Hey I’m Amy, 24 year old living in Los Angeles! I started this blog a couple years ago to follow my dreams of work and travel, and to help people build online businesses that help them do the same.
I started my career working 9-5 assistant jobs in real estate when I was 18 years old. I figured if I worked hard for 5+ years and save up a lot of money, I could spend the rest of my life traveling and doing the things I really love.
Not that my plan wasn’t good, but I felt like I was always waiting on something to be able to do the things I really wanted to do.
I wasn’t getting too far with my assistant job, but I was starting to see a market need in real estate for social media management. This alone sparked an idea for me to start an online social media management business, where I could work online and travel.
So I went ahead and started this business (it was called “Social4RE”), offering social media marketing to real estate agents. It didn’t grow into the monster business that I thought it would, but it did have a great run being that I was only 18 and I helped several agents manage their social media. Anyway, I knew I wasn’t done with this online business game lol.
I quit my 9-5 real estate job and decided to mentor under a successful commercial real estate broker to learn how to sell multi-family buildings. I went back to my “make big money, then travel” mindset. Within seven months, by age 20, I had listed and sold three multi-family buildings totaling $6.5mil in sales volume. This rapid success in commercial real estate taught me invaluable skills around business foundations, sales, and where to take big action steps that move the needle forward in business.
So after my successful run in commercial real estate sales, I decided it wasn’t the industry I wanted to be in. It provided financial freedom, but it lacked that location freedom and flexibility I was still craving.
So I went back to the drawing board again.
I decided to start an online business offering social media marketing and advertising services to online clothing brands. After gaining momentum with that business and getting clients, I took up another mentorship opportunity, which is where I am at now at 24. This time under Sam Ovens, a successful online business coach and marketing genius, to learn the ropes of online business in more detail with the best in the business.
The opportunities we have to build online businesses is really close to my heart. There is so much freedom in building something of your own, being able to have customers all over the world, and being able to work and travel wherever there is wifi.
To me, online business means complete and total aliveness. Being able to go where you want whenever you want to. It’s the feeling of self independence, endless possibilities, constant adventure, new faces, new experiences. It’s priceless.
So thank you for visiting my site, and if you have dreams of work + travel and online business, I’m hope there is something on my site that can help push you dreams closer to reality!
