To celebrate this year’s enrollment for my Launch Your Business 8-Week Boot Camp, I’m publishing a new 5-part blog series called, “My Journey to Freedom: From $0 to 6-Figures…On My Own Terms.” During this series, I’ll be posting one installment every day to share my experiences and lessons from launching 2 successful businesses. My intention is to show you that getting paid to do what you love, quitting your job and living life on your own terms is possible and that you can do it much faster than you think! Feel free to post a comment to ask me any questions you may have.
I often tell people that I’m an “accidental” entrepreneur.
Meaning, I never set out to be a business owner. In fact, when I was a little girl up until college, all I ever wanted to be was a teacher.
I suppose that’s still what I ended up being though, since now I teach in my business through my courses, my events and my coaching. It’s all basically teaching people what I know and helping them reach their goals!
But back then, I didn’t know that I could turn “teaching” and “helping people” into a business that would eventually allow me to leave my job.
So, how did this all begin?
I want to take you back to 2007, where it all really started…
At the time, I was working at a nonprofit organization in Washington, DC. My official title was “Director of Development and Special Programs.” I loved my job. I enjoyed my work. I had a great salary and benefits.
But I was also very ambitious. I wanted to take my career to the next level. I wanted to build my reputation in my industry, share my expertise and become a thought leader among my peers. I wanted to attract more leadership opportunities, more recognition and more raises at my job.
I began noticing that many leaders were starting to post articles online to promote their work in the form of a personal website called a “blog.” I thought to myself, “I can do that, too!” and I decided to start my own.
Less than a year later, I had my first paying client…and all of a sudden, I was a business owner! Without even really trying, I had accidentally become an entrepreneur.
In my next post, I’ll be breaking down the whole story of how I went from an “ugly little blog” to my first paid gig.
I can’t wait for you to see how simple the process was and get inspiration for your own journey.
❤️ Love, Rosetta
