003 Building a Million-Dollar Blog with Michelle Schroeder-Gardner

Today’s guest is Michelle from http://www.makingsenseofcents.com/.

Michelle was kind enough to chat with me a bit about her incredibly successful personal finance blog.

How Michelle Schroeder makes over $250k:month from her blog

We dive deep into a few nuts in bolts, including Pinterest marketing, affiliate marketing (and how it makes her substantial income every single month), as well as how she plans out her content more than 3 months in advance.

Michelle is a delight, and her blog is truly world-class (I mean that).

002 From Band Director to $20k / month – Millennial Money man

Bobby is a real gent.

He has an incredible story, and was kind enough to sit with me for over an hour and discuss life, blogging, freelancing, and hiring blog coaches.

I want a blog coach…

In this episode we dive deep into

  • how he grew so damn quickly (less than 2 years to $15k / mo)
  • how he reinvests in his blog and himself (hint: learning)
  • how he approaches influencer outreach,
  • how he paid off an absurd amount of student loans (he does blog about personal finance after all)
  • and more…

Hope you enjoy this episode, and be sure to leave him some love at https://millennialmoneyman.com/
