A great post Jon. I enjoyed reading it and learn a lot. I was particularly impressed by your take the one metric that matters. Corey Pemberton Apr 03, This is insanely valuable. Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to put this together!
My only qualm is I wish I had seen this stuff earlier. Congratulations on your massive success so far, and I wish you even more going forward. Judy Hackett Apr 03, Thanks so much Jon.

Larry Apr 03, Jon Morrow is the gold standard in this arena, and this post encapsulates that.
He consulted with me at the launch of my blog, and these 20 principles feel like evolutions of that great advice. Jon Morrow Apr 04, Thanks for this, Larry. Daniel Apr 03, I think the most important question you should ask is — before doing anything else — who are these people signing up for my mailing list?
Bree Apr 03, Time and time again, I have to repeat many if not all! But the ones who learn will definitely see better results and probably become one of those bloggers who gets paid to do what they love! Spreading the Blogging Gospel, and all that. Mette Apr 03, Wow this is the best blog post I have read in ages! But where can I read more about your products mentioned in lesson 3? Mette Apr 04, I can recommend it highly.
Brian Zeng Apr 04, Nikhil Apr 04, These tips are awesome. All these points are pretty important for bloggers to start his journey as a professional blogger. And you are right most of the world thinks bloggers are fools?
But we are fools for changing the world. Thank you for this awesome guide. Zara Apr 04, Thanks for a great post. I have printed it out as I always like to read my inspirational stuff again and again.
I am thinking of teaching a creative writing course to senior school kids, because in my country South Africa job opportunities are scarce and education expensive.
I want to teach young people that you can create your own opportunities through writing and growing to be an expert in a chosen field. This way they will also improve their confidence in approaching opportunities when it do arise and with the right attitude. I am a real estate professional and writes a blog on aspects which I have noticed my clients are ignorant about. My readership has risen through the year and all my sales last year came from readers of my blog.
Thanks again for the information you present so well and with a sense of humour. I still cannot afford one of your courses but I read every one and apply all that I learn.
Praise be to Your Royal Awesomeness! Aqilah Norazman Apr 04, Martin Edwards Apr 04, Hi Jon, As usual a top knotch post full of excellent advice, very easy to understand and follow. Just studying your posts is an object lesson in how these things are done.
I think the primary problem is that we have been brought up to do business in a particular way. You make something therefore you get paid for it. Most business people feel there is something inherently wrong about a system where you provide huge amounts of valuable content free of charge and without obligation. The peception is that the model cannot be susstainable. The key insights here, in my humble opinion are that: This takes a lot of hard work — just the right sort of work!
The process works as a filter rather than a funnel. You expose your work to thousands, you hope to add value to those thousands for no cost to yourself but of those thousands there will be a few hundred who need your service and they pay for those things in proportion to the cost to you in terms of time or resources.
The reason this works is because the incremental cost of publishing acceptible digital content is practically zero so the blogger has far more leverage than any writers prior to the digital age. Bill Apr 04, This is all great information from someone who has had connections and still has connections for year. Your bragging is embarrassing and shameful! To all the bloggers out there…STOP sucking up to the very small, elite and narcissistic group of self-proclaimed influencers out there.
I think it takes years of working your ass off with little or no reward to produce jaw dropping, spectacular content that CANNOT go unnoticed. And anyone willing to perform at such a high level, for so long, will inevitably find opportunities being thrown at them — by copyblogger or problogger, the huffington post etc.
This principle applies to just about anything: The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Abe Lincoln, Einstein, Edison, and just about any other successful person I can think of worked their ass off for a large part of their lives before they saw any success. They created the right place and the right time for themselves as a direct result of their grit and sincere effort.
I think you may well be right if you are saying that few of us will have the skills required to attract and service a lucrative and large enough market to earn the sort of sums quoted.
Nevertheless, may I just say that Jon has freely given us, not only a system but the commercial logic and reasonings behind that system. Now, once you and I have taken advantage of that info. Of course, timing is almost everything but with the amount of free flowing, easy to read, writing that Jon provides, which is the hallmark of all good communications, plus incorporating such useful content, then I like to think that if we could follow that example then eventually we yes, you and I, Bill would be rewarded with fans and finance.
So, I do hope, Bill, that you are in the midst of preparing an inspiring blog full of up-liftment that we can all enjoy. In the meantime, please accept my kind regards and my wishes for your success in the future.
People who start to blog always thing of making money which tends them toward failure. In my opinion bloggers should choose the topic which interests them.
There are many top blog topics to make money online but you can get success only with the topic you like to write on. Try to choose your topic for the blog. Sherice Jacob Apr 04, Is it more-so a matter of who you know versus what you know? Mike Gecko Rock Resort Apr 04, Some meet these influential people more quickly by complete luck of the draw, others need to keep plugging along longer.
The system works either way, and whether or not it works better for others is irrelevant, all systems in life work better for some than others. Jon Morrow Apr 05, When I was a beginner, I made a list of all the people I wanted to know, and I mapped out a strategy for building a relationship with each of them. I made sure of it. Sherice Jacob Apr 05, Bobby Apr 04, But man it feels right.
These lessons are profound, Jon. I was wondering if you knew of any specific resources that focused less on how to be a successful blogger per se, and more so on how to run a blog that helps make your business successful?
One example is this: So yeah, my comment is getting a bit long-winded here, but how can blogs that are meant to funnel traffic to a business site best gain traction without paying for the right to write guest posts? Peter Kanayo Apr 04, Mike Gecko Rock Resort Apr 05, The problem up to now, as I mentioned above, is that nobody wants to let us guest post, they want us to pay to do a sponsored post since our blog is attached to our business.
If my blog was MexicoMike. Gagan Masoun Apr 05, I really liked your premium tips. All bloggers should follow the rules of blogging if they are on starting point. Sudip Apr 05, To be honest, this is the first time I am here in your blog. Someone in my FB friend list shared this article and this is really a great and well-documented article for a newbie blogger like me. Point 6 about deliberately delaying the sale happens to have this added benefit of giving the blogger more insight into the audience through the way they interact with the blog.
The posts they read, the comments they leave etc. LeAllyson Meyer Apr 05, I am so very glad I found your website and read this post.
I am so inexperienced in all this, but I do see that you take a totally different approach to the many others I have read. It is so refreshing. I will go back reread, study and apply. Santel Apr 05, Thank Jon for this awesome post.
I usually scan the contents on the web but your writing keep me reading every single word you wrote. I am struggling in generate more income from my online business.
Your approach is showing me a new way. I actually have my first Kindle book which I sold only two copies until now. Sandeep Khatri Apr 05, Vikas Kumar Apr 05, Now, I had a question. I am just 14 years old and I am entering the blog-o-sphere as an intermediate.
I am recently also trying guest post and on my 5 attempt my article was accepted at Hongkiat. So in the end I come up with… did I choose the wrong niche? Am I a looser then? Please answer as I will be waiting. Amandah Apr 05, I like engaging with readers and bloggers and having a dialogue with them. But I know some bloggers are turning off their comments. Others may not care at all. Also, I think allowing comments on your blog makes you approachable and builds a community.
Plus, if you solely build your community on social media networks, what happens when they disappear? You never know, it could happen. Like most things, there are pros and cons. Not sure there is a correct answer. Just a personal decision. John Corcoran Apr 06, This is excellent advice, Jon. Jon Morrow Apr 07, John Corcoran Apr 07, I have a copy printed up which I keep under my pillow at night OK, maybe not… but I might as well.
Bastiaan Apr 06, Best post ever on BBT Jon. It open my eyes and showed me which direction to go with my blog.. Stan Apr 07, I always loved your style, you make everything sound so attention-grabbing. Tilen Apr 07, I would just add to your 15 regarding e-mail subscribers. More specifically, people who like you and trust you. Charlie Seymour Jr Apr 07, First I was impressed by your back story and then I was impressed with the quality of your work and recommendations.
Though most of my income is generated by helping others 1 get found online and then 2 engage through video, I do use my blog to attract people to me so they can see the services and products I offer. Maurice Apr 08, Just one question about guestblogging. Jon Morrow Apr 09, They warned people against spammy guest blogging, which is a completely different activity.
It confused a lot of people. Basically, take everything you reccomend, then only do what is absolutely nessicary for that tactic to work. Vince Apr 09, I wish I can achieve that. Still long way to go. Abhishek Tavasalkar Apr 10, You are such of a man who blows away all of my assumptions with each and every post.
Have a great day Jon. I am a true worshiper of you and BBT. Stefano Apr 11, Great posts and tips. What about local blogs, like non-english website? Jon Morrow Apr 23, You have much less competition, so it should be fairly effective. Ryan Biddulph Apr 12, Arun Kallarackal Apr 12, Took some time to go through the whole post. But the time spent was well spent! I must admit that fact! This article not only shared much valuable knowledge, but also reignited my flair for enhancing my affiliate sales and has inspired me!
And thanks to Kingged, where I actually found the link to this post. Leonard Apr 15, Okay, well I guess I have to be Mr. I want to start off by saying I really do like this blog. But I have a problem or at the very least, a couple questions pertaining to your blog post, Jon. So…is everyone who reads this blog in the business or currently trying to get into the business of helping teach other people to make money on the Internet? In other words, Jon is an incredible writer, communicator, and hard worker—no question.
And so, I guess my question here would simply be—would a person who follows your blog about TV shows be interested in paying for a TV-related webinar you created? Would a person who follows your blog about vinyl record collecting want to buy an online course from you? Would a person who follows a travel blog you created want to call you up for coaching lessons? Why is he going to listen to me?
For example, the entertainment blogger you mentioned. Usually, the only way to monetize those blogs is advertising, and as a consequence, those bloggers almost never make much money. I have a client who makes a ton of money in the interior decorating space. Most of her readers are moms looking for interior decorating tips. I could list hundreds that have nothing to do with making money. Popular bloggers accept guest post for the same reasons popular bands have opening acts. When an up-and-coming band auditions to be an opening act, do you think the more famous band cares where they have played?
All they care about is the strength of the audition. If the up-and-coming band is good, they get the gig. Same thing with guest blogging. Yoav Apr 15, But you could help them lose weight or be more productive and make a bunch of money in the process. Making money is not limited to helping other people make money. Ann07 Apr 15, This is such an awesome content from Jon Morrow. It inspires me a lot and I hope other bloggers will be inspired too after reading these valuable and effective lessons on how to build a profitable blog.
The lessons given are practical and are delivered wisely. Chery Schmidt Apr 15, I think it is a great idea, why not they just may come in handy right.
I also teach others to do the same. I absolutely loved this post. Sites like Kingged for instance getter done.. I did land here today Via this site where I also commented and kingged this post.. Apr 17, This article has gotten my mind churning and working in so many new and exciting ways. Thank you for sharing your insights! Andy Koehn Apr 20, Can this turn into money? I fear your answer…or lack of one. Anything can be monetized.
Sounds to me like you might have a good foundation for a parenting blog. Adny Koehn Dec 30, Anyhow…thank you for the direction.
And I joined SBO. Sachin Apr 23, I found the link to this blog in a post on unbounce. Alex Apr 23, A ridiculously useful post! So much here I wish I knew before — but better to learn now than never! Linda Chow Apr 24, Hello Jon, the lessons are detailed and comprehensive. Frankly speaking, I have never read a blog post that carefully like today and I really benefit a lot from it. However, I still have a question regarding to this post, that is, if I am not an expert in any field, what kind of blog topic for blog should I start with and how to get enough traffic to my blog?
I agree with you that we should not sell ads but should sell our own products or affiliate products via our blog. Anyhow, I will still focus on your blog and hope I will learn more valuable knowledge through your blog. Ulysses Alves Apr 29, I always judge a blog post by the number of comments it receives from readers, and this post here has a lot and lots of people interested in not just reading, but also in discussing about what you wrote.
Thanks for sharing those guidelines whith us. Lynne May 06, Mihaela May 07, I was wondering how all that applies to someone like me that is a creative. My ideal readers are not fellow artists that I could teach something, but people that love their interior and want to brighten it with some colourful and inspiring art. Thank you so much for you response and I will definitely come back and read your blog more often.
Alex May 07, Just thinking aloud here — but maybe you could put a guide together to help people choose the best art for their homes? Maybe in time offer a consultancy service — I bet there are some people who would pay someone to choose the art for them?
Great suggestions8 I will have to ponder uppon them. I was thinking to beggin with a free e-calendar. Do you believe that could encourage people to subscribe? Jessica Oman May 09, Very useful, applicable and dare I say inspiring post, Jon! It would be nice to have time for both! Great post though, I will be bookmarking and sharing, cuz you asked this one. Peter May 10, Olamosh May 20, Thanks for this wonderful post, infact it make my day.
Am a blogger, but this articles makes me realise a lot of things. You hit the hammer on the nail directly, all the point you mentioned are great and the explanation are wonderful. Esther Molenaar Jun 05, That goes against everything I learned, but it makes sense. Even when you have a small subscriber list. Also not what I was taught. I was led to believe that you should start, with free, then have somewhat cheap product, before you have your premium product. Patrick Kihara Jun 07, Just what I have been looking for.
I realized that I have been spending lots of hours creating content for my blog but doing nothing when it comes to outreaching and promiting my content. I guess it is time to write some awesome guest posts. Gary R Jun 26, It get s easier as you learn and get comfortable with your chosen subject matter and style. Jabo Aguirre Jun 29, Terry Hopper Jul 01, Very well done and thank you so much for sharing such n important post.
I also appreciated all the comments you generated from some very experienced bloggers. Rais Zada Jul 04, Dustin Venture Blend Magazine Jul 09, By reading your post, i feel i can really proceed further with the product that i have.
Sophie Mahir Jul 13, Awesome post — I am really inspired and happy to build up my blog step by step the way you have! David Weightman Jul 14, Blogging can really lead us to success. With deeper understanding about success in blogging we can afford to have a wealthy life in the future. What an awesome post! It goes against everything everyone else is teaching but it actually makes sense!
Sharmilaa Jul 16, Andrew Walton Jul 18, Totally, irrevocably sold on long content! One more step to take along the road. Valdengrave Okumu Jul 18, This is great advice. I am an artist and I just recently started blogging on my site. I am keen on applying these tips to my blogs. I think the domain name also matters as what I think is that shorter the domain name more the traffic is on the website and also the topic of your blog is important and google also preffers topics like blogging, tv shows etc.
Xihla Jul 23, Thank you for putting something like this together. Alberto Rendon Jul 28, Donna DeVane Aug 11, I just got started a month or so ago and found your blog through a Google search. I will put these tips into action. Thank you, Donna Devane. Thank you for your advice. I currently have Google Adsense on my blog and I offer advertising banner spots on my website through micro job sites. If I can get my blog on that level, I could quit my job and work from home.
Thank you so much! Adam Dukes Aug 14, Thank you for being open and honest and sharing what to do and what not to do. Really appreciate the insights. Vinay Kumar Aug 19, Sammy Kikwai Aug 23, These are some of the best I have read in a while Jon. Well, am a blogger in a relatively different online environment — Africa to be precise. Hopefully, over time I will find the right formula to bissect this difficult market.
Glenys Aug 25, I love the metrics that you provide Jon, such as how much income one should be able to expect per subscriber per month. This post provides great advice; lesson 10 is priceless. Vinay Kumar Aug 27, Alex Aug 27, I also wanted to ask you how is this applicable to a blog that has as a mission educating people about science.
Rafia Aug 27, This article is really informative. I was wasting my time on social media ads. Thanks for the suggestions. Rhandell Mitchell Aug 30, I really enjoyed this post. Since I came online and started my own blog I never really had an identity for my blog. One of the most frustrating things for me since I began blogging was getting more engagement on my blog posts.
When I first started I went from nothing to around , on Alexa in about 3 to 6 months. After that, I had a long hiatus of no content and flew back up past 10,, I think now that I have finally started to have a better understanding of how to provide value.
Avoaja Sep 07, Well the focus on SEO for new bloggers is crazy, some believe that is all they need to succeed, Guest blogging is a great idea I think I will tow that line. Sanjay Sajeev Sep 09, Writing a post contains — words may be a bit difficult to me. But i must realize that nothing can be achieved without hard working.
If we write a long valuable content like this, there is a great chance for bookmarking the page. So it is a great innovative strategy. Sep 13, Excellent article and very true points! I love spending some time on blog and making sure it is organized, as this will make it easier for visitors to follow.
Mine is about creative stories and thoughts of mine and includes a store and chat people can spend some time on as well. Awesome post dude I have found some cool ideas from your post that might help me to increase comments on my blog. Christina Sep 17, Starting now… actually about 10 minutes ago, I changed my approach. Thanks for all the goodies to work with! Alonzo Williams Sep 19, Anyone needing to learn more about how to build a network marketing business can find great information on your blog!
Very glad to now you my friend. Have Great day and keep on moving forward. Sean Sep 23, Great post, liked the content some great ideas. It definitely got me thinking. But the thing is I write short stories, reviews, articles and the like on my blog. Hitesh Sep 26, This post is amazing. I am a newbie and had no idea about how to proceed. This was an eye opener. I was investing too much in SEO, though I neither had good content nor links with the influences. I am really grateful that you brought out this topic.
Anita Belli Oct 03, Turned all of my perceptions upside down! Angela Oct 10, Will definitely be coming back here to follow your tips. Thanks for sharing this info!
Allan Oct 11, Jon, you just rock! This is the greatest post I ever read about blogging and monetizing a blog. I know some bloggers who are able to make a living k per year with their blogs but it took them years to build a following and thousands of posts too… Your inverse funnel idea is incredible. Abbey Oct 22, I read your words post almost without blinking. Isabel Oct 26, This is one of the best posts about the subject I have ever come across.
Thanks for your insight and for spending your time writing this superb piece of advice. Favour Femi-Oyewole Oct 29, It is true there are lots of sites that means opposite of what they say or write but yours is different. Keep on doing a good job out there. Alfonso Nov 01, Jon Morrow, thank you so much for this post! I needed to hear this stuff. I am looking forward to learning from you in the future. I have been inspired but your writing so far.
Albertus Indratno Nov 10, You are man of kind. I do blogging since 7 years ago. I pushed them to click my advertising. But, now, i understand that readers need something useful for their life. I called it human to human approach. Not human to machine, like the way i did. E Since months ago, i read your blog everyday.
Just like a breakfast at Tiffany. Nov 16, Jamie Hudson Nov 17, This is what I call a pillar article. Amazing post on blogging and actually making money doing it. This will be extremely helpful for newbies. Franklin Okeugo Nov 18, Jan Nov 21, This is a really interesting post Jon.
Every type of business has a list of things specific to that business that must happen in order for their to be income produced. Many begin blogging for fun and then realize their might be money to be made. Others use their blog as the means to an end, a hub of activity to attract customers and traffic to their main event.
Adam Nov 21, Amby Felix Nov 25, Thank you so much for this post! I am one of those people who decided to blog full time for a living and am loving every thing about it regardless of the lack of time, social life or sleep. I truly believe that we have an opportunity to do what we love for a living. I agree about foregoing ads and instead selling your own products in those ad spaces. This might however not be applicable to bloggers who are still new and running the ropes, and to blogs that are still in their growth phase.
After having some time to build a community and learn what your readers like to learn, you can then create your products and link to them from banners on your sidebar.
Nick F Dec 01, You opened my eyes with your lessons. They are pure gold! Sumit Thakur Dec 02, I like when said no SEO for one year, It is rare when someone gives statement like this. I also admit it that creating relationship is what matters the most. Mi Muba Dec 03, Your every point is the voice of my heart. The only difference is that you heard it before me and that is why you are earning k dollars and I am still a struggling blogger.
I think there are two types of people in this world. One type is of those who think they know and other type is of like you who really know and can tell others what they know. Selling services first and then creating a product is an amazing idea which I never read before. It will be just like the reproduction of whole post. And thanks a lot for sharing this post and once again thank you for helping me conceive an idea for my next blog post.
Lindsey Hayward Dec 06, At this point, I seriously feel like a deer in the headlights. But I have a question…. Reversing the sales funnel is also very smart and makes a lot of sense.
Dennis Simsek Dec 29, Plain and simply brilliant. So many bloggers including myself have made leaps toward creating more and more content in the beginning, when in fact many top bloggers spend most of their time diving through other sources to generate that traffic, that moves to leads, and eventually profits. Ankit Prakash Dec 29, Jon, as always a wonderful post. Loved your thought on blogger: Rocky Jan 01, What would you suggest to someone who has a blog that is in a very small, niche field?
How does one gain a bigger audience and what types of products do you suggest selling? Bonire Jan 02, Thanks Jon This is one of the greatest and most inspiring articles i have ever read online.
I however seem to have one challenge to over come. This is has to do with what specific niche to settle for because, i am only about starting out and blogging is going to be my major occupation and source of livelihood.
The niches i have in mind and passionate about is making money online and self improvement. Dee The Kitchen Snob Jan 05, As a food blogger, my mind goes to e-cookbooks, actual hold-in-your-hand cookbooks, books on how to start a food blog and how to do food photography. But according to this post, those I should sell later…the cheaper products. Brooke Jan 07, Still wondering how to maximize my potential….
I do get caught up with wasting time sharing to Twitter and Facebook and not seeing the traffic. I had my 1st Blogiversary in Nov and am getting a lot of positive feedback but not seeing the traffic. How do you get on some guest blog spots? We have an Farmhouse and do most of the work restoring the house and also I have a passion for cooking so I do a lot of food presentation and recipes. Love to hear what you think at BeFedAgain.
Luis Peres Jan 07, I have another about oriental movies that has reached about Wendy Jan 09, You brought up some really good points in your posting. I have not even heard of that. The Happy Creatioms Jan 11, I think I need to start making money just to have you as my mentor: Daniel Daines-Hutt Jan 11, Willson John Jan 12, Salah Farid Jan 14, Thanks for sharing all this useful and relevant information Jon.
This is some confidence needed to be successful in anything. Ali Iqbal Jan 14, This is awesome post. More energy for new bloggers and monetization methods. The ultimate way to earn from blogging is to have something your own to sell. Charlotte Jan 20, Love your writing and love this website. Anil Agarwal Feb 08, You ARE a true leader Jon. You share what you follow. Sarah Feb 10, I found your blog after hanging my head from another post on yet another site saying to forget about blogging as your source of income.
Completely ignoring that advice and seeking out some that matched my determination, I found yours and so glad I did! Nader Feb 13, These tips are worth WAY more than gold… Way too awesome man. Me Feb 17, I think you have made very important point. However, there is a need to distinct between 1 a blog which will be a business, and 2 a business which has a blog.
Your case seems to fall under 2. You do not want to blog, you make money from the blog, it is just a way of marketing. My blog is a blog for blogging. To express my thoughts, and maybe make money as a side effect.
There is a huge difference between those situations, and the differences lead the use of ads, guest posts and so on. I will be happy for your reply. It is superb post. Nice guide to make money from blog. Bloggers need both patience and strategy to be successful.
Peyton Helm Feb 26, Collins May 18, Luke May 19, Benjamin Carter-Riley May 19, This is one of the best articles I have ever read in my entire lifetime, Jon. While there have been a lot of articles talking about making money blogging, your is the BEST one I have seen so far!
This is giving me motivation and a huge push to continue working on my blog. You can really make a lot of money blogging, but you HAVE to put the work in you get what you put in.
One thing that really struck me in this post is the reverse sales funnel. To be honest, this reverse funnel sounds scary, but since you said you had great results, I should probably give it a try. My gosh, the information in this post is so good that you can charge for it.
Monica Leftwich May 19, Makes complete sense, Jon. Excellent breakdown of the real deal man. Thanks for dispelling many of the get-rich-quick crap circulating about how to use blogging as a revenue stream. Coach JL May 19, But through the course, Bari won me over and my perspective has completely changed. If you are a married couple with young children like we are, and you are wondering if you should do this, I would strongly suggest it.
I have been the money person in our relationship, and I always wanted my wife to care as much about saving money as much as I do. My instant reaction was that we should keep our money in our account instead of enrolling. I tried to convince her that I could teach her everything she needs to know about budgeting, money, investing etc. It turns out, Bari was a better teacher for her than I am. She needed a really kind, gentle approach, and a community of support to engage in money talk. Bari taught us techniques for being kind to ourselves and each other around a topic that brings up so much tension and stress.
During the course, we paid off all debt completely and are both focused on building our savings. My wife does it without me nagging her now. Her inner money manager has been awakened. Our finances are better than ever before, and we are both involved now. From grand vision to monthly themes to baby-steps: Prior to enrolling in Art of Money, I thought I had the finance thing down, at least the operational parts of it. Art of Money was a life-changing experience for which I am immensely grateful.

I found myself in an incredibly supportive, gentle community that encouraged me to explore, share from my heart and release a lot of old shame. Results like earning more, saving more and paying off debt were great.
Just as important was building my capacity to understand my needs at any given moment, and to see how often it was rest, self-care, time in nature, creative expression and connection with others, all independent of money.
I highly recommend AOM, especially to artists, sensitive and creative people and entrepreneurs because of its right-brain approach.

Because, in your heart of hearts, you dream of a better relationship with money. And the idea of masterful guidance, visionary teachers, and loving community sounds too sweet to pass up. The Art of Money is a non-refundable investment in your relationship with money. The Art of Money is a year-long experience that can be paid monthly or in full — but it is not a monthly membership program that you can cancel and opt-out of at any time.
Here are our reasons for not offering refunds for The Art of Money, or allowing members to opt-out of the monthly payments, if they choose that payment option:. This is your chance to make a clear, confident money decision. A big part of conscious money work is empowering you to engage every money decision mindfully, lovingly, truthfully, and directly.

Check out our mini-travel-money documentary that we filmed in early on an epic road trip from Seattle to Santa Cruz. Browse the archives on this site and see if my approach to money feels good to you. Does it make sense? Does it align with your way of being in the world — or do you want it to?
Do you want more of it? Do the guest teachers for the program intrigue and excite you? Am I, Bari, the right guide for you? Yet what these look like will be different for each participant. We offer a helpful framework — but the responsibility for what you get out of it belongs to you, and you alone. Some of you will choose to do every single exercise — others may pick and choose from what we offer and still benefit tremendously.
Some of you already have clarity around your numbers, but need help being more gentle and forgiving around money. You might need help recovering from debt — or you may have an overabundance of money that feels equally overwhelming.
The shifts you experience are unique to your financial history, situation, and goals. This experience will most likely challenge you. Holy moly, will stir up resistance — and that looks like falling behind in the program, getting triggered by lessons or teachers, or even wanting to throw the towel in completely. It will flow through phases of excitement and grief, clarity and difficulty.
Often the biggest breakthroughs come just after the greatest resistance. By denying you an escape route when things get tough, we hope to encourage you to work through your tough spots — whether they come in Month 1 or Month Because life happens — and it will happen during this year. Things will come up, related to this program and outside of it. Births, deaths, job shifts, moves, and life-changing parties. Because devotion is beautiful. But speaking of all that …. You get access for the lifetime of the program.
Every recording and resource we offer is yours, for the lifetime of the Art of Money. A springboard for fulfilling intimacy with your honey instead of ongoing conflict or awkward silence. Founded in soulful abundance. Fueled by your deepest values. To your wants and needs, to your pain and frustration, to your anger, numbness, overwhelm, and over-it-ness around money.
Your life dreams and goals. Your unique way of seeing and being in the world. Expect deep wisdom and practical how-tos. Reflective solitude and community connection. Pattern-untangling and self-care to-the-max. Rich community support and skilled leadership. A visionary approach to serve you for a lifetime. One founded on clarity, ease, and intimacy. Then gradually — sometimes gently, sometimes dramatically — these qualities soak into the rich terrain of the rest of your life.
You are brave to be here. Welcome to the right time, the perfect place, and the path to transformation. Maketa and Jessie Rey share their thoughts about the Art of Money work in their own words:. Terry Jordan, on the huge shifts that the Art of Money program helped her and her husband make:. The Art of Money course has been a steady and deep journey of financial transformation over three years for me.
The first year, I ended up staying in Money Healing and did months and months of somatic therapy just so I could feel my feelings sufficiently to do the body check-ins. Lots of childhood trauma finally got shifted too…. Over my second year, I was able to do the full course each month by taking baby steps. That year, I finally got a full range of data from my money practices and both my emergency fund and safety net fund back in place.
This was a great relief following financial devastation due to divorce, then redundancy, underemployment and falling off the housing ladder between It has truly been a healing journey, which will continue. There are still a couple of hurdles and challenges to overcome, but I am looking forward to exploring the next phase with curiosity and openness, and an emerging sense of optimism about what future might bring.
I broke through some barriers that had held me back for a long time. This program was a gift from the Divine at a time when I needed it the most. Money and I are on such better terms and I owe it to this program. You will not be sorry and you will be the better for having invested the time. This program is worth the investment of both your time and your dollars. I loved this program and I know you will too! Over ten years ago I went to a seminar given by Bari entitled, "Conscious Bookkeeping" I remembered connecting to the information and I filed it away.
Many years later, I ran across and on-line course entitled, "Art of Money" which was being taught by Bari. I jumped on it! I joined this community in and have learned so much about myself-mainly getting myself out of debt. I was able to pay off all credit cards I now have one card which I pay off monthly , pay off my student loan, and my house will be paid off next month!!!!!
Sometimes when I berate myself, I forget all of my accomplishments and my gratitude for these gifts. My work is not done, and as I have said to Bari many times, I will be a part of this work for as long as it exists. Thank you all for indulging me and thank you Bari for your infinite wisdom and gentleness around this work.
I joined Art of Money because I wanted to know what was behind the curtain of my money avoidance. For so many years, I looked down on money, and detested dealing with everything around it.
As the curtain lifted, with Bari's gentle, deep, sensible and sensitive guidance, I began the process of peeling off all those layers, years of experiences that have unknowingly shaped my money views, my world views, my self views It has been, and continues to be, a journey of deep healing and hope for change and growth. The reason I signed up for the AOM was that I was so in love with Bari's book and I hoped she could help me in my relationship with money in my business and my life with my, now husband and our 2 young children.
All 3 parts of AOM have so much to offer. It is so beautiful to see how much of my life is influenced by the choices I make with money and how I think and feel about it.
I discovered I love mindful budgeting, see my numbers and see how money comes in and out. What shifted in my life is my thinking and feelings about money. I would tell all my friends and all parents to sign up for AOM. It is so important to learn about money, so you can teach it to your children without fear or judgement.
With trust and LOVE. So you can live the life with your children that's important to you. My relationship with money and making money and financial decisions has shifted so much. This has been a huge catalyst for me to reconsider my work and personal life in regard to how I see money and not fear it so much anymore. I love the gentle and judgement free space that Bari and her team create for AOM.
Money is such a trigger for me and am sure many others so I love how everyone is accepted where they are at and we go at our on pace. I have learned from all aspects of the program and can see myself signing up to take it again in the future. There are so many incredible resources with incredible people involved in the FB community as well.
I had been attracted to Art of Money for a couple of years before I jumped in. I found the program gentle, profound, and healing. Bari's approach is so inclusive and she's literally seen it all, so nothing anyone asks her about is a surprise and she knows many ways to approach the solution. The community calls and expert interviews are invaluable. What I like the most about the program is the phases that Bari walks you through - from healing your money history, getting clear on your numbers, and how to figure out what you need and want for your lifestyle and how to get it.
I highly recommend this program if you are wanting more freedom and control around your money and to heal any money shame you may have. Thank you for also sharing your trainings with my wife and I. It has been years, but your Conscious Bookkeeping course really made a huge and lasting impact on our lives fiscally and otherwise.
I think what Bari does more than anything is un-shames us around money. It was the combination of rigor — and frankly love — that made this work land with me like nothing before.
