    We've had incredible luck with disability insurances. Today we got a letter that one of them will increase the monthly payouts from $140 to 850 (minus taxes), due to changes in some sort of laws and regulations. We won't have to do anything, the payout will increase automatically.

    Gaja that is great news on the disability insurance, though I'd be nervous of the laws changing back with the incoming administration. Maybe treat that as gravy and don't get dependent on it, you know?

    I am having a fantastic January. Made more already than I did in January 2015 and January 2016 combined.

    This week I have a webinar and a half day seminar scheduled, so hopefully I'll get last minute signups for that. I also opened the registration on the two new study groups. One of them is going to be publicized by my professional association, which should help attendance.

    I have also partnered with them to teach a class, so that will bring in some extra income. They also offered to pay me to record voiceovers for some of the class presentations if I am interested.

    MsMarie: Luckily Mr Trump's powers do not reach all the way to Norwegian law. We are having an election in September, but things don't usually change that fast, even if powers shift. Still, we are going put the entire amount towards savings, so even if the laws do change, it will only impact our savings rate.

    I'm traveling for work nine days this month, and at least five days next month. So far, I've spent less than 10% of the per diem, and that was only because I had to stay a night longer than expected. Also, I'm still waiting for the reimbursements for the travels in December. Since those were all cash flowed, it will feel like a bonus when the money gets here in February.

    I am having a fantastic January. Today I reached an income amount that equals what I made with the side business in January 2014, 2015, and 2016 COMBINED!!! Let's hope this bodes well for the rest of the year, as January has often been one of my lowest months of the year.

    How's everyone else doing?

    February is starting off nicely. I've had some AMAZING opportunities arise this week - being contacted to set up some study groups for a MD school district, being asked to speak at an executive leadership forum in April and getting ready to teach a class for an association starting next week. Several opportunities for more revenue for this year. I'm excited.

    Having a great month. Getting a lot accomplished and several registrations open for future study groups. Already close to hitting my goal for the month.

    So far my total year to date income milestones are running about 3 weeks ahead of last year.

    How are the rest of you doing?

    Met my goal for the month. I've passed $7,000 in year to date income. 2017 has been going REALLY well so far. Let's see if we can keep it up.

    My goals are somewhat more modest than some people on here since right now I'm focusing on my baby and then will be returning to work full-time. But, my goal is to make an extra $60 a week tutoring once I go back to work (that's one tutoring session a week) and currently I am aiming to earn $20 a week on mechanical turk!

    LG, every goal is personal. A baby is a clearly a priority worth focusing on. I think $20 a week is a good starting point. Welcome to the challenge.

    My challenge has been going great this year. Passed $8K for year to date income. So far my income milestones are about two weeks ahead of last year and I haven't really gotten into my better income earning months yet. Woo hoo!
