I quit 'a normal 9-5' to design my own dream career and now I want to help you do the same. I'm currently
Slovenia-based self-taught digital marketing specialist, geography and history teacher, tour guide, former 'Dream-Teamer', afraid-of-boats yacht stewardess, love to fly frequent flyer, self-taught 'photographer', puzzle champion, and a content creator.
As you can see, I don't have a passionate love story about my online business, where I can say ''I knew I was going to do this since I was 10''. Actually, when I was 10 I wanted to be Geography and History Teacher and a Tour Guide. (Social Media was not a 'thing' back then.) And to be honest, I do have a Teaching Degree and a Tour Guide Licence.
When I am not working as an online marketer or tour guide, you will most probably find me strolling in a foreign city, enjoying good food and wine in Italy or Greece, meeting locals on the Pacific Islands, learning about the history of Japan, or tanning on the beaches in Fiji.
It was traveling, unexpected moments, and working with people that inspired me to get serious with the world online on Social Media.
I am just not fit to sit in the same office, day in and day out waiting for life to go by. Don't get me wrong, I have done it. But it is just not me. :) I love teaching and watching people how they get it. In spite of that I prefer to work hard(er), explore, fail, learn, try again, go out of my comfort zone, learn some more, have funny laughs from past mistakes, and make lifelong connections with strangers that became my other family.
You might have figured it out, that my Social Media journey happened by surprise. It took me more than 5 years of observing, learning, trial and error. It didn't happen overnight but by applying what all of those jobs have thought me. And I have had more than a couple. In spite of that, all of those jobs had (at least) 3 things in common - to be creative, to be organized, and to be customer-focused.
I learned how to ...
... make videos from the pros working at Netflix and Masterchef;
... get the right video frame from being a part of the TV production crew;
... what lightning means from being a 'Dream Team' on reality TV Survivor;
... tell a (funny) story from producers of reality TV shows;
... pose and talk on a camera from Survivor host and his team;
... present boring things in a fun way by being a teacher;
... prepare and organize what to say from being a tour guide and teacher;
... sell and pitch with confidence by being a travel agent;
... make the detail pop up by being a yacht stewardess;
... communicate in a foreign language by living abroad.
It took me more than 5 years to do it. And If I can do it, so can you! I can not say it will be easy but it will be worth it. What I can say is, that you don't need 5 years. You can learn from me, apply what is written in this book, and take action. By doing so, even if progress is small, you will succeed and be able to live your dreams.
Now, I am so happy you are here, reading this and following your dreams. You don't have to go through every one of my experiences. But if you decide to work with me or learn from me, you too can have it all.
It is your time to shine.
It’s a pleasure to meet you!
