✓ Pay off extra debt (student loans, credit cards, that car payment).

✓ Treat yourself to a guilt-free sushi date.

✓ Put that extra money towards your next vacation!

✓ Reinvest that cash back into your business WITHOUT hesitation.

FINALLY feel the financial stability to take risks…confidently.

But first, you need to get past the headache that comes with sifting through the abyss of blog resources out there.

Because getting past the learning curve of growing a blog people actually read makes you want to pull your hair out and throw your laptop out the window.


In less than one year, I turned my blog into a business that allows me to work from anywhere and be location independent.

When I realized that I spend most of my work days creating content, it hit me: I actually turned my passion into my profession.

It all started during my first trip abroad as an adult when I experienced making money blogging while I was away from my laptop.

But it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows.

  • I’ve rebranded my blog over and over and over again trying to find my purpose.
  • I’ve had entire months where I wanted to just press delete and throw my laptop out the window.
  • I’ve partnered with affiliates who have changed their terms completely OR ended their program entirely.

The truth is, we all suffer from self-doubt. We all stress out.



Career in the Making covers my 7-step strategy to turn your blogging passion into a profession.

✓ How to turn your passion for writing into a profitable blog

✓ How to choose the best blogging monetization strategy right for you

✓ Improvements you can make to increase affiliate sales on your blog

✓ How to track affiliate marketing strategy success

✓ Case studies on making money with lifestyle & travel affiliates

✓ Growing your traffic intentionally: comprehensive guides to social media, SEO, and marketing

If you know Career in the Making is exactly what you need to turn your passion into a profession, you can get your copy NOW.




I’ve always dreaded getting into the same routine. Living the same month, EVERY month. Work. Socialize. Sleep. Repeat.

And then I started making money online by creating content for myself and other passionate professionals.

Creating captivating content is the foundation of building a business that allows anyone to kiss the cubicle goodbye and work from anywhere in the world.

After all, storytelling is a profitable industry. Who else binge watches the latest Netflix original series?

And that’s what blogging is: storytelling.

Career in the Making goes into how you can use the art of storytelling to build a blog, tell your story, and make money from affiliate marketing.

You can be strategic with the way you make money blogging. You CAN turn your passion into a profession that makes you love Mondays.

This ebook is the exact opposite of information that can be regurgitated in the blogosphere. Career in the Making is the type of content I crave – it’s detailed, well-written, and applicable.

The fact that it’s written from the perspective of a newer blogger is nice because you can see how possible turning your passion into profit really isDefinitely worth the investment.
