I have made a few changes in the last month or so. I really want to start putting my long-term plans into motion.
When I first started Riri's Discoveries, I initially just wanted to post workouts and keep myself motivated. Now that I have been doing this for about a year and a half, I really want to put my larger plans in motion. After all, this is a business, and I think that there is value in my business. I hope that you can see that too.
So with that in mind, I thought I'd start offering more value to my readers and followers. Obviously, YouTube is a great way to create additional content, and I would love to offer that, but as it stands right now I do not have the kind of money it takes to launch a quality YouTube channel. If you saw the laptop I was doing all of my programming and business on you'd see that it is a 10 year old macbook that takes about 20 minutes to get started and is missing the 'N' key.
In the meantime I have launched a podcast. The Riri's Discoveries Podcast is available on most podcast Platforms. I have also created a whole page for my podcast so you can listen to it via my website. The point of the podcast is to give you 30 minutes of fun and a look into my life and the discoveries that have brought me to where I am today. I hope it will be funny, and informative, and another great way for me to connect with more of you.
Along with my podcast I have launched a Patreon page. Patreon, if you do not know, if a membership-building website. Should you wish to become a patron of Riri's Discoveries, you can donate money to the page. You can do this just once, or become a member. There are different tiers of memberships, and I have highlighted on my Patreon website what each of those tiers will provide you with as a perk. I also post additional lifestyle content there, articles, and useful links.
Last, but not least, I have become an amazon affiliate. Amazon affiliates is a great program for me to use to help direct you to the exact products that I talk about on my podcast, in the blog, in instagram and facebook posts, and on patreon. You can see my top health picks in the carousel below.
If you click on any of these images, and then proceed to buy from these links, I will be given a small commission from amazon.
Which leads me to my final message. I am taking steps to produce more revenue from Riri's Discoveries because in 5 years I would like to be running a company that changes industry standards in the health and wellness field. There is a lot that I have learned from being a personal trainer and working with entrepreneurs, and I think that what I have planned with not only benefit the general wellbeing of society, but could have beneficial effects on the environment as well.
As I refine my plans for the future, I will definitely share them with you. I want to be completely transparent about where money is spent and how I will re-invest it in the people who have supported me all this time.
So thank-you for supporting me up until now, and hopefully in the future. I am very excited about the direction that this small passion project is taking.
