It’s time for my first affiliate income report!
(This post contains affiliate links)
We were chatting in the Actionista Mastermind group (where I hang out with my entrepreneurial friends) and talking about affiliate income.
I shared a link to a training that I did about earning affiliate income.
And then I started thinking maybe I should actually share where my affiliate income comes from.
I asked a few friends and they said they find income reports motivating.
So here goes.
Welcome to October’s Passive Income Report, where I show you how I earned extra income online in the previous month.
This is not a reporting of every dollar I earn online.
I also earn from consulting private clients, coaching clients 1:1 and in group settings, live events, courses, speaking, webinars and workshops.
But this is simply going to be a passive income report. It will include affiliate income and income from display ads.
The idea is to track and measure this so I can find ways to increase this income. My goal is to generate $4,000 per month from affiliate income.
It’s definitely possible.
If you would have told me a few years ago that I would be working for myself, and earning thousands each month with my own business, I probably would have not believed you.
But that is what life is like right now.
And it all started with creating a blog and making my first dollar as an affiliate.

Here we go!
I want to quickly share my September Passive Income Report. Mostly so you can see the contrast.
October was a really good month because one of the programs that I’m an affiliate for did a special promotion.
I was one of the winners of the contest and I won an additional $149 on top of the extra affiliate income they were offering.
In addition to that, I have a post that goes viral right around Halloween that increased my Google Adsense income significantly.
However, in September I earned $674.70 from the various programs.
For me, my affiliate income fluctuates from month to month. Sometimes I make a few hundred and sometimes I’ll hit the thousand dollar mark. But at this point I’m consistently earning at least $300.
I’m planning to implement some new strategies to increase this and make the income more consistent. I will let you know how those experiments turn out.

EDIT: Amazon Affiliates – $13.54 (I completely forgot this one and that’s what changed the total income)
I’m also an affiliate for several more programs. I’ve decided to add those when I earn something from them. Then I’ll leave them there whether I earn something that month or not.
What I’m Currently Engrossed In
Every now and then I go on a low information diet. This is me taking a step back and avoiding any new information that could take me off course. But then, when I’m ready, I go into binge mode and start learning everything I can about a new topic.
Right now, I’m improving my webinar game and this training on the Perfect Webinar is on replay in my laptop.
2016 was an amazing year for my business. In October of 2015, I made the decision to go full speed, I hired a mentor and I worked my butt off. I implemented systems, created trainings, and grew my audience (love you guys!).
I know that step was the best thing I could have done for my business.
Now I’m looking towards 2017 and planning an even bigger year.
I have a challenge in the works, a new course, more YouTube videos, and several collaborations that I’m pretty excited about. The best way to keep up to date with everything that is happening is to become an Actionista. You can do that by clicking here and getting on my private list.
