Not so long ago the traditional career advice was – a good college degree,  in turn that would lead to a good job, a great salary and maybe a lifetime pension. Traditionally our parents held their job for years and only retiring to enjoy their pension.

While this advice might be true for many it’s certainly not true for me. Life is a series of experiences, sounds clichéd, yes, but true. Although I followed the traditional career path of college, graduate degrees, professional degrees and lots of incidental licenses in between I was still feeling like something was missing. I wanted to earn a living but I wanted to do it while having fun, being independent, travelling and learning.

I was introduced to Internet Marketing. A world of education & marketing that was unknown to me. First of all, it was unbelievable that I could feel so energized and enthused about learning again. I began to amass friends from all over the world, I had to learn how to “drive this new 21st century vehicle” and learn new words like traffic, affiliates, marketing and conversions and you know what I love it. I love to learn and I love to share.

My business is growing; I am supported and loved in a community of like minded people. I can sit on the beach at weekends and do my work, pick up my children from school or attend school events/activities without fear or threat of losing my job. I can travel with my laptop and still be connected to what I am doing. I can have a purpose and design a life that suits me.

Today, I have my own website and blog to chart my journey in this amazing world. I am a spiritual person and wanted to do share this adventure in a way that is organic and embodying the principles I believe and practice. Hence, wealthcreationvi.com. As you can expect, wealthcreation was already taken and as I was just fresh from living in the Virgin Islands I created the addition of vi to secure the name I wanted to use ~www.wealthcreationvi.com.

Most people associate wealth with material assets; like how much money you have in the bank, how much wealth you have accumulated or inherited. Wealth generally deals with everything that can be seen on the outer. Wealth creation for me is more than an external appearance. I wanted a space that not only supports financial growth, but is also aligned with spiritual ‘wealth principles’ of abundance.

wealthcreationvi.com is therefore a space where we can begin new and exciting ventures using spiritual principles to create peace, harmony and balance. It’s not about just creating money but holistic wealth so that we can live the life of our dreams.

Won’t you come with me on this journey?
