Did I Make Money Publishing on Kindle?

Around 2013, I threw my hat into the self-publishing industry just to give it a whirl. I never imagined the amount of success I’d realize, then again I couldn’t even fathom the amount of time, energy and efforts I had to put into making it work.

Sure, I can support my family on my earnings and still have money to spare. Yes, I’m afforded a little more attention now than if I would’ve stayed at my nine to five job. But, was it all worth it?

Absolutely! And, are my results typical?

Well, hear me out first.

Not too long ago, I was on a webinar hosted by the illustrious internet marketer, Frank Kern. There’s no doubt, Frank knows what he’s talking about and appears to be ridiculously wealthy from it.

Not even 5 minutes into the training, he shattered my perceptions. Paraphrasing him, he stated that his results were far from typical.

In fact, he stated the most of the people watching his training would not be successful at all.

The truth of the matter, he shared, was that most people wouldn’t put in the time it takes to become good at internet marketing. Furthermore, there is no magic bullet or surefire hack to an overnight victory.

Results Not Typical

This leads me to what the vast majority of people achieve when they commit to Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing.

Quite a few of you will make a few bucks and heck, you may even realize a pretty big payday. But, within the next year or so, you may not even be around to realize that this business is a slow burn.

You can’t become an overnight success and the few who do are simply the unicorns of this business, lightning in a bottle if you will.

Now I am FAR from being an overnight success nor will I make outrageous income claims saying I’m the second coming of E.L. James. I’m simply sticking and staying to true to who I am and why I got into this business in the first place.

That’s what is keeping my head above the water, paying bills and living life on my own terms.

Making money with Kindle e-books is 100% possible, but a deeper question bears worth in visiting.

How much money do you want to make in Kindle Publishing? Because I can almost guarantee you it’s possible to pump out a book today and make a few bucks.

If you want to make more than a few bucks, then it’s going to require a lot more time, energy and attention…

Can you afford that?

If not, then I suggest you jump into Kindle Publishing simply as a hobby at first. When you get a little success, then excellent!

However, if you don’t draw a single dime, then at least you didn’t quit your day job in hopes of caviar dreams and champagne wishes lying in the Amazon self-publishing platform.
