"A TRUE STORY ABOUT HOW ONE REAL PERSON, WITH REAL PROBLEMS, TOOK REAL STEPS TO CHANGE HER LIFE BY WORKING ONLINE... AND HOW YOU CAN, TOO!"
Most of our childhoods are spent excited and energetic. We race towards our BIG goals.
There is nothing we can’t do!
Yet, somewhere along the way, we stop shooting for those awesome goals. We stop believing in ourselves and our ability to ever make them happen in the first place.
We give up.
Life has a way of beating us up a little... doesn't it?
And in the process we lose ourself, fall deep into the rut of the 9-5, kids and bills,
and end up with a nagging sense that we were made for more than we've become.

The worst five years of my life and how they changed everything.
Four months. Just four short months. That's all it took for me to get my junk together and figure some things out.
The decision was made. The goal was clear. Deep breath! Here we go... going through all the steps that will get us there.
The point of working online, after all, was to have more freedom to love the life I was living... to have the money and time to finally be doing all the things that brought me joy. What's your hidden dream? How can you be living it out?
Kids, marriage, an online business, a house... I hear ya, it's a lot. And balance? Yeah, that doesn't really exist. But you can strive for "overall" balance and "good enough" juggling so you can feel content and accomplished in all your important roles as a human.
More than just a business how-to... it's a true story of changing your life through the freedom of the internet.

My life was pretty darn good.
Well, until it wasn't.
And I cursed my bad fortune for five straight years.
Just when I got the courage to stand up again, life would knock me right back down. Round and around it went like this with a near fatal embolism, a cancer diagnosis, a financial recession, and even a historic flash flood. My body felt like a punching bag and my spirit felt way, way worse.
Once my life began to ease up, I was a different person. My desires and perception had been forever changed. I wanted things to be different moving forward. I wanted to spend more time with the people I loved. I wanted enough money to buy necessities and fun experiences to bring more joy into my life. I wanted freedom to be my own boss and designer of my days. I wanted change, BIG change, that would allow me to be the person that I wanted to be... launching my online pursuits, traveling, and writing this very book.
I learned one very important important lesson through it all... Just as quickly as your life can crumble, it can also lift you to unimaginable and wonderful new heights. You just have to believe that no matter how broke or defeated you feel right now, you can be in a very different place financially, spiritually and mentally in less than one year.
I've been an entrepreneur for a decade now. Working online has changed my life. But I'm not the only one. I've met all kinds of different people that have shared their battle stories and victories with me. I'm repeatedly amazed at the human spirit and the ability to find your best self while falling flat on your face. With nothing to lose, we strive for things we would have never attempted without those butt kicking experiences spurring us on. It's because of the pain that we step back, take a deep breath, and re-evaluate who we are and what we are doing with our lives.
My hopes is that this one book can change your life- enabling you with enough power, direction, and clarity to take back your life and re-navigate it to where you want it to be. This book shows you the steps you'll take to get to one very important truth... you really can build an online business, that gives you the freedom and money needed, to create a life you absolutely love. That's the truth. That's the takeaway.
