My name is Helen Blazer, and I am a teacher from the UK. I have been a teacher for 18 years, and I’ll be honest, it was getting to the point where I was really struggling being a teacher. The job isn’t what it used to be, it’s got a lot more difficult. I had made the decision that I was going to have to leave. I caught COVID at the beginning of the year, had to take a week off. And I actually had some time, and during that time, I was on the internet and I saw Sophie’s advert for her free webinar, which, for the first time ever, I actually had the opportunity to sign up for. I thought, “this is something I can do. This is something I’m interested in,” so I signed on.
Thoroughly enjoyed the webinar. It sounded like it was really something I could do and enjoy doing, which was very, very important to me, something I was passionate about. I’d actually done a degree in drama and writing, but since the degree I hadn’t done any writing, so the opportunity to be able to make that a possibility again was really exciting. The other thing about the webinar was I learned there was a whole world out there that I didn’t realize existed, different types of companies and services and an ability to make your own way in the world without relying on an employer and the nine to five, and that I was really excited about.
I’m now a writer and a publisher. I have three books published, two of them written and created by myself, and I’m working on a third. I’m very, very proud of that. I have gained good reviews online. I’m four and a half stars on Amazon, so very, very proud. I am Paperback Kindle audio books, and it’s been a really wonderful experience. The best thing about it is that I’m enjoying it, but it’s also made me so much braver. I am now looking into other avenues of passive income and exploring a whole new world, and this is the happiest I’ve been for a long time. So thank you, Sophie.
