3. Start a blog
When I went full-time on my blog back in 2017, I was scraping by and wasn't making much on my blog, but now I've made close to six figures with my online business in just 1 year. It's really incredible what you have the power to do with your blog.
You can monetize a blog in so many ways, including sponsored posts, affiliate marketing, ad revenue, selling your own products, coaching, and so much more.
What you ultimately do to make money as a blogger is completely up to you.
Here are 5 to become a successful blogger:
1) Choose a niche that already makes money (personal finance, health and fitness, travel, etc.) and subniche from there. This means go even deeper into a niche. Ex. Niche: Personal finance > Subniche: Personal finance for college students or personal finance for Catholic moms.
2) Take a comprehensive blogging course. My #1 recommendation for new bloggers who want to build a profitable blog in the fastest time is Blog With A Full-Time Job.
Blog With A Full-Time Job consists of:
- A specific plan for launching, growing and monetizing your blog while working full-time
- The exact strategy to grow and monetize your blog to a six-figure blog
- How to set up a beautiful looking blog that is completely customizable
- How to write blog posts specifically for monetizing
- Sooo much more + tons of bonuses, templates, worksheets, etc.
- Learn how to manage your mind, productivity, time management (all VERY important for working at home and running a successful business)

3) Learn from 1 teacher at a time. For example, in Blog With A Full-Time Job, there's a 12-month strategy plan that you will implement in your blogging business. Eliminate distraction and overall by learning from this teacher and this teacher only until you have finished the course. This rule can be applied to any blogging course you are in.
4) Figure out what outlet you want to use for blogging. Do you want to have your own blog? Or do you want to create a YouTube channel? Find out where your audience is and go from there. If you don't know yet, don't sweat it. You'll learn as you go. Creating a blog at the very least will be useful, even if you go the YouTube route.
