Hi I'm  Maya

I'm a blogger, freelancer, and former successful restaurant owner.

At 26 I took a failing restaurant/sports bar and turned it into a money machine. I was sooo proud of my hard work and life was pretty spectacular. (I'll explain what that has to do with blogging in a sec.)

But it hasn't all been pumpkin pie and chardonnay.  

Listen to this, it's a doozy...

Four years after finding success with my restaurant, when my daughter had just turne one, my life turned upside down when my husband decided to tell me he wanted a divorce...oh and when could I move out? Yep. 

After a long divorce battle I ended up a broke, 100% on my own single mom, with no business, no job, and a child that I had no clue how I was going to provide for. #NoBiggie

If you've ever been hit with catastrophic news you can relate. If you haven't just know it was the most painful, overwhelming, heartbreaking time in my life. 

Cue Gloria Gaynor!

After picking up the pieces I decided I HAD to succeed by making money online. It was the only way to stay home with my baby AND provide for her. 

So I ditched my career background in banking, insurance, and management (I know, I know, don't hate me--I hated banking too), forgot about working 75+ hours a week managing other people's restaurants, and I started taking side hustle gigs and blogging.

It's easy they said. Anyone can make money blogging they said.

It was NOT easy.

I knew absolutely zero when I decided I would become a blogger. 

I embarked on a twisty-turny journey to learn how to be the best blogger I could be (and probably similar to the journey that led you here).

I read hundreds of blogs, dozens of books, and took a ton of courses. (Have I mentioned I'm a recovering type A.)

Some of that advice was great, much of it was outdated, and a few bits were downright disastrous!

But I figured it out.

I honed my life long passion for all things wellness related and created a business from my second website (in the health and wellness niche). As a result I was able to help people live better lives, and that has been LIFE CHANGING for me. 

As a side hustle I started helping other bloggers with different projects. Mostly I worked with bloggers creating their lead magnets, putting together their sales funnels (because the tech can be crazy complicated), and growing their Pinterest accounts. Basically, the very same things I had to master to grow my own blog based business. And the things I will be sharing with you...if you stick around. 

I've learned two important things on the road to business success, STRATEGY + HUSTLE = SUCCESS, and anyone can be successful with the RIGHT strategy. 

If you are here then know that the world is ready for YOU, because no one can do what you do the way YOU do it. 

After three blogs, hundreds of online projects, and having taken premium courses from amazing blogging superstars like Amy Porterfield, Melyssa Griffin, Mariah Coz, & Bushra Azhar, I'm here to share what has worked and isn't working, and help YOU strategize so you can grow your own money making blog

Bottom line, I want YOU to live the life you deserve.

I want families to have financial freedom.

I want moms who can afford stay home with their kids, and dads who aren't on the verge of a heart attack trying to make ends meet. 

And strategic blogging can do that for you. 

I'm here to help YOU, because once upon a time when the world was pretty dark and lonely someone helped me. 

So if you are ready to take action, work hard, and hustle, then let's do this!
