Revealing my first 6 months in business…

1-year ago I took a leap of faith and quit my full-time job to start my online business, built around my skills and passions.

I wanted to build my days around work that fulfils me but also gives me time freedom and financial independence from an employer.

I stopped freelancing 6 months ago and went all in on my own business, and today, I’m proud to share that so far I’ve built two streams of income:

  1. Digital courses and products
  2. Affiliate marketing
  3. ….in the making! :)

6 months into my journey of digital entrepreneurship…

After doing Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy in 2022 whilst I was in my full-time job, I was convinced that I had the power to create my own online business. This is where the seed was planted.

Excited to grow my knowledge even further, I did more courses, signed-up to many communities, and worked 1:1 with a coach.

And then I realised that you cannot learn how to do something just by attending masterclasses and workshops, and being coached.
