I remember it like it was yesterday.
I was working at my friend’s house on my laptop, while she watched over our kids. Marta and I had met at a birthing class and we gave birth 2 days apart! Our kids were about 8 months at the time. I had started my blog and I was ready to build my dream business.
And it happened. I checked my Google analytics at one point while working that day, and I saw it: 6,000 hits.
Holy shit, holy shit! My heart was pounding! What the frick do I do? I have 6,000 people on my website right now. OMG what do I do?
If you want to know what the heck I was doing to get this traffic you can go here.
In the months that followed I had an influx of readers and fans who began following me online and asking me about working from home and motherhood, lifestyle and even weight loss. I was a newbie in the online blogging world and didn’t even have any products or services in the beginning!
I was freelancing and trying hard to figure out my brand and what I stood for…and how to monetize it! Don’t even ask me about an email optin…I was a clueless! It took me several months to learn the ropes of how to capture leads and make sales.
Today as I write to you, I know my purpose in life and I’ve brought my business up to $10,000 per month.
I tell you this story because exposure can sometimes happen just like that! A simple flip of a few switches on the internet world and you can explode, build an audience and truly make a living. Not just make money…but create a lifestyle business, with total creative freedom!
Don’t stop creating, shifting and learning!
