Today’s April 1st, but my income report is no joke! I’m SO excited about how the month closed out.
It was my highest grossing month yet, topping my previous high by almost $700!
I’m continuing to learn, to grow, and to challenge myself to do better. I’d love to hit similar numbers for April!
Let’s Look at the Numbers
Total income for March: $2468.85.
I’m still sort of in shock–I brought in almost $2500 working from home, part time, with my kids alongside me. It’s an incredible realization that you can make real money online.
Here’s a quick breakdown:
Virtual Assistant Services:57%
My VA income report includes both work that was done in February and paid in early March, and work that was done in March and paid in March.
I’m currently looking for an additional client, so I’m hoping that portion of my income continues to increase.
Now Let’s Talk Expenses
My total expenses for December were $611.11. That’s lower than last month, but still higher than I’d like them.
However, I’m continuing to see the importance of investing back in my business though, so there will always be expenses.
What were my expenses for March?
-I signed up for The Course Course. While significantly higher than any other course I’ve taken thus far, I’m confident that it’ll pay for itself once I take the plunge and get my course launched. I’ve been learning so much and tweaking my material accordingly!
-I’m attending my first networking event in April, and had to pay for a booth. I also bought some business cards to have on hand. I love how they turned out!
-The never ending PayPal fees. Those are always depressing–but fees of some sort are a necessary part of doing business online.
-ConvertKit subscription. I liked the low cost of MailChimp, but found it difficult to keep track of multiple lists. Depending on what freebie someone signed up for, they could be on more than 1.
ConvertKit also has landing pages and some other perks. I think it’ll be good–once I figure it out!
What’s in Store for April?
April showers bring May flowers right? Around here, I’m hoping to pour on some growth, and would love to see things start sprouting!
Here’s what I’m planning:
-Officially launching my course
-Experimenting with Facebook Ads (for the course)
-Writing an ebook on Simply Family Fun to sell on Amazon
-Finding additional VA work
-Continuing to pitch for writing gigs–preferably long-term ones!
I’m hoping my writing and virtual assistance income report continues to grow! I enjoy breaking down the numbers and sharing them here. I’ve been inspired by so many entrepreneurs who openly shared their numbers!
How did your March look? What are you planning for April?
