As I write this post it is just after 4 in the morning on my fifth day here in Finland. I am here visiting with family, and we are at the lake house, located about 90 kilometers northwest of Helsinki. I had promised them I would not be on the computer all the time during our two weeks together, so I decided to experiment with the idea of working just one hour each day.
My goal is to earn one hundred dollars a day based on what I would be doing during that hour. I am not counting any income I earn from my own products or recurring membership sites, as well as any affiliate income I earn on a regular basis. This is all new income from affiliate products I am promoting during that hour each day.
So far I am way ahead of my goal, and I wanted to share what I am doing to make this possible. I went back to my 5 pronged approach to making money online, a concept I’ve been teaching my students for about three years now. The 5 prongs are blogging, article marketing, social media, teleseminars, and affiliate marketing. Each day, during the hour I am online. I am doing something from this list, along with reading and answering some email.
I have now written two blog posts and two articles, a 5 page short report, and commented in several forums. I spend a few minutes on Twitter each day letting people know what I am doing. I have not been able to access my Facebook account because I am in a remote location and could not answer the security questions they asked. I am also using a computer that is completely in Finnish, a language I do not speak. This means that I will need to ask for help when converting and saving my short report as a PDF document.
The hour limitation each day requires that I stay focused and organized. It also means that I am outside of my comfort zone because of the language. Could I continue this for an even longer period of time and still make money? Definitely.
When I think of my students who are the most successful with earning money online quickly, they all have one thing in common; they are all learning the basics from Stephen Beck’s easy to follow program. This is a step by step program that encompasses my 5 pronged approach and includes videos to show you exactly how to complete each step easily. Take a look and see if this would make a difference for you. I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

Your experiment delights me on so many levels. I’m following you with great interest. Somehow I’m not surprised you’re ahead of your goal already. You seem to have a laser focus that the Finnish language can’t blur. I’m taking too long doing my steps. Must. Emulate. Connie!
