If you’re like me, you grew up thinking that being responsible meant getting a “typical job”.
You also may have grown up thinking that freedom meant job security, health insurance and a 401K.
I’m here to firmly disagree.
I’ve found true freedom in building my own business. (Don’t worry, I still have health insurance!)
Since becoming my own boss, I’ve opened myself to the idea that the universe is full of more possibilities (job opportunities, creative endeavors, and MONEY) than I can imagine.
I want that freedom for you.
Freedom from your lackluster 9 to 5.
Freedom from boredom.
Freedom from fear.
People complain a lot about the Internet, how it’s full of negativity, fake news and violence.
I see something different.
I see unlimited potential for work, connection, creativity and community than HAS EVER EXISTED IN HUMAN HISTORY.
It has never been easier to start a business. It’s never been simpler to build a lucrative career from the ground up.
This opportunity is here for you!
I don’t have a business degree. I’m not a techie type of person who can write code and fix computers.
Yet, I run a successful business using my computer and a WiFi connection.
I enjoy learning new things and am not afraid of admitting when I don’t know something.
In a nutshell, I’m a freelance entrepreneur. A business owner. An absolute boss. Plus, I can pretty much work from anywhere there's WiFi.
(and coffee…I really love my coffee.)
As a voice over artist, I lend my voice to audio books, commercials, explainer videos, voicemails, character work, and whatever else comes my way. There is so much voice over work available in this day and age — everyone’s listening to something in their headphones, have you noticed?!?
I don't have a degree in voice over and when I started I didn’t have any equipment. Now, I’ve got over four years experience and have worked with a lot of big name clients. I’ve invested in myself along the way and have a fully professional studio when I’m home in Dallas, PLUS I have a travel studio so I can work from wherever.
As a writer, I contribute to blogs writing about topics I love including BEING A BOSS, theater education, and interesting trends in the voice over industry. PLUS, I write for clients around the world creating website copy, ad copy, emails, newsletters, and MORE.
This summer I negotiated new contracts while listening to the waves and watching the surf roar from a massive porch. I recorded an audio book and several online gaming characters in the Rocky Mountains and took long hikes each afternoon.
As a yoga instructor, I work with clients all over the world via Skype facilitating private and group classes in yoga and meditation.
To say I'm blessed is definitely an understatement.
But my life wasn't always that way...
Before I began working freelance, I worked as a barista, a tutor, a kindergarten assistant, and a summer camp counselor - to name a few.
There were great things about all those jobs — I love coffee, teaching, kids, and of course SUMMER — but they were piecemeal, they hardly paid the bills and needless to say I didn’t have much savings to speak of.
Plus, I was often surrounded by people who didn’t love their lives. They were like me, just scraping by. Creatively blocked. Stifled. They were miserable and constantly complaining about their jobs…or, even more often…OUR BOSSES. The negativity was not good for me or my mindset. I HAD to get out.
They say that people don’t quit jobs, they quit bosses.
So I did. I quit. I shifted my mindset and became the boss I wanted instead of feeling stuck with the one I had. There have been bumps along the way, don’t get me wrong. It’s taken a while to build the life of my dreams and I’d say I’m far from finished.
But now, I’m my own boss and I have clients.
I work WITH clients, instead of FOR someone else.
It took some time — I didn’t quit all my jobs at once and pray for rain.
First, I shifted my MINDSET and started acting like a boss. I realized that I was the REAL boss of my life, not someone else.
Then, little by little, I started shedding what I no longer needed (negativity and complaining co-workers being number one!) and began to create a client base of high-paying professionals who value my work.
And that’s what this course is about — how to shift your mindset to know the truth, that You’re the Best Boss.
Once you shift your mindset, you can move mountains.
Your passion may be writing, voice over or yoga (like mine!) or you may be obsessed with something completely different.
No matter what, being the best boss for yourself will help you uncover the life you were MEANT TO LIVE, instead of trying to be satisfied by the one you’re stuck with.
I want you to build a business you are proud of, that brings your joy and allows you to serve our world effectively.
I’m a multi-disciplinary entrepreneur who loves their work and students. My greatest joy is seeing students succeed. Whether that’s a four year old who shares their ideas even when they’re scared, an 8th grader who learns leadership by serving as an amazing stage manager, a fellow yoga practitioner who finally learns to let go and treat themselves with compassion, or a voice over student who books their first gig (or first $1,000 gig)!
This course is free. 100% free. Because this is the advice I give myself and my friends daily — and I want you to know it too.
Let me demystify a bit here while I’ve got you.
This course is not a bag of magic beans.
I don’t promise you’ll be making six figures in six months or grow your Instagram following by 10 K by the time you finish reading this sentence.
I do promise you can change your thinking, get out of that rut you’re in and build a magical life you can be PROUD OF.
What I deliver is real, human-to-human, freelancer-to-freelancer advice about getting your mindset to the most boss place it can be.
