So they enjoy more success, more freedom and fuel a life they love (even if they hate sales!). "I took a deep breath and set out to fulfil my dream of freedom by starting my own business. And in spite of having never owned a business before, I built a fantastic travel & tourism business that has now hosted over 1000 visitors right here in this magical northwest corner of Ireland. This experience was the foundation upon which I built my powerful business – from the ground up. My dreams are now my reality – I have evolved from earning zero to earning over 40k a month – in less than 3 years in business. And even better, today I help other entrepreneurs and small business owners to fulfil their dreams and create their own profoundly profitable business".
