Have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe, there was a better way to live life - a live full of OMG abundance?
So did I, boo boo, so I went looking for it fairly early in my career.
I'm Tarla, known to my ride or dies as T, and I'm a Fashion Designer and Copywriter turned Personal Branding and Social Media Entrepreneur. This is my story...or long story boring, as I like to say.
When I first started working, I was an agency copywriter. It wasn't but six years into my career where I felt overworked as an employee and devalued as a person. Like crying into my hazelnut latte type of devalued. So, true story, I just up and quit one day, without planning to. It had been in the back of my mind, but I just had a moment where I knew I couldn't do it anymore. Suddenly, I felt free as a bird. That lasted about 2 days until I remembered I had a mortgage payment and was the only one to pay it! Through a combination of industriousness and insane courage, I made a phone call that changed my life and turned my career into a freelance one. It was cray cray now that I think about it.
This girl was on fi-yah! I used the power of the wild wild Web to create a yearly multiple 6 figure income as a freelance copywriter, working from my laptop and my bed. It was so amaze-balls, in fact, that I self-funded my own shoe and handbag lines that took me overseas to Brazil, Thailand, and Italy in pursuit of sourcing the the finest leathers and nailing the perfect production. But while it was a dream come true at first, another 7 years into this profession, I still traded time for money, and I still felt constrained by a daily schedule for my clients, one that made lengthy vacas almost non-existent. In fact, I remember one such vaca to Cabo where a business partner made me feel like I committed the ultimate crime and ruined my getaway with countless work requests. I thought, like seriously? This is freedom? I felt the need for something greater - with even more flexibility, that allowed me to work how, when, and where I pleased. 'Cause that's how I do me, boo.
So cue the glitter confetti....I turned to the Internet knowing I could make income online and adopt a true Laptop Lifestyle without the need for face to face clients meetings, any schedules, or reporting in during "vacas." After much research, money spent, and time learning, I finally discovered the secret formula to work from home on my schedule, when I wanted. I was all ready to pop the champagne, but I realized how hard it was to determine what educational materials, marketing programs, and business opportunities were legit and even where to start to begin with. Being sensitive to this as I was myself scammed by a business in the past to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars, I wanted to make sure other boss babes had a place to turn to - one based out of integrity. I knew I could create thorough step-by-step courses for those looking to leverage the world of online entrepreneurship. The first to launch is the BFF Copy Code, a modern copywriting crash course for female entrepreneurs, coming mid 2019. #YAY!
I am now leveraging the Web to create a home based business that instead works for me 24/7 - even while I'm dreaming (of creme brûlée, let's be honest) - and allows time freedom because it is based on the principle of passive and residual income. This is the same principle I currently teach others - and which I will expand upon in my comprehensive online courses created just for supastar hustlers like you. I use my motto of #YouAreAShiningStar, based on the meaning of my first name, to inspire and empower other boss babes. The best part? This lifestyle is one that lends itself perfectly to pursuing other passions, just like I used to (and may again) with my shoe and handbag design.
If you are nodding your head and saying "HELL yeah!" to a lifestyle of luxury and freedom blended with your lifelong passions and sealed with a bow, then head on over to my "Swag" tab now to get started.
We're gonna slay!!
