THE HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
My name is Anna; I hail from Poland; a country where I spent the first 21 years of my life. Things started to fall apart, and I decided to pack my bag and move to England.
The reality of migrating to another country dawned on me, and I realised I had less than three weeks to make something good of myself. I was entirely determined never to return to Poland until I had achieved something of note. I didn't care about the mountains I would need to climb or the hurdles I would cross.
My journey to self-realisation wasn't a rosy one. I was homeless and lived in empty buildings. Despite these trying times, I met some of the brightest minds who thought me a lot about life and different perspectives.
In 2006 my son David was born.
As a single parent, living in a small town, it wasn't easy to find a job, so I had to compromise (I was not aware of the numerous online business opportunities lying in wait).
THE TURNING POINT
Not knowing what to do with my life, in the Summer of 2016, I took my son to Poland so that he could stay with his grandparents. That enabled me to go to Peru for the Ayahuasca Retreat.
I spent over a month in 'The Temple of The Way of Light' located in the Amazon Rainforest. Working with the Shipibo healers, I went through deep healing on all levels: physical, emotional, psychological, energetic and spiritual.
That experience has played a significant impact on my life and decisions I have made.
A few months after the retreat, I travelled to Dubai to learn some skills on how to control my parachute. As a qualified skydiver, I wanted to improve my canopy control.
I overheard some people talking about their job, working on their laptop, from anywhere they want to so that they can skydive all over the world.
Two women were talking about their transition from their regular jobs and unfulfilled lives, offering education on how to build an online business.
Call it gut instinct, intuition or luck, I realised that I alone could turn thing around for myself by taking the required actions.
I didn't want to wait any longer for the perfect moment. The solution had been in front of me the whole time!
I realised that the internet is a powerful tool that allows the average person to set up a business with low costs and little risks.
Also, running a digital business allows a person to set up automated systems that could generate income and sales over and over again, even when snoozing!
Generating income from anywhere in the world; free from strict working schedules and the whims of a boss was everything to me.
This idea of leveraging off other people’s products and creating automated systems that can allow a business to work for you as opposed to trading your time for money was brilliant.
