It’s sink or swim out here.
You’re going to find out real quick if you are struggling for breath or if you’re floating along just fine. If the waves are pushing you under or if you’re surfin’ em.
This is your DREAM we’re talking about. YOUR PASSION.
Are you really going to give it up that easily? Are you going to let the waves crash into you and wash you ashore? Or are you going to master the ocean and accomplish your biggest goals?!! Live out your purpose and not just make things work…but thrive in the things you do?
These were the questions I had to ask myself when I was first starting my online business. The truth is, things were hard!!!
Online business was complicated for me and I had no idea how I was going to move forward and make it work…but I KNEW in my heart, I WAS going to make it work SOMEHOW.
So, like any fully committed wannabe-entrepreneur, I dove in and spent a sh*t ton of money. Tens of thousands of dollars.
And do you know what I found?
Online entrepreneurship wasn’t as complicated as I first thought. I got traction in my business. And within 6 months, I was putting in my resignation at my corporate job.
So, how did I get started in the first place, and how did I land here?
My story isn’t all that unique. You’ve heard it before, and it might even be the same story you share.
I felt unfulfilled in my corporate job.
When I was a little girl, I wanted to change the world. I was so PASSIONATE. So revved up to make a difference.
I went to engineering school so I could help other countries with their basic needs. I wanted to make the world a better place with my creativity and I wanted to be able to design life changing things for people.
And then I got into the real working world. And I was overloaded with emails and politics and wrapped up in the paperwork and the management, and I didn’t get to the MAKING A DIFFERENCE PART.
I ended up with debilitating panic attacks. Severe burn out. It took me close to $10,000 and 2 years to recover my health from the stress of my engineering job.
But I did recover, and while I was recovering from my health struggles, I threw myself into finding my passions. I connected with myself again. I asked myself what I wanted, and what my dream life looked like to me.
I ended up in health coaching, helping others with burn out and anxiety. And then I found myself way more excited to talk to people about their businesses than I did about their health.
I spoke to people all over, and found that what they REALLY wanted, was a way to make their business work- so that they could live out their passion, too.
And that’s how I ended up here.
My business was born out of the philosophy that YOU REALLY CAN have it all. I spent so much time in the #entrepreneurSTRUGGLE spinning my wheels and at times, feeling utterly hopeless that I could ever survive in the online world, but I knew that I wouldn’t ever give up on living out my dream. Once you map out your vision, it becomes unbearable to let that vision go off to the wayside to become a distant memory in Fallen Dream Land.
I don’t believe that online business needs to be complicated. I don’t believe that you have to spend a ton of money on advertising before you get your first client. I don’t think you should be in the STRUGGLE for ages, trying to make it work. I became an Online Visibility Strategist after I found that VISIBILITY and sharing my authentic message was the difference between a business that never took off vs. one that is making traction online.
I’ve helped clients globally, from all over the US and Canada, to Australia, Germany, the UK, and South Korea, to grow their online businesses, and more often than not- sign their very first client. I am absolutely in love with showing my clients and audience how they can grow their tribe, share their message, and get visible online so that they can have a successful business that absolutely lights them up, too.
Great things never came from comfort zones
