How I became a D.M
If you’d met me a few years ago, you would’ve felt sorry for me. I was making minimum wage and barely making enough money to pay rent, make my car payment, and put food on the table. When all was paid for, I would have nothing left for things that I wanted to do or things that I wanted to buy. I remember my trips to the mall and watching people shopping, spending…buying stuff, and being able to afford eating out. I remember feeling hopeless and angry. I felt that I deserved better. I’d worked so hard for my B.A, but it didn’t matter. The economy was so bad that having a B.A made little difference in the job market. A little sad and frustrated, I decided to do something different. I went online looking for a way to start a business. My search took me to a course on SEO offered by UC Davis online. I enrolled in the course and followed the lessons step by step and did everything that was asked of me. I had took the course, bought a domain name, built a website and ranked it on the first page of Google search. All in less than six months. That’s when I knew that I had what it took to start an online business. It was the beginning of my journey as an entrepreneur. From that moment on, I become a sponge for anything having to do with digital marketing, branding, writing, storytelling, copywriting and PR. Since then, I’ve taken a good amount of online courses including courses from UCLA and UCSD, and achieved certification in Content Marketing from Digital Marketer, and an editing certificate from Poynter.
