Building a Multi-Six Figure Business While Working a 9-5

If you’re like me, you spent a long time unaware that you could build a freedom business that supports your ideal life.

I’m here to tell you: you absolutely can.

And the spark that lights that flame can be completely unexpected!

My own multiple six-figure online business, One Big Happy Life, helps people find balance, build wealth, and live happy. We have an audience of hundreds of thousands, and our YouTube videos earn millions of views.

And it all started with just one hair-cutting video.

In 2013, I was two years out of law school. I’d moved to Texas with my family and started a lifestyle blog, called One Big Happy Blog. At the time, my beautiful daughter was struggling to love her natural curls. I decided that the two of us would cut off my relaxed hair so that I could grow it back in a natural style, in order to set a healthy example. 

And we posted the video to YouTube.

I forgot about that video over the next few years, while dealing with multiple job changes and moves. After the birth of my son, I wanted to spend more time with my family. As I searched for more accommodating work, my husband suggested I start a passion project.

That’s when I received my first $100 check from YouTube, for the hair-cutting video I uploaded years before.

This led to my decision to vlog as a side hustle.

Since then, I’ve grown One Big Happy Life from a $100 YouTube check to a multiple six-figure business.

While I stumbled accidentally into entrepreneurship, I want you to learn from my journey and create your own six-figure business — intentionally and thoughtfully.
