[Sunday Digest] Ever thought of making a living doing what you love?

Published 8 months ago • 2 min read

Hi Reader,

Have you ever thought about making a living doing what you love?

Ever since I graduated college, I had a desire to be my own boss.

The thought of reporting my whereabouts to someone made me feel like I was somehow imprisoned.

My time wasn't mine to spend, and I wasn't allowed to just go get groceries in the middle of the day if I wanted to. It didn't matter that I could deliver my work by the deadline and with high quality. I still had to show up and be in an office even if I didn't have to be there to get my work done.

Over the years, I've started a children's party planning business, sold Tupperware, did network marketing for health supplements, ran an espresso bar, freelanced as a writer, and now have a training and coaching business - all while still working a 9 to 5.

Through it all, I'm still at it. You might be wondering, why are you still at it? You must have really sucked if nothing you've tried has worked and you're not yet a multi-millionaire.

And you'd be right. I'm not a multi-millionaire, yet :)

But if there's one thing I've learned throughout the time I've done this and spoken to the women who have become multi-millionaires, it's this:

It's taken them years, on average between 15 to 20 years to get to where they are.

While they were working towards their dreams of growing a successful business, they had to do something else to make money to feed themselves and put a roof over their heads.

There's no shame in admitting this and I think sometimes we get misled by the sensationalisation of social media and influencers.

It's never as easy as they make it seem and you need to be able to stick with it - whether it's a business you want to grow or any dream or goal you're after.

It can be difficult when there are many distractions that come in the from of self-doubt and your inner critic, not to mention the people around you who ask you to give it up.

But if you have a desire to go after your dream, don't stop until you make your dream a reality.

Today, I'm on the path of making my dreams come true. Many have become a reality and some, I'm still working on. I know by staying on my path, it will just be a matter of time that they are realised.

What makes me so sure? I know that no matter what, I'll make it work and I can figure it out. And even if I can't, there will be something for me to learn, or an alternative path, a better one for me to explore that I wouldn't have found if I never tried in the first place.

If you want to have the confidence to go for your dreams and goals, then join me at my upcoming workshop where I'll show you the MAP Method that's helped me build faith and belief in myself that I have what it takes to create the the life I want. Click the button below to register:

See you then!

Have a good week ahead.

Hello Reader, I made $30,000 in my side hustles as a full-time working mother. I’m not saying this to show off, but to show it’s possible for you. It took me almost a decade to figure this out. Sure, some tactical strategies and skills took time to learn. But the main reason it took so long was how fast and willing I was to change myself. Specifically, there were 5 mental leaps I had to take. If you’re a corporate employee with dreams of making multiple income streams from your side hustle,...
