Hi Friend, Lori Hil here.
North Carolina native, living abroad down in a volcanic crater in Ecuador. 9 years ago I dove headfirst, knowing nothing…nothing about online business, into the blogging, social media, content marketing world. And at the same time, I decided to change continents!
There were tears and sitting in the floor and wandering around lost in a new city where I could hardly communicate. But I grew. I grew a lot!
And now I help online business owners and those who want to be online business owners take some of the overwhelm out, find inspiration, resources, solutions, and support. We may DIY our online businesses here but we do not have to be alone while we do it.
Transition is hard.
While preparing to move abroad I had to sell all my stuff, short of three suitcases, I was sleeping on the floor in a metal building with no windows, and clinging to friends and family before I had to say goodbye. Fortunately, my mom was moving with me to retire so I did not have to go it completely alone with no one who understood, but it was challenging all the same.
Change is hard. Taking a risk like selling all your stuff, moving, starting an online business, blog or anything else where you have to put yourself out there is hard.
I get it.
But let me tell you, the growth is priceless.
I’ve adjusted, I’ve become more, I’ve gotten married, adopted fur babies, explored, struggled, triumphed, failed. And it is still hard. But I would not change it for a thing.
I recently got my Ecuadorian citizenship and my husband and I have our first baby on the way- a prayer of years! Feeling lost so many years ago I never would have thought that this is where I would be now. Life is not always easy but I am so thankful.
It takes time to change your life. It takes time to build something new. It takes persistence to succeed. But you can do it.
You can do the hard things.
I’m here to help and make them less hard and cheer you on with better systems and resources than I had when I got started working online in the digital world, moving, and working towards a better life.
I believe in you!
So grab your favorite beverage and let’s be online biz BFFs!
