How I made $120,458.70 In 3 Months (Q2 2020 Income Report)

 

Welcome back to another quarterly income report! This episode is super special because it's the one year anniversary of this podcast! I can't believe this podcast has been around for a full year. I looked at the stats recently, and discovered that our little podcast has been listened to in 1300 cities across the globe! I am so full of gratitude to all of you guys who have supported this passion project by listening, leaving reviews, and coming alongside me in my journey. THANK YOU.

In this episode, I break down how I made over $100K so far this quarter, some of the biggest changes I've made in the last three months (hiring my first full-time employee), how my $27 tiny offer made 40% of my revenue this quarter, and the importance of pivoting and persisting in business.

If you want to learn more about what a tiny offer is, and how you can create a profitable tiny offer for your business, check out my good friend Allie Bjerk's program, Tiny Offer Lab.

Why Being An Overnight Success Is A Lie

 

Want to know how I made over $102,000 in a 6 month time span last year? Download my 6 Figures in 6 Months Income Report at the bottom of my homepage: ellenyin.com

If you’re familiar with my six figures in six months income report, today’s guest is the woman who inspired it. In early 2018, I discovered Elise Darma’s blog where she shared her income reports at the end of every month, detailing how much revenue she made in the business, where she spent her money, what her profit margins were, and how much she paid herself. I was inspired by her transparency and tired of the lack of accountability from industry gurus who made flashy claims about their earnings without revealing expenses or profits,  so I decided to release my own monthly income reports from January through July of 2019.

We discussed both the benefits and drawbacks of sharing your personal finances with the Internet in depth in today’s episode. For those of you who are unfamiliar...

How This 25 Year Old Went From $82K in Debt To Traveling First Class To 47 Countries (For Free) While Making Millions

 

My favorite part of recording this podcast is being exposed to new and different worlds in the online space, and this week’s guest - Yan Stavisski - is introducing us to the fascinating world of travel hacking and credit hacking, the practice of leveraging credit to produce positive cashflow. 

Yan went from drowning in $82,000 of credit card debt just 3 years ago to running a 7 figure company by the age of 25. He did this all while traveling 47 countries and getting  nearly $500,000 worth of first class flights and travel perks for free. Yan shares some really interesting insights with us today, but I want to preface our conversation by reminding you that nothing in this episode should be taken as legal financial advice from Yan or myself as a prescription for what you should do. This is simply Yan sharing his own story and his unique experiences. As with all financial strategies, there is risk and personal responsibility involved. 

My hope is this episode...

Single Mom Start-Up: How To Grow + Bootstrap Your Small Business When You’re Not Yet Profitable

 

You know we love bringing you the wisdom of successful entrepreneurs who have - so to speak - already made it, but we also think there is so much value in learning from entrepreneurs who are actively working in the trenches to build their business. I recently got to chat with my sweet friend, Lauren Strain, a 29 year old single mom and founder of newly launched company, “Pollumination", a collection of eco-chic candles + ceramics. 

Lauren actually created a few custom tumblers for me before, and besides the fact that her products and packaging are so beautifully made, she also has a huge heart for giving back. A portion of all her proceeds goes to the Pollinator Partnership in San Francisco, California to support bee conservation. 

Lauren shares with us the hardest parts of transitioning from a service based business as a photographer to now a products based business, why she chose to make giving back a key element of her business model from the beginning,...
