From a Raw Food Blogger to a Six Figure Digital Strategist

From a Raw Food Blogger to a Six Figure Digital Strategist

Would you be willing to quit your day job on Wall Street to start an online business? That’s exactly what Nathalie Lussier did with Real Foods Witch; a blog that receives over 750,000 visitors a year.

With this success, readers and clients were asking her how she did it … which leads to where she is at today.

Nathalie has been featured on Forbes, Business Insider, Inc., Yahoo and Fast Company. Read on to find out about her amazing journey to six figures.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.

I remember always coming up with ideas for businesses when I was a kid growing up, and when I got my first computer I realized I could create websites … I was hooked! I studied Software Engineering in University, and worked as an intern on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley.

When I graduated I had a job offer on Wall Street, but my business was whispering to me … So I turned it down to start my first business, all online, which was a stepping stone to the business I have today and run with my husband, AmbitionAlly – which is a software company designing products for female business owners.

Give us an example of how you first monetized your online business.

When I was just starting out, I offered 1-1 coaching calls and later I created an online training product that I launched and re-launched. I’ve found that starting with a service business is much easier, and it helps you design more leveraged products over time. (more…)

4 Reasons Working from Home is Perfect for Empty Nesters

4 Reasons Working from Home is Perfect for Empty NestersBy Christy Schutz

In the past, I have written about the changes that take place as our children leave the house and we transition to that “Empty Nester” status. I have one more child at home who is entering her sophomore year of high school, so, it is something I think about quite often. As I ponder the who, what, where, when, how and why of this particular transition, I am realizing that my work-at-home lifestyle is actually going to be ideal for the empty nest stage of my life, too.

Maybe you are imagining a morose scene, with me taking brief breaks in between work to visit my children’s empty bedrooms and sob over past memories, but, that definitely isn’t what I am picturing.

Here are four Empty Nester scenarios I am imagining that fit in perfectly with my telecommuting lifestyle.

Travel and Make Money

I have always loved travel. I love visiting new places, particularly historical places, and imagining the wonderful things people accomplished and the cultures in which they lived. Once we become Empty Nesters, my husband and I have plans to pick up and start exploring as much as possible. (more…)

How to Work From Home as a Transcriptionist

How to Work From Home as a TranscriptionistBy Sheeroh

Digitization is gradually taking over everything and transforming the manner in which things are done. Most of all, it is taking them online. We are banking, shopping, dating, and socializing online. Better still, people are working online!

Transcription is one of the available work from home jobs whereby freelancers are converting their skills into dollars.

Here is everything you need to know about online transcription jobs.

What is it?

In the simplest form, transcription is the process by which live or recorded audio is converted into an electronic document. Better put, it is writing down speech. The audio can be a lecturer speaking, an interview between two people, a sermon, podcast, webinar, or just any form of speech.

Why convert these recordings to text? You may ask. Because some professionals are too busy to type their work they use the help of transcribers. Again, people with hearing complications may require knowledge such as that from lectures. In addition, these people need to understand movies; and again, transcribers come in to help. Also, you may have recorded a very helpful video on social media marketing or another topic, but for some people, such as employees, may not be able to watch it in the office. Therefore, transcripts come in handy. (more…)

Sharing Her Secrets on How to Get High-Paying Clients

Sharing Her Secrets on How to Get High-Paying ClientsTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.

I come from a family of entrepreneurs. My father owns a furniture restoration company in the Northwest, my brother owns part of the business, and my mom helps him run his business and has had some of her own endeavors as well. Growing up, I knew I didn’t want to work for someone else. This was partially because of the freedom and financial security I saw that my parents were able to achieve by owning their own companies, but also because by nature I’m very independent and creative.  Going into the family business wasn’t an option for me with my need to do something that was my own and gave me creative freedom, so I tried and tested several businesses from a very young age. My first company that I started was when I was 12 years old and so being an entrepreneur has really been the only thing I know.

What did you do before launching your business?

Before I started Amanda Becker Coaching I owned a few other businesses. But, I’ll be honest, they existed only for the sake of making money. I was struggling financially and was stubbornly independent, so I started some of my businesses just out of desperation to make money and for freedom. The key businesses were my music education companies, in which we provided in home music lessons. In other words, myself and my contractors drove to student’s homes, in rush hour traffic, each day to provide the lessons. It was incredibly stressful and not very time efficient.

I had over 20 years of private musical training on the piano, voice, guitar, cello, and other instruments. Everyone told me how talented I was, and how this was what I was “supposed” to do. But in my heart I knew it wasn’t the right thing for me. I just wasn’t passionate about teaching music. I would even say I hated it. It didn’t feel meaningful enough to me. I wanted to impact the world in a different way and always had a passion for working with women. I still wanted to teach, but I wanted to teach what I was really passionate about: business and personal finance.
