What I did today

I feel really busy but my income has been dropping (as you’ll see below). I’m not totally sure why I feel so busy, but man am I really, really feeling it.

I have that really big recurring client, and then another client who will pay $1,000 for work, and then another who pays me ~$50 here or there.

I think the source of my feeling weird is that I haven’t been prospecting for new clients in a while. I’m too busy with my existing clients, but that also means that one of those clients going away means that I’d be in a world of hurt.

Either way, I need to continue to do more work and do whatever I can to secure new clients who like my work and stay around to work with me.

I need to boost the income, essentially, to pay off some debt.

What I made today

Job: $128

UpWork: $0

KDP: $4.18

Catalant: $700

Interview Coaching: $0

Medium: $1.00

Total: $833

Today’s pro-rated amount of monthly expenses

Expenses: $212

Today’s Income

Made: $621

My plan for tomorrow

Tomorrow, which is really today, is a busy day. I was up early and working, and I’ll continue to work through the day. I need to make sure my clients are still happy and that results are moving in the right direction.

So, let’s keep on working. One day at a time is the strategy until the debt is gone, then it’s one day at a time to build back up from there.
