My Income Skyrockets When I Do This

It’s simple but you need focus and determination to do it

I go through different phases, and sometimes I work like a robot. Other times, I have to drag myself out of bed to do anything at all.

Yesterday, I had an epiphany.

My income skyrockets when I do this one thing. It’s pretty simple, but if you’re not determined and focused, you will fail miserably at it.

It’s not a magic bullet or special secret, but when you take the time to do this, your income will increase.

You might not make six figures overnight, but you will see an increase in your earnings. You will also connect with more people; you will put yourself out there more, and this will help to build your brand.

What is this thing?

I’m known on Medium as the challenge queen. I tasted my first piece of success on Medium when I set myself a challenge to write 150 articles in one month.

Some people encouraged me; others laughed and sent me nasty emails. Some were in shock, some inspired. I started a wave of challenges on Medium, and some failed miserably, some achieved their first $100 month on Medium.

This thing I’m referring to is a 30-day challenge.

Don’t underestimate the power of a 30-day challenge. It’s super powerful, and when the challenge bug hits, you can’t stop.

Right now, I’m doing a challenge on here to hit $5000 in one month. Initially, my goal was to publish every day and spend time commenting and following. So far, I’m super behind with this challenge, but I’m ready to work hard this week to complete it.

Whenever I set, and complete a challenge, my income goes through the roof.
