Hi! I’m Tertia,
I started this blog because I was looking for a new challenge. I wanted to create a business where I could earn extra income for our family, while working from home.
My first stint as an entrepreneur was in high school. I had a great little business going where I sold photos of the popular guys and girls in school to my classmates who had crushes on them. At first I couldn’t keep up with the orders, but once everyone had the pictures they wanted, that was the end of it!
Fast forward a few years and then I started a practice as life coach and personal development trainer. Before that, I had a good paying corporate job in marketing (because getting a good corporate job is what you do, right?) but I wanted to be self-employed more than anything, and I ended up running training programs for blue-chip companies.
It was around this time that I tried my hand at blogging, but I never took it seriously and after a while I stopped.
When our kids were born, I became a stay-at-home mom for a while. I’m grateful that I was able to spend this time with them, however, as they got older, my entrepreneurial spirit kicked in again and I really wanted to start working again. I was looking for something that was both flexible and rewarding.
Enter blogging. From my past attempts at blogging, I now knew what NOT to do. It takes a lot of hard work to be successful with blogging. But more so, I believe that with the right strategy and tools it is possible for anyone to do it.
So, while I’m building an online business I will share with you exactly what I’m doing to be successful. I believe that my background in training will help me show you just how to build a successful blogging business yourself, in a practical, applicable-to-your-life way.
On a more personal note
I am from South Africa and have been living in Austria since 2012. I’m married to a creative out-the-box thinking husband and we have 2 boys aged 5 and 3, both who have wild imaginations like their daddy.
