"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got."
I love the saying but it's also very pertinent to this whole Income Report process. Every time I get to the time of the month to write a new one, I realise that I'm broadly writing the same old, same old.
There may well be progress but it's slow. And there's often a fair bit of familiarity about it all. And for many months it really was pretty much the same.
Thankfully, I've finally got my first ebook up and running. It's not pulling up trees at the moment but at least I've started.
I need to be patient and not get sucked into assuming that all those others making big bucks online (or at least so they tell us) have taken a long while to do so.
I've given myself a target. I've got a 90-day challenge going on, where my goal is to have tangible online and offline income streams properly set up. I don't expect to be kicking back with a pina colada and getting ready to retire, but I hope to be able to show to myself that I'm genuinely on the right path.
So my goal is to have something worthwhile to write when I get to August. I'm working on a couple of eBooks, looking at how to monetize through a few websites and want to expand a few different areas.
In the meantime for April:
Resume Writing: $1,760
