January 2012 Income Report

Welcome to my January income report. My goal of this report is to hold me accountable and keep track of my progress to financial freedom. My passive income will come from real estate investments and internet marketing.

This report will continue to evolve as I start generating passive income.

General happenings in the month…

This report isn’t as delayed as the December one, but here it is anyway! Income wise, it was a good month for my real estate services as I had a commission cheque come in. I’ve also started to heavily advertise for rent-to-own leads for my side business. The tough thing about real estate is the fees that you pay as a Realtor! So the leads and deals have to keep on coming to pay those off!

In terms of internet marketing, I am starting to see little income come in consistently from the couple sites I’ve setup…so this tells me that it is possible! Over the past year I guess I’ve been testing to see how I want to make money online and I’m favour of being an Amazon affiliate. I’ll be creating several more niche sites and scaling it to see if I can earn more.

December 2011 Income Report

Welcome to my December income report. My goal of this report is to hold me accountable and keep track of my progress to financial freedom. My passive income will come from real estate investments and internet marketing.

This report will continue to evolve as I start generating passive income.

General happenings in the month…

Much delayed report, but these will still be reported, even though it’s super late. I may branch off this so that real estate and internet marketing are separate, but we’ll see.

It’s already the end of January, and December was full of family and fun, so I’ll just get right to the report.

November 2011 Income Report

Welcome to my November income report. My goal of this report is to hold me accountable and keep track of my progress to financial freedom. My passive income will come from real estate investments and internet marketing.

This report will continue to evolve as I start generating passive income.

General happenings in the month…

Well November went by just ask quick as October…I realized I didn’t post October report (it was already drafted and ready to go). I just posted it and now here’s November!

At the beginning of the month, made a road trip to Chicago for the first time for a friend’s birthday. Great city and great food. Here’s a pic of some famous deep dish pizza we had – just amazing!!

I also participated in Movember and this is the very first time I actually grew out (a very ugly one) mustache and goatee. The wife didn’t like it too much, but it’s for a good cause to raise awareness for.

My kitchen renovations are almost complete as well, just a few more pieces that we’re waiting to order before finalizing it, but it is fully functional. Living in the new house is going good so far…coming from a condo, there’s so much more space than I realized!

October 2011 Income Report

Welcome to my October income report. My goal of this report is to hold me accountable and keep track of my progress to financial freedom. My passive income will come from real estate investments and internet marketing.

This report will continue to evolve as I start generating passive income.

General happenings in the month…

October was pretty crazy and so has been November, so this is a late report! I’m in the final stages of my move and a bunch of repairs and renovations have been made to the new house. Excited to finally settle in and call it ‘home’. It’s been just over a year since I got married and can’t believe how fast it’s gone. My parents and the in-laws are already asking when the baby is coming! Not anytime soon I told them! This is one of the main reasons I want to set myself up for success with passive income…so that I can spend more time with family instead of worrying about a “job”.

I also officially turned 30 in the month of October…which gives me exactly 5 years left to hit my passive income goal. The “wins” I feel I have accomplished so far are not income based, but knowledge based. I will be applying that knowledge over the next few months aggressively and the income will follow.

September 2011 Income Report

Welcome to my September income report. My goal of this report is to hold me accountable and keep track of my progress to financial freedom. My passive income will come from real estate investments and internet marketing.

This report will continue to evolve as I start generating passive income.

What happened in the month?

September just flew by for me. I sold the downtown condo I was living in and moved in with the in-laws for the time being while our new place is waiting to close.

Again, real estate transactions have been taking up a lot of my time which has left me little time for internet marketing. I will update sites and rankings below.

The real estate brokerage I’m with holds these “face your fears” challenges for the members and this time it was walking outside on the CN Tower. It’s called the Edgewalk and you walk around the building at about 1,200 feet in the air. Pretty exhilarating experience – scary at first, but you actually get quite comfortable.

I receive my 2 commission cheques from my deals I closed and it felt GOOD to see them knowing what I’ve done over the past year or so.  It equated to more than a gross month’s pay from my regular job, and in probably 1/4 of the hours spent.

I also decided to sign up for an internet marketing mentor program, read about it below.

But for now, let’s break down the income.
