Hey I’m Leah. It’s a very confusing name. It’s actually pronounced Leh-yuh.
I get Lee-yuh and Lay-ya a lot. Oh well! I don’t even know how to say it myself. lol
I was just another shy and introverted girl. All my life I was told to ‘get good grades, go to college, and you’ll land an amazing job.’ I graduated college and was barely making any money. I was underpaid, barely making above minimum wage, and felt unappreciated at my job. I started to question if that was it for me. Was my life just going to stay the same way forever? According to my retirement plan, I wasn’t even going to have enough money to live comfortably if I stayed in the same direction. Heck, I wasn’t even really living at all.
I felt like I was a complete failure. And most of all, a complete failure to my parents. After all, they didn’t raise me to be a failure and they sure did not sacrifice everything to put me in school, only to be making just above minimum wage. Externally, I was passing off everything as going great. Even though my income could barely pay for my survival. I told anyone who asked about my job that I loved it. Not only was I dreading my job, but I was only seeing my husband on the weekends since we worked different hours. We were also in $35,000 worth of credit card debt that just kept piling up since we were dipping in credit cards to survive.
I realized that no job was ever going to pay me enough and no corporate job would ever give the schedule where I could see my husband more than the weekends. I needed to do my own thing and set my own schedule. So I started learning how to make money online. I started doing freelance graphic design and wedding photography since I’ve always been a creative. My degree was in design after all, so I thought I would start with that. I tried lots of different businesses. Then I found a business that really changed the way I viewed life because it put my health and mindset first. It taught me to design the life I’ve always wanted. It introduced me to personal development. It also introduced me to passive and residual income. This form of income completely changed my life and I eventually was able to get us out of the $35,000 credit card debt.
Through my journey, I realized that I want others to know that there is a better way of living, and not just going by day to day accepting the same motion. I love helping others get started with their own online business. And that’s where this blog comes in! I share all the things that I’ve learned about about running an online business, creating different passive income streams, building a brand, and the mindset it takes.

Some brands I’ve collaborated with
Leah and I had a half an hour branding session where she helped me get started on my main message. In these begining stages of my business I have been obsessive about following frameworks, coming up with lists, tasks, etc. My main belief in life is that we are limitless. Life comes to us as we manifest it, every step of the way, and we are beings of free will to change it at any point in time.
My life has been a story of how I got to what I am doing today. It was through serrendipity after serendipity that I have come to realize my own light. While developing a message for a business that wishes to cultivate personal development and awareness in others, to help them see their own talents, and attain lifestyle freedom, I have come up with my slogan, “Freedom doesnt come in a box!”and to not limit my own self in the process.
Talking to Leah was full of giggles. She understood my story pretty instantly and allowed me to come to my own realizations in an empowering and joyful way. I love her energy of empowerment and I truly appreciate the powerful epiphany during our session!
