How I Made Pinterest My Full-Time Job
What!? Yep, you heard me right! Being a Pinterest expert has become my full-time job!
And you know what the best part about it is?
I set my own hours! I work when I want to work. “Full-time” can mean a half hour a day or 7 hours a day… I work when I want to work!
How did I get here?
First, let me give you some clarification…
I do not work for Pinterest in any way. When I say my “full-time job,” I simply mean that I spend A LOT of time on the Pinterest platform growing my blog.
I am talking about creating pins, scheduling pins, pinning content, researching Pinterest strategies, etc.
The money I make comes from my blog, and all of the traffic from my blog comes from Pinterest!
Okay, let’s move on!
Well it’s really a crazy story, because just 8 months ago, I was working full-time as a certified public accountant (CPA) for a small firm in Dallas, TX.
My boyfriend, Alex, was working full-time as a personal trainer, and he had big business plans. He, unlike myself, always knew he wanted to go into business for himself. He was just looking for the right path.
Fast forward a little bit, and we decide to start create a health and fitness blog, together, because it was a passion we both shared.
We worked nights and weekends and during every other second that we weren’t working our other full-time jobs.
After 3 months of this double time, we decided to give this thing everything we had and quit our jobs (BEFORE we were even making a dime!). This was in January of 2016.
We had no guarantee that anything would work out, but we knew that it somehow had to, because it was the only option left!
It took us less than a month to start making a little money, and we were in the green just 2 months after that! This post talks about our first few months of business and how we doubled our revenues every month!
By July of 2016, we had made over 40k in just one month! This can be seen in our July Income Report.
All of this success was thanks to one awesome and underrated (for business) social media platform: Pinterest!
