You all remember Kodak, right? She is back and excited about the possibilities in June.

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the turn of the calendar to June 1. I love a new and fresh start, and I have been just slogging through May to reach this point.

As you can see from the picture, Kodak is excited about it too. Her tag even says “I’m all ears” because she wants to know what I am talking about when it comes to $5,000 in one month.

Don’t worry, I’m not suggesting that I am going to make $5,000 on Medium.

In fact, I have much more modest goals for my earnings and growth here.

I know that there are a handful of elite accounts that can secure that kind of money from their Medium writing alone, but that’s not me (yet…).

However, I do have other writing clients and resources where I also generate some not so insignificant income.

Want to watch every moment of the journey and see if I am capable of pulling off this goal? Don’t forget to sign up for my e-mail alerts so you can see where the stats are EVERY DAY.

Isn’t $5,000 in a Month Like a Ridiculous Amount of Money?
