Have you been dreaming of starting your own business but you have some doubts about doing it with the circumstances surrounding the covid-19 virus? Well I have a question for you.

What better time is there than right now?

Most people are stuck at home and they’re not able to go out, so what does that leave them with in terms of entertainment? The answer: the handy dandy internet and your awesome blog.

It might be scary trying to start a business amidst such uncertainty but if you can figure out how to navigate these waters, maybe the next big issue the world faces won’t be able to impact your life on such a grand scale. That’s one of the main reasons I started my blog. Well that and I looked at all these posts on Pinterest and fell into the rabbit hole thinking “Hey! I could do that!”

I wanted to be able to work from anywhere, anytime, doing anything I wanted and have people be able to access my business from wherever they may be in turn. Yeah, it’s scary starting a blog in today’s day and age, but it would have been scary had I done it 6 months ago or even two years from now, so I ask again, what better time than now?

There isn’t one. We got this.

So without further ado, here are the goals for my blog in 2020.

Earn $100 in profit my first month blogging

My first goal is simply to make money from my blog and $100 seems both easily attainable and exciting. To some of you it may seem overly or under ambitious but to that I say, you have to start somewhere, and I’m starting here.

Bring in $15,000 in revenue in my first year blogging

My current salary where I work full time is around $30,000 so I think if I can make $15,000 in one year working part time on my blog, I’m on the right track. Additionally, any money earned fulfills my goal of being a profitable business.

Use the money I earn to enhance my circumstances and well being

I would love to be able to save the money earned from my blog and use it to:

  • Pay off some of my school loans

  • Put a down payment on a house
