If you feel like you don’t know enough to start making money online, this post is for you.
A few years ago when I left the corporate world and spent the next several months traveling, I had this idea to start working online. But I had two big problems: I had no idea where to start nor did I know how I would find clients online.
I was so new to the #wfa (work from anywhere) lifestyle and I didn’t understand how it all worked. But after traveling around the world across three continents and seven countries, I met people everywhere who had “figured it out.”
What I found most interesting was that not everyone had a technical gig. Quite often people think, in order to work online, you have to do something technical like graphic design or learn how to code. That’s not true. You can do almost anything online. Think about it like this: you sit a computer working for 8+ hours a day, which is pretty standard across most industries. Now imagine if that same computer was at a coworking space in Bali. See where I’m going with this? 😉
When I came back to the States, I told a few people about what I wanted to do: work online. Thinking about it now, it was so vague. But I had this idea that I would transfer all my skills, essentially everything I did at my previous jobs, into something online. I landed a few remote freelance opportunities, which were amazing. But I knew that if I really wanted this to take off, I needed to cast a wider net.
In order to step my game up, I realized something huge was missing.
I needed to create a website. But not just any website. I needed to create a website that showed everyone my skills and showcased everything in a professional way. And more importantly, I needed to create a system. Which meant setting up an email marketing account and creating an online sales funnel to build an email list.
I NEEDED ALL THE THINGS! Lol But I still didn’t know ‘how’ to do these things.
I took an amazing online course, if you know me and have read my previous posts you know I’m referring to B-school. B-school was so so so good. I learned so much about the online world. (Guys, it’s a lot!)
After taking b-school and working with a coach throughout the program (Hey Liz!), I launched my website. I’m so proud of my website. It’s gone through a lot of changes over the past several months. This journey is all about continuously growing and learning. What’s even more amazing is this same website has opened the door for me to work with even more people than I was working with before. Having a website made potential clients take me and what I was offering seriously.
If you’re thinking, “but I don’t know how to create a website.”
Don’t worry, I would never tell you all of this and leave out the most important part! I created a freebie with the Exact Elements Your Website Needs to help you get started creating your own website. If you’re like most people and would rather not deal with the technical side of the WordPress setup, I have a few spaces open for my Done-for-You WordPress Installation package.

I share all of this with you guys to show you what’s possible in the online world. Sharing is caring and I love sharing everything I know with you guys in hopes of inspiring you to go after your wildest dreams.
Until next time loves!
