“This money didn’t come quick, I stacked it up gradually“
– Gucci Mane, Club Hoppin
I did it. It took me over six months of hard work but I did it. Last night I made $104.38 in one day off my various web ventures. Between Fiverr, blogging, eBooks, and a few other activities; I made over a hundred dollars in “passive income.”
All it took was six months of grind to do so.
During that time, I worked on my side business almost every night. While I wasn’t pulling all nighters or doing back breaking labor, my efforts were still time consuming.
Early on it was frustrating because I couldn’t make money. It took me all of January to earn $1.00 off Amazon Affiliates. In February I managed to make $9.00. When March rolled around I’d given up on becoming a professional blogger and started some other little web ventures. I was still reliant on Amazon Affiliates, but managed to make $17.00 a week. It was tough work and I was often disappointed to see Amazon getting hundreds while I only made a few bucks.
In March I wrote an eBook. In June another. In July a third. The ones I penned over summer were done under a false name. I’d data mine archaic websites, rewrite what valuable content they had, and make a booklet. I earned enough to buy myself a leather jacket, watch, jeans, and a vacation.
In September I started to consistently make money off my Fiverr gigs. Towards the end of the month I was doing really well for myself. Then my review business took a hit. I scrambled and restructured.
Now, in the first week of October, I finally broke the coveted $100 a day benchmark. Like Tim Ferriss claimed, it only took me four hours of actual work to do so.* Today I’m finishing up a little project I started over the weekend. I think you’ll like it…
* Not including the previous six months it took to get there.
