side Hustle Report)

Here goes the same monthly spiel about why I like to follow Lanny and Bert’s adventure for two reasons. One, they are two best friends seeking financial freedom just like Andrew and I. Second, you can get two different perspectives on dividend investing from one place!

Even though I will probably never change that opener, I will change what income we look at from Lanny and Bert, side hustles! The two have only just recently begun to track and report their side hustle income so it will be fun to see how it develops in the future.

Lanny and Bert mainly made their income from cash back programs such as eBates (see Andrew’s review here), Swagbucks, and Ibotta (see my review here). They also made a good amount from selling unwanted stuff that was cluttering up their homes. They must have read my getting rid of distractions article. 😀

If you are curious about what side hustles that might work for you, check out our Ways to Make Money page.

 

 

Keith Park – DivHut – $867.42 (September 2017)

As always, Keith had another solid month of dividend income. He gained $867.42 in the month of September compared to $658.22 in August.

I would suggest you head over to his post to read his wise words about the stock market as it continues to climb to all-time highs. In short, he says that people have been saying that it will correct to a normal level for over two years now with all of the, “potential monkey wrenches thrown at this market, yet it continues to chug along.” That correction will come, it is something that should be accepted. But it will continue it cycle and bounce back. That is what the market does and you should trust the long game of the market.

I can’t do his wise words justice about not panicking over what analysts are saying so I suggest you read for yourself.

Keith has a very nice and clean strategy to gaining extra income from dividends. Andrew has also written up what his strategy is in his My Dividend Investing Strategy.

Outcomes

Based on what Keith is saying this month. Instead of investing in one area for your income. I always recommend diversifying where your income is coming from. You never know when one source will crash and stop producing income. This is why I am glad to see Lanny and Bert reaching out to different side hustles for more income.

July Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

July Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

Today we take a look around the internet of our favorite income reports from around the web. These articles bring together seven to ten bloggers to see what they did in the past month. Some of these people will be fresh for this month while others will be regulars.

The point of this article is for all of us to learn what other bloggers are doing to bring in income each month. Hopefully, you will find something new to increase your own income next month.

Here we go with this month’s featured bloggers!

Sarah Titus – $75,226.10 (July 2017)

Sarah is a new comer to the round up post this month. I stumbled upon her blog while searching for some new income reports and was immediately blown away by how quickly she has grown her blog. This is only her third year and she is already making over $75k a year! That is amazing progress!

In July she has made $75,226.10. Most of her income comes from her own store on the blog. I thought this was really unique as we have not talked much about bloggers managing their own store with their own products. Her biggest seller is the Honest Blogger Bundle. This bundle is the starters kit to getting your blog up and running.

Matthew Woodward – $22,409.01 (July 2017)

Another newcomer to this post is Matthew Woodward from the UK. He made over $22k off of affiliate income and a mysterious project. What really caught my eye was the great detail that Matthew goes into for his income reports. He goes into traffic, its sources, social media share numbers, and so on. It really gives you perspective on where you need to go.

Nadya – Living Off Cloud – $1,661.87 (July 2017)

Nadya is fun to follow because she specializes in niche websites. She will purchase existing niche websites then work at increasing the existing revenue for them.

This month she brought in $1,661.87 compared to 1,672.04 when we checked in a couple months ago. Most of her income is coming from affiliate and AdSense income.

Looking for some niche website ideas? Andrew has written a great article that looks at examples of Amazon Affiliate websites.

Lanny and Bert – Dividend Diplomats – $133.27 (Bert’s July 2017)

I like to follow Lanny and Bert’s adventure for two reasons. One, they are two best friends seeking financial freedom just like Andrew and I. Second, you can get two different perspectives on dividend investing from one place!

Last month I focused on Lanny’s dividend income report so we will take a look at Bert’s this month. Bert had a little lower month compared to the last time we checked in with him bringing in $133.27 compared to $275.54 in May. Overall, he is showing continued growth compared to 2016 at 14.16%! That is an awesome return. Keep up the good work Bert!

Curious as to what the heck dividend income is? Andrew explains it really well in his What are Dividends and Dividend Investing article. Check it out to learn more!

Investment Hunting – $221.76 (July 2017)

A couple months ago we looked at Investment Hunting’s (IH) adventure with Lending Club. Curious? Check it out! Well, this month I wanted to check back into this creative passive income source. To date, IH has invested $5,000 in the peer-to-peer lending program. He has received a total of $1,041.99 (including interest) in payments back. In the month of July, he received $171.67 in returned principal as well as $51.99 in interest for a total of $221.76 in total payments.

I know you are interested in gaining returns like this yourself. Before jumping into Lending Club, check out Andrew’s review about the service, Lending Club Review, My Experience Investing With Them.

Keith Park – DivHut – $815.38 (June 2017)

Our last income report is a dividend report from Keith Park of DivHut. Keith had a modest month, totaling $253.27 for the month of July compared to $815.38 in the month of June. But, Keith explains that the end of quarter months tend to be much higher compared to the first month in the quarter. As he says, “As long as we can report progress each month and out annual goals are intact, who cares.” I completely agree with this long term outlook!

Keith has a very nice and clean strategy to gaining extra income from dividends. Andrew has also written up what his strategy is in his My Dividend Investing Strategy.

Outcomes

This month, we can take a page from Keith’s book by keeping our long-term goals in focus. Even if we have a lower month of gains, we need to remember that it is only one month. Within the perspective over the entire year that one month will average out. It is nothing to worry about unless goals are completely thrown off. Then it would be time to analyze and adjust your plan of action to get back on track.

June Round Up – Our Favorite Income Reports From Around the Web

June Round Up

Today we take a look around the internet of our favorite income reports from around the web. These round up articles bring together six to ten bloggers to see what they did in the past month. Some of these people will be fresh for this month while others will be regulars for the article.

The point of this article is for all of us to learn what other bloggers do to bring in income each month. Hopefully, you will find something new to increase your own income for the upcoming months.

Here we go with this month’s featured bloggers!

Pat Flynn – Smart Passive Income – $184,094.64 (June 2017)

Pat is always an inspiration for me. Last month when we took a look at his April income report, he took a large dip in income brought in but he always seems to bounce back very strongly. Sure enough, that is exactly what he did by bringing in $184,094.64 in the month of June. I believe this bounce back is because he has diversified his income sources very well. He is making money off of affiliate marketing, book sales, course sales, niche sites, podcasting, software, and applications. He truly has built the passive income empire that Andrew and I strive to accomplish one day!

Michelle Schroeder – Making Sense of Cents – $121,861.28 (June 2017)

Michelle is another inspiring person to Andrew and me. She has been able to create her passive income empire very quickly. Though she is not as diverse as Pat with the ways she makes her money, I think she is more efficient at making money than he is. She does mention in this income report she is starting to focus on diversifying her income sources. I think this is a very smart move and it will be fun to see what she does.

Compared to last month she had modest gains but she did it while sailing on a boat for half of the month. Boy, I would love to make $121,861.28 while sailing on a boat! Who wouldn’t though?!?!

Amanda Abella – $10,541 (June 2016)

So I know this income report is over a year old but remember that is not the point of these income report round up articles. I wanted to feature Amanda this month because I love how she makes her extra income online. When this income report was posted, Amanda states that she did not have a huge following but still was able to bring in a five figure income for that month.

Amanda was able to bring in this large sum of income by finding side hustles that really worked for her such as coaching and content creation. Even though this income report was from a year ago she has continued to increase her income with these side hustles over the past year.

For me, personally, Amanda is a great example that shows you do not need that massive following to make good money on the internet. Keep up the good work Amanda!

Lanny and Bert – Dividend Diplomats – $1,498.60 (Lanny’s June 2017)

Last month I focused on Bert’s dividend income report so we will take a look at Lanny’s this month. Lanny had his best month ever! Congrats on the continued success Lanny! In June he brought in an extra $1,498.60 from just dividend income. That sure sounds like an awesome source of income to have each month!

Curious as to what the heck dividend income is? Andrew explains it really well in his What are Dividends and Dividend Investing article. Check it out to learn more!

Investment Hunting – $1,356.20 (June 2017)

This is another great performance on the dividend income front! Investment Hunting was able to bring in an average of $32.58 every day for the month of June. In my book, that is pretty freaking awesome! I am starting to see why Andrew is so focused on dividend stocks.

I enjoy following Investment Hunting because he is fairly diversified in his income sources. Not only does he make money from dividend stock but also options and Lending Club. If you are curious about his Lending Club income see last month’s roundup.

Keith Park – DivHut – $815.38 (June 2017)

Our last income report this month is a dividend report from Keith Park of DivHut. Last month Keith made just over $500 in dividends but crushed it in June where he made just over $800! That is nearly a $300 increase in the month of June! Wow!

Keith has a very nice and clean strategy to gaining extra income from dividends. Andrew has also written up what his strategy is in his My Dividend Investing Strategy.

Outcomes

Overall, these passive income experts continue to find success through their varied sources of income. Some people are more diverse than others with their sources of extra income than others. I personally believe that everyone should become as diverse as possible like Pat Flynn but it takes time. As we strive to become more diverse we need to focus on one source, become experts in it, and then add on another source on top of that. Do not try to add too much onto your own plate at once as this can increase the chances of failure.
