MMO Monthly Report January 2012

This is my first Make Extra Money Online Monthly Report. In the past, I was hesitate to talk about my Online Income. I am not boosting about how “much” I do. Indeed, it’s open and great to let others know and keep each other motivated. It’s not a huge money. Anyway, it’s an extra income and it’s do-able to do it part-time around the clock.

MMO Monthly Report January 2012

I’m proud of my accomplishment and my hard-working pays off. Indeed, it’s not “passive income” as I was sold to. Everything takes hard-work and dedication. It’s totally not a Get Rich Quick and Make Money Online Scam.

When I document this, I found that this is not only about how I was doing last month, it’s also about what I have learned and how to grow myself and the online income on monthly basis. Sometimes, people just care about your numbers. Indeed, it’s my journey and hope my learned lessons help you as well.

My Inspiration

I got to know Pat Flynn back to early 2010 and was very inspired and “jealous” by his famous income monthly reports.

I know it is possible and finally I have my own first one publicly online.

Please note that I would only document my Online Income. Indeed, my full-time and offline income are non-disclosure (Everyone is different.)

Why am I reporting this publicly?

I was inspired and thought it’s impossible. I wanna share that nothing is impossible. Taking baby steps will get you one mile closer to your goal whatever it is. I’m not here to boost my “success” or telling you that I am successful. I’m by way too far from it yet.

Also I’m here to have you keep me accountable. I’m growing and wanna contribute back to this MMO world. I was spammed and fooled many many times. I spent hundred and thousands helping others Make Money Online before I made my first penny. 🙂 I am here to inspire and share what it works or not. I love to talk about my failed lessons so it would save your time.

“Fool people learn from mistakes; Smart people learn from instruction” For me, I learn much more from mistakes and become even smarter.

To structure this a little bit and help myself reaching my annual goal. It would be like a monthly and quarterly check about my progress for myself.

Show me the Number

My Total Online Income in Jan 2012 is $1203.95

1. Amazon Affiliate Income ($1,014.07)

Amazon Affiliate Income Jan 2012
Amazon Affiliate Income Jan 2012

As you may know, there are tons of ways making extra money online. For me, focusing one would get you the best return so you could diversify and move on other venture.

I was working hard and lucky enough to break in a few niches and have a decent Amazon Affiliate income to motivate me and keep me going. Yes, I started with less $1 Amazon Income back to May 2011 as you could see from here:

This month is “disappointing” comparing to the last Nov and Dec 2011 – which is expected. I collected tons of traffic data and just don’t have time to analysis them all. I gonna break in many big niches this year and hope I could reproduce and even exceed my “success”.

I’m proud to “shipped” closed to 500 items via Amazon. I couldn’t get to 8% commission rate, it’s a number game and I’m confident that I hit again. What concerns me is that the web traffic of some of my authority sites is slowing and there were not many orders as in Nov & Jan last year which is totally expected.

In Feb, I plan to add more content and build more backlinks to my niche sites and build a few new ones. On-going, I learn about new product niches and try to compete in some strong ones.

2. Adsense Income ($129.30)

I have been following many big boys in this Adsense Income Niche and plan to play a catch up game on monthly-basis. Indeed, Adsense is one of my favorite MMO business model as it’s simple and straight-forward as is.

My Jan Adsense income dropped as expected as one of my income sites is a product-related one. The traffic dropped significantly in Jan that hurts. The good side is that I have definitely two winning niche sites making me $100 Adsense income. As I said, the first $100 is always difficult to meet. It took me couple months to get my first Google Check.

Adsense Income Jan 2012
Adsense Income Jan 2012

Why can’t I duplicate the formula and have 10x? Yes, I’m planning to grow my Adsense income to $1000 a month level. It will get me to 1/3 of my 2012 Extra Money Income Goal.

This is a number game. I have about 5 sites having traffic and Adsense income stream. Why can’t I have 20 or even 50 Adsense sites?

Stayed tune about my update. I gonna document my how-to and the whole process. Indeed, it’s just a bunch of business processes to build and rank Adsense sites.

3. Affiliate Income ($60.58)

I only promote what I have and works for me. (I own some products and I don’t even promote and mention about that.) Simple because I have been asked for many times and I know what I promote would help others to save time and be more productive as I do in my business. Only if you take actions and take advantage of the benefits, it would just pay it off.

Many times, we are promoted to various stuff for features. It really takes time to digest to get the “benefits”. There are tons of Training, Software, and services out there claiming that they could help you to make money online. I was sold and spent tons of money on them; indeed, I still do and spend on monthly basis. Now, I know what I need, I get and grab the benefits right the way.

Education is priceless. How much did you spend in your high school, colleges, and continual education in your profession? Committing to learn is one of my key success factors.

I truly believe in Niche Profit Course (this is a killing deal comparing to $97 original price when I got it) which is my blueprint making online income with Amazon Affiliate.

Here, I wanna say THANK you to those who trust and buy through my Affiliate link. My email support and follow-up is your bonus. Chris has great support on this training as you may know, but you could ping me for any help too.

For me, TIME is MONEY. If I didn’t take actions and implement what I have learned in reading blogs, training, and experiments, I wouldn’t have had my 5-digit online income in 2011.

My 2012 Goal Progress

1. Making $100 a day (In Progress)

I’m 1/3 reaching my monthly goal which is about $3000. In order to scale up to reach my goal. I gonna build many Amazon Affiliate and Adsense niche sites on monthly basis.

It would take time to do market research, build the site, add content, and drive traffic to. In a few months, I should see some site traffic growth. As I said, it’s a number game. If you build 10 sites, you will see 1-2 winner ones. The more you build, it would just be more effective and better.

2. I put in 2 hours average ONLY a day (Χ)

This goal is definitely failing. January was very distracting. I am working on this business part-time. Squeezing out 2-3 hours a day is not easy. Sometimes I am just exhausted by 10pm after all day work and taking care of the kids.

Some days, I worked more than 3 hours; sometimes, I only spend an hour or so.

  • First week – I was thinking about my annual goal and busy reading other blogger goals
  • Second week – I spent a lot of time to design my daily and weekly schedule. At least I finished buidling niche site
  • Third week – I built another niche site and trying to catch up my schedule
  • Forth week – My first Guest post was posted online by Chris. I was busy to catch up the comments and traffic from the guest post http://www.makemoneyontheinternet.com/4000-month-with-amazon-in-under-1-year-student-results/
  • Fifth week – this is very non-productive as I was busy with my full time work and life after work. You may say it’s nice to take a week off and a break online. 🙂

I need to figure out how to focus on my core business – niche site building and stay away from social media and life distraction. Everyday, I should be working on something that is growing and driving my business forward.

3. I will spend $500 a month on this business (Χ)

In Jan, I was going to spend majority of my expense on article outsourcing and backlinking via Fiverr.com, but it failed.

I spent totally about $333.17 (my best estimate including new domain names from Namecheap, Hostgator Web Hosting, a few WSOs about niches and training, UAW, Fiverr, and Article outsourcing)

I would roll over $200 to Feb Expense and outsourcing big (I need to focus on this as it’s more time-consuming than I planned). Sometimes, it’s not about how much you spend, what concerns me is what I spend really worthy. Does it save your time, or just buy information / education that you can’t digest and have return?

4. Writing a Blog Post once a week (√)

I wrote 4 articles as meeting my post schedule. Indeed, blogging is not my strength and I take longer to fresh out an idea and publish a post. Content is the king. My traffic grew up a little bit in Jan. It was awesome to meet other niche site guys and we are in the community following Spencer, Adsense Flippers, and Smart Passive Income etc. It’s encouraging and nice learning from each other.

Blogging is fun and I meet great people in this IMT community. I feel energetic receiving reader emails and bounce ideas back and for.

As a blog traffic, I’m thankful to get closed to 800 in Jan. Thank you for all your support. My first guest post was up on Jan 24th and I had some traffic peak that day.

5. I will have an Income/Expense Statement every month (√)

I managed to stream line and only have one checking / paypal account to pay out my expenses. It’s easier to watch out how I spend and my income stream in. It’s all about Cash-flow management.

6. I read a business book every month (√)

I’m proud finishing Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Jarv Eker  and I have a few takes to share here:

  • Everyone has different money blueprint and they could be from our family, past experience, and childhood. Mine one is different from yours.
  • Rich people think differently. There are 17 mindsets mentioned in the book and my favorite ones are:
  • 5. Rich people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles.
  • 13. Rich people focus on their net worth. Poor people focus on their working income.
  • 17. Rich people constantly learn and grow. Poor people think they already know.
  • After reading the book, I know I have Millionaire mindset. I gonna revisit this and see if I have adapted “new thinking”.
Midas Touch
Midas Touch

In Feb, I am reading Midas Touch by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Donald J. Trump

Midas Touch is all about Successful Entrepreneurship. Are you curious about why some entrepreneurs win, and some fail?

If you know Robet Kiyosaki, probably you know his Rich Dad Poor Dad Book. One of my favorite books all time.

 

 

I feel great about Feb and it is going to be better regarding to productivity and my business direction. I “worry” that my niche site web traffic would slow down and can’t keep my monthly income as 4-digit. Anyway, I should focus on my daily operation, maintain my revenue, and grow from there.

Fear won’t help you move forward. Focus, be proactive, and hard-working and it’s the way to go!

How did you do in Jan? Do  you have any plan for Feb? Kindly let me know and I love to catch up with you.

Make Extra Money Online with Google Adsense

Make Extra Money Online with Google Adsense
Make Extra Money Online with Google Adsense

Tell you a “secret”, I make extra money online with Google Adsense and Amazon Associates. I received my first Google Adsense paid check back to September 2011. It was a great feeling – to receive a pay check from Google although it was roughly about $100. Since then, I receive Google check every month.

Before knowing what Google Adsense is, I thought Google pays you by getting you to click their Ads. 🙂

How? What did you do? This is not a make million quick scam as you may see those ads like Working for Google or Working from Home Business.

What is Google Adsense? How do I make extra income with it?

To keep it simple, it’s Google Advertising network that Advertisers pay them to put up Ads across Content Network. You could start a website or a blog and add some code given by Google Adsense.

Then the Google Ads will be displayed on your site. When your site visitors click those ads, Google will pay you via your Google Adsense Account.

My First Google Adsense Check

In Sept 2011, finally, I got my first paycheck from Google Adsense. It was very exciting and finally see all my penny clicks added up as a hundred which is the minimum amount to cut you a check.

First Google Adsense Check
First Google Adsense Check

In Dec 2011, I had roughly $170 extra online income from Adsense. The daily income was like roller-coaster and some good days I had about $10 as in the below graph. $200 is not whole a lot comparing to other Adsense Guru.. well, at least finally I found the KEY and gonna duplicate it massively this year.

Make Extra Money Online with Google Adsense Goal in 2012

One of my 2012 goals is to make $100 a day. Part of my strategy is to build Adsense Micro-niche sites following the blueprint from Trent from Niche Site Mastery. I plan to build out roughly ~30 Adsense sites this year and hope to get a set of 10 high traffic sites making $1000 a month in total. I could bundle up a few winners and sell as 20x monthly income on Flipper.

As my estimate and traffic goal for this year, if I could get roughly 30,000 total page reviews a month, with 3% CPC (which is what I normally get), and at least $1 per each Ads click, it would be around $900 Adsense income.

Meanwhile, I’m still designing how to build out my sites in a bunch and try out different content and backlinking strategy. To get the exclusive tips and blog update, kindly sign up my tips newsletter at the right sidebar —>

Writing content is not my strength and I do outsource. Each site would cost as low as $50 like:
1. $10 Domain Name from Namecheap
2. $20 – 4 piece of content from Fiverr
3. $20 – 4 orders of backlinking from Fiverr

$50 budget is very low (If you write content and do backlinking yourself, you could save up much more.) and it’s doable as I pick low competition keywords with Exact Domain Name Approach. For stronger competition, I will do more backlinking with a weekly schedule.

As 3/1/2012 Update,  I am focusing and working on my Adsense Case Study. Feel free to follow my process and progress in the future posts.

Google Adsense Niche Site Scale

I have learned that you could have various Adsense Niche Site Scale as:

1. 1-3 page mini-site

For the lowest budget and cost, I only target one keyword for the main domain, and add in 2 pages targeting Long Tail Keywords.

2. 5-10 Pages

This is normally how I build out an Adsense site. I would know if the new site is a winner or not in a month. I love to fail quick so I could move on and build other new niche sites.

3. Authority Site (At least 20 pages)

I plan to build out a few this year. It would be nice to build some as Authority Sites under Google radar. Every new search engine algorithm is targeted to bring up even better search result for end-users. I’m sure that Google would love to honor mine.

Some of my niche sites have PR 2 and 3 with only 10 or 15 pages to start with. I plan to grow them even further this year.

In summary, Google Adsense is one of the easiest ways to make extra money online. Google will do most of the work – get Advertisers, put the ads on your site for you, charge the advertiser client and cut you the check. I really like its payout cycle and have fast cash flow. You will get your paid-checks mailed to you or deposited in your bank account (income for the month) at the end of next month. Make Extra Money Online with Google Adsense is not that difficult as I originally started.

Side Note: I have been practicing On-page SEO if you know what it is. Do you know what I have done on optimizing this page regarding to SEO?

How do I make extra money online as an Amazon Affiliate

How do I make extra money online as an Amazon Affiliate? I shop a lot on Amazon, but how do I make money and get a paid check from Amazon?

Journey back to 2010

In July 2010, I started out this blog and initially, I was thinking to blog about make money blogging without making any online income myself. I took couple days just to know how to install WordPress and customize a premium theme from themesheep.

Blogging and writing is not my strength and interest. I created about 3-4 post in 2010. That’s it. I’d say it wasn’t very successful. Blogging involves a lot of work and commitment.

Then what? I was looking for different ways making money online and talked about “Creative Ways”. Indeed, every work or projects involve a lot of time, energy, and creativity. I went nowhere.

Finally I made some extra money online in 2011

Thankful that I was hooked to Chris Guthrie’s Blog since June 2010. I was impressed with how he makes money with Amazon Affiliate. Some of his posts were eye-opening to me.

I saved a little bit early this year and paid $97 in March 2011 for his premium video training course Niche Profit Classroom (Original Price Site) – See the discount below. Indeed, it’s one of the best investment I have for my Internet Marketing Business. Note: I find that I learn much more in video instead of reading blogs. And you?

I finished up all his video (3 hr) in a few days. Grab the core concept, ideas and started creating a few product niche sites. The Azon WordPress Theme was a premium customizable theme and I love it. It helps me creating authority site fast and it is still one of my favorite Product Review Theme.

His Coaching Support is valuable way more than the cost. I learned so much by reading others’ questions and Chris’ feedbacks. Chris is very responsive and got his feedback within 1-2 days.

I’d say I am a hard-working student in the class. I was just focusing on writing great product related content and how-to following the training. Keep working on driving traffic to my niche sites. I had my first Amazon Affiliate Sales in May 2011. What? It was just $0.92?

Amazon First Sale May 2011

Seriously, the first dollar that you make online is precious. I still remember the excitment I received my first Adsense check from Google. Don’t you?

And over $10 in June. How nice? Indeed, the process and system was working out – sort of out of my expectation. Do people really read my niche sites and click through to buy on Amazon?

Unfortunately, Amazon suspended all Californian Affiliate in July. My Amazon income stream was just CUT off.

Since I had some traffic to my sites, I switched all over to Adsense and made some money from July-Sept 2011. Stay tuned and I will blog about my Adsense income journey.

If you really focus on ONE business model, spend time on it although it may take a few months or a year, it just works. I’m not telling you making money online is fast and easy. I have read tons of information these 2 years and spending hours and hours on the computer screen after long day full-time work.

Since Oct – My Amazon Income rocks in

Thank God that Amazon re-activated the Amazon Affiliate program in California early Oct 2011. Since then, I have sudden “success” due to the growing SEO Traffic.

I had a killing month in Nov 2011 due to the shopping seasons and it goes even better this month – Christmas Shopping Season.

As of writing, I had break-through record in the early Dec. I am working hard to hit 8.25% commission rate this month.

Dec 1 to 5 2011 Amazon Affiliate Income

It was a long journey this year and 2011 is almost over.

How do I make extra money online as an Amazon Affiliate

This is how I get paid check from Amazon. To see my blueprint and steps-by-steps in Video Training, feel free to check out Niche Profit Course.

Step 1. Do market research and find the right product niche to promote.

Step 2. Build a niche mini-site with WordPress

Step 3. Write great product review content

Step 4. Drive Traffic to my sites. I do SEO and Search Engines bring in hundreds of traffic everyday to my sites.

Step 5. Monitor and Optimize my conversation rate.

Step 6. Repeat 3-5 in loop on this site. Or move on and start with step 1.

Finally, wait and receive my Amazon paid-check on monthly basis.

Is it You?

Maybe you are hopping around and going after Shiny Objects. I do and I am a WSO sucker. I buy information products here and there and going nowhere. I have tons of pdf and video on my harddisk that I don’t even have time to digest and open them. Sounds familiar?

If you have been looking for an Internet Marketing Blueprint and success business plan, there are tons in WSO, isn’t it? I am thankful that I found one and I just stick with it and get A’s in it. I’m still learning and trying new things everyday.

$97 is a huge investment for who looking for jobs or waiting for next assignment. Chris is generous to open door to his training with a killing price.

I promote it whole-heartily as it changed my life and bank balance in 2011.

Sorry, it was a long journey and kind of boring, isn’t it? Sorry to tell you that there is no short cut making money online fast. There is just a better training out there. It worked for me at least. You just need to grab ONE, focus, work hard, and be there.

I am his honor student and promoting this killing WSO deal before it’s closed. I paid $97 full price early 2011 and wish I got this no-brain deal. Anyway, TIME is money. How much IM education could you get with $30? It not only comes with the video training, but the bonus Azon Theme is super optimized and converting. You properly notice general premium WP themes cost way more than that.

Your success is my passion. Feel free to drop by my blog and claim your WordPress training on the right side bar if you need one.

How would you spend $1000 extra income?

How does spending $1000 extra income impact your life? Let’s say you just made $1000 extra income today, how would you spend it?

How does it make difference in your life? We are doing Online Business for reasons including making and spending income I assume.

I have drafted out some ideas. They would be my daily motivation to hit $1000 three times a month as 2012 goal. – 36 times a year.  To dream evern bigger,  how about $1000 a day? It’s possible and online business potential is unlimited as you may know.

spend extra 1000
How would you spend extra $1000 today?

Spend $1000

Since this is an extra income, it would be nice to spend it all right the way. How would it improve your daily life? If you have it monthly, will you move in a better living home like an apartment in a nice neighbor?

As an extra income, I will let my kids to take music, dance, and sport classes over the weekend. It easily costs hundreds on monthly basis. What if I buy a new mini-van?

Do you have any dreamed vacation? Would you go to those countries that you haven’t been? Is $1000 enough for a nice vacation? Or save it up, so one day you could make the trip?

For me, we could have a nice Disneyland Weekend Trip in Los Angeles. It could cover gas, entrance tickets, nice meals, and hotel accommodation with $1000.

How to invest 1000 dollars?

Be honest, I don’t know how to invest money wisely. I don’t even buy stocks aggressively.

Anyway, you have extra $1000. Would you buy a few shares of Apple or Google Stocks?

Since this is an extra money, I will reinvest in my online business with outsourcing. I will outsource more article writing and backlinking so I work less. I will buy software or services to save me time and be more efficient so I could spend more time with my family.

For your reference – how to invest 1000 by other professional advice (I think it really all depends.)

http://www.mint.com/blog/goals/invest-with-little-money/

http://www.nasdaq.com/investing/start-investing-1000.stm

Saving $1000

I could save $1000 in a saving account with 0.1% return, so it would be my emergency money when things pop up such as I need to fix the toilet leaking or pay a medical bill.

I may have a bigger item to buy such as my next house. $1000 could be saved up for the down-payment.

$1000 is not whole a lot to spend right the way. It could be saved for bigger use. Would you?

Giving $1000 away

Have you been giving on regular basis? One of the joy is be able to give to those in need and donate to clarities and non-profit organizations? How about to give away a portion of it?

The more you give, the more you get.

How I will do with my extra one thousand

While my online business is still kind of green, I gonna do this breakdown:

50% – Invest back to my online business so it will grow like a seed and help making the next $1000 faster.  I’m trying to spend at least $500 a month as my annual goal.

30% – Spend. Easy enough, just spend $300 for pleasure, buy a nice meal to award myself, buy some nice toys and clothers on the kids, and family. It’s one of my motivation to make extra money online.

10% – To Save for rainy days. I feel great and secure to have an extra $100 in my saving account.

10% – To Give to Charity. The more I make, I’m more than happy to give and help others out. I’m not all about myself.

Dream Big and spend Extra $1000 would be one of your motivation working online.  I’m hitting a $1000 this month (it’s already half way through this month) and scaling up to hit X3 monthly. Meanwhile, it would be nice to dream and plan how to spend extra money like that.

Do you have any ideas how you will spend your extra $1000? Any fun idea to share? How would you spend your extra $1000 today?

My 2012 Make Extra Money Online Goals

In the first week of 2012, I was busy thinking and working out my Make Extra Money Online Goals and detailed to-do plans. Meanwhile, I was reading others as well. I’m revealing here so I get countable by you and love to catch up with yours.

After all, it’s my personal goals. Everyone is different. I am working hard to archive them on daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly basis. I properly will do monthly and quarterly update here, revisit them, and be flexible to adjust them on demand.

My 2012 Make Extra Money Online Goals
My 2012 Make Extra Money Online Goals

1. Making $100 a day

To keep it simple and easy to break-down, I plan to make $100 extra a day in average. This is a great goal to set and make and would make very nice impact to my financial and family.

Extra $100 a day is my part-time income and I would make it as “passive” as possible.

Jan 2012 would be my income baseline for 2012, I will maintain and grow my Adsense and Amazon Affiliate income to make $100 daily consistently. For now, I am making $5 a day on Adsense and ~$30 on Amazon. (Last Nov and Dec were my peak and I had many $100 a day.)

This is a nice goal, then HOW?

I have some success and experience with Niche Site Building. Making money online with Niche Sites is a number game. My Goal is to have 10 High TrafficAdsense focus sites and 10 money-making Amazon Affiliate Sites by the end of this year.

In order to weed out the winners, I’m going to launch new site every week. I’m optimizing the process (More you do, it would be better) and plan to spend 5 hours and $50 per site launch (I gonna document the case-study, my process, and outcome in the near future.)

To get my exclusive weekly tips and blog update if you are interested, feel free to get your FREE  weekly tips update .

2. I put in 2 hours average ONLY a day

As you may know, I am working on this MMO part-time after 9-to-5. With busy schedule at work, spending time with the family in the evenings and on weekends, taking care of the kids to and out of schools, I only have 1-2 hour quality time working on this online business. Over the weekend, I prefer taking rest for my brain and spending time – reading and playing with my kids (they are the reasons I am working extra hours.)

My Ah-ha moment in 2011: I am working on this business as a Project Manager. I wanna get a part-time job managing web projects, rather than sitting in front of the computer screen longer. I do and work on the computers all day long in my day job already.

I need life-balance and got burned out a little bit in 2011. I realize I don’t need whole a lot of extra part-time income. 2 hour extra-work is all I could put in and shouldn’t de-quality my life like less sleep, more stress, and less time with the family.

Sometimes, I spent more than 5-10 hours on weekend in 2011, which was not desirable and expected anymore.

In order to just spend 1-2 hours a day, I am outsourcing my “growth area” which is article writing and backlinking. Day-in, Day-out, I think and plan about what to outsource and be effective.

3. I will spend $500 a month on this business

There is no free lunch and a push button to make money online. If there is one and working for you, please show me and let me know privately. 🙂

In order to work less and scale up my business, I plan to spend around $500 a month including web hosting, services, and outsourcing. The investment will grow when the income rolls in as well.

Also for continual education, I’d buy information products, training, WSOs, and Software so I could keep update myself and save time in different processes especially site building and backlinking.

I have a detailed break-down of my expesense for this month, I am just taking action to spend it!

4. Writing a Blog Post once a week

In 2010, I wrote 5 posts when this Internet Marketing Tips Blog was launched.

2011, I was a little motivated and posted another 5 whole year.

I didn’t really have schedule and goals to reach. This year, I’m posting at least once a week. This is not my highest priority, but I’m trying to make it.

The reason is there are so many hypes and spams in MMO niche. I was information overloaded and “spam’ed”. I wanna contribute back to this community, I made some extra money successfully and hope I could help others to archive it as well. It’s do-able for part-time income.

Please note that I am doing this NOT full-time. My capability, time and resource is limited, but scalable. I will promote products I am using and working for my business.

5. I will have an Income/Expense Statement every month

I have pretty mess up income / expense data and bank statements in 2011. I admit that this business wasn’t planned. I was doing it part-time for education and fun (as attitude) and didn’t really think as a business owner.

I was a little bit lost-track of my expenses across multiple paypal accounts, credit cards, and checking accounts. I probably need to sort out for the 2011 tax purpose this month.

My plan for 2012 is to simplify my Expense and Income booking in 1-2 Checking Account and a few Credit Cards. By the end of each month, I only need a little time and will find out how much I spend and make Online.

6. I read a business book every month

My college education, work, and background is all about software and engineering. In order to be effective running this Online Business, I learned and realized that I know very little.

I don’t like reading much and didn’t read many books completely. In order to grow myself and this business, I am reading ONE business book a month. There are tons of good books out there. I’m selecting and planning to read ONE a month.

Reading would let me think and learn new ideas. After thinking and exercising those, they would become part of me. 🙂

I got this in Dec and plan to finish it by the end of this month: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Jarv Eker (my aff linke and you could read the first chapter FREE online.)

Other Goals

As a side note, I do have other goals for my full-time job, family, and health in 2012.

I am doing exercises 3 times a week and schedule to have lunch or dinner out with my wife once a month. Will keep you guys on post. I’m just a typical family man and daddy. 🙂
