I never planned on becoming an entrepreneur.
I’m a Canadian gal who studied in university for almost three years before I discovered the opportunity of selling products on Amazon. My goal was to graduate from university and get a government job that paid a good salary with benefits. Little did I know that I’d trade the security and comfort of the traditional path for the possibilities of the unconventional route.
At 20 years old, I met the love of my life, Stefan (who I’m engaged to now). He encouraged me to build my own online business so that I could enjoy the flexibility and freedom he experienced as an online business owner. He taught people how to publish books on Amazon, so I decided to give it a try and took his online course. I published roughly five books. I wasn’t making a fortune, but the fact that I could make money online while I was in school, while I was working, while I was sleeping… was incredibly revolutionizing to me. Think about that, making money while you sleep! That’s when I clued into the opportunity right in front of me… the opportunity in front of you. If you’ve got a computer and access to the internet, then it will be easier for you to start your own business than previous generations. There are fewer barriers of entry thanks to the internet.
