Forty Fifth Income Report – December 2016 ($104.37)

Are you curious about a one-year delay? I explained it in my first income report.


Income Report December 2016My biggest takeaway in December 2016 was networking. I found in my journals traces of several calls with other authors, my readers, and guys from The Community.

But the calls were just a tip of an iceberg. I regularly visited a few Facebook groups and shared (and absorbed) some tips and tricks.

Are you curious about a one-year delay? I explained it in my first income report.

Trips

Prague

Forty First Income Report – August 2016 (-$428.36)

Are you curious about a one-year delay? I explained it in my first income report.


The Slight Edge reportAugust 2016 was a very busy month for me. Not only had I tackled many additional projects, I also had publishing of the next book on my hands. The amount of activities that come into play with publishing a book causes me a headache on its own. How the heck I tackled half a dozen other tasks puzzles me to no end. But my journals don’t lie 😉

The beginning of May 2016 was crazier than usual, and that means quite a lot coming from me.
