So I am 10 months into reporting my online income and it is exciting to see how things have progressed since January as this is my second highest month yet. See my previous income reports here.

Before I get into the numbers, I have some exciting news….

I Got a Book Deal!

A publisher was looking for a financial author to write a book titled, How to Retire Early and they picked me to write it! I want to make a quick note to say that I am not retired yet, however, I have had the privilege of meeting several people throughout my life that have retired early. In the end it boils down to a simple mathematical equation, you just need to have enough income producing assets to cover your lifestyle that you want when you retire. I already have the first chapter done and it is looking to be published and on shelves in retailers next year!

So without further delay, here is the info from October.

You Can Make Money Online Too

If you want to give making money online a shot, you have to start somewhere. The first step is to create your own blog. The awesome thing is that it is super affordable to start a blog. You can get one going today for as little as $3.95 a month by clicking on this special offer here.

To help make the process even easier, I created a tutorial on how to start a blog in less than ten minutes which will show you everything that you need to do in order to get your blog up and running.

It was just over three years ago that I was able to quit my day job because I had a blog on the side. If you’re interested in making some extra money online with very little start-up costs, why not start a blog today and get the ball rolling?

Have you ever made money online? If so, how did that work out for you?
