I realised I was a prisoner to a job I wasn’t even passionate about....


My 2hr train journey to work each day left me feeling uninspired and unmotivated.

Before I had even stepped foot into the office I wanted to turn back around and go home.

But I couldn't, because I had rent and bills to pay...

And I needed the money so I could go back to the UK to see my family again and pursue my dream of going to Italy.

I was left feeling mentally exhausted, trapped and desperate...

With only my double shot coffee each morning to help put a pep in my step for the next 8 hrs (or at least till the 3 o'clock slump).

But one day on that dreaded train journey to work, I noticed this old man with his suit and his briefcase and I thought...

how long has he been doing this same journey for?

And...

How much longer of his life has he got left doing it?

In that moment, I asked myself 2 questions that changed my life...

I asked myself:

Do I want to be that like that man?

And...

What am I doing with my life?

I knew in my heart that corporate life wasn't for me...

And I knew that life had a lot more to offer me and that I was capable of so much more...

I knew, because I had proved it to myself in the past...

At the age of 21 I had experienced a life of freedom,

I moved to Australia from the UK: travelling and doing what I wanted, when I wanted.

And when I was 24 I turned my passion (Makeup Artistry) into...

A lucrative business, so I knew I had the Entrepreneurial spirit inside of me.

Being creative, having a purpose, travelling, adventure and spontaneity is what makes me truly happy.

But somewhere along my journey I had lost confidence in myself, I lost my passion and I lost my purpose,

I gave up on my true happiness...

And my job was suffocating my passion, my purpose and all 3 levels of my freedom: Time, Location and financial.

Ironically though, I needed that uninspiring job and that dreaded 2 hour journey to work,

I needed it to wake me up from committing myself to an unfulfilled life for the next 35 years...

Where I would only be worth the amount someone else thought I was worth...

Where my freedom to travel whenever I wanted and for as long as I wanted, had restrictions on it,

Where my only creative outlet was colour coding my excel spreadsheets.

The day I saw that man on the train, I well and truly woke up.

And I decided to never work for someone else again...

Settling for a lifestyle that was rotting me from the inside out was no longer an option for me.

So, I decided to move to another state and rebuild my makeup business, and put my full focus in to it,

But then...

The year 2020 happened ...

And my business as a Makeup Artist had to shut down before it even got restarted,

I was devastated because the one thing I thought was going to save me from working for someone else again,

Overnight, became like a bucket with holes all over it.... Useless.

But at this point I had to decide whether I was to sink or swim...

I had to find something else that would give me financial security with or without a pandemic.

I knew this had be something that was fully online, where I would be able to work from anywhere...

I knew I did not have the time or the financial resources to create a product or a course myself (I was 31 years old and had no income coming in),

I knew that the solution would have to include some form of start now - earn tomorrow strategy

But provide a residual income, that would allow me to have all 3 levels of my freedom: Time, Location and financial.

I also knew that I needed to provide value in an ethical way to others,

So that I would feel aligned with what I was doing and make a positive impact...

In a nutshell, I was looking for something flexible, creative, durable and that allowed me to help myself and others to transform their lives.

And that's exactly what I found...

I found a way where people like myself never have to go back to working for someone else and give up all the things that make us truly happy...

I also found that:

We can have multiple streams of income that exponentially grow so eventually we can do less and accomplish more,

And we can be the ones who decide how much flexibility, freedom and income we want and deserve,

Through providing huge value to people who...

Want more from their life and are looking for a realistic solution that will help them escape their current uninspiring reality

By utilising the most rewarding industries of today...

Digital businesses. These have evolved and they have created a new breed of CEO's...

In today's world, there are digital businesses that exist which would have seemed impossible a few short years ago.

And if you have been looking for a realistic solution like I was...

You would have probably watched a few of these things before: https://thealkymicollective.me/masterclass

This is the video that paved a whole new way of life for me...

The person in this video is called Andrew, who is now one of my mentors.

His outlook on life and business is so refreshing...

He has taken 3 existing business models that work individually, merged them together and created something quite special and unique...

I am so grateful I stumbled across him whilst searching for a mediation video on Youtube - Namaste

Starting a new business is always going to be scary and uncomfortable,

Entrepreneurship is not the easy road by any means, but if you are looking for a meaningful way to exit an uninspiring job, create more financial security and get more out of your life....

I truly believe that this Free training video will help you, and at the very least you will learn something from it or spark a fire inside of you, to become the person you wish to be.

If you have read this far, I would like to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS on being open to change and reaching for your goals, whatever they maybe.

I am already so proud of you.
