¿Cuánto dinero puede ganar un influencer?

Hoy me di la tarea de investigar cuánto dinero puede ganar un influencer. Con algunos datos mencionados en el video y un poco de investigación extra, pude llegar a unas cantidades estimadas que te van a dejar pensando todo el fin de semana.

La pregunta de hoy es: si cualquier empresa en el mundo te diera la cantidad exorbitante de 5 cifras que te menciono en el video para que crearas una pieza de contenido digital (cualquiera que elijas: video, audio, escrito, visual, etc.), ¿qué crearías?

¡Espero que te guste el video!

Un abrazo,

PIIT28 results: this is what the first round of PIIT28 1.0 did for me.

PIIT28 1.0 isn’t a product / ebook / program / I made, create or wrote but it is an experiment I ran in myself, that’s why I consider it a personal project and I would like to share the results with you.

This is what the first round of PIIT28 1.0 did for me.

I finally ended the first round of PIIT28 1.0 and all the things it promised were true. I even got one or two extras. First, I’ll share my PIIT28 results and then the harsh truth, ok?

This is the picture I shared on my Instagram account when I finished the 28 days of PIIT28 1.0 (first round).

I feel so happy I joined #PIIT28 ! Even though Piit28 is one of the hardest things I have ever done, I'm glad I survived the first round! Generally, I don't feel tired everyday, like I used to, I don't feel sleepy all the time and I'm more energetic to do stuff here and there. Tomorrow starts a new semester and can't wait to use all this energy to learn more about my career! To talk about numbers, I have lost 10kg/22lb and, according to my records, the lost should notice more in my chest area where I lost 7cm. I'm very impressed of how the most basic movements accomplished this! I had to modify a lot of the moves because of my injuries but still managed to sweat a lot in every session! And also, I'm aware #28DayReset helped a lot in this process! Thank you @blogilates for creating the tools to find my better self and thank you to all the Piit princesses for your support! God be with you! ❤ #piit28 #piitprincess #piitday28 #beforeandafterpiit

A post shared by Katherine Montero (@queith) on

I’m sharing it just so you know that I’ve been at my worst and now, I’m slowly improving to my best. I only got it with work and PIIT28 has helped me a lot with it.

PIIT stands for Pilates Intense Interval Training. PIIT28 is an exercise program that lasts 28 minutes per session and 28 days per round. It has 7 exercises per day and you get to work 45 seconds and rest 15 seconds until you completed the 28 minutes. Half of the exercises are pilates or musculation and the other half is cardio to make your heart pump faster.

All the tools are included in the package: ebook, videos, gifs, forum, calendar for the round, piitstagram challenge, how to warm up, how to cool down, etc.

I started practicing PIIT28 1.0 because I was already motivated to do it. See the picture I just posted above? I’ve saw hundreds of them in my Instagram feed. And I was interested on doing it, already. I wanted to have their results, too. I thought if that program really helped a lot of girls with different body types, maybe it could do something for me, too!


One of the things I have to be super honest about is how long it took me to finish the first round. Yes, I said the first round lasts 28 days but I stopped a lot. I stopped because of my injuries, because of my university, because of my finals, because I was tired, etc. I trained one or two days in a row and rested three. And then, I would trained for days 3 and 4 and that’s how I did it.

Maybe if I were more disciplined about it, I’d get better results but what I really want to point out here it’s how PIIT28 works even though when you’re resting in between days.

I worked out in my living room, PIIT28 doesn’t need any extra equipment than a mat and pair of tennis. Sometimes I just played a little music to spice things up.

So, I already shared how I rested a lot in between days and also, told how PIIT28 works, but how did I work out every day?

The first week was ok. I did my best and try to make all the moves but, because of the weight I was (89kg), my right posterior calf got injured, according to all the Google Images I saw, it was the Achilles tendon. So, if I kept jumping all around, it could break and I wouldn’t be able to walk.

That’s why I tested all the positions my tendon felt alright and noticed that, if I kept my foot and leg in a 90º, my tendon didn’t hurt. I started using all the variation exercises PIIT28 offers and whenever it asked me to jumped, I walked.

It’d seem like a shame but I was protecting myself and, at the same time, I was exercising. So, no shame, I’m just slowly getting into it. And I was terribly happy to notice that I sweated the same amount as before, even though I was “just walking” instead of jumping.


What I want you to take from all my injury story is that even though you don’t make the hardest or fastest moves, you’d still get results.

On the third week, I started putting some music I like to warm up dancing. On the fourth week, I was so happy that came back to the normal warm up sequence.

Those are the 3 customizations I made to the PIIT28 1.0 on the first round:

  1. I didn’t work out every day, most like every other day.
  2. I didn’t jump, I walked.
  3. I warmed up by dancing on the third week.

Of all the things PIIT28 1.0 promises, which ones where true?

Here’s what PIIT28 will do for you:

  • Cut your workout time in half. TRUE, I used to travel 1h to the gym and 1h to go back to the university + the time my training lasted, which was 1.5h ~ 2h. That’s a lot of time. With PIIT28, I worked out for 1h maximum.
  • Melt all-over body fat fast. TRUE, I’ve lost a lot of centimeters all over my body.
  • Increase your resting metabolism. TRUE, the interval exercises are meant to create an oxygen deficit that’ll made you burn calories while you’re resting. I can definitely say this is true because I rested a lot and still got results beyond what I imagined.
  • Build lean muscle with no equipment. TRUE, I lost a lot of inches and I can say they were of body fat because I feel stronger, I can do a lot of more moves than before and feel a little bit faster than before. Also, the part of no equipment is true if you do not consider a mat and a pair of Nikes equipment.
  • Sculpt the strongest Pilates abs ever. TRUE, I have no visible abs yet but I can definitely say that what I can see now is my “strongest abs ever” version.
  • Improve your posture so that you’ll look taller. TRUE, my chest is lighter and my core stronger, that’s why I can lift my rib cage and have a better posture. I need to work on the moments I’m writing because I tend to curve my back but it has definitely improve.
  • Increase your confidence and happiness levels. TRUE, it’s not just about the clothes, it’s about the movements, it’s about transportating your whole self every day and not feeling tired or ashamed.
  • Find new friends and make real relationships with like-minded people. TRUEwith the PIITstagram challenge you will find a lot of people who are happy of your existence and your accomplishments. And you’ll notice that you are happy of their existence and their accomplishments, too. Not only that, but in your real life, it’ll be easier to talk to other people. For me, as an introvert, it’s very difficult to start a conversation; but with all these changes going on, people reach me all the time and start with the sentence: Wow, you’ve lost a lot of weight, right!?

Yes, all the promises of PIIT28 1.0 were true, but I also got a few extras.

  1. I’m saving a lot of money in clothes. As I was getting bigger, my wardrobe was getting smaller and I needed to buy clothes. Now, I’m starting to fit in all of my clothes again, and that makes me happy for economic reasons.
  2. My size is uniform, now, at least in Popflex. I’m size 12 in tops and shorts. I had different sizes before PIIT28, I’m uniform now and that’s easy to retain in my mind.
  3. I started to control my breathe a little bit more so I might not die from a respiratory failure after all. ❤

PIIT28 1.0 is $39USD and you can get it here. Only if you’re interested in Pilates, cardio, dancing moves, musculation and some yoga.

To understand what you’re really paying, I like to do the math of the final price between the number of sessions in the package. You’re paying $39USD for a package with 2 rounds (56 days). If you were going to a gym and pay per class, you’d be paying $0.70USD per session which doesn’t seem expensive to me.


The best thing is you get access forever to the PIIT28 1.0, so, let’s say if you want to try PIIT28 1.0 again next year, it’ll be there in your library at no extra cost. It’ll mean your price per session would drop to $0.35USD.

Now, the harsh truth I promised. PIIT28 1.0 IS HARD, INTENSE, TIRING, EXHAUSTING. It’s not for everybody. It’s only for the people who are mentally prepared to push hard. And look that I’m saying mentally prepared and not physically, because really, your mind controls your body.

The first time Cassey helped me to break a mental barrier was when I was doing the push up cobras and my triceps didn’t feel like pushing anymore. Cassey was like “keep doing it, I know it hurts, come on, you’re gonna get there” and started crying because my mind started fighting, my arms didn’t feel like going but I needed to get going, specially because I could control my breathe in this exercise, so I could get going. I ended up that serie crying, my triceps tight and my forehead sweating. I couldn’t get up for 5 minutes. But the moment I started thinking: “I did it, I push and I did it”, I noticed how my triceps didn’t hurt that much anymore.

I realize muscles hurt but pain doesn’t last that much, what really lasts is satisfaction and results. The very next day, I went to the pool and swam my first 50 meters without stopping and I did it 5 more times!

Prepare yourself mentally to join PIIT28 1.0, once the journey starts, there’s no going back. I promise.


Right now I’m on day 39 (second round!) of PIIT28 1.0. I’ll post a review when I’m done with the second round. 🙂

Here’s the plan about Solids’ Mechanics 3.


I deserve nothing. I mean it. I worked hard to understand Dynamics for 40 days and couldn’t make it and that’s ok. 40 days are not enough to understand such a complicated subject and I’m fine by studying the same subject next semester to fully execute the way it’s supposed to be.

I’m understanding how my mind works and, it seems that for these kind of subjects, I need to see them twice to fully understand what is going on. Same happened to me at Differential Equations (I got it the second time).


So, this time I’ll move faster and smarter. I didn’t approve Dynamics (Solids’ Mechanics 2) so I can’t enroll in Solids’ Mechanics 3… officially. But there is no law that forbids me to get in class and listen and learn, thank God! Because that is my plan. I’m getting into class to listen and take notes and understand what I can this semester so, by the time that I can actually enroll into Solids’ Mechanics 3 officially will be the second time I study the subject but the first time I enroll.

By the time I can officially enroll the subject I will be ready!

And, by the time I can enroll Dynamics again (next semester), my mind will not be as asleep as if I wasn’t get into this plan.

I’m just trying to improve performance by listening to the most demanding classes once before enrolling! ❤

Milestones that made me happy this October

On October I realized how easy is to be happy in the future. See, I had to take one of the saddest decisions but I had to keep up with my life and that sadness was draining me.

I figured if I only capture happy moments, even though those happy moments last 3 seconds, those would be the only ones I’ll remember in the future. Said and done, I started taking pictures about everything this month, again.

I just couldn’t let the sadness took me down, specially when the finals are coming!

Thank God, I had the help of my friends, they kept me going and I must say, I think I’m surviving. ❤

So, besides the amazing friends I have in real life, I noticed my amazing friends in digital life helped me with the return to my happiness, too! You helped me reach two milestones this month, woohoo!

Milestones that made me happy this October.

+300 readers on WordPress.

I’m shock! I could never imagine +300 people would be interested in my photos or what I say! To be honest, I’m really grateful all of you are here, this is one of the most amazing surprises October gave me! Specially because I think I can’t post like before, I only can write once a week and the fact that you have found some value in my weekly post warmths my heart. ❤ Thank you!

If you’re visiting today and want to be a part of an amazing community of +300 people, you can join here:

+40 subscribers on YouTube.

This is another surprise! I had my account for FIVE YEARS and, literally, had 3 viewers the whole time (my mom and my two best friends!). I tried to join VEDAs and VLOGmas and stuff thinking that is what I needed to grow my channel and then, when nothing happened, I thought: FINE, I’ll just upload things to help with the visuals to my blog. I stopped thinking about growth and started thinking how can I give a better message on this blog… next thing I knew I had +30 people last month!

It seems like the best things always happen when I’m not paying attention. Instead of creeping around my YouTube channel and try a lot of things to make it grow, I’m taking it easy and uploading things just because I like them and want to use them to publish a post over here. Well, it seems that’s exactly what you guys like because in less than a month you made my channel grow to +40 subscribers, WOW! ❤

You can see the numbers here: http://youtube.com/kathmontero

Thank you so much for teaching me that I have to be patient! ❤
Thank you so much for teaching me that the best things happen whenever they want to happen, not when I want them to happen! ❤
Thank you for your attention, your love and your decision to be here! ❤

Thank you for helping me get out of the sad spot I went in! 🙂

Frases de libros interesantes.

Una de las cosas que, de verdad, jamás me imaginé que me ocurriera es que mi canal de YouTube despegara. Desde que lo reabrí, pasé más de 5 años con solamente 5 personas interesadas en lo que yo tenía para compartir. Muy probablemente eran mi familia y amigas.

Así que dejé de intentarlo y solo me quedé subiendo material para apoyar algunos artículos, pero ya no le puse tanta atención. Digo, teniendo 5 años de que subís +200 videos y que no pase mucho, la verdad es como para aceptar que quizás no tenés tantas cosas buenas para compartir.

Pero, justo cuando decidí dejar de ponerle atención y solo ocupar el canal como apoyo remoto para algunos artículos, resulta que más personas se empezaron a sumar. Siento que me ha pasado como cuando ponés algo a hervir y que cuando lo estás viendo nunca sube, pero en cuanto pestañeás, ¡ya se ha rebalsado todo!

Ahora somos +30 personas en mi canal y, dada mi trayectoria, de corazón te digo que jamás me imaginé que fuéramos tantos. ❤


Muchísimas gracias por demostrarme que las mejores cosas que no están bajo tu control siempre pasan cuando no lo intentas demasiado, cuando no te urge, cuando no estás desesperada. De verdad, les agradezco por esta lección.

Para celebrar este nuevo récord personal, he querido hacer un video, siempre con la idea de crear material de apoyo para mi blog, con las 50 frases interesantes de los libros que leí el 2012. 🙂

Ojalá te guste y, de nuevo, gracias por la lección. ❤
