Thoughts on my October 2016 Income Report
Another month gone. Seriously, where does the time go? I started this journey in June and it really does seem like that was just yesterday.
I didn't increase my monthly earnings too much this month. Actually, this month was a true lesson in "don't let yourself get scammed".
It really does suck to be scammed.
I'm not letting myself get too hung up on it, though. It's all apart of the experience. I AM, however, making sure it never happens again.
I won't bore you with all the details, but I will say this: upfront deposits are no longer negotiable for me. I've been a bit too forgiving and passive on this front. No more.

Anyway, lesson learned. Just keep swimming.
So, that was my "thorn" for the month. Here are a couple roses.
- I spent the month networking with other successful freelancers. Shout out to Brent Jones who graciously allowed me to guest post on his site and interviewed me for his show "Better Freelancing". How cool is that? Seriously, check him out. He's doing really awesome things.
- The flexibility of my freelancing career allowed me to make the hop, skip and jump back over the ocean to visit my brand new NEPHEW for two weeks in Budapest, Hungary. He's the most amazing little human being ever and I'm totally in love with him. I'm an aunt!! How cool is that?!
- I met some awesome freelancers who contributed to my blog with stellar guest posts. Check out Cassie Owoc's guest post on overcoming your freelance fears and also Melanie Kernodle's guest post on writing blogs clients will love. P.S. you can contribute to my blog, too! Just get in touch and we'll talk details.

I'm still offering my FREE freelance email course, which will teach you (if you're interested) everything you need to do to begin earning your own freelance income online. I got to $1000 in under 90 days. No, $1000 isn't a ton of money. Actually, a lot of people make fun of me for it. Good thing my skin is getting a bit thicker with each month because that extra $1000 per month allows me to work wherever, whenever. Freedom is important, and it's only the beginning.
Enough banter - if you're interested in getting started, let me know. There are no strings attached, seriously.
