I was an exhausted mom with a one-year-old who wouldn’t sleep and a husband working a job he hated.
His hours were awful, and when he’d finally make it home (way past my bedtime) he’d complain about work for 20 minutes before finally crashing in bed.
His job made us both miserable.
I remember spending hours with my notebook and pen – brainstorming ideas that could change our situation. Every now and then I’d come up with some “big” idea that seemed doable. But every one of those ideas fizzled out – leading me nowhere. I was frustrated, discouraged, and stressed to the max.
I thought my problems were time and money. I didn’t have much of either. But my real problem was actually very simple:
I didn’t have the support I needed.
This isn’t a dig at my husband. He’s amazing. But I still remember the day he came home from work and I eagerly told him about my new plan:
“I’m going to make enough money blogging so you can quit your job,” I said, proudly. I shoved my notebook in his face and walked him through my meticulous planning.
“Sure you are, Honey,” he said with a smile and a subtle tone that told me he didn’t believe me.
I get it. For starters, I didn’t know anything about blogging or making money online.
Second, I had a history of failed ideas.
In the few years we’d been together I think I had at least 7 business ideas that I was wildly passionate about. None of them had gone anywhere. Why should he believe me now?
But this time was different. I got help.
I worked with mentors and coaches who had gone on the journey before me. They showed me the ropes, called me out on my excuses, and helped me get the right mindset.
Don’t get me wrong. I put in the work. Lots of it. But with the right support, magic happens.
Within 9 months of declaring my goal to my husband, he quit his job.
We worked together on my website and grew it to over 20 million viewers – making 6 figure a year. It put food on the table. Provided family vacations. Melted away our financial stress. It even moved our family to New Zealand where we lived in paradise for a year and a half.
In that 4-year period I…
- Wrote and self-published 6 books (two that become #1 best-sellers)
- Created multiple websites
- Built and launched another business
- Spoke for online summits and live workshops
- Created intense training programs
- Wrote 700+ articles
- Met hundreds of incredible people
All of it while:
- Working less than 20 hours a week
- Giving birth to my second child
- Raising two young kids
- Moving 4 times
- Living a balanced life of work, fun, and family
With the right support, you can do anything.
That’s why I’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars on training and coaching because I know it’s what makes the difference between success and failure.
At the end of 2016, we sold that first business — providing us with even more opportunity as we moved back to the states and got settled in Austin, Texas. Now I get to turn my attention to my real passion:
Helping other people grow a business that changes their lives.
One idea, if you know how to get it done, can take you from nothing to everything. It happened to me, and I want to help make it happen for you.
