Quarter 1 Review

If you head over to Pinterest and type in “entrepreneur income report” you are inundated with “$12,000/ month!”, “November I made $140,000”, I’m here to give you a more relatable income report.

*PLEASE NOTE* if you’re not “here” yet, THAT’S OKAY! This took me 4 years of building my business, honing my skills, and creating passive income sources to get to this monthly revenue. You’re doing a GREAT JOB right where you’re at!

Quarter 1 was my most successful quarter yet! (And it has nothing to do with money)⁠

If you are wanting to make money online, but also have BALANCE in your business, I think you’ll like this blog.

Check out my Q1 income report with stats below (including my expenses because there is nothing more frustrating than seeing “I made a 10k month” but then realizing they spent 8k in Facebook ads, outsourcing, etc.)!

It all started with maternity leave…

My 3 month maternity leave ended up extending into January due to a necessary c-section and recovery, so this income report is really just 2 months.

I’ve always been hesitant to do one of these quarter reports/ small business finance reports, because I never want someone to compare where they are at to where I am, but I also know the benefit of getting a peek into someone’s business so here it is:

Total income = $2,520.33Total income = $7,876.25Total income = $4,844.00
Total Expenses = $655.95Total Expenses = $124.87Total Expenses = $143.24

My goal is to make about $2,500 a month and was surprised and elated to surpass that every month. I was able to focus 95% of my time on my daughter by having website in a day be my main service and trying to get 2 a month. Of course I work more than just 2 days a month (hello Instagram and maintaining my business), but I truly felt I had a great balance and am so happy I could be there for all the little milestones of my daughter’s first 6 months.

    I feel fairly confident in saying that without community my business would have crashed and burned in the first few years. How has community helped my business grow?
