New expenses: 

CONQUER the Layers of Search Engine Optimization – I’m a fan of Crystal and Kelly’s courses (I have all of them listed at the bottom of this post). Since I started them, I went from 300 Google search traffic a day to over 1000. I’m still implementing everything, so I have high hopes. Conquer was released in December, and I didn’t hesitate to buy it. It’s more expensive, but it’s a self-lead online course and I’m LOVING it so far.

As for my income, I’m waiting on close to $6500 in unpaid invoices so hopefully, they show up before the year ends!
