For those of you new to Smart Passive Income, you might be wondering why I care to post my income reports online. Here are my thoughts: Companies in the stock market share their earnings too, which gives people an idea of how the company is performing. Based on that, people can make a decision whether or not to invest (or continue investing) in that company.
July 2014 Riding off of the successful beta launch of The Smart Podcast Player in June, which sold out 250 licenses in less than 24 hours, my team and I met in Portland during World Domination Summit to plan out the rest of the launch timeline. A more detailed post about the entire development and launch process is in the works, but as we continue to add more features, we’re ...
Why Is This Report So Short? When I first published my income report for August 2014, I combined it with the July Income Report. With my new website redesign, I need to separate the data from these posts. Again, for the full reflections on August, visit the full post here: the full post here: My July and August 2014 Monthly Income Report.
In the past on the rare occasion that I do get behind and have had to play catch up, I’ve combined two or more reports in one, but this time I’m going to separate them out. Today I’m publishing September’s report, and my next post will be October’s. From there, we’ll be back on track and ready to go for 2015.
In addition to the lessons, I include an extremely detailed breakdown of the income I’ve earned too. Things happen every month that fluctuate my income. Here’s what happened in October. FoodTruckr, On the Rise! FoodTruckr.com, an experimental site I started from scratch over a year ago (see niche site duel), is finally starting to accelerate.
In the meantime, let’s dive right into the details of November: Platform Conference In early November, I had the pleasure of speaking at one of my favorite conferences, the Platform Conference, hosted by Michael Hyatt. There are a number of reasons why I love this event, however the biggest reason is definitely because of the people who are there.
Why Is This Report So Short? When I first published my income report for December 2014, I combined it with the 2014 Annual Report. With my new website redesign, I need to separate the data from these posts. Again, for the full reflections on December, visit the full post here: the full post here: My 2014 Annual Income Report and Review: $946,256.23.
This report, like every other monthly report shared here on the blog, serves many purposes: To reflect on what went well. The accomplishments. The wins. The gains. To look back on what could have been improved. The failures, mistakes and hard lessons learned. To educate and inspire you based on #1 and #2. To get an overall snapshot of where my businesses currently stand.
I recommend you read the background story, however if you just want to watch the video, click here to go straight to YouTube. Last year, my wife and I became brand new homeowners. It was a truly a huge moment for us because we had been renting ever since we were married (5 years), putting money aside each month so we could someday live in our dream home.
What Happened in January? We’re off to the races. A lot of things that were planned in 2014 were finally launched in January, including The Smart Podcast Player, and the 1-Day Business Breakthrough Podcast with my co-host, Chris Ducker. I’ll talk more about those two things below, but the first thing I’d like to touch on relates to something specific I mentioned in my annual ...
Important Going-Ons in February Typically I can categorize each month as either a planning month, or an execution month. I do this strategically in my overall planning schedule because it helps me stay focused on what needs to be done and which brain I’ll need to tap into more. With that said, February was definitely both a planning AND execution month.
What Happened in March? A lot of exciting things happened last month. To start off, I actually accomplished a personal goal I’ve had for close to a year now, something I’ve been training hard for since January 1st: I wanted to break my previous half marathon record, which was at 1:58:13. On March 8th, I ran the San Diego half marathon – 13.
…. Business-wise, nothing else mattered, and I made sure of it. To clear my schedule for these events, I worked extremely hard in March to develop a queue of content for each The Smart Passive Income Blog, the Podcast, Ask Pat and SPI TV. This way, I made sure I had nothing else on my mind and I could use all of that extra time to rehearse, rehearse…
… up with new ideas for posts, themes and overall content strategy. Help with content creation for new lead magnets, email and coursework. You might remember me starting out the year with the goal of being more consistent with my content. Although I’ve already made massive improvements this year compared to last, especially with the podcasts…
… in terms of the life of the site and business. One major decision that I recently made with FoodTruckr internally is that I decided to slow down the content production and take most of the team away from any work on the site to be able to enjoy the summer months before ramping up and re-focusing on SPI-related projects in the coming months. Already…
