Sharing numbers and money is always such a weird/ uncomfortable thing for me, but here’s how I’m making $$$ while on maternity leave:
1. I’m beyond blessed to live in a state that has paid family & medical leave. Meaning even as an entrepreneur they PAY ME to have a baby based on my earnings 4 quarters prior.
2. I’m 5 years into business & have developed “passive income” sources. I wouldn’t be making this money at year 2 if I’m being honest. That being said we all know passive income isn’t passive and I had to work hard the months prior to keep it going for my 3 month leave.
I spill my last 2 ways I’m earning money towards the end of the video!
|My Squarespace Course (Payment Plan)||$89.00|
|Social Media Clients||$1,350.00|
|WA Paid Family & Medical Leave||$2,813.00|
A few things to note – I had to renew my LLC with the Department Of Revenue + file my annual report with the Secretary of State, so that took a large chunk out of the earnings.
I also hired an assistant who maintains all my social media clients. I pay her hourly and she received $410 for the month.
