How to Track Income for Bloggers & Creative Entrepreneurs

How to Track Income for Bloggers & Creative Entrepreneurs

If you are a blogger or creative entrepreneurs you should put a system in place for tracking income from day one. From the moment I made my first dollar as a solopreneur, I grabbed a notebook and wrote down the most important aspects of my revenue sources. My first source of income was from referrals. I’d refer my readers to resources I used and loved. In return, I’d make between $0.80 and $8.00 for smaller referrals and as much as $250 for larger ones. Every time I earned revenue, I’d write it down in a notebook. When it paid out, I’d write that down too. At that time my expenses were small, but I also kept track of them. I mean, how else would I [Click here to continue reading]

Fall Glow Up Tips for Women of Color

My Fall Glow Up Tips for Women of Color is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine. #Olay28Day Let me start by asking, “Do you see the glow up your girl has?”. Y’all have always said I had great skin, but in the last 28 days, the health of my skin has gone to a whole new level. A little over a month ago, I started the Olay 28-day challenge and after just a few days I noticed a huge difference in my skin. Olay 28-days challenge: Day 1 – 7 For 28 days, I stopped using my current cleansers and moisturizers in place of exclusively using the Olay Luminous products and following the 4 step [Click here to continue reading]

Nectar Sleep Mattress

Simple Teen Bedroom Makeover | NECTAR Sleep Bed Install

This is a sponsored post written in partnership with NECTAR. All opinions are mine. In the past 4 weeks my husband, the kids and I have painted and shopped for our home. The kids needed new beds and we were moving their bedrooms around. My son got my old office and my new office is now my daughters old bedroom. My son will only be at home about another ten months before he graduates so we kept his space very simple for now. We added a fresh coat of the same “Roasted Chestnut” color already on the walls since it felt masculine to me in the first place. Next, I hung a shelf over the space where his new bed would be, so he’d have a [Click here to continue reading]

How to Dye Your Hair a Flaming Red at Home

This shop has been compensated by Schwarzkopf. #FashionColorExpert #sponsored I get to experience some of the most breathtaking fall scenery in the south. Right now the leaves are beautiful hues of greens, browns, oranges, yellows and reds. The scenery has me excited for fall and has inspired me to try a bold new look. During the cooler months I love to style my hair in braids, twists and up-do’s which help it retain length. While planning my hairstyle for this month I thought it would look so dope with a bold pop of color. Inspired by the fall leaves, I decided to dye my hair using the Schwarzkopf Color Ultime Flaming Reds in the color Mahogany Red. To start, I parted my hair into four [Click here to continue reading]

White Cheese Pizza Dip

White Cheese Pizza Dip

This White Cheese Pizza Dip recipe and shopping trip has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ExperienceScrubDots #CollectiveBias I’ve been craving this White Cheese Pizza Dip recipe for a few weeks, and decided to make it as our weekend fast food meal. I don’t make it often, because cleaning up afterward is torture. After making the pizza dough there’s usually flour stuck to the counters and in the prep bowls. And you know what a hassle it is wiping flour with a dishcloth. The flour adheres to it like glue which I find gross. I knew there had to be a better way to enjoy White Cheese Pizza Dip without the hassle of cleaning up sticky dough. I [Click here to continue reading]
