Ever imagine leaving your job to blog full time? The risk may be high but if your determination and perseverance is as strong as this guy, then why not?
On today’s episode, let’s all take a peek at a day in the life of a full-time blogger of the Millennial Money Man blog, our very own Bobby Hoyt. Let’s learn what it’s like to be a successful full-time blogger. Know how he manages his business, his work/life balance, and the things he is focusing on at the moment to grow his blog even more.
“I do just want to say for the new bloggers— one, I remember exactly the way it’s like when it was just me and it was just me writing content trying to figure all this stuff out on my own, but I think if you focus on what I mentioned earlier, creating the best damn content that you can; and focus on learning how to distribute that through email and grow your email list. If you do those two things you’re going to be successful and you’re going to make money. If you focus on everything, like grow every following you have… you’re not going to be as successful, like you’re just going to burn out.” – Bobby Hoyt
