How This Blogger Organically Grew Her Facebook Page to 100K in Five Short Months

How This Blogger Organically Grew Her Facebook Page to 100K in Five Short MonthsTell us a little bit about yourself and your blogging journey.

Way back in October 2013, a good friend of mine started a little blog on Blogger. I knew nothing at all about blogging, but I was a SAHM at the time and thought “That looks fun! I should make a blog too!” Little did I know how much I would absolutely fall in love with it in such a short amount of time.

Unfortunately, that blog wasn’t really ever going to go anywhere, since I had no idea what I was doing when I first started it. So the following year, in August 2014, I completely shut it down, rebranded and relaunched as Equipping Godly Women and have been busy growing EGW ever since!

Now, I’m a wife, a mother to three little ones (ranging from six to six months), and a full-time blogger. I love it! It’s truly the perfect job for this point in my life.

Do you have any special training?

No, not really. I do have a degree in elementary education, which I’m sure helps, and I started freelance writing right around the time I started blogging, but I don’t have any special training in business or marketing or social media or anything like that. I’ve just learned everything along the way.

How are you monetizing your blog?

Right now, I’m using a combination of ads, affiliate links, sponsored posts and my own products. I do offer consulting and freelance writing services as well, but on a very limited basis. (more…)

How to Make Money and Empower Women With Handbags

How to Make Money and Empower Women With HandbagsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

This past week I had the pleasure of checking out the ClaudiaG home business opportunity. The ClaudiaG Collection consists of leather handbags, chic jewelry and accessories – so if you love fashion you’ll want to check this out.

In fact, I took the Luminous Tote on my Cancun trip and I received so many compliments on it. It’s a great size for a beach bag or every day use. You could even use it as a laptop bag – it’s so versatile.

So tell you a little bit more about this home business opportunity we have ClaudiaG’s founder, Claudia Gutierrez.

Hi, I’m Claudia. I’m originally from Colombia and have lived in Houston, Texas, for over 15 years. Upon completing my studies in Business Administration at St. Thomas University, I got my MBA in 2004 and accepted a position with JP Morgan Chase, starting a successful career in banking.

I was always curious about activities that included design and craftsmanship. Growing up in a region of the Colombian Caribbean infused with the natural beauty of the sea and its tropical climate and inspired by the creative process of the artisans and the richness of the colors and materials, I naturally evolved to handbag and accessory design.

I began selling to women around me, and based on their fantastic reaction I soon realized I could offer the same opportunity to others as a way of gaining financial independence without sacrificing the responsibilities and joys of family life and community involvement. (more…)

ComfyEarrings: The Idea That Turned into a Lucrative Home Business

ComfyEarrings: The Idea That Turned into a Lucrative Home BusinessTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.

Probably the most surprising thing is that I didn’t set out to become an entrepreneur. I wanted to be a freelance writer, but owning a business selling a physical product, like earrings, never crossed my mind.

Instead, I just wanted comfortable earrings for myself. Then, once I had the first prototypes, the business took on a life of its own, so to speak. Friends started asking for their own “Comfy Earrings” and little-by-little my husband, Nick, and I developed the idea into a business.

How did you fund your business? 

It was crucial to us to test the idea before taking out any debt. We didn’t even know if anyone would want ComfyEarrings, so we were cautious at first.

Because of that, we started out really lean with just a few hundred dollars in inventory, which we pulled from our 9-to-5 job paychecks and freelance income.

Beyond that, we only needed a very basic website built on WordPress and some shipping supplies. I created the website myself, so the only cost there was the domain, hosting, and theme. As far as shipping supplies, we keep the cost low by buying in small quantities on Amazon. (more…)

How This Entrepreneur Was Able to Earn $150K in 4 Short Months

How This Entrepreneur Was Able to Earn $150K in 4 Short MonthsYou created two separate 6-figure businesses by the age of 23 — tell us about how you got started.

Hi there. Thanks! Yes, my name is Amanda Goldman-Petri and I am known as the “Work Smarter, Not Harder” Marketing Coach because I believe in using leverage and automation to allow for you to make as much money as possible with as little energy as possible. I was checking my numbers recently and realized that in 2016, I am guaranteed to make 6-figures even if I don’t sell another thing at all for the entire year. That is the power of the predictable and passive income that results from working smarter, not harder.

But the truth is, it wasn’t always this way in my life or my business. I grew up poor in a crappy part of Baltimore, Maryland with a drug-addicted father, who was later replaced by an abusive stepfather. I buried my head in books with the dedication to become a straight-A honors student, so that I could escape my hometown and all of the painful memories it held for me. When I got into Johns Hopkins University – the #14 university in the world – I thought I had made it. Instead, the summer before I entered, I was hit by an 80-year-old man driving a mini-van at over 50mph while I was walking across the street. I nearly died.

I spent a week in shock trauma. Months learning to walk again. Years coping with PTSD.

That was the moment that changed everything and led me here. I realized that if I had died, I wouldn’t have really lived and I wouldn’t have left a legacy. (more…)

My Journey to Making $40K a Month as a Full-Time Blogger

My Journey to Making $40K a Month as a Full-Time Blogger Initially, I interviewed Michelle back in December of 2013. Since that time she’s had AMAZING success with her blog. So I thought it would be fun to catch up with her and find out how she did it and what’s next for this professional blogger.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blogging journey.

I started blogging in August of 2011. Back then, I started my blog just as a way to connect with others who are doing something similar to me (paying off debt) and so that I could keep track of my financial progress. I started it purely as a hobby and I never thought that I would ever make any money online. I actually never even thought about making money online or blogging full-time once.

Before I knew it, my business was growing before my eyes. I didn’t mean for it to become my business, but it turned into something that I still love today. After around two years of blogging, I left my day job to blog full-time. It has now been around 2.5 years since I left my previous job.

I now try to focus on my blog as much as I can. I don’t write for many others anymore and that is so that I can continue to grow my own blog and increase my income. It’s been the best decision ever for me! I now have a book on the way, my blog is growing faster than ever, and I am in the very beginning stages of creating my own course as well. (more…)
