But let's back up.
You might remember 2008. The economy was in a shambles. The housing market was in crisis. The US government had to bail out the automotive industry to keep it from collapsing.
And me? Well, I worked in a tiny factory right in the middle of the rust belt, where we were making an alarmingly smaller number of car parts every single month.
That year, I drove to work each morning wondering if that would be the day I'd find the building permanently shuttered and me and my 150 coworkers out of work. I was desperate for other options, but I had two things working against me: First, the economy. There weren't any jobs to be had. Also, I was woefully underqualified for the job I had, so making a move to another employer was out, unless I wanted to take a serious cut in pay.
That's when I stumbled upon the idea that you could make money online, and (even better) I discovered that many of these online entrepreneurs were actively looking for writers.
"Hey," I thought. "I can write!" And so I did.
By 2010, as the economy started to recover, I had a nice little side hustle going. I had a few steady clients, and I was earning enough from my fledgling business to cover the mortgage every month and then some. I started having daydreams about ditching the day job and working from home full time.
Then one summer day, a client called to ask, "Can I hire you for 20 hours per week as my project manager?"
By that Thanksgiving, I'd turned in my company laptop and traded my cubicle for a corner office—a corner of my basement, that is. I lovingly referred to my new digs as "the dungeon" because it was so dark and damp, but over the years I spent in my dungeon, I helped to build dozens of six- and seven-figure empires for my clients.
I wrote sales pages and designed funnels for product sellers. I created webinars and ran ad campaigns for coaches. I built membership sites and forums; I managed email campaigns and Facebook groups; I even did a little website coding.
Then one Christmas I realized something.
I was turning away potential clients because I simply did not have the time available for them. And there were others who I knew I could help, but who couldn't afford my rates.
What if I changed my focus from done-for-you freelancing, and instead began serving a much larger audience on a much more affordable level?
In early 2018, I set out to do just that, and launched my very own Tiny Course Empire.
Today I share all of the systems and processes I developed over years of working one-on-one with clients, and I help you learn how to launch, grow, and scale your own online business.
