I had no clue that when I started my store June 1, 2017, I would make $52,060 that very first month and hit 6 figures/month within just a few short months.
But pretty soon I knew I was onto something….something bigger than I had ever imagined.
My Shopify store paved the way to my path of making 7 figures/year online, consistently, but it’s not about the money for me.
It’s about proving the world wrong!
It’s about doing something I love and creating the lifestyle I want to have, regardless of what anyone else thinks or says.
It’s about being home with my kids, my family, and making a better life for them.
14 years, I was married. My ex-husband went off and started having a bunch of affairs and got a few other girls pregnant. He just up and abandoned us one day. I woke up and he was gone. It was a tragedy. I had been a stay-at-home-mom all of my kids lives. I had no income. No means to support myself. No child support, he was just gone without a trace. With no family to help me out, me and our two little ones ended up in a homeless shelter.
Everyone told me to get a job outside the home, including the judge in my divorce, but I stood my ground. I said, “NO!” I refused to leave my kids. Month by month, year by year, I worked from home and figured out a way.
I felt called by God to start a blog and obeyed that conviction. My blog did very well right from the start. I grew a platform and have been doing what I love ever since.
Things change over time, we change and grow and I simply wanted a place to put my new Blogging Binder to sell. I tried a couple other options and they didn’t work well, meaning, they didn’t get good sales. When I put my Blogging Binder on Shopify, the thing started selling like hotcakes! Something about THAT platform, just WORKED!
I added another product and another and another. To this day, I have 74 products in the store and plan on listing a ton more as time goes on.
While my income is fantastic and I get to do something I’m REALLY passionate about (printables), I’ve been creating income reports for my Shopify store mostly because I want to track my OWN progress.
So often, we simply forget the successes and failures of the past and need to look at the data to see patterns to help us grow.
Having that in-depth information handy for my own future reference as well as to help YOU know what works and what doesn’t, so you start out already ahead of the game, is so incredibly valuable.
I hope you’ll join me in this journey. I hope that you’ll enjoy seeing not only my successes, but also my failures, and how I jump those hurdles all along the way.
