May 2016 Income of $8125 AND Net Worth of $508,200!!!

This post may contain affiliate links.
This lady made over $8000 last month, almost entirely online! She works for herself from home and has a net worth of over half a million dollars. This is so interesting to read, I wish I could be a WAHM, maybe blogging is the way to make it a reality?

It’s that time again! I like to use monthly income and net worth updates for motivation. Posting them pushes me to try harder, I am forced to actually work the numbers, and I started blogging so I could share with all of you and get feedback.  I would also like to inspire more people to create income streams out of something they truly enjoy. My Backstory for New Readers I worked in a dead end cubicle job from when I graduated from college in 2005 through July 2011.  I could never be promoted within my department and $35,500 was the highest salary I ever received. My plan was to stay there for 30 years and retire. That plan went to crap for two main reasons. First, I wanted to truly connect with people. Secondly, I finally realized the position was the definition of “dead end”. That led me to creating Budgeting in the Fun Stuff in February 2010 even though I had zero professional writing experience, and I had just been a blog reader and commenter for a few months.  It grew faster than I expected (thank you!), and I have been fully self-employed since July 2011.  BFS itself has made more … Read more…

This lady earns her living online by blogging and has grown her net worth to over half a MILLION dollars. It's so inspiring! Starting a side hustle was one of the best things I've ever done, I can't wait to cross that mark, too. Working for myself eventually is my dream.

It's amazing how much earning potential there is online. Being self-employed can lead to growing huge net worths! I am amazed at how much money this lady earns online by blogging, it definitely makes me want to start a blog. Blogging seems perfect as a way for a SAHM to bring in some income and help out our budget.

March 2016 Net Worth – $485,875

Self employment is amazing! Growing a net worth into the mid six figures while primarily working for yourself, online, is no small feat. I want to do it too! Anyone can start a blog from their house and make some money on the side to help grow their net worth and I am totally going to do it for mine. It's impressive that they earn thousands every month from the internet and didn't start off with any fancy skills or writing background, either.

February 2016 Net Worth – $482,540

Make it rain! This net worth has been built almost entirely from blogging and working online, that's so cool. I love looking at people's net worths, to see how they're held, where the income comes from and what their growth looks like over time. Looking at other people's finances is so motivating and fascinating to me.

End of 2015 Net Worth Update – $488,250

Watching other people's net worths is so fun. I feel like I'm peering in to things that we don't talk about but really should more often. I can't believe she has earned all of this money from blogging and working online. Talk about a perfect way to make money from home! She even shows how she got her blog up and running and how it lead to a full time income for her. That full time income has made this amazing net worth!

December 2015 Net Worth Update – $496,695

It’s that time again! I like net worth updates and restarted them early this year. Posting them pushes me to try harder, I am also forced to actually check, and I started blogging so I could share with all of you and get feedback. Net Worth Update – December 2015 Assets Cash (in all checking and savings accounts) – $107,000 (+$5950) Stocks – $17,725  (+$165) Retirement – $135,670 (-$290) Home – $306,000 (same) Rental House – $122,000 (same) Cars – $16,000 (-$430) Liabilities Home – $196,000 ($400) Car – $11,700 ($230) Total Net Worth = $496,695 Last Month: $490,670 Total Change: +$6025 My Thoughts Yay for bumping up our cash, but I don’t think we will be able to hit the $500,000 mark this year since we are about to pay out $9000+ in property taxes and our HOA dues.  We’re also taking a cruise in December that has already been paid for but we’ll probably spend $500 on the mandatory tips and maybe an excursion.  I’m also taking a New Orleans trip in late December that will run me around $500.  Overall, I just hope stocks stay okay so we don’t take a really awful hit.  But no real worries since we … Read more…
