Five years ago, I was feeling lost and I found this roadmap.
You see, I had just returned from Australia, where I was doing a press tour and some spontaneous modelling. I stood at a crossroads. The first No Photoshop fashion magazine I helped launch, Verily, was skyrocketing around the world, and I secured 180 media features in eight months for the magazine.
But something in the pit of my stomach new my time was up. As much as I loved the mission, we were volunteers working around the clock… which doesn’t food on the table, you know what I’m sayin’?
Everyone was telling me to get a real job… with BENEFITS! The regular ol’ 9 - 5 with a steady paycheck.
So while I munched on my lunch of canned beans, I sent hundreds of resumes into the world. All the top job sites knew more about my life than my own family.
And the offers started rolling in… in a leap of faith, I accepted a position on Wall Street working as a ad sales manager for a media company.
With fresh suit, heels, and bottomless anticipation, I found myself in a sea of cubicles. There I was, with hopeful young professionals surrounding me, ready to make it big.
But then the weirdness began. The manager was out of the office. The interim manager was flustered and came in late. One hour later, all of us Shiny Hopefuls were ushered into an office and told the boss quit that morning without warning.
There went my new job training…
At lunch, we Shiny Hopefuls sat around the table and realized no one had been at the position for longer than two weeks. And no one had been paid yet. All day, I sat in front of my computer screen reflecting on my future.
I walked out. (My dad advised me to distance myself from the likelihood of a Money Laundering Company.)
It was time for something better. A brighter future. On my own terms.
But remember how I was living on savings for 5 months? Well, I had the Power Suit and Power Heels, but no $$ and no time to get an MBA.
A few days later, I was introduced to Marie Forleo’s training videos and she said one phrase that changed my life:
Everything is figureoutable.
In the first episode of Marie Forleo’s pre-B-school power-packed free training, she gives you the PILLARS to growing a profitable business online (key word is PROFITABLE. Remember, revenue feeds the ego, profit feeds the FAMILY.)
Here’s what you will learn:
How to be successful, even if you are multi-passionate
Strategies to get the cash rolling in right from day one (without feeling like a sleazy used car salesman, spamming your friends, or asking mom and dad.)
The highest impact actions to take *right now* to rocket yourself to stardom online, and step beyond the noise into a category of ONE, using your own unique voice…
Marie also gives a wake-up call about what’s happening in the online world today, which blew my mind (see it around 17 minute mark).
Why creative people have the EDGE in business in 2019 (yes, really!) and how to maximize your unfair advantage from the comfort of your couch.
When I was getting started, this really lit a fire under me.
Final note, if you hate your website and want to level up your personal brand - maybe even aspire to be like those mega-influencer role models you secretly envy - this training will help you get there.
This video could be your roadmap to your dreams.
Wherever you are in your business or life, remember, you got this. The future is brighter than you could ever imagine.
