Personally my best year was 2011. In 2012 I had some pretty big hits as well, but this recent year I have changed things up quite a bit to work less and make more money with my time. At the end of the day I'm making about 1/2 the money, but I'm spending 1/6th the time.
But what about you, have your earnings increased over the last year?
And why do you think that is?
