How To Make More Money For Your Family With A Blog

If you're reading this, I'm earning money. Thanks for helping to feed my family. Please see our disclosure for more information. Also, any advice provided is for informational purposes only. I'm not a CPA, lawyer, or doctor, although my parents wanted me to be all three. So, talk to a professional before acting on anything you read below.

How to make more money for your family with a blog

Look, I know trying to bring in extra money for your family is no small feat. When we went from a two-income household down to a one-income household, the transition really put a strange on our finances and our marriage.

We had to make the incredibly difficult decision to sell our dream home and leave the expensive area we loved. It wasn't easy, but it became a necessity since we decided to have my wife stay at home with our son.

Since making the commitment, we began to thrive. However, it was slow process. We had to pay off $30,000 in credit card debt ... then another $10,000 after that. We kept thinking we could live our old lifestyle of eating out and buying whatever we wanted, but that wasn't sustainable.

We had to downsize our lifestyle just like we downsized our income.


Why You Need A Side Hustle

Fortunately, for me, I've always been an entrepreneur at heart. While my day job pays for our daily lifestyle, the side hustle I've started pays for extra things. In fact, it helped us pay for Christmas in 2017 and pay off some of our debt. We're well on our way to re-building our emergency fund as a result.

Between December 2017 and January 2018, I was able to make $10,000 from my blog. It's only the beginning -- and it's been life changing.

My point in telling you all of this is ... you can start a side business that brings in more money for your family. You can pay off debt. You can get your financial ship upright and thriving.

It's all possible.

But, you have to follow a process to get there. I'm all about the process and laying a foundation.

For me, blogging is the side hustle. And Elite Blog Academy is the process ... the foundation. If you have any desire to start a blog to bring in more money and help others, I suggest you start with EBA.

Here's my own personal video testimonial on my experience ...

What Will Your Legacy Be?

At the end of the day, the reason I'm doing all this is for my family. I want to spend more time with them and leave a legacy for my children.

That's why I get up at 4 am or 5 am every day -- even weekends and off days. Technically, there are no "off days." Rather, it's just taking care of the priority of the day.

And it's in those day to day moments of stuff for the day job, then family responsibilities, and side hustle tasks that the legacy gets built. The daily grind produces the ultimate results of your life.

For you, will it be a life well-lived? Or will you have regrets?

I sure as hell won't regret taking a chance at a better life for myself and family. I wasn't made to be confined in a cubicle.

If you're reading this, I guess neither are you.

So, do yourself a favor. Make a commitment either way.

Go for it. You CAN do this.

Hey David, I am starting a new blog about first time home buyers and the mortgage process. Would you be interested in a guest post? I’ve been in the mortgage business for a decade and am starting my blog to better educate consumers and potential buyers.

Let me know if you are interested.
