As I mentioned in my last post, I’m no longer going to list how many of each product sold. However, I can say that this month I sold one Masterclass, four CBT tripwires, three social skills tripwires, and one Phobia Free workbook. It was a pretty quiet month. In November I’m going to be fixing up my opt-in sequences so hopefully that will lead to more people purchasing.
Total Etsy Revenue: $112.10 ($207.60)
Most of these sales were for my gratitude worksheets or bundles.

I switched to the Teachable professional plan. I was required to do this because of the number of products I have and some changes they made. However, it will also allow me to set up an affiliate program.

Net blog income: $3317.15 ($1602.45)
Thoughts about this month’s income report:
Highest month to date! I just wish it wasn’t mostly due to Pinterest traffic to two blog posts. However, this means that I have so much room in so many areas to increase revenue. Just need to figure out HOW.
Did I Meet my Goals for September
I had not set goals for September other than keeping up with the usual tasks.
Goals for October:
I created a 90 day plan until the end of the year. For October my goals are:
- Create a Betterhelp launch sequence to run in October
- Create a Masterclass launch sequence to run in November
- Create a product for the Holiday Abundance Bundle for the Becoming Boss Mastermind
