My superpower is monetising your skills, knowledge and expertise into multiple passive income streams for sustainable recurring & automated income, for life. Let me help you make the internet YOUR bitch so you can sell your knowledge, not your time.
My story: From homeless to 6-figure ‘freedompreneur’
How I made the internet my bitch (even though I was a technophobe)
I knew I wasn’t cut out for the normal 9-5 life. No one could buy my life with a wage. I didn’t know about entrepreneurial things back then (there was no internet). I simply became a free-spirit. Roaming here and there, living wild: caravans, tipis, cabins, converted buses (sometimes actually homeless). I went beyond the usual ‘alternative lifestyle’ and into the crazy territory of ‘off grid living’
Society forced me to choose; FREEDOM or MONEY. Guess which one won?
I loved living off-grid! I had amazing adventures; Portugal, France, Spain and all over England. I felt very blessed to have discovered the key to living free.
The problem is that modern life requires money. Even us wild gypsy rebel freaks need cash now and then. Often I’d be able to make enough money selling my crafts (jewellery and handmade bags) or from my skincare workshops. Or I’d do organic gardening.
But sometimes I relied on state handouts or have to get a temping job (yuk!). I did everything from telesales to working for 2 years in a military science lab (I felt like a secret agent!).
As I entered my thirties, I started to enjoy the income that came with having a stable job but I still hated losing my freedom.
I felt that life was a trap. Choose freedom and be broke. Choose money and lose your freedom. I knew there had to be another way…
Your only job in life, is to you be. 100% YOU
The choice was false. I didn’t have to give up money or freedom in order to pursue my dream life. I could take a different path. The path of the entrepreneur. I could monetise my passions!
I’d trained in Aromatherapy at age 18 and since then had been formulating organic skincare for my own use. While in Spain – using an ancient laptop plugged into a solar panel in the back of my bus-home – I started writing about skincare for magazines; starting with the alternative press: Connect, The Mother, Green Parent and Funky Raw.
A friend, impressed with my knowledge, suggested I write a book. At this point I was 30 and had been crafting skincare for 15 years but the idea both excited and terrified me! Who am I to write a book?
But the idea wouldn’t go away. I felt that this was my way out of this poverty life I’d built for myself. I knew I wanted to have an impact on the world. I contacted a publisher and write my synopsis. This hippy girl scored a book deal!
In 2008 my book: The Holistic Beauty book was published. It’s still for sale by the way *hint hint*
I built an online academy and things took off
I quickly realised that being published did not mean automatic riches. I decided to capitalise on the book by creating an online course in natural skincare formulation. At the time of launch I had no website, no list and social media didn’t even exist back then. Ok, we had MySpace but you know…MySpace
By now I was 35 years old and studying for the final year of my degree in Applied Arts (specialising in metalwork). Don’t ask!
I would go to college all day then build my business at night. I stayed up long into the night learning how to put together my first website, how to create PDFs and a login area on my site for students.
I pre-sold my course to 8 book fans (I emailed them and they bought!). Those 8 sales gave me the courage and confidence to keep going. I’d NEVER made so much money at once. I started to think I was onto something…
My $50 start up cash become a multi-income ‘holistic empire’
Now I’d found a way to monetise my passion, I became a MACHINE. I built more and more courses – I had a huge desire to serve. I loved seeing my students’ success and wanted to keep helping them. After 2 years (and a name change) I had 7 online courses, VIP days, professional formulation services, paid magazine articles and commissions to write & deliver courses for other companies.
I turned that $50 start up money into a thriving business with multiple income streams. Word got out and soon I was being contacted by people from all over the world who wanted to train with me. I would stare at my screen open-mouthed as another booking would come in from a skincare entrepreneur willing to fly in from NYC or Australia – to train with me here in Cornwall, UK. Without any advertising
Proof that if you build something AMAZING, they will come
Living my dream life
After I sold my first business in 2014 I met my soulmate & went to paradise. Because of my amazing backstory of success, my new business shot to 5-figures a month instantly. My new venture was built on ecourses too – but this time my courses were helping female solopreneurs build freedom businesses just like I had done.
I love being able to have FREEDOM and MONEY. I love leading a global tribe of kickass women and teaching them how to turn their passions into profit, and live their dream life.
I feel f*cking blessed everyday that I live the life I want, with my soulmate and do only the work I love. I make epic income while having a impact. And I get to live abroad 3 months a year.
I’ve launched premium-level programs from a beachfront villa in Thailand. I’ve published articles in magazines while travelling across Europe in a customised eco-campervan, I’ve written a book manuscript from a quaint riverside cabin in England, I’ve taught workshops in a millhouse in France and this year I’ll be running intensives in Paris and retreats in the Greek Islands (and beyond).
I no longer rough it in caravans or tipis. I live in luxury homes & beach villas all around the world. I’m so grateful that I took the risk to monetise my passions. Those initial long nights were 100% worth it!
I make more money in one month of part-time work than I used to make in TWO YEARS of 9-5 working. Not to mention all of the passive income I make while sleeping, relaxing or socialising. Imagine that – two years of salary in one month
Never be a slave to your business. You deserve to live a life you love while doing what you love! And I can show you how.
