15 years ago, I started a blog in my very little spare time.
In just one month, I generated $40,000 in sales from a $24 digital creation. No overhead expenses, no costly ads - just pure creativity and a modest readership that stumbled upon my new blog.
That’s when I realized my website was not just a creative outlet, it was a full-blown second career in the making. My graphic design business was already soaring, but this new venture had the potential to eclipse it, becoming my main gig in the not-so-distant future.
It was the early days of social media and a brand new website called Pinterest had everyone talking.
The moment I embraced Pinterest, the traffic to my websites skyrocketed, sales surged, and prominent brands began knocking on my virtual door.
Then, something truly remarkable happened - Pinterest called to invite me to be their first Pinterest Ambassador. Being entrusted with this role was exhilarating, and I had the privilege of representing Pinterest as their official speaker at prestigious social media conferences.
