The ‘Accidental Funnel’ Story

Make More Time for Life

I quit the corporate career I loved because I couldn't manage career + side-business...
My content is dedicated to help 'ultra-busy' people like you create a full time or side business on your own terms.

Hey there friend,

Back when I was styling photoshoots (I bet you didn’t even know I did that?! ​)…

I accidentally created a ‘funnel’

Same old story…I wanted to sell more styling kits but there are just so many ‘buy my stuff’ posts and emails one can send, am I right?

So I put my thinking cap on…What is one thing people need to know or believe before they purchase my styling kits?!

[insert a really LOOONG time ? here]

One day it hit me! It was right in my face… I was getting a lot of requests for STYLING TIPS!

It didn’t even occur to me because as the ‘expert’ I just don’t have that same problem, but it was right there. So I created 3 styling videos and put them on YouTube! In the description I added a link to my shop so they could buy the kits I was using in the video.

Sales trickled in and I was hooked!

A few days later I created my first lead magnet: Photoshoot Styling Bootcamp

It was a super simple funnel…

Creatives would find me on YouTube ➡ watch the videos ➡ get my styling bootcamp for free (and get on my list) ➡ receive shop promos and a discount ➡ buy my kits ➡ book my styling service ➡ HOORAY! ?

And that is how I got started with funnels! Which by the way, I had zero idea it was in fact a funnel ?

But the biggest win was that by automating this part of my business (sending good leads to my offer) I freed up time to:

  • create new offers,
  • support my service clients better,
  • make more kits,
  • fill a coaching program in minutes just with emails to my list
  • and so much more!

Service-providers and coach friends…That’s why I’m so excited to share with you The Wealthy Coaches Summit.

Even when I didn't have money to buy lunch, I always knew I was meant for so much more...

I've lived a million lives...from borrowing school uniform to attend high school to getting into all 3 major universities in Brazil to moving to the US with a thousand bucks and a scholarship to getting a 6-fig salary right off school and an expat assignment in Denmark...
and then to quitting all of that to call my own shots and take as vacation days as I want...
My lives have been pretty amazing and I'm ready to share + show you the way (if that's what you want) in those pages.
Don't be a stranger - let me know what you think of the blog, the youtube, the courses, the agency...
I'm here for you!
