I just quit the rat race and I feel euphoric! I am now free to focus on creating an income around what I am passionate about I am focusing on building my own dreams instead of somebody else's. I can't explain the pure and utter relief that came after this breakthrough. But let me just rewind a bit cause I'm getting ahead of myself.
After graduating from high school I went to study art. This was after I was advised by my family that this might not be the best thing to do, since, you know, artists are known to starve. But, I went to do it anyway because I knew that I wanted to be an artist and there was no compromise in this. I had no idea how I was going to do it, but I knew that somehow I'll get there.
After graduating with a degree in fine art, I got married and moved to glamorous Dubai. I imagined that this was where my amazing life would begin. But life hit the dreamer in me like a shovel.
I entered the rat race as most of us do. I worked in an art gallery and even as a florist at one point. The jobs I was in always had something to do with art and creativity, but it was still not exactly what I wanted to do and it left me little time to actually do what I was passionate about. But, I figured that everyone needed to start somewhere and I continued to pursue my dreams in the little time I had after work. I even managed to get a couple of commissions here and there.
All in all, my life was ...ok. Looking back now I think it was pretty dull and grey.
But I then got divorced and I felt like everything was falling apart. I ended making a whole lot of bad choices, one of them being alcohol abuse. I remember coming home one morning, after accidentally cutting my forehead on a beer glass at a bar, to my cats fighting. In an attempt to separate them, one cat bit my hand... on top of everything else that was going on in my life! That's when I took the picture on the left. It was a promise to myself that I would not sink lower than I already have.
Since I had no savings, I ended up in a tiny room which I nicknamed my shoebox. It was literally so small I could barely stand next to my single bed without banging my elbow against the wall when I was putting on a sweater.
It was at this point where I started to develop this sense of urgency that something needs to change.
It was here where I really started to think about the direction that my life was going in. I dared to think about this kind of stuff then because I guess I had nothing more to lose at that point. I was courageous enough to start thinking about how it is such a waste being stuck in the rat race for most of your life and not having enough time and freedom to do what you're actually passionate about.
So I jumped on the internet, not really knowing what to search for, but thankfully I came across two girls who were living the kind of lifestyle that I craved. They have the time to pursue their own dreams and to do things they were passionate about and they could even travel as often as they wanted to thanks to their laptop lifestyle!
I didn't want to be left behind on what seemed to be the adventure of a lifetime, so I decided to click on their ad and i learnt that you can easily set up your own business online.
With me, being an artist, I immediately thought about not having the time to create a dozen paintings to sell online, but I learnt that you actually don't even need your own products, because there are so many high ticket commissions to be earned through affiliate marketing, which is something I didn't even know existed. Literally all you need to get started is a laptop and a wifi connection.
I'm so grateful that I took the time to look into this, because not only was I granted the opportunity to quit my job and focus on building my own dreams, but I now also have the opportunity to help people who are in the same situation as I was to quit the rat race and live a life of freedom!
I now spend my days working on my own online business, my favourite part of it being creating online painting tutorials on You Tube. Apart from that, I enjoy brainstorming ideas with my boyfriend/ best friend for his next photoshoot. We also enjoy traveling together! Here is a picture of us in the forest in Latvia.
I have never been as happy in my life as I am today. The great thing about the six figure mentors is that there is also an amazingly supportive community who are always willing to help whenever you feel stuck and there are plenty of mentors who make sure you have the right mindset too!

I wish you the best of luck and I dare you to have the courage to follow your dreams and make them a part of your reality.
