    September Goal: $7000
    Earned: $9500
    Spent: $1264

    Holly cow, I'm at $9500 in one month for the first time!!!! I need to hustle $500 and I reach thread goal!!!!!!

    So, I got 1k from the store guy, who paid 3 days earlier lol. Then I got 1k from the guy I upgraded from $500 to 1k google ads package. Will try to hustle $500 more from my current customers to reach the goal, because it's so close.

    It's not impossible, but it's harder to pitch via text, less trust, less engagement.

    No. First, I don't use paypal directly anymore, I use an invoicing service. Second, I am the one reaching to my clients, they don't come to me, I filter them, so less chance of scams. Sometimes they try to delay payments, but that's pretty much it. I'm not a big agency with a huge number of clients to have this problem.

    Read the first pages.

    Man you're killing it! Read through the whole thread and I'm truly amazed. I started in January too but I fucked it up in no time, so earnings were shit. You've given me the kick I needed to start hustling again, keep up the good work!

    You got it wrong. I said I don't use paypal DIRECTLY anymore, not that I don't use it. And.co payments are sent to me via paypal.

    Updates:

    Ok, so as you know, I'm very close to 10k this month and in the past few days I really pushed it and hustled hard, but I had been really unlucky to lose 2 deals very close to scoring. One was sooooooo close, got the guy saying he will send the money during the call. He was from an older referral list and managed to convince him to buy a $600 website, which would've been enough to reach the goal. We talked for 1 hour and a half, and wrote down details of contract, but he ended up not paying.

    I have an agreement to upgrade another adwords package but the money won't come through till October. Also I have a due payment on Monday (last day of September) and that should be enough to reach the goal, but I can't risk it, gotta get some money fast.

    For some, this whole struggle in the last week doesn't make much sense and won't make a difference money-wise but I got caught in this game of reaching 10k so much that I have to do everything I can, I MUST reach it now!

    I have pricing on my website and a contact form, but nobody visits my website really. I get my clients by outreach, so we usually communicate directly. Website is useful if you are getting leads via paid ads or SEO.

    Loving this journey. Reckon if you focused on attracting min 1k/mo clients you could get to your goal in 1 month

    Sorry guys. Don't want to be disrespectful. But I can not believe this kind of stories except with an evidence. Everybody could open a thread and talk how much he earns and then lie.
