It’s been about 4 months since I started my 13 Month Journey to Financial Freedom. I promised to give you regular updates to my progress, and you’re about to read how things are going with money, my business, my health and my life. Enjoy!
I’m Making More Money!
I’ve set a goal for myself of $5000 per month from my online business, which is an amount that would give me an enormous amount of freedom to live and travel as I please at my current age.
Although I’m not there yet, I’m making good progress towards that goal and feel that my goal is attainable by or before the end of this year. I’ll tell you at the end how much I made last month…keep reading.
Initially I struggled to make and follow a plan that had a logical strategy behind it to grow a sustainable online business. I didn’t really count on UpgradeReality to be a big part of my online income, but I’m starting to see how it can and will be.
Currently UpgradeReality has over 3300 subscribers and is getting around 1000 unique visitors daily. That is a LOT of traffic, and I’ve noticed a big increase in sales of Binaural Beats,Manifest it All and of course my value-packed Upgrade Reality Ebook + it’s bonuses.
I plan to grow UpgradeReality through various traffic-generating methods, but mainly through guest posting on related blogs in the personal development niche. (And of course by asking you (as a reader) to share my articles with your Facebook and Twitter followers whenever possible *smiles*).
I’ve also started building 3 affiliate sites in the big niches (Dating, Weightloss and Forex) that I plan to build into big authority sites with hundreds of articles and a complete solution for anyone interested in those niches. It’s a long-term plan (1-2 years) but I will be outsourcing most of the content creation so it will only take a little bit of my time, and it’s almost just as much work to create 1 site as creating 3, so I’m creating 3. (All the processes like link-building and getting traffic can be done for 3 sites at the same time just as easily).
Besides UpgradeReality and my new authority sites, I also have my dating product Simple Attraction Secrets, teaching men how to eliminate fear, become confident and get women. This is listed on Clickbank and has already made dozens of sales. It’s a really valuable and helpful product and I’ve received nothing but positive feedback and thankful replies from my buyers. This year I’ll be focusing on sending targeted traffic to that product and making more sales.
So there you have it, my progress and my plan for my online business. You may be aware that I launched a course about successful blogging a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been working on an expanded and much better version of it with one of my best friends in real life – Glen Allsopp fromViperchill.com, and we’ll be unveiling it on Wednesday. It’ll be the last blogging/marketing-related product that I’ll mention on this blog for the rest of the year.

I’m Getting Stronger + Nice Abs
Last year I announced and reported my 90 Day Fitness Challenge with progress on this very blog.
Since the beginning of April I’ve started another challenge like that for myself. I’ve been going to gym 3 times per week and eating healthy. My time-frame to continue this challenge is 3 months and my goal is to gain more muscle and definition (I think I look good but still a little too skinny).
Another reason and motivation for this challenge of working out, eating healthy and getting the body I really want is to be able to show you and all the readers of UpgradeReality that it is possible and that it doesn’t take as long as you may think it will. I’m a big believer of leading through example, so I’m going to do it myself before I tell you how to do it.
I’ll keep you posted and will give an update with pictures every now and then.
Life Besides Money & Gym…
Besides working hard on my online business and besides my healthy eating and workout-schedule, I’m really enjoying life.
I’m living with one of my best friends in a really nice complex in Cape Town, close to shops and nightlife. I go out a few times a week, watch a couple of movies and I’m generally having an awesome time.
I’m feeling the itch to travel again and I’m really keen to go to Europe or Asia for 2-3 months, but this will likely cost me around $8000 and I don’t want to spend money if I’m not making it. Don’t worry, I’ll definitely go somewhere at the end of the year, but I want to dedicate myself to making my online business work.
That’s all for now, thanks for reading this far.
I promised to tell you how much I made last month, so here it is: Last month I made a total of $1180 online.
P.s. Remember to check Upgradereality.com or your email inbox (subscribers) on Wednesday to see what Glen and I have been working on for the last weeks. I’ve literally worked through the night and I’m writing this blog post from the energy I get from eating giant bowls of oats
