|A few months back, I wrote my first freelance diary explaining a lot of details on what it takes to be an entrepreneur full time. I get a lot of questions like: So, Maca, how do you make a living out of this? how does a blogger make a living from a lifestyle blog?I’ve been explaining in detail to my family (high five, my mom gets it now!) and a lot of people, so I thought to dedicate a full post about the unknown financial world (that isn’t a mystery or rocket science) with tons of details of what is like planning at the begining of the week, and bi-weekly in the HeyMaca world (and not the blogging industry as a whole), I’ll be talking from my very own perspective and I’m going to lay out everything just for you, as much as I can…. just because we are talking numbers in here, I want to tell you this is all relative and it varies, there’s plenty of learning and personal experiences for each of us.|
Our weekly tasks
This is how I usually organize my Mondays and prepare my week:
Our bi-weekly tasks
I find these activations are super fun, interactive and one of my favourite things to do in the blogging world. These ambassadorships include photo sessions (as a “model”) and partnering as a co-branded collaboration. Our latest examples: La Vie en Rose and RBC.
Our brand new studio in Montreal is the newest adventure and a new income source we are building (as we speak). The space is fully styled and equipped as a little Pinterest heaven and ready to be rented by other creators and artists in the city. We have photographers, videographers and workshops hosted since March. Stay tuned for our official reveal in a few days!
Coming up soon in the studio, we’re planning new DIY, social media and entrepreneur workshops including tons of goodies and surprises. We’ll explore sponsored workshops as an extra side of income.
Almost ready (pinch me) to launch, our new lifestyle brand will start as an online shop and in selected point of sales in Montreal. I can’t anticipate this as a solid income strategy, crossing all my fingers it’ll work, and as I’ve been saying to myself since I started, you gotta take risks to get rewards, right?
