I didn’t know what to do but I knew that I wanted to help people, make a difference, and live life on my terms.
At first, the dream of being my own boss started to become my worst nightmare. Money was hard to come by.
But I was committed to making it work. When I got hungry and couldn’t afford groceries I traded textbooks on amazon.com for food. When it looked like I wouldn’t be able to pay my rent I sold my beloved living/dining room sets. I worked like crazy to crawl out of my situation even when everything seemed to be against me.
I was scared and nervous but I did it anyways. There was no turning back to my old life.
If I was going to struggle, I would rather struggle at being successful than at staying unhappy forevermore.
At least by building my business, I had a chance of coming out of the other side and living my dreams.
Thankfully that chance came sooner than I had ever imagined.
I’ll never forget the day when I made my very first online sale ever; Someone in Peru, purchased my e-course…It was $97. I’ll never forget the feeling of seeing that Paypal notification on my phone.
I was ELATED!!
I didn’t know a single person in Peru and I realized that if I could make sales in another country, where I didn’t even know anyone, I could make sales all around the world!
In that moment I realized the true power of building an international brand online.
I knew that if I could make one sale….I could make endless more. And I have….
Thanks to my perseverance and commitment to excellence, I have been able to:
- Be awarded Digital Products Leader by Women in E-Commerce in 2014
- Make 6 figures a year from my laptop
- Replaced all of my furniture that I sold
- Live overseas (in fact I doubled my sales while living in the Dominican Republic)
- Have the freedom to control my time and be my own boss
- Travel the world with my husband and puppy (who thinks he is a person and hosts webinars on my lap)
- Own and drive my dream car
- Wear dresses that cost more than my rent used to previously
- Get flown out to speak around the world
- Make sales in my sleep
- Be there for my family and enjoy celebrations (such as my little sister’s high school graduation that was held on aTuesday)
In the last 24 months my husband and I have been able to travel and live all around the world while generating a six figure income online from our digital courses.
What I didn’t realize when I first got started selling digital courses was all the hidden benefits!
It’s been incredible to live in the Dominican Republic and get payment notifications while spending the whole day sightseeing and enjoying some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We’ve traveled al across the United States making life long memoriesI’ve got customers now in 20+ countries around the world who buy my courses.
And the best part?
I get to make money in my sleep!
When you make money in your sleep; sleeping in is good for business!
The word started getting around the online community about my success and in 2014 I was humbled and honored to receive the Digital Products Leader Award from the Women In E-Commerce organization. Requests had already begun flooding in for me to teach my fellow lady bosses how to create and sell their own digital courses.
I discovered a whole world of lady boss experts, speakers, influencers, and thought leaders with fantastic skills, knowledge, and expertise but who didn’t have a clue how to use the internet to get their message in front of more people and make money.
And so the Lady Boss Academy was born. My mission is to teach my fellow lady bosses exactly how to craft their message, create their own digital courses, and sell them online- even if they are brand new. Whatever your niche. Whatever your expertise. There are people all around the world who want to learn what you know. Let me show you how to turn you knowledge into profits.
Here's to making money in your sleep lady boss!
