In today's episode, I'm sharing how I landed my first recurring social media client who paid me $300 every month and the lessons I learned from being a newbie to the world of online business.

I wanted to share this because first of all if you are at the beginning of your journey, I want to remind you that we all started at zero.

Secondly, it's important to realize that while there is indeed A LOT of useless hype on the internet about making money online, it is possible to earn money on your terms.

In this episode, I touch on:

  • How I landed that first $300 per month social media client and how that quickly turned in $1000 per month
  • Practical steps on landing your first paying client
  • How to use your day job to fund your side hustle
  • How to take the advice you hear from internet personalities (myself included) with a grain of salt
  • The importance of celebrating your growth on your entrepreneurial journey.
