  1. This is so helpful! I really enjoyed the podcast, and I absolutely admire both Robert and yourself for all you do! I’m hoping to follow with a side hustle of my blog Simple and Personal Finance, and eventually as a financial counselor/coach. Cheers!!

  2. Thanks for checking it out! I’m in the process of getting accredited to be a financial counselor, but I’m currently a fundraiser at an independent K-12 school in Santa Monica.

  3. Thanks so much for this podcast and your blog. I am in the beginning stages of creating a blog with the hope to monetize it so this information is truly helpful.

  4. As a fellow blogger (in the same niche in fact), I love hearing stories like this! I’m not earning 3,000 a month, but I’m off to a good start with my blog and this type of stuff just gives me more hope and motivation.

    I’d like to chat about this a little bit. Is there a way I can get in touch with you?

  5. Another great example of getting big benefits from “laying brick by brick” over a period of time.
