Would it change your life to earn an extra $40,000 a year on a side-hustle?

Today’s guest has the proof that you can do it and do it will working a full-time W-2 job.

MAKING MONEY BLOGGING

Julie believes that people can still make money blogging and wants to help other people do it.  She has figured out the secret sauce.

She first began taking monetizing her blog seriously in July of 2016. 

It took her about six months to get it right; learning it all by herself by doing Google searches and trial and error.

Once she had it figured out, she started to make money, slowly but surely.  Things clicked in January of 2017; that month she made $793.00. She continued at it and by December of 2018, she hit her highest month – $7,000.00!

WOW!  In two years – she went from $793.00 to $7,000.00 a month.  That is almost 1000% growth. Incredible. 

She also believes that blogging and making money online does not need to be icky or spammy. Her philosophy is to create content that helps people.  Doing it this way – everyone wins.

One of her very first money-making posts was her tips for a Themed Wedding on a budget. 

One of her biggest saves at her own wedding was to order her flowers from 50flowers.  By doing this, she paid $300 vs. the $4000.00 she would have paid with a traditional florist.

In her blog, she shares her Step-by-step portrayal of her $15,000.00 budget-themed wedding.  As Game of Thrones fans, Curtis and I thought this was really cool. 

ETSY STORE

One of the other ways Julie has succeeding in making passive income is through her Etsy Store. 

Her first ideas were for bachelorette parties and she sold temporary tattoos for the bride and her party.  

She would get the tattoos from temporarytatooes.com, then resell them on Etsy. 

But that became a little cumbersome and so she wanted to try printables.  

Printables are PDF files that can be duplicated over and over and be downloaded thousands of time. 

Skills needed:  NONE! 

She says she is not creative, artsy or into bachelorette parties! 

She encourages anyone with a better idea, to do it! So, if you have some fun ideas, what are you waiting for? 

To promote your shop, Julie shares two secrets: 

1. You need to get your first purchase and five-star review, and 

2. Go after specific keywords.

OUR REVIEW OF JULIE’S COURSES

 

If you have listened to our show for any length of time, you know that Curtis and I are always on the lookout for GOOD side-hustles.  Not just for ourselves, but for all of our listeners.  As Julie said in this episode, and something that we firmly believe as well, there are only so many cuts you can make to your budget.

At some point – there are no more cuts. What then?  Well, increasing your income is an unlimited way to infuse money into your budget.  You are only limited by what you believe you can achieve.

From our own experience we can tell you, deciding to start a blog is fairly easy – but monetizing is not – if you don’t know what you are doing.  It is hard and there are so many moving parts.  This is why we support Julie and Cody’s courses.

They both have seen really great success by blogging and creating other streams of income via Etsy and Freelancing.  

What is SUPER special what Julie and Cody have put together is that they have done this to help others and firmly believe that the sharing of information is what leads to success. 

AND REMEMBER…Julie created a blog that produces $40,000 a year in income! She has obviously done something right. 

If you would like to learn from Julie and Cody – these courses are totally worth and you WILL learn what you need to be successful. 

All that is left is for you to make a move…
