4. Start A Blog
Starting a blog is a great way to make money online.
If you are new to the blogging world and have no ideas how much money a successful blogger is earning per month.
Here is a good example of how much a successful blogger can earn (Do note that he is not the only one):
Pat Flynn – Last 12 months Income Report – $2,171,652.55
I just have to mention Pat Flynn not because he has an impressive income report but because I was there when he first started in 2008.
The difference between Pat Flynn and I was while he was building his dream, I was just standing on the sideline thinking should I or should I not. Now 10 years down the road, he has made it and I am still the same. 🙁
Are you like me 10 years ago, standing on the sideline thinking whether or not to start a blog? Calculating the cost and wonder is it worth it, asking will “I” be successful?
If you have a dream of starting a blog, don’t be like me ten years ago. Take action today – start a blog now. You will never know you might be the next Pat Flynn in ten years time.
