March has been a month of realising what I can really do and how much I was over stretching myself over the last few months.  I am happy and sad it has taken me this long to realise this but at the same time this is my own learning curve and everyone takes different time before they click.

As many people know I am stubborn in many aspects and think I am on the right path, I will listen to people who have logic behind their argument but I need some proof of it at the same time.

With all that said, I am now focusing back on Kindle publishing and knuckling down to bring the business up to a level it should be at.

 

Amazon Kindle Business

 

In March I started to gain traction for my eventual goal.  This came from the realization of what I actually needed to do and how I was suppose to progress in my business career.  Gone are my days of trying to do many businesses at once and now I am only doing small manageable amounts, that way I will know exactly what I need to do without confusing myself too much.

I am happy that my efforts are now starting to pay off with an increase in royalties, this has been one of my best months in quite a while.  I am starting to gain traction and it shouldn’t be long before I get to where I want to be at.

 

Here is a breakdown of how much I made

Kindle Paid Royalties: $554.26 (Includes US, UK & Euro Royalties) = (Increase +$42.90)

Kindle Unlimited Royalties: $66.39 (14’126 pages read x $0.0047 per page) = (Increase +$10.11)

Create Space Royalties: $980.87 (Includes US, UK & Euro Royalties) = (Increase +$211.26)

ACX Audible Royalties: $181.26 + $25 Bounty = $206.26 = (Decrease -$77.33) (February Royalties)

AMAZON KINDLE ROYALTY TOTAL: $1807.78 = (Increase +$186.94)

I feel this was a good improvement on last month, it’s not the place I want to be but I am progressing to my final goal of $10’000 a month.  Already, one book I produced in March has made its ROI, so that is fantastic, I love having a business where my ROI is so quick and I think Kindle publishing is fantastic for this.

The one thing I know is my journey could have failed and I wouldn’t be earning the money I am now without Luca’s Kindle course, it really did just cut out all of the BS and gave me exactly what I needed.  The reason I haven’t achieved what I should is because I was trying to learn from outside methods thinking I could get more answers but always came back to his course.

When I started my journey over a year ago I really wish I had someone to guide me, even after I have learned something I always have questions, I took mentoring from Luca as I wanted to understand his system more.  With that said I want you to succeed so I am giving 30 minutes free mentoring (Worth $100) when you go through my link.

Passive Income: Affiliate Commissions

I write my blog because I love to write things which are on my mind, it keeps me from telling people around me which may become annoying after a while.  It is like a therapy for me and something which I enjoy.  It gives me something to do and gives me focus.  At the same time it has allowed me to earn a second stream of income while helping people who have or will experience similar things to what I write about.  Hopefully, I can help and inspire people

I like everyone to succeed and to do this I have written a beginners guide on how to start a blog.  Click on the blue text to learn how – start your own blog.

I have done blogs in the past but didn’t really take them seriously, I wanted to learn how I could make a bit of money from something I enjoy doing and Earnest Affiliate helped me do this.  It helped me understand the foundations to creating a  successful blog to where I am right now.  I believe it is a great course to get you started.  The course has allowed me to make 100 times what I invested which is not bad in my opinion

Grand Total Passive Income

I am happy with what I achieved in March, it feels like an improvement and now I know which direction I am headed, it doesn’t feel bad to be earning what I am and knowing that this amount can be increased as I move forward.  Saying that this month has seen an increase of over $1000 in passive income.  Everything is a journey and I know the journey is going steady and it is only a matter of time before I hit my target.  I believe anyone can achieve financial freedom if they know which direction they are moving in and have a plan on how to get there.
