Has not been a great month overall. Missed the photography income point by $200 and thanks to google secondary income has dropped as well. The big thing this past month has been my health. Reflux seems to have gotten worse and like last year at this time the GAD has sprung up. I can count on one hand the number of days I had no anxiety this month. Back at the doctors and trying new meds again as well as CBT therapy. You may have seen som of my twitter posts from my blog afrogsdiary.com about this. Constant anxiety makes it hard to focus and get work done. Keeping this report short this time so here it goes.
Was a slow month with only 10 sessions and as I mentioned fell short of the monthly goal by $200. June does look a bit better as I already have 10 sessions on the books, lets hope for a couple more and some good ordering sessions 🙂
Not much to say here. Only one affiliate sale and a couple of book sales.
Well infolinks continues to trickle in and got a couple more sponsored tweets. The disappointment was that I actually made a $17 click bank sale but then it was refunded 2 days later.
Even with the weekly contributions to Vanguard the market took a tumble in May which brought my portfolio down for the month. Didn’t make a Buy and Hold purchase either out of concern for money coming up.
March 2012 Report
|Other Affiliates (clickbank, infolinks, e-junkie,Linkshare, Sponsored Tweets)||$3.49|
|Prints and Calendar Sales||$0.00|
|buy and hold||$10.16|
No charts this time. I outgoing did exceed incoming this month. that included $1,400 sales tax bill as well as investments. With out those it would have been about break even
Assets vs Debt
Assets dropped again this month. Home value, portfolio ad sales tax payment helped out there.
Debts did go down, making the min payments in May
What I learned, Goals and milestones achieved
Being sick has an advantage! I dont go out and spend money and I dont eat much 🙂 I also learned that when my credit/debit card expires I should check my adwords account and update. For almost 2 months my account was suspended because of that and thats a good reason why I was not getting a lot of new phone calls.
Goals / Milestones met this month:
Whats next and Goals
Sorry my main goal is not financial this month, but rather to get these health issues kicked in the ass and get back to normal. Then it will be easier to work harder on the incomes. Been doing a lot of evening walks and listening to podcasts from Pat Flynn and Chris Guthrie and others, as well as reading a lot of blogs. Hope to apply what Ive learned in get the passive income up.
How did you do in May?
