I created this blog to show you that you absolutely can make money blogging – you just need to treat it like a real business from day one.
It’s a known fact – over 95% of blogs fail. Traditional blogging advice tells you to start with a passion, create consistent content for a few years, and eventually monetize it. The problem with this strategy is it lacks one major component: monetization. If a blog isn’t treated as a real business from day one, revenue is put on the back burner, content churns out for years without a clear direction, no money is made, and the blogger quits or says their blog is “just a hobby.”
Why do blogs fail? It’s not from a lack of passion. It’s because bloggers can’t transition from writers to business owners.
They find that engaging in a passion and writing about a passion for years are two entirely different things.
That’s why I flipped the script and started treating my blog like a real business from day one. I went from tortured writer to CEO. I stopped writing and started scaling.
And I grew my blog to over 500,000 monthly readers and over $250k a month in revenue.
I want to teach you this systematized approach to blogging so that you can accelerate your path to passive income in 2023 and beyond.

The truth is, there are certain underlying and fundamental principles I will help you understand when it comes to blogging.
Bloggers need to focus less on creating micro-niche sites and more on tying their blog to their personal brand.
