…..Would you like:
Everyone should blog!
…Not only is writing therapeutic and good for the soul, but blogs have the power to transform businesses and change lives. The economy of blogging has singlehandedly change the way people make purchasing decisions, and the way we seek and share information on the internet.
It's a beautiful thing because anyone can do it, from the comfort of their own home, and really change the way they live their lives.
I'm Lauren Bowling, and I'm the blogger and editor behind the award winning site Financial Best Life (formerly L Bee and the Money Tree!). A few things to know about me: I've been blogging for over five years, made over six figures from my blogging business, and have worked with some of the biggest brands and publications in the financial space. I've had lots of successes - (and failures!) and have learned so much about blogging from my own experiments and mistakes, I knew I just had to create a course to share it all.
One thing I do know is that blogging can be hard work, and it's easy to get discouraged unless you have a clear path to success.
My #1 goal with this course is to help beginners (even those with zero tech knowledge or skill) feel empowered enough to get out there and start sharing their story and passions and most importantly, build their blogs to a point where they can start generating an income and mastering their own economy.
I've been blogging since 2012. Back then, I was unemployed and had just moved back to my parent's house after two years in NYC where I failed as an actor. I'd been working as an administrative assistant to pay the bills and wasn't really sure what I wanted from life. All I knew, was that I really didn't want to spend my life being someone else's assistant.
While I contemplated my next move, I moved back in with Mom and Dad. Noticing my lack of purpose, my Mom handed me an article from USA Today that gave millennials “tips” for ways to keep their skills sharp while on the job hunt. One of those ways to stay sharp? Starting a blog… which back then was still a new-ish concept.
It could've been the unemployment boredom, but I soon became obsessed with mastering the art of blogging. I'd spend 12 hours a day on the internet researching how WordPress worked, how to leverage social media into readers, and of course, how to use it to make some sweet cash on the side.
I was job hunting when a CEO of a tech company took notice of how much I talked about my (then brand new) blog in my interview. Eventually he offered me a job running the blog and social media of his company.
….And just like that I went from ex-actor to marketing professional, which is why I'm so passionate about a blog's ability to transform people's lives. It changed mine completely!
Blogging has allowed me to change careers (from acting to marketing) without going back to school, and over the years has led to so many amazing opportunities: hundreds of thousands of readers, features in big name publications, getting paid to work with well-known brands, and a sense of creative and personal fulfillment I never dreamed possible when I was sitting at my lonely hedge-fund desk job in New York City.
Eventually, my website became so successful and profitable I was able to leave my full-time job in marketing to work for myself. In the blink of an eye, I went from blogging-on-the-side to self-employed entrepreneur and I haven't looked back.
In 2015, I started coaching other bloggers on how to get started and grow their own online blogs, but coaching one-on-one was more expensive than most readers could afford.
So, I put all of my knowledge in one course at an affordable price point so course students could work with me but with a personal coaching type feel. I'm excited to get up and work every day.
This course is perfect for:
If you want to build a personal brand or “brand of you,” blogging is the way to get it done. Even for those who don't want to be “bloggers”, having a blog is a great complement to any business or solopreneur endeavor.
With all that said, blogging is now fairly commonplace, which means getting started can be daunting (there's SO much information.)
With all this competition, the learning curve for what it takes to be a successful blogger only gets steeper each year.
Think of investing in this course as way to get years worth of blogging and tech know-how in just 60-90 days. It's truly a shortcut to success.
