A few caveats before we begin;
1️⃣ Firstly, society treats money as a completely taboo topic
and it’s usually a no-go to talk about how much money you earn. I believe this causes a lot of problems; and hence plan to be transparent
about the money I earn during this journey. One of the main reasons for me embarking on this path is after being inspired by other developers and creators such as Ali Abdaal
, Florin Pop
, and Indie Hackers
sharing their progress. They do this by sharing how much money they earn and crucially, how they do it
. (Thank you! 🙏🏻 Keep up the good work! 🚀) This has undoubtedly been the biggest helper for me getting started.
2️⃣ Secondly, nobody is being forced to read this post. If you think you don’t want to see my income, then please don’t read this issue. I trust you have the self-awareness to recognise this. 🙏🏻
3️⃣ Thirdly, it goes without saying that this newsletter is absolutely not financial advice and should not be taken as such. I am a complete novice when it comes to all things money related and am by no means professionally qualified. Please do your own research. 🙏🏻
4️⃣ Lastly, the goal for me is financial freedom, not to be obsessed with how much money is in my bank account. True wealth is having the freedom to do what you want, when you want. Money is simply a mechanism to make this happen, it isn’t the end goal. 👊🏻
With all that been said, here are my four income streams that have earned me money so far in 2021.
