Four Months and Counting on the Yakezie Challenge

Proud Member of Yakezie

Earlier this year I decided to take on the Yakezie Challenge. I have always been a firm believer in setting goals and this was the perfect opportunity for me to do just that with a brand new website.

By joining the challenge it has given me the motivation to constantly write new articles that help my readers become more savvy with their finances. Throughout the process I have met some incredible bloggers that I can’t wait to meet in September at FinCon.

Now that I am four months in, I couldn’t be more pleased. I have lowered my Alexa ranking from 5.6 Million to 186,000 and my traffic is up almost 700%. I am looking forward to more hard work over the next couple of months and beyond.

Are you on the Yakezie Challenge? How are you doing so far?

      The last couple of years I have been running with my other online projects and I forgot how hard and time consuming it is to start a new website. I love the challenge and having met an awesome group of people always help to. haha

    Wow – you’re doing fantastic! I am part of it as well – numbers have risen from something way out there to something in the mid 300,000’s!

      Way to go, you’ll be below 200,000 before you know it :-)
