I am pretty sure you have come across five and six figure income reports at some point on your blogging/ entrepreneur journey. I must admit they can be a bit addicting. Just imagine what it would be like to have trickles of passive income adding up to hundreds, even thousands of dollars on a monthly basis.
Often times these “income reports” motivate you to keep grinding forward toward endless possibilities, and sometimes they fill you with doubt and intimidation. Nevertheless, one thing remains; how in the world do these Pro’s make such large figures?!?
Today I want to plant a little seed in your heart that could potentially change the course of your finances, forever. You, yes YOU have the ability to create a strong and passive income stream for years to come.

I took it upon myself to reach out to women I follow closely. Women who have inspired me to be financially independent while being able to raise a family.
I have been a nurse for 10 years and recently became a stay-at-home mom of my two little kiddos (a 3-year-old and a 7 month old). I knew I wanted to stay home to take care of them, but I needed to find a “work from home job” that would supplement my monthly nursing salary. But what?!
After enormous amount of research I came across great material, including the outstanding work of these four amazing women which I mention in this article. That’s when I found, and fell in love with profitable blogging.
They have helped me build an incredible foundation and I am currently well on my way to making that dream a reality. The dream of passive income and financial freedom.
But I’m not just talking about “a few dollars a month”, enough to buy diapers. I am talking about the kind of money that will allow you and your family to live comfortably for years to come.
So, I reached out to the real Pros. The same women whom I admire and have followed throughout this journey, so that they can share with us the secret of their impressive success.See how these 4 Pro Bloggers/ Entrepreneurs earn Passive Income and how you can do it too!Click To Tweet
Come to find out, these successful women have one thing in common. They realized that the power of true financial freedom and recurrent passive income, relied on one specific thing… making and selling their own product.
In other words, writing and launching their own ebook!
You will be pleasantly surprised at what they had to say…
“When My husband Donnie suggested that I write an eBook, I shot down the idea immediately. Surely I didn’t know enough to write an eBook! What tools do I even use to launch something like that? And even if I did write it, how would I let people know it was for sale? What if no one bought it?!
Thankfully, though, I worked up the courage and wrote that eBook anyway and today, with a few more eBooks under my belt, I am making six figures a year, due in large part to my books!”
It is a Framework packed full of tried-and-true methods that you can start using today, to either start a blog or improve your current one. All of the information is laid out in a logical way that will take new bloggers and bloggers-to-be through the process of growing successful blogs one step at a time. This was the very first book I came across, and purchased. Forever grateful, Abby!

“For the longest time, there was a little voice in my head saying, ‘Write an eBook! Your audience will love it!’
Yet I resisted that calling, simply because I was scared; I was scared it would take up too much time to write an eBook. I was scared that no one would buy it. I was scared that it wouldn’t be “pretty enough” to sell. I eventually conquered these fears, and am so happy to say that I wrote and released my first eBook earlier this year.
Once I finished the eBook (having written it in less than a week because I was feeling so inspired) and selling dozens of copies on the first day, I knew I had struck gold and was kicking myself for not getting started with the book sooner!
I absolutely love having an eBook as part of my digital offerings, and I strongly recommend that every blogger focuses on writing and selling an eBook as one of their first paid products!”

“When I wrote my first eBook I was completely driven but extremely scared. I spent months before building up my blog, growing my email list and engaging with my readers, so I knew which questions to answer in my eBook.
I took an entire month off blogging to focus on writing and formatting my eBook. And after I finished it, I just let it sit there for a week. I was too scared to launch it. I took almost another week to just create the sales page and build up the nerve to send it to my email list.
Your first product will always be a little scary to launch. But unless you have confidence in yourself, no one else will. After I launched it I broke $1,000 for the first time in a month with my blog. I was elated and jumped for joy! I couldn’t wait to help others do the same!”
In one year this mama was able to grow her blog from $0 to over $11,000 per month. From deciding your niche to monetizing your blog, she covers it all in this 143 page gem . This is seriously the most info packed eBook I’ve come across that I consider to be way under-priced. Once you visit the sales page you’ll see what I mean. You get so much value and pay less than a dinner for two. UPDATE: Blog by Number it is now a course which includes much more value (if that’s even possible, LOL), videos and bonuses.
eBook: Income Journey
This one goes out to all of the Income Report addicts out there. I know I am! (haha). In this eBook shes goes into detail of what worked each month and how she earned an income from $o – $17,000 per month in her first year of blogging. An organized month by month compilation of her successes and failures to help you implement the same strategies and avoid the same mistakes. Passive income at it’s finest. UPDATE: Income Journey has now transitioned to a course with bonus features.

“I have long known the importance of creating a product in terms of blog monetization, but I wanted to make sure that I created a product that people were actually looking for, rather than wasting time creating something that no-one wanted.
I have had excellent success with the Amazon Associate’s program and I know that a lot of bloggers struggle with this, hence why I decided to write a short eBook on the program.
Honestly, the entire process of creating my eBook was fairly straightforward. I was excited to get my first product out there because not only did I want to help other bloggers earn money through Amazon, I also knew it was a great way to create passive income. As of this of writing, I make around $1400 a month from the sales of ‘Cracking the Code on the Amazon Associate’s Program’.”
- Find something you are good at. If you are a blogger, then great! That means that you already write about something in particular you know a lot about.
- Solve a common problem for your audience.
- Think about your target audience and the information it would be hard for them to find for free.
- Help simplify a process by walking them step-by-step.
- Make a list of your top posts and see what they have in common, then elaborate on that subject. In other words, expand on something you’ve already written.
- Look into what’s trending.

Remember, you can monetize your site with affiliate links, adds, sponsored post, and other sources (which we all know are a good practice). However, they require a lot of effort for only a small portion of the original price, and you are NOT in control of the profit. Why not instead invest that time in creating and promoting YOUR product for full commission.
What a crazy thought, huh? Having money trickle into your bank account as you sit at a baseball game with your kids, enjoying some fabulous roasted peanuts and a really cold drink. All because you invested in the best tools to make that success possible from day one.
As someone who is currently taking the course, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
You have the power to learn and invest in the tools necessary to ensure that financial freedom today!
I want to remind you that you have it within you to create and produce something that can potentially become the difference between financial independence and living paycheck to paycheck. In the process, you will also have the ability to reach others through your writing, knowledge, and advice. There must not be a better feeling of self-empowerment than that. It’s a win-win, for you and your audience.You have a unique God-given gift. Don't ever doubt your potential. You can do it! Click To Tweet
