|Sold to the lovely Dreaming Aloud reader who bought me dinner too!|
This means I have made more, in less days than our main breadwinner! Wowzer! (Sending massive gratitude to Mr DA, he keeps the bread on the table and the loo roll on the holder when I have quiet months.- and doing something he doesn't love quite a much as I love my work - big love, dear Mr DA for your constant hard grind supporting us all over the years xxx)
It couldn't have come at a better time, the finances were looking rather grim, and the bills for next years uniforms/ books etc were coming at us.
Thank you dear rainbow income streams, showering abundance on us!
Let me give you a break down - so that you can understand WHY rainbow income streams are so cool, and vital if you're self employed.
This month I have earned:
- 12% from consulting
- 11% from contracted writing/ editing
- 40% from selling my art
- 9% from affiliate programmes
- 8% from book sales
- 20% from teaching
But this is how I'm making it work - by adding rainbow streams which each trickle or gush abundance at us according to the season.
My top tips for rainbow income streams:
- Don't be reliant on one employer/ contractee
- Have a balance of online/ off line, local/global, products/ services
- Use all your skills - brainstorm what you can do
- Price fairly but well
- Tell people you're in business
- Accept money!!
And you know where I learnt all of this - from the wonderful Leonie Dawson (who I am an affiliate for). Her Business Goddess e-course comes as part of the year's subscription to the goddess circle, which is great for meeting new, likeminded business networkers, clients and collaborators.
A big heads up... She is doubling her prices on July 2nd, so if you've been wondering about joining, get in fast for only $99.
