Discover how Jessica closed one business, launched a new one and ditched her job all in a matter of months.
“I don’t even know how I came across Nadia, it may have been a Facebook ad… but, I liked the way she spoke about business and the things she stood for. So, I decided, for the first time ever, to actually get some help and take the first step.
I had plenty of experience running someone else’s business, in my day job, but I hadn’t tried anything else out before. I was just spending my evenings hanging out and wasting time on the internet/
When I first joined Nadia’s tribe I was desperate to make some changes in my life! I always knew I wanted to have a business and I had an idea, but I hadn’t even started executing it yet – so really, when I first joined up – I had no business to speak of.
All I had was an an idea, which I was very passionate about, but in working with Nadia we soon realised that it was going to be a huge uphill struggle.
I really wanted to have a business that was going to let me follow my dreams, where people would pay for my services, and it soon became clear that my original idea was not going to do that.
I was new to it all and trying to grow a business that wasn’t going to suit my lifestyle – ever. So I decided to make a change.
The first big change I made, whilst working with Nadia, was to stop wasting time with my current business and shut it down. Eeeek.
Then, a couple of months later, I had the idea for a business that would be based entirely online and built on my strengths. I started my new business working as a VA with an emphasis of tech, in April, and by November it had grown so much that I was able to quit my job!
I feel so happy that I had the confidence to make the change. I would not be singing along to songs while working from home, if I hadn’t!
My biggest mistake was not quitting my job sooner. I could have achieved it much earlier, but I was convinced I needed to have reached the right amount of money.
As soon as I quit, I was able to put myself out there, and things started to happen really quickly. I wish I’d done it sooner.
Nowadays, my business is going really well.
I have reached my monthly income target for the last 3 months and am now working on growing things. I’m still optimising and perfecting our processes, because some of them are not as efficient as they could be, but overall I’m happy with how things are now. I am now making everything more scalable.
Since I started working with Nadia I have increased my income from actually making a loss to a consistent £2500 per month, quitting my job and focussing on my business full-time. I’ve even taken on 2 freelance team members!
Nadia really delivers on what she promises.
She promised me to get me to $5000 per month and I’m nearly there.
I love the regular reality checks and knowing that there is someone there I can bounce my ideas off.
Over the past few months I’ve learned to
- believe in myself.
- work hard.
- not make excuses.
- not get distracted by shiny things (especially services and courses)!
I just love the group of entrepreneurs I’ve got to know through Nadia. It’s an amazing support network!
My plans for the future…… I’m going to keep growing and see where it takes me!”
