BWR 026: Jeni Larson: How To Be a 7 Figure Blogger

Awesome podcast of how Jeni Larson left a successful corporate job to become a wildly successful self-employed blogger. Very inspiring.

My initial goals for starting a blog was that I don’t want a boss, employee, client, or customer.

Since listening to the podcast, I am setting some more goals.

Short term goals:

* income of $100 month

(That is less than $4/day.)

My mid term goal:

* income of $40,000/year

My long term goals:

* $1 million in a savings account

$1 million in an investment account

Personal goals:

* Only work, at most, 4 hours/day

* Put my kids through college with no student loan debt at graduation

* Provide retirement home for my parents

* Ability to give my friends money when hard times knock them down

* A house in every state in America

* Write a check with a whole lot of zeros to the charities that touch my heart

To accomplish these things, I basically need to keep doing the basics which are blogging frequently and reliably as well as keeping up the social aspects of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus, and leaving comments on other blogs.

These actions have already seen a uptake in my blog numbers and my blog income.

Well, with the exception of SingedWings, which I have been completely slacking on…
