I hadn’t gotten to sleep until after midnight the night before – I didn’t even get off work until 11p. And yet early the next morning a supervisor at my job called me to ask me about a comma. Specifically to figure out who to blame for the misplacement of a comma.

And that was the moment I knew that this could not be my long-term career. Two and a half years before I was able to quit my day job, I made the decision that I want to.

For the next two and a half years I worked on BUILDing my online platform – building the community around Lemon and Raspberry, building my online income, building my online reputation. All with the eye to quitting my day job.

What do YOU want from life?click here to register

Maybe you want to be a thought-leader and become a regular guest on daytime talk shows. Maybe you want to be a reality TV star. Maybe you want to launch a business selling handmade children’s aprons. Maybe you just want a second income to be able to quit your day job soon.

Either way, you need to build a community, build a business and build your blog.

I built a blog that has helped me quit my day job – with fewer than 1000 readers and ZERO advertisers.

The Petersiks from Young House Love built a blog that can employ both of them as well as get them a book deal. Elsie and Emma of A Beautiful Mess built a blog that can employ a whole team, get them a book deal and change their whole career trajectory.

My personal goals have been somewhat smaller, but my blog (Lemon and Raspberry) still has been the driving force behind reaching those goals and quitting my day job.

And I want to teach you to do the same.

The BUILD ecourse is for

  • stay at home moms who want to build a side income
  • small business owners who want more sales
  • aspiring thought-leaders who want speaking gigs or book deals
  • anyone creative who wants to accomplish something


Whatever your long-term goals are – if you want to do anything even remotely interesting or skill-based – a blog can help you reach them.

I’ve put months into crafting the BUILD self-paced blogging ecourse – complete with actionable steps, downloadable worksheets, hundreds of external resources and special BONUS video interviews.
