Last post I let you know that I will be sharing my online journey with you. I want you to be able to learn from my experiences over the past 7 years as I sought to be a successful Internet marketer.

Over the coming weeks I will take you through my experiences with specific products that I purchased. I will also tell you what worked for me and what did not.

Today will just be a general look at where we are now and a little of where we came from. You may be wondering how much income my husband and I are currently making online from our Internet marketing efforts. So let me share that with you now.

As of 2015 we are bringing in a consistent monthly income of around $200 (USD) as a minimum. This is coming from two main sources. We receive a direct payment of approximately $100 a month from Google AdSense.

The second source of our online income is coming from kindle books that we have written over the past couple of years. This income varies, but is now consistently greater than $100 every month.

Over November and December the kindle sales were higher and so the payments that we received were around $500 for both months, which was a great blessing!

If we step back in time to 2012-2013 then our consistent monthly income was only around $10 a month. Due to payment thresholds it took several months for us to actually receive our commission payments! Sometimes it was 8 to 14 months between money being deposited into our bank account.

I remember family and friends saying to me, “So when are you going to get a job?”

Each time I heard this it made me feel sad inside. Like I was a failure some how.

I was working on our Internet marketing business many long hours each day, often even seven days a week. But at that point in time there was very little to show for it and hence no one really believed that I could ever succeed.

Do you want to know why I kept going?

Because I knew deep inside me that many people were (and still are) making a full time living online. I honestly believed that if others could do it then I could too. I just needed to stick with it and find what worked for me.

And I did! Slowly now we are seeing the many hours, weeks, months and even years of effort paying off with consistent money coming into our bank account! It was not always easy, but because we did not give up we are now on our way to having multiple streams of passive income coming to us each and every month. I truly believe that this will only increase as we continue building our business and adding value into people’s lives.

So where are you in your online Internet journey? Do you bring in a consistent monthly income? Is what you make in sales or commissions as much as you hope for or are you still in the process of building your Internet business, as we are?

Please feel free to leave your comments below and share your own money-making journey with us. I truly do enjoy reading the comments that our readers leave. It is exciting to be able to share our experiences with each other.

Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a stranger and Make a Difference in the World!

It has been a while since I have written on my blog, but that is about to change. So I want to thank you for visiting my website:

My name is Leanne Annett and I live on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia with my husband, Greg. Back in 2008 we began our journey into the online world of making money on the Internet from home.

Over the coming weeks I want to write a series of articles on my blog that will share with your highlights of our seven year journey to making an income online. You will learn some of the strategies and experiences that we discovered over these many years.

I want to make sure that we begin in the best place to help you in your own online journey. Hence we will be looking at some of the following topics in the upcoming articles on my website:

  • What are your Whys?
  • Why do you think an online business model is right for you?
  • What are your goals – Personal, financial and business?
  • Mindset. Why is your mindset essentially important to your success in business and life?
  • Which online business model do you want to pursue and implement?
  • Who can you trust online? How do you determine who is worthy of your trust?
  • How do you stay up to date with the ever-changing Internet?

I have discovered so many different things during these past years, some of which has been helpful to my own journey and goals. But other things that I seen and learned have just been distractions or as we say in the internet marketing world ‘shiny objects’.

So please watch out for my upcoming articles over the coming days and weeks. My aim truly is that you will be able to learn from my own experiences and thus hasten your own online success. I honestly want to see you reach your own goals and fulfill your own ‘whys’ in the fastest, realistic time frame possible.

Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a stranger and Make a Difference in the World!

Your Friend in Life and Success,
