February Income Report

It’s that time again! I have gotten a handful of emails asking when I’d get my income report up (sorry for my tardiness, things have been crazy!) but it’s finally time to publish my February income report! I feel like I say this every month (and I probably do) but February was crazy, like really crazy. I found out I was moving to New York at the same time I was launching a course, I found an apartment – didn’t get it, found another apartment – didn’t get it, and am prepping to move to NYC to live in airbnb’s until I can…

The Ultimate Guide to Self Employment in College.

When people ask me what I do, I usually don’t come right out and say, “Oh, I’m a blogger.” Usually I’ll say something along the lines of, “I’m self-employed” or “I run a small business.” Most of the population doesn’t realize that blogging is a viable career option, so I try and ease them into the idea. As of now, I don’t think a single adult outside of my close circle has taken me seriously when I told them that I am a self-employed blogger.
