Sometimes I’m a little slow on the uptake but I think the numbers have finally hit me over the head. Demand Studios has always been my security blanket. I’m sure you understand how that feels. When ever I needed a few quick bucks I’d bang out a few $15 Demand Studio articles, get my money and be on my merry way.
Now that it’s the end of the year, my mood is even more reflective than usual. In the true spirit of reflecting on the past year I took my 2010 year-to-date earnings to see if I need to make strategic changes for next year.
At this point, I’ll let you look at the numbers to see if you come to the same conclusion:
Earnings as of December 19, 2010:
|2010 # Articles Written||257||483||740|
I spent 35% of my time writing for Demand Studios which yielded 15% of my income.
I’ll end this post by admitting that I allowed fear to stop me from reaching my full residual potential. The numbers are yelling at me to let go of the safety net and spend 100% of my writing time on residuals. I think I’ll finally listen to them.
BTW, if I can do it you can too. I’ve found that the “secret” to earning money online is consistency and patience. If you keep plugging away at it, eventually things start to come together.
