September is My Month – It Was Great!
This is a Review & Reflection post where I take a look at what I got done over the past month. I want life to be a balance of creating an online business while enjoying the good things with family and friends.
This is what I am striving for. I hope that this post will help to inspire others who are looking for the same thing too.
Highlights – My Birthday
The main highlight was that it was my birthday this month! I celebrated by going out for a meal with friends and then watching a theatre show.
We saw Forbidden Broadway, which was hilarious, the type of show where your eyes are streaming with tears due to laughing so much. It was a great evening.
Life has been good to me so far but there is still so much more that I would like to achieve. Writing these blog posts are definitely helping me to focus on my goals.
I Got My Name on a Leader-board
It was so exciting to log into Facebook and find out that I had made it onto a sales leader-board. It was for a product that Tiffany Lambert had on offer.
Thank you to Michelle for liking the picture, thus alerting me to it’s existence. I was pleased as punch to see my little old name down there at the bottom.
If I work a little harder, my name could rise one level higher and then who knows? Wow.
Connecting With Online People Has Been Great
Taking part in the 30 Day Blogging Challenge has been a lovely way to meet new people and to discover new posts. I was also happy to connect with a couple of new PLR providers as well. It was an honour to be sent a review copy of someone’s product and to be asked to promote.
I look forward to doing more of that in the future.
Results of The Goals I Set for September
- I will earn $520 – YES
- I will publish my info product – NO
- I will write 20 articles my PLR site – YES
- I will publish a post each day for 30 days – YES
My Income Report for September
I am striving to earn $1,000 for the month of December. I have broken down this goal into chunks that increase each month. September’s target was to earn $520. Let’s take a look at how I did.
- Earnings from The PLR Boutique = $20 Last month = $125
- Earnings from Recommending Other PLR & Products = $401.25 = Last month = $195.28
- Earnings from Amazon Affiliate Programme = $105.99 Last month = $25.47
- Earnings from Amazon Kindle Book Sales = $21.30 Last month = $32.10
Total Earnings for August 2014 = $548.54 Last month = $377.85
I am over the moon with my results. As I mentioned in the video, when I hit my target I actually got up and did a happy dance, much to the amusement of my sister. Lol
Hey, you really have to celebrate the wins, otherwise what is the point. Enjoy the good times and work hard so that there are more.
I just checked and my Halloween site earned $56 for September – and Halloween shopping has only just begun 🙂
If you are still on the fence about starting up a Christmas site, I would say go for it.
There is going to be a lot of great PLR (ready to use) articles on sale soon so you will have the content you need. I am hoping that I will do well with my own Christmas site.

Things I Will Do in October
#1 – I Will Earn $680
Last month’s goals was to earn $520 and I made $548. Success!
This month’s scary number is $680. I hope to continue doing more of the same.
#2 – I Will Publish My Info Product
This was almost ready last month but changes in procedures meant that part of this product was out of date. It is now all coming together and I really hope to have it released by the end of this month.
#3 – I Will Complete My 31 Day Blogging Challenge
I am happy to say that in September I added 30 new blog posts to my various websites. This month I am concentrating on this site. I will also be adding a video each day just to add on the pressure. lol
#4 – I Will Write 20 New PLR Articles for My PLR Site
I managed to write 20 new PLR articles last month. Success! 5 articles were offered as a Free PLR offer and the other 20 will make up a new offer next week.
I didn’t put out a sale for September and this is reflected in my earnings. But this month should be better.
This month I am also aiming to write another 20 PLR articles. I have already done 5 so only 15 more to go. Hurrah!
Time for Accountability
I hope to stay accountable by being active in the blogging challenge groups that I have joined. I am feeling positive about everything and excited about what this month will bring. Wish me luck 🙂
