In 2011, Michelle Schroeder-Gardner started a blog called Making Sense of Cents as a fun hobby. After finding some early financial success with sponsored posts and affiliate marketing, she decided her little blog could actually become a viable business.
Fast forward to today, Michelle now makes over $1.5 million per year from her blog and continues to see massive success with her overall online-based business. Not only has she gone from $0 to $1.5 million incredibly fast, but she's done it all in her 20's.
What are we covering today?
Michelle and I discuss:
- How she got her start blogging
- The ways she's specifically making money
- Advice for others who are looking to have a fraction of her success
Even if you’re not into blogging, Michelle’s straightforward advice on building a business and creating time freedom is extremely motivating. You’re not going to want to miss this one.
