One of the things I've been working on is upgrading my different accounts from monthly bills to a yearly subscription to save money in the long run and secure my accounts, even on months I don't make as much income.
This month I purchased subscriptions to 17Hats and Squarespace. I also started cutting expenses on other software. I'm working on consolidating all my processes into less programs so I can stop paying for things like Calendly and Crowdcast.
This month I also changed my services, which means I lost some clients and I also began working with some new ones. This means my client work will probably be lower in November, but I'm hoping my passive income and courses will begin to supplement that client work so I can work on building my passive income and scaling my products.
Client work: $881.30 (as of the 27th) (+$362.88)

1. LAUNCH MY FIRST ECOURSE
Woohoo! Done and done :) Launched and being added to every day. I am so excited about this course!
2. ROLL OUT MY NEW SERVICES
New services, new work with page and new testimonials! All up and ready to roll :)
1. PURCHASE AN IMAC
If you've ever seen a periscope you know my hate for apple products. However my little laptop can't keep up with the work load anymore, so I have to upgrade to a computer and Macs just happen to be the best on the market right now.
I want to purchase the mac 100% using profits from Nora Conrad this month, and I'm hoping to do it on Cyber Monday while they're (hopefully) on sale. That means lots of hustling, selling and marketing to get the money I need to keep the business alive. Wish me luck!
2. MOVE BUNDLES + WORKSHOPS TO TEACHABLE
I started using Teachable as my platform for my ecourses and I LOVE IT, so I want to move my workshops and bundles over there too. I'll be working on that this month along with building my FREE GMAIL ECOURSE. That should be done around mid-November too :)
3. PREP ALL MY BLOG POSTS FOR DECEMBER
The holidays are busy. I want to make sure I have content ready to roll for the end of the year so I can spend more time with family. I'm going to pre-write all the November and December blog posts. Again, wish me luck!
