Hi and thank you for being here!
I just want to share with you a bit of my story and how I end up with a business around helping online entrepreneurs on how to use social media!
Learning and sharing was always a part of my life and of who I am. When I was little I used to have one of those diaries where you write what you’ve did that day, people you’ve met, how you felt, etc. I do believe that’s where I started my writing journey!
Growing up and with a degree in Sociology and Marketing & Communications, I’ve had no idea what I wanted to do. I knew it should have something to do with communicating with people but couldn’t quite see clearly my path.
I also wasn’t very aware of who I was and my true self at that time. So I ended up doing what other people would tell me to do and what I thought should be the “normal” thing to do: go find a job.
The thing is, I am totally unemployable. My life in the corporate world was a string of jobs and companies, never being able to stay at none for too long.
In those almost 9 years I ended up gaining a lot of work experience, especially in online marketing, social media marketing, blogging and WordPress, which was basically preparing me to what I would do in my future (although at that time I wasn’t aware of any of that).
I used to think that I have some kind of problem, but I never related to the corporate world, to the 9-5 thing and having to fit my (very) creative nature into someone else’s rules. My soul was screaming to be listened to!
In my last 9-5 job, I was so miserable and unhappy and the only thing that kept me sane was blogging and Pinterest. I used to have a blog about home decor, food and recipes, fitness and travel and I absolutely loved it!
I felt I was being myself when I was writing a new blog post and then post it into Pinterest and see it driving readers to visit my blog and leaving great comments. I felt I was inspiring other people and that felt right!
It wasn’t until my daughter was born that I’ve had a major spiritual awakening. My world as I I knew it started crumbling down and I’ve left many things and people that were not aligned anymore with my true self that was (finally) coming out to the surface.
I’ve left my last job and started working for myself as a freelancer helping businesses with social media marketing and blogging.
The thing is, and because I was still operating from my old templates, I ended up not working for one boss, but for many bosses, this time called “clients”.
Although I was helping businesses with their online marketing presence and was getting great results for them, it still didn’t feel quite right. I was feeling so much resistance and everything felt like a hassle and a struggle. I wasn’t enjoying it.
That’s when I realised that I was still dealing with the corporate world. Although I was working for myself now, I was still involved in all the corporate structures and business meetings, etc, that I never really related to.
I felt like I was going in the right direction but I wasn’t quite there yet. And it’s funny how the Universe keeps showing you that you’re not there yet through what you feel.
At the same time, I’ve started to have online entrepreneurs and bloggers coming to me to help them with social media. And here there was no resistance. Things were effortless and easy. And I felt really good helping other people who are as passionate about having an online business as I am!
That’s when I realised that I should leave the “corporate” world once and for all and all my old templates and beliefs of how you should operate in the business world and how you make money. Just a bunch of bulls*** that was never who I truly am.
I rather wear my pajamas and blog from my sofa then wearing a suit and sit on a business meeting! lol
And that is my purpose, to help other bloggers and online entrepreneurs. People like me, that love building and developing their blogs and online businesses.
So I’m basically now in this website combining my true two passions: Blogging and Social Media, and I feel like the puzzle pieces all coming together.
I want to help PEOPLE that are bloggers and online entrepreneurs on their journey of creating a successful blog that achieve their goals.
I’ve met many many bloggers along this journey with amazing life stories and dreams for the future.
Knowing each and every one of their stories is so inspiring to me, and it motivates me to work hard for you!
So I am providing all the knowledge and information I have from nearly 15 years of Social Media Marketing, Blogging, general Online Marketing and using WordPress.
That’s how I ended up here and now I feel aligned with my true self and my purpose.
I want to share with you all the yummy stuff I know so you can use Social Media to drive your blog and online business forward and make the rest of your life the best of your life!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
