About Me

So, “This Girl Did Good eh?”
Yes. Yes I did.

In 2018 I was a soon-to-be divorced, single Mum of two who wanted to stop relying on the state and rise from the ashes. So I did.

So, “This Girl Did Good eh?”. Yes. Yes I did. I was a single mum, going through a divorce and I decided to pull myself out of the mess and do something with myself. I wanted to get off of benefits and the only way at the time was to become self-employed. I couldn’t get out to work because of having a toddler so I decided to find something that I could do from home.

Yes, I could have got a job selling health and beauty products or similar, but I wanted something that could be done purely from home. No delivering etc.

So the search online began. I found various get rich quick schemes and believe me I tried many! I even won over £14,000 in prizes whilst comping. One was a trip to New York. I vowed to go there again.

Determined to get off of benefits, I then set up Oh For Five Minutes and started working from home doing my dream job of designing and printing handbags. Then Coronavirus struck. We went into lockdown, sales stopped overnight. Who wants a handbag when they can’t go out?

I watched my savings disappear and with the children off school I knew I had to find something else.

Then one day I was making a printable to help my daughter manage screen time. I shared it on Facebook and someone suggested I sold it. “Would people buy it?” I wondered.

So I headed to Pinterest and did a search for making printables to sell. I devoured as much information as possible and then took the step to open a new Etsy shop. I sold my first printable the next day! Kaching went my phone! And then again, and again the next day, and again!!! I left it for a week whilst I muddled through lockdown with two children. At the end of the week I had earned more than enough to cover the time it took to make it.

I did another one, this time a mood tracker. I left it and kaching went my phone later that day. This was insane!

So from that one printable I had stumbled across the idea of printables for a passive income. I created another one the next day and it soon became clear that with just a few hours work a day I could earn extra money whilst I slept! Side note: Over 5 years ago I had opened an Etsy shop to sell digital papers. The market was saturated and I’d not sold many so I left it untouched.  (It is now thriving since I’ve reopened it and applied my new found knowledge to it.)

Passive income isn’t just about being an affiliate or just setting up a sales funnel and sitting back.

To be successful, to go from just a few pounds a day to hundreds of pounds a day, you need to learn other things too. Blogging, marketing, email lists, lead magnets and much more.

I’m going to share what I’ve learned (and am still learning!) with you in the FREE TGDG Academy. I look forward to joining you on this new and exciting journey you are about to embark on!

Oh and why the New York picture? It is what has motivated me on my journey. I want to be there again.
