Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been crazy about animals. I would always say: “I want to get really, really rich, so that I can help ALL the animals in the world.” I would imagine having a huge backyard with a lot of rescued animals, and me going to different places in the world to preserve wildlife.
That dream hasn't changed.
As I was getting older, that dream faded away a little bit. I got told it wasn’t realistic, and that I should focus on school if I wanted to get rich. So I did.
That dream never really left though, and I always felt so lost in school. I wasn’t happy there, because of multiple reasons.
So when I graduated from high school, I knew I had to take a gap year to give myself some time to think and grow. I worked at the supermarket for a few months and then I left to Australia. At that time I was 18 years old and I didn’t even know where Sydney or Melbourne was on the map, but I just really needed to get away.
The first week, it was quite frightening. I realized that I hardly knew anything about Australia and everyone seemed so much older and wiser than me.
That feeling didn't last long.
I fell in love with travelling, Australia, and meeting new people every day. It was definitely the best decision I have ever made. I would say it’s been the beginning of my personal growth.After almost 8 months of travelling, I went back home and became a certified make up artist. I wanted to build a business, and next to that I was working in hospitality. But I still wasn’t happy. I was longing for more, I wanted to explore and make a difference in the world. So after a few years of being home, I left to travel again. This time I was away for 13 months.
Soon after I returned home, I realized that I couldn’t maintain the way I had been living (working for a few years – travelling – working – travelling). So I had to make a decision. Either: settle down, or: step out of my comfort zone.
I chose the second option
I knew I had to start making an income online if I wanted to keep exploring and physically help charities. I started to see more and more people around me who were working online. Call it the law of attraction.
There was no other option. I had to try this. So I reached out to a girl that was already working online. She was very happy to help me out and connected me with a network of people who already had their own online business or were busy creating one.
I started learning so much about the opportunities of working online, and knew this was it for me.
And my biggest why?
… is fulfilling that little girl’s dream. It’s become my passion, and I will always regret it if I don’t take action. More and more species are going extinct, more forests are being destroyed and more people are getting sick. NOW, is the time to take action.
If you’re feeling the same way and want to work together, or if you want to reach out to me for any other reason: please do!
