How I Created My Dream Job In Less Than A Year

 

Three years ago, we were sitting around a kitchen table planning what we would do when we hit our first 1,000 views. 7 million views, a sold-out line of events, an office full of hard-working girls and a book later, here we are.

Anything’s possible if you put in a little hard work and believe in yourself, babe! We’re the proof of that, and there’s no big secret we’re protecting, either. We’re an open book! So how did we get from a kitchen table to where we are now?

 

 

1. Forget perfection

Celina and Ellen came up with the idea for Career Girl Daily three years ago after spotting a gap in the market. The first few weeks of the blog it looked a lot different than it does now, but they didn’t try to start perfect, they just started and kept building on it. Back then, we did dream about the blog becoming what it is now, even though people thought we were crazy. Remember that your business is a work in progress, and you learn as you go. Those first few weeks, Celina, Ellen, and I sat around a kitchen table and brainstormed content. Three years later, we’re sitting around our office table doing the same.

In our book, The Ultimate Blog Plan, we share more about how to find out what you can give to other people, and what you want for yourself. You need to know how to leverage your blog to create the kind of career you want.

2. Take it seriously

Treating your business like it’s already successful is the fastest way to achieve your goals. We took CGD seriously from the beginning, meetings, events, and trips were all part of the business growth. Even though our families and friends questioned us, and mentioned getting a ‘real job’, we knew that staying dedicated to what we wanted would end up working out.

Each month we’d set ourselves a new goal, whether it was to grow our audience, write better content, grow our team or have a proper office. Eventually, those goals become a reality, but you can’t lose sight of what you’re doing. On the day, we’ll talk about the content creation strategies we’ve learned that will make your blog super popular and help it become your full-time job, so if it’s your dream, you can make it a reality.

3. Think big

A while ago, throwing our first event seemed like a huge goal. Launching a second website seemed like a mountain we could never climb. Publishing a book seemed crazy. Managing a team seemed like a pipe dream. Yet, all those things have come true. Don’t underestimate yourself, push yourself to succeed and step out of your comfort zone.

During our talk, we’ll share how you can make your blog super popular and answer all your burning questions about how we wrote the book, how we created full-time jobs in two years and how to get noticed fast. We want to inspire and motivate you to take your blog to the next level whether you’re starting a business, building a brand or just want to blog for your full-time job.
