Why am I revealing my income every month? Does it even make sense to tell the world how little I earn every month? Short answer. Yes!

But it is really not about how much I earn each month. It is all about the reflections of how my last month was in terms of work and productivity; what I am up to this month, and my income target for this month. It is to keep myself focused and not to veer off the long-term target that I have in store for the future. And most importantly it is to lay threadbare all my struggles and successes for your benefit, and give a peek at my progress. It is done so as to help you emulate what I am doing, in case you chooses to.

This income reports will come up every month and I will reveal everything as to how I made those incomes. It will be done to keep myself focused and to inform my readers. I would be extremely pleased if these reports would be beneficial to even a single person out there.

Alright let’s talk money, yeah.

I wish I could show you the screenshot of the invoice builder that we have inside in Leapforce for every evaluators. But due to their privacy policy, I can’t show you the inside of invoice builder that we have.

So you shall have to take this report on its face value. And trust me, I will never ever exaggerate.  Because I want to be a blogger with a difference, and will draw a big bold line when it comes to ethics, truth and honesty. I will never ever compromise on those values that I hold so dearly.

Alright here we go.

Search Engine Evaluator Income – December 2016

  • Total hours worked         –   91 hours 34 mins
  • Billed Amount                  –    $640.97
  • Income from this blog    –  0.00
  • Other Freelance works   –  0.00
  • Total income                    –  $640.97

{ Now if I were an American, that amount would have been $1236.06 as they are paid $13.5 per hour as opposed to $7 an hour for us Indians }

I am hoping to get paid around Rs. 42,944.99 as the USD – INR is currently hovering around Rs. 68. What is to be noted is the fact that when the exchange rate is Rs. 68 we get paid Rs. 67. They pay us one rupee less and charge around Rs 65 for remittance and other fees.

Analysis of last month –

If we look at the hours that I worked last month, it’s clear that I worked only a little over 4 hours if we consider 5 working days in a week.

Now that’s half the hours that I used to work in my previous company. Forget about traffic and commutation time.

I seriously need to ramp up my working hours each month and also diversify my sources of income.

Target for January 2017 –

  • $1000 income minimum.
  • Post 10 high quality, actionable blog posts.
  • Learn CSS in Codecademy.

This month, I want to bring in at least $1000 (or an American equivalent of $ $1928.57 considering they are paid $13.5 per hour), and to achieve that I must put in at least six hours of work for five days a week. I have a blueprint printed out for this month. Let’s see how it goes.

And I will be posting ten high quality post on the nitty gritty of Search Engine Evaluator job.

I am learning to code in Codecademy. It is a great free resource to learn coding. I am comfortable with HTML but CSS kind of turns me off. Let’s see how it goes.

That wraps it up for this month. I will be back with another income report early next month. Watch out.
