This was an odd month to say the least. I spent every weekend at my parent's home and didn't do any work besides during the week. Because of that my sales and client work was much less, but because I planned ahead and purchased year-long subscriptions to my tools, I was able to cut my monthly expenses by almost 80%.
Due to some personal stuff I will be taking a large break in December but my sales and ads will be able to keep my expenses paid and help me make a little extra for the holidays. Here's the breakdown:
Client work: $428.91 (-$452.39)
Bundles, Shop and Workshop Sales: $188 (-$64.88)
Blogher and YouTube Ad campaigns: $57.38 (-$54.92)
TOTAL INCOME: $674.28 [$572.19 LESS THAN OCTOBER]
Google Email: $5.00 (no change)
Buffer Business: $50 (+$3.21)
Evernote: $5.99 (no change)
Other (Adobe): $19.99 (no change)
TOTAL EXPENSES: $80.98 [$335.87 LESS THAN OCTOBER]
NET INCOME FOR NOVEMBER- $593.30

1. PURCHASE AN IMAC
Womp womp womp. This one did not go as planned. With a crazy busy month, not enough marketing and slow hours at my day job, my money had to be spent on more responsible things. I'm keeping the dream alive though and I will buy an iMac sometime in 2016.
2. MOVE BUNDLES + WORKSHOPS TO TEACHABLE
Woohoo! This one went nice and smooth and I've actually made more sales because of it. You can check out all the courses here.
3. PREP ALL MY BLOG POSTS FOR DECEMBER
Done and written! Not only did I outline, format and prep all the posts, but I also got them all written! Read about how I prep my blog posts here.
1. TAKE A BREAK
Yup, this is my one and only goal. I have a bunch of projects to work on but my #1 goal is to enjoy the holidays and take some time away from my computer. This year has been incredible but I need to allow myself to relax a bit. I won't be online for the second half of the month and I'm really excited about it.
