Hi guys!! Doing a bit of an update here on my June income & traffic report. June was great because I was able to go home for two weeks to visit my parents AND I moved from Scottsdale to Phoenix, so I was a bit busier than usual on the personal side of things.
However, like I mentioned in my report about May, I new there were going to be changes coming in June with a bigger client pausing my services due to manufacturing issues. At first I was bummed (obviously), but decided to take a look at the situation from a positive stand point. I had been saying for MONTHS that I felt like I didn’t have enough time to actually work ON my business (like….sending out newsletters, writing more blog posts, getting my shop set up, etc.) and I used June as an opportunity to make some serious progress and it felt great.
And… I got MORE leads in June than I had ever gotten before. Which was awesome. And then my friend Monica (I was on her podcast here) connected me with my now friend Chelsea who is going to help me streamline my lead process with Dubsado! I’m trying to be proactive and ALWAYS have some intention of improving my systems or business in some way, so that is what I will start working on in the month of July. But for now, here is my report for June:
New here? Catch up with a little background on my journey to becoming a full-time freelancer here!
Why Do I Do Freelance Income Reports?
Starting in November, I started doing income reports basically because Melissa Griffyn does them and I look up to her in each and every way haha. I noticed I would ALWAYS read her income reports and they always fascinated me and motivated me to improve my business, sooo here we are.
I pride myself that I am a very transparent person, and I like to think my blog & business reflects that same feeling of trust. With these reports, I can show you guys what worked, what didn’t, and how I re-strategize from month to month. I hope these inspire you to better your own freelance or social media biz – and please let me know if you see areas where I can improve! lol

*I was really skeptical about sharing my income publicly. Would my clients think differently of me? Would they think I’m charging too little or too much? Would my friends judge me? I have chosen to not disclose or itemize my client income. I also don’t disclose if it is pre- or post-tax income. And you guys don’t know my life!! Everyone has different expenses.
