Welcome to September’s online income report!
In July, I wrote my first income report and it was popular, so I’m going to continue providing these each month. They definitely stack on top of each other, so to put some of this in context you may want to explore the August income report.
How was my business income in September?
I earned $5592.25 in September, before expenses.
THIS IS MY FIRST 5K MONTH IN BUSINESS!! I am celebrating here in Bali, Indonesia. I love serving clients, and I love what I do. This is my Zone of Genius.
I made $1310.67 more than I did in August. If I had a month like this every month, my salary would be $67,106.64.
Here is a breakdown of what my income looked like:
This past month I focused on launching and welcoming the first cohort of SA Pro to CEO, an online group coaching program. It was AMAZING. The people who showed up and took action saw so much momentum in their business....
Welcome to August's online income report where I show you how much money I made. Last month, I wrote my first income report (read if you're new here) to clear some of the smoke and mirrors that the coaching industry can communicate like "A $20,000 launch!" Like.. what? Most people sign-up for payment plans, so coaches are most likely not making that each month. *I share money earned, not money planned. Entrepreneurship takes consistency, time, energy, and patience.
I'm in it for the long run!
I left my job as a student affairs professional in 2015 for a higher ed tech startup job. I left that job in January 2018 and haven't looked back!
How was my business income in August?

August was a great month connecting and serving clients (major life breakthroughs and career transitions). I also...
Welcome to the July 2018 income report and the first place where I’ve shared my income publicly!
I’m publishing my monthly income report as a transparent way to show you how I actually make a living each month as an entrepreneur, and how it can be scary as f*ck.
There have been months where I’ve thought about applying back to student affairs for a steady paycheck. However, the amount of hours worked is just not worth it for my mental/emotional/physical health to throw myself back into that space just yet. And my bank account. I feel like I’m doing really well on my own so far, and I'm really excited for expected growth in the upcoming months!
Many of you will ask why I would ever want to post my income publicly each month. I want to publish my monthly income for 3 main reasons:
1. Before I started my coaching business, I was not interested in started a coaching business on my own. I obtained my Wellness Coaching Certification in 6 months, preparing...
Here's my story.
A few years ago, I was a student affairs professional who dreamed of owning her own business and leaving the 9-5 grind for good. I even wrote a blog post about the transition. This all started when I left student affairs and transitioned to a higher ed technology company where I ran marketing and social media for almost 3 years.
I felt like I was working nonstop in my first 1-3 years in student affairs, and when I moved into a higher ed, it didn't get much better. Being expected to manage all social media for someone else's dream and company was fun at first (growing our audience + brand), but it was less motivating to do the work after a few years... I wanted to build a business for myself, but I had no idea what I wanted to do.
In October of 2016, I found an online coaching program called Coach Training EDU where I obtained my Wellness Coaching Certification (and you can, too—more details below). In July, I witnessed all of these amazing...
Original post on LinkedIn, when I started this journey in 2015.
About five months ago, I made the decision to leave my job in student affairs, specifically residence life, to explore interests I’ve had for some time. Leaving my first full-time position after ten months was an unexpected obstacle I faced at the beginning of my professional career. I’ve always been a student affairs fan: I knew I wanted to be a residence director my sophomore year in college and I was involved with everything under the umbrella of involvement.
After graduating with a Bachelor's in business management and public relations along with a college student personnel Master's degree, I held onto that vision. With it included a five- to ten-year plan of becoming a living-learning community specialist and a director of residence life. By the time I was ready to move onto the “new professional” stage of my career as an area coordinator, I felt overcome with anxiety. I was finally...
