Although I’m sad summer is on its way out, I’m so happy that my favorite season, fall, is on its way. I love the crisp fall air, visiting pumpkin patches and apple orchards with my kids, and of course, Halloween!

My kids, Halloween 2015

In addition to hoodies, campfires, and Halloween, we’re also looking forward to fall break. In a few weeks, we’re heading to St. Thomas for a week of beach fun with the kids!

After creating a course and writing a book this year, we desperately need some time off. If you think of me in the next few weeks, picture me on the beach with a good book, laid out in a beach chair, or digging in the sand with my kids. Depending on the day and our collective family mood, we could be up to anything!

This trip was partially paid for with airline miles, but we used real money to pay for a few rental condos at Sapphire Beach Resort & Marina on the island’s east end. Needless to say, I am so pumped and ready to have a good time!

My Course, EarnMoreWriting.com is Live

In other news, my brand new freelance course – EarnMoreWriting.com – is finally live. Since I probably poured 200 hours or more into the creation of this course, I am so glad it’s out there and building steam.

I am so excited about the number of courses I have sold already, but I expect to broaden my student base tremendously as affiliates start ramping up their efforts.

Most of all, I am excited to help other people get their freelance careers off the ground! Freelance writing tops my list of legit work-from-home jobs, and I truly believe it’s a great way for anybody to make extra money on the side.

When creating this course, I tried to think of all the things *I* wish I had known when I first got started. While some of the advice I offer is pure common sense, the rest is built on lessons I learned through trial, error, and experience. For all of my successes, I have made a ton of mistakes! By leaning on my advice and doing things the right way from the start, new writers can reach freelance success at a much faster pace.

$25,934.44 in September Income

After bringing in an awesome income in August, we did pretty well in September, too. Not only did we have a decent month in terms of freelance income, but we did well with affiliates. I worked like crazy in September, not only on my freelance work but on this blog and my course, EarnMoreWriting.com. Unfortunately, with all the stuff I have coming up, I had no choice but to hustle and get ahead!

In case you’re wondering, here’s an estimate of how our August income breaks down. I might be a few dollars or cents off here and there, but you get the point!

  • Consulting, Sponsorship, and Affiliate Income: $4,146.44
  • Content Creation and Freelancing: $21,788
  • Freelance Writing Course: $0 (Since I don’t count income until I actually receive it, my first income report with course earnings starts next month.)


While our income is definitely following an upward trajectory, it certainly fluctuates from month to month. Here are a few of our income reports from previous months:

Website Expenses

Since we’re using a Virtual Assistant more often now, our expenses are higher than normal. Fortunately, my husband performs a lot of  work we would normally have to hire out. Not only does he help us make money, but he saves us a ton of cash, too! Here are our website expenses for September 2016:

  • Internet: $51
  • Blog Hosting: $47
  • Misc. Advertising: $300
  • Virtual Assistant: $422

Total: $820

Final Thoughts

After we enjoy some time off this fall, we plan to start building on a ton of new ideas we have. Not only are we going to redesign out website, but we’re going to niche down even further, change our trajectory slightly, and begin a new project.

I can’t wait to get started! In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy some serious R&R.

Did you meet your income goals for September? What are your goals for October and beyond?

  1. Well done and yes an holiday sometime is absolutely an Essential NEED:D

  2. Hey Holly,

    Thanks for the update. I love the new site. The design is beautiful. I would love to enroll in the future! I know you’re really good at that freelance writing income!


  3. Congrats on getting your course launched! I bet a vacation after all that work will be amazing. Have a great time!

  4. Congratulations Holly!! Awesome earnings from you. I hope to reach this miles stone soon. 🙂

  5. Very cool Holly! Congrats on the launch of the course and a great month. We had a good September, especially considering we were on vacation for most of it. I’ve got a good bit of traveling this month but have some things up my sleeve in the next few months. 🙂

  6. Congrats on the income and the launch of the course! The vacation is truly deserved. It’s great to be at the beach as the fall weather, at least in the northeast, has been kinda blah. I want the nice 70s fall weather…not 50/60s and dreary. Anyways, freelance writing sounds interesting and I might have to look into it. I’m always curious though…how do you not get writer’s block since you write so much?!

  7. Okay I read some peoples income reports and a lot of them will have 6-7 figures and then have like $10,000 in expenses. I suppose 10k in expenses is like nothing to them but I kinda like that yours is really low. I suppose once your soldiers (affiliates) for the course get going then you’ll have more expenses. Keep up the great work!

  8. I love reading income reports, it’s so inspiring! I am definitely going to check out your course. I have been wanting to get into freelance writing and I just don’t even know where to start. :-/

  9. What an amazing month for you guys! I’ve just published my first income report and it’s slightly different to yours, lol. I really need to get my husband on board with helping me with the blog! That would definitely help me utilise my time better – you are very lucky 🙂

  10. Carson Sting says:

    I did meet my financial goal this month. $5. It was great.

  11. Thanks for sharing your income report Holly! And congratulations on the successful month!
    I unfortunately did not meet my financial goals this month.
    As for October, I recently wrote a post about my goals. I’m working on more aggressively pursing freelance work and improving my financial situation.

  12. Hey Holly great income report. Are you accepting affiliates for your new course yet?

  13. Congratulations on your success! I’m a brand-new blogger. Just launched my blog, Happy Humble Home, 2 weeks ago. Income reports like this are so motivating to me since at this point (and as far as I can see in the future) I’m working on my blog for free. I know it could be something bigger in the future though and reading income reports like this get me so excited about what the future might bring. 🙂

  14. Very inspiring! I’ve been blogging for a long time, but only recently started to focus on what I earn from it. Wish I would have started a lot earlier… It will be interesting to see where your course leads! Best of luck!
