Getting Started with My Blog

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for checking out my blog. If you're new here and want to know how to get started, this page is just for you! This page will get you up to speed with what I'm all about — supporting my family with my online business, starting a freelance career, learning to design & code, teaching online courses, living an unconventional lifestyle, passive income & more.

Passive Income & Teaching Online Courses

In early 2012, I was introduced to the amazing potential of passive income. Pat Flynn, of SmartPassiveIncome.com, defines Passive Income like this:

Building online businesses that take advantage of systems of automation that allow transactions, cash flow, and growth to happen without requiring a real-time presence.

— Pat Flynn, SmartPassiveIncome.com

The passive income generated from my online courses allowed me to take my family on a 3-week vacation to Hawaii.

At the beginning of 2013 I launched my very first Udemy course that taught people how to code a website in 4-hours. I sold it for $39, and the moment my first sale came in, my eyes had opened — I saw a great potential in creating online courses and generating passive income.

Over the past 3+ years, I've established myself as an authority in the web design tutorial & freelancing niche, created an online course brand that accounts for the majority of my business revenue, and built a significant following of passionate students.

I went from quitting my stable job to supporting my family on a single freelancing income to changing the lives of others and making money in my sleep. It feels pretty good!

Location Independent Self-Employment

I know it's kind of a mouthful, but abbreviating it as LISE sounds too much like "lice"... Essentially what this means is that I'm self-employed and I can run my business from anywhere; a home studio, an airplane, the beach, a coffee shop, etc. I used to work a 9-to-5 job in an office, but I was never a good employee and had always dreamed of working for myself.

That one time my office was a gazebo.
Now I run my business from home, my company Brightside Studios Inc. provides custom marketing solutions to businesses and agencies, and I run an online business teaching hundreds of thousands of students how to design, code and start freelance businesses.

Choosing to work for myself has been the best professional decision I've ever made, and I'd love to share more with you about how you can do the same!

Travelling with Children

In early 2013, we had a baby! It was incredibly life changing for us in the best way possible, and in no way did that stop us from doing what we love to do — travel. Of course, travelling with a child requires a totally new way of figuring out travel, but it definitely hasn't stopped us — and it doesn't have to stop you! In Ayla's first six months of life, we travelled as a family over 10,000km.
(Full disclosure: we now have another baby, and we have yet to travel such a significant amount with both of them! However, we have some upcoming trips planned.)
