How I Earned $66.74 In Passive Income In June 2019
I can’t believe how quickly the last six months have flown by!
Because we’re midway through the year, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting, and it’s wild to see how things have changed, and especially how quickly it’s all happened. Back in January, I was working a job that made me miserable, trying to build my business into what I knew it could be. I had no idea that three weeks later, I’d be out of that job and working my business full time.
But I made a commitment, back in January.
And in June, that commitment started paying off more than I could have ever imagined.
June 2019 Income Report: Thinking About The Next Half Of The Year
The best part about the beginning a new month is that you get to reflect on your successes from last month, think about the things you want to work on, and commit to your intentions for the next month.
And what’s REALLY exciting about the month of July, is not only is it a new month, but July is also the beginning of the second half of 2019.
This is the best time to think back to those commitments you made about your online business in January and recommit to them. A lot can happen between January and July, and a lot more can happy from July to December.
What are you going to commit to, that is going to make the biggest impact on your business?
Want more on recommitting to your online business intentions and kicking off the second half of 2019 with a bang? Check out Episode 102 of 10 Minutes Before Dinner.

Siteground: $50 – I am an affiliate for Siteground because it’s my favorite web hosting platform. The longer I use them, the more I like them, primarily because I have seen so many people talk about all the hosting issues they have with other platforms, and very rarely do I ever hear complaints about Siteground.
I use Siteground to host both my websites, including one that I transferred over from the WordPress dot com platform. Siteground made the transition seamless, and it made it a no-brainer for me when I decided to create Quest for $47 through them as well. You can read about the Six Reasons I Host My Websites on Siteground (And You Should Too).
You can get hosting (AND a free domain) for $3.95/month with Siteground by clicking here.
Bundle Sales: $15 – To celebrate the 100th Episode of 10 Minutes Before Dinner (watch it here), I decided to compile a series of 15 of my favorite videos all about Content Creation – the Content Creation Video Bundle (catchy title, huh?). It made a sale while I was sleeping, which is one of the most fun parts of passive income. Earning money while you’re out like a light. That’s the goal.
And when you make one sale, the best part is knowing that you can scale it too.
Missed out on the bundle? You can still get all 15 videos in the Content Creation Series, plus three bonus videos all about mindset for just $20. Click here.
Google Adsense: $1.73 – This last month brought in a little less than the month before, but I also had less traffic, so it’s kind of a wash. I’m debating whether or not to continue having ads on my website, but until such time as I make a decision, they’re just going to stay put.
Other Sources: $0.01 – Check out below for more on the penny I picked up while at physical therapy.
June 2019 Income Report: The Actual Best Month In My Business
While my income in the June 2019 Income Report is less than what I reported in the May 2019 Income Report, this is STILL my all-time best month in business!
It’s been a long time in coming, going from a few hundred dollars here and there to actual four-figures, and I am SO excited to celebrate that.
Remember, it’s SO important to celebrate all your wins.
And while it is important to focus on building passive income streams for your business, so you’re not trading time for money, if you’re looking for a quicker cash injection into your business, then creating a 1-1 coaching offer is definitely where to go. When you offer to coach 1-1, you’re giving your clients a ton more access to you than someone on your email list, or in one of your courses.
And from a financial standpoint, you can charge more. Even if you’re a brand new coach, as long as you are confident in your offer and your capability of guiding your potential clients to their desired outcome, then you will be able to charge a premium for your one to one time and efforts.

June 2019 Income Report: Bundle The Content You Already Have
Remember, your audience is looking for the things that are going to make their life EASIER.
Also remember that your audience does not always see all the things that you post, all the time.
Bundling content that you already have is a fantastic way to create a passive income stream to your business. It’s on a lower end from a pricing standpoint, but you can create an ebook with a series of related blog posts, or a series of videos you’ve already done, or a package of templates you’ve already created.
You can sell it to your list, and also to your audience as a fast-action, limited time sale, to get a little bit of a cash injection into your business, which you can reinvest in things like ads or a new coach, or a new course (so long as you finish all the other ones you’ve already signed up for. Don’t be a serial online course buyer like I used to be).
June 2019 Income Report: A Friendly Reminder That Money Is Everywhere
Remember that penny I found while dog walking back in October?
In case you missed it, you can check out the full story in the October 2018 Income Report, but it was at a time that I was working very hard on my mindset, especially when it comes to money. Instead of ignoring a penny I found on the ground while I was dog walking, I picked it up, and then thanked the universe for sending it to me—and there was no effort taken on my part to get it.
June featured another moment where I encountered an abandoned penny on the ground. I was at physical therapy and doing one of my least favorite (yet most effective) stretches, that pretty much puts me upside and twisting my back into knots while also stretching my hamstrings.
And while I was turned over, I saw a penny abandoned by the wall, and remembering that time in October, I knew I had to pick it up before I left.
Like the first time, it’s a friendly reminder that abundance is ALWAYS there, and you have to look for it, no matter what the size is. Be as excited when you book a $1000/month client as you do when you find a penny on the street. And when you look at life like money is absolutely everywhere, you start to get really creative at finding it. Open your mind and you have no idea how money will make its way to you.
