I have a 9-5 job that I adore. ADORE.

But I have plans for CreationDepot too (my side business… that I’ve had since 2008).

So I gave up planning on a typical year, which is why you’re getting this nugget of a podcast in what is nearly March instead of December like everyone else.

I don’t know about you all but December and even January is an absolute mad house around here. With Christmas and New Years, Winter Break, and kid activities (and vacations). So I gave up and said ya know what? We’ll do this when life’s not crazy instead of cramming it all in right now.

And that’s what I did. I think everyone should do this. I had so much more clarity this go around.

In this episode I talk about my income goals:

  1. My 9-5 job
  2. Selling Digital Products
  3. YouTube
  4. Webinars
  5. Patreon (!?)
  6. Websites/Web Clients (the actual freelance work)
  7. Selling crud I don’t need while also stop continuing to pay for things I don’t need

As always, thanks for the support! Couldn’t do it without you all!

Show Notes/Outline

It’s all well and good to make goals but I wanted to share the “how” of how I’m going to reach it. The number that’s my goal is really just a result of what I’m willing to and want to try.
Basically I have my 9-5 job that I looove. And that’s also my safety net as freelance work can be a real roller coaster.
    1. 9-5 job I adore as a UI/UX Designer .
      1. This one I can’t share how much I make but it’s still important to show it because this eats up a lot of my time, and contributes a lot to my income.
      2. It also pays for things like Healthcare for my whole family, retirement, life insurance… all those goodies.
    2. Digital Products
      1. 4 templates per month – 48 mini products by Dec 31st. – $3 each; goal selling 10 units additional per month; 30/60/90/120/150/180/210/240/270/300/330/360
        1. By the end of the year making $360/month off digital products that I never have to touch again.
    3. YouTube
      1. Working up to $500/month by the end of the year – Was doing about $120/month before I fell off
    4. Webinars
      1. $97/each, once a month
      2. Super Simple Social Media Plan
        1. 10 people – $970 months1-3 = 2910
        2. 25 people – $2425 4-6 = 7275
        3. 50 people – $4850 7-9 = 14550
        4. 100 people – $9700 10-12 = 29100
        5. = $53,835/year
    5. Patreon
      1. Behind the scenes of marketing
      2. $5/month
      3. Not very serious about it right now but I wanted to get it going so it can start building.
    6. Websites/Web Clients
      1. This is freelance work, which can vary WIDELY. $500-$2000/month, but I used to have $10k months when I was serious about it. Followed by 3 months of nothing…
    7. Sell crap I don’t need
      1. Get out of doubled up items like Dropbox AND Google Drive
      2. Reduce my trash bill to come once per week
      3. THE SEA OF KIDS CLOTHES (reclaim my spare bedroom)
