Can you really make a full-time income blogging?

You’re passionate about writing, but your first priority is your family. If you knew how to effectively invest your time and talents in a way that would turn that passion into profits — simultaneously blessing those who read your work — you’d jump at the chance. But you don’t know where to start….

The stories we’re about to share will show you how three women learned to convert their writing passion into a stream of income that transformed their lives.

Let’s start with Rosemarie:

Rosemarie Groner is a blogger at The Busy Budgeter who first registered for Elite Blog Academy in the fall of 2014. At the time, she was a stay-at-home mom who spent her days running a small daycare from her home plus working two other part time jobs while she worked on her blog at night. She was tired. 

She and her husband were desperately trying to pay off debt, pinching pennies everywhere they could, and she was literally running herself ragged.

When she found Elite Blog Academy, she knew the comprehensive framework it provided was exactly what she needed to get on track, but it felt like a huge investment, one she wasn’t even sure they could really afford, given their precarious financial situation.

But, at her husband’s encouragement, she resolved to take the class seriously and to do every single assignment in order, not moving ahead until each one was completed.

She started in phase one, with refining her message, and in the process, she determined with crystal clarity that her mission was to provide financial advice for people who were overwhelmed with life, and who struggle with time management.

From there she moved to step two and began growing her audience, and then, as her traffic started to take off, she was ready to transition into phase three and begin focusing on monetization.

And now, as she moves into phase four, building her business, she is equipped to refine and build upon this framework of success she has created for herself. She has a plan and she knows exactly what tasks to tackle every single day.

Speaking about the transformation she’s made over the past two years, Rosemarie explains:

“I was making $18/month from my small blog in September 2014 when I joined Elite Blog Academy. By following the framework, I drastically increased every month and am now making more than $30,000 a month from my blog, and I understand how to sustain that income.

More importantly, my life is completely different. Before Elite Blog Academy, I was running a day care of 4 kids, had 2 additional side hustles, and worked on the blog at night. I was exhausted! Now I work 20 hours a week, have financial freedom and a thriving business. EBA completely changed my life.

When it comes to enrolling in EBA, the ONLY question that should be in your mind is ‘am I committed to doing this?’ Even if you are living paycheck to paycheck, it’s worth it. When you see what’s possible, it is such a small investment, and if you are committed to doing the work, you will see results.”

Although Rosemary’s story is amazing, it is not unique. Let me introduce you to Tasha:

When Tasha started Elite Blog Academy in 2014, she was a partner in her corporate law firm, where she defended medical professionals in big, multi-million dollar malpractice cases. She was also the mom to three-year old twin girls. To say she was busy and stressed out was an understatement!

She started her blog, Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body, as a creative outlet, but she just didn’t feel like she had time to figure out all the ins and outs of blogging. She was interested in enrolling in EBA because she thought it might be easier to let someone else do all the research and point her in the right direction, but she was worried about making such big investment into what was little more than a hobby at that point.

Of her time spent in EBA, she says:“I jumped into the course right away when I purchased it in September 2014. I immediately learned about creating awesome content, perfect pins and going back to optimize old content.

Truly, I have never worked harder in my life, especially since I was still working full-time as a lawyer! Blogging is HARD WORK. Results do not come for free and Elite Blog Academy is not magic. It will not do anything for you if you don’t put the work in. But I put in the work in and within a year I had more than tripled my page views and was earning more than $10,000 a month through my blog.

On January 1, 2016, 16 months after starting Elite Blog Academy, I gave up my partnership at my firm to blog full-time. I am now earning MORE than I was as a private practice attorney from my blog. My blog and income continue to grow and I don’t plan to slow down any time soon. And more importantly, I couldn’t be happier! As far as I am concerned, the sky is the limit!”

And the last story I will share belongs to Saira:

Saira Perl spent almost 3 years trying to turn her blog Mom Resource into a business all by herself. Without realizing it, she was spending too much time on activities that weren’t benefiting her readers or her bottom line. In September 2015 she joined Elite Blog Academy & everything changed. 

What EBA means to Saira’s family:

“I started blogging in 2013 when we were living in Paris. I was taking a break from corporate life to stay home with my baby & was experimenting with blogging as a way to make a living & work from home. 

For almost 3 years I followed other online “experts” without much focus or success. By the end of 2015 I felt burnt out & frustrated. I decided to take the leap & join EBA as my final attempt to really find out whether blogging could be a career. If EBA didn’t deliver, I would quit blogging & return to work.

Well, I’m still blogging today because I saw immediate results with EBA! It totally changed my focus – instead of obsessing over getting more & more readers, I starting diving deeper into topics my existing readers were already asking for… For me, that was Twitter. 

Ruth helped me figure out how to deliver more value to my audience. She gave me the strategy & confidence to write my own online course, Twitter Legend!

Before EBA, $500/month sounded like a dream goal. Within 1 month of joining Elite Blog Academy I made over $1,000/month, and now I consistently earn $1,000-$3,000/month. 

For my family, earning a real income online means I have the freedom to work around OUR schedule. With little kids at home, I love that I can still put my family first while pursing my passions part-time, from home.

I will admit when I joined EBA it felt like a HUGE financial investment – I barely earned anything from my blog & the EBA price tag would require everything I made. 

Looking back now, EBA was obviously, easily the BEST investment I ever made in myself, by blog & my career. This is a game-changer & I only wish I had taken it sooner to avoid all that wasted time, energy & frustration.

But I’m not done. EBA is a massive course & I have taken my time going through each step. There is always more to improve on. 

For example, I wrote my course without understanding how complicated it could be to promote a course. I was THRILLED to read through Ruth’s brand new EBA Product Launch Playbook where she shares the exact checklists & email sequences she uses to promote everything from her planner to her book to EBA

This is the kind of practical detail Ruth shares & if you are really looking to turn your blog into your business, EBA has everything you need.”
