Time for another Income report for my online business. I considered not doing them anymore as it’s like keeping a record of failure, but I figured it’s exactly what I need. Eventually I’ll get sick of looking at these pathetic results and I’ll do what needs to be done to turn my situation around. I’ve done just enough to keep my head above water and nothing to pull myself out of poverty.
It usually takes me about 6 months of abuse to completely change my life, so I’m thinking about now is time to change. It has been nearly 6 months since I decided to pull myself out of poverty and make money online. Which means I have used up all of my excuses, have distracted myself in a million ways, learned everything possible, and am now all out of patience.
So, the next time I’m asked “how is your new internet venture going?” I’ll be able to say “Shit, but I’m now doing the things that I know I’m supposed to do.” And in time, hopefully very little time, I’ll be able to answer with “Awesome, I’m earning much more money every single month and I’m struggling to count it all. Would you like a job counting my money?” 😉
Enough silliness though, lets see how the procrastinator did in November.
> = increase on last month
< = decrease from last month
<> = no change from last month

Health, Happiness & Knowledge Goals
This section is harder to measure, but I intend to mention what I have done well, where I can improve, and how I have progressed.
- Health: Back to walking everyday and feeling better for it. I haven’t quit sugar but have almost stopped eating chocolate. I had it twice during the past month and felt guilty both times. My demonization of it is working! hehe
- Happiness: Just doing things that make me feel good. Painting most days. Keeping away from news and mainstream media.
- Knowledge: Mostly listening to audiobooks, reading blogs, and watching Youtube videos.
- Where can I improve: Pull my finger out. Stop wasting time. Make Money!!
Conclusion + Internet Profit
I won’t include income from investments as they’re basically paying down debt, so I don’t see any of it in my pocket. My total profit from the Internet in November is $361. After my $1,000+ profit last month I have put it in reverse and gone backward very fast! Oh well, what can I say. I’m not going to cry about it. I just need to get back on the horse and stop doing things that are not helping me. I know what I’m doing wrong and I know what I should be doing, but I’m not doing it, so there’s only one person to blame for that and he’s writing this blog post right now!
The mortgage on my rental property is down to about $290k finally! It feels like it has been stuck in the 290s forever. So next month it should be about $289+ which is quite exciting. I wish the bank would forget that I owe it money and I could just collect the $500 per week rent as income for me to spend.
Speaking of banks, this was the 4th month in a row that I couldn’t afford to buy more shares in the Commonwealth Bank. The plan was to buy at least $500 worth of stocks every month but I just haven’t been able to.
Anyway, it’s a new month! One more month for 2017. That’s ridiculous. Where did this year go?
Positives for the month: Car fund UP, Mortgage down, Stocks UP, Excuses down, Smiling more, Life is Good 🙂
