My mind used to be made up too… “I will dread going to work every day for the rest of my life.
Let’s face it, that’s just normal”… SMACK!
I can’t believe I ever thought about life that way. Here’s the story of how it all changed.
In 2014 I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala and volunteer with people with special needs. As soon as I saw the world through eyes other than my own, a light switched on inside of me. From that moment on, teaching within the same four walls every day did not bring me joy. After returning to Guatemala many times, I knew I needed to find a way to fund a lifestyle centred around travel. There was one small problem. I had no idea where to start.
So I did what any bright, blonde, 22-year-old girl would do. In 2015, I moved to Central America to figure it out. I spent my days exploring, my nights bartending, and any waking moment I had left on researching the remote lifestyle. I applied to a handful of remote jobs and luckily landed one with an email marketing company. I had set myself free! I spent the next year of my life working from my laptop and travelling the world. Mexico, Lithuania, Colombia, Morocco, Spain, the list goes on. Friends, family, and straight up strangers wanted to know how it’s done. I saw so many deserving people with a strong desire to work remotely with no idea where to start out. I had to do something…
I experimented by sending a few newsletters, listing remote job opportunities in various industries and the results were insane! People started applying and landing jobs right away. I was screaming with joy (literally) and knew I could continue to help people all over the world. Now, I run monthly memberships, create courses, and lead a Facebook Group, Remote Like Me Community, on how to find and land remote jobs. It’s time to start your journey today. I’m honoured to be your guide.
