Unfortunately, I can’t promise any guarantees that you will gain XX in revenue each month or that you will pick up clients.
What I can promise, is that this course was created from my experience and uses the steps that helped me get to $16,000 months within the first year.

A lot of courses and workshops (of all categories) are created by people who claim to know what they're doing or who have barely done the service they're teaching and the bulk of their income is actually from course sales.
The opposite is true here. I've been a social media manager for 12 years. I've managed global brands and small business brands. I've cultivated communities of over one million people. And I've successfully gone from full-time corporate to full-time entrepreneur. I simply want to help women like you feel empowered to launch your own social media business. But it's more than just empowerment — I'm teaching what I've learned over the past decade-plus, and making sure that you have the necessary steps to launch your business.
I truly believe you will recoup your investment incredibly quickly when launching your business with the knowledge from the course.
At The Thriving Lotus Academy, we give you the tangible skills and steps to launch your social media marketing business. With hours of content, you’ll find the basic outline to create your business. You’ll feel empowered to take on clients and provide a valuable service to them.

After eleven years in professional sports leading social media marketing strategies for global brands, I decided it was time to be my own boss and find flexibility with my schedule. To put it simply: I was burnt out from being online 24/7.
I couldn’t find an affordable ecourse that would give me the steps to start my agency. I failed (and failed a lot) as I learned how to grow my freelancing business to $16,000 months. But I felt so alone during this process.
That’s why I created The Thriving Lotus Academy. It’s hard to take the plunge to start your business on your own, so I want to help you.
“How To Start A Social Media Business” is just the first step. Soon we will launch The Social Lounge, a resource for social media managers (both in the gig economy and working corporate jobs). In the new year, we’ll have the follow-up course to “How To Start A Social Media Business.”
I can’t wait to bring you lots of valuable information and help you feel empowered to launch your online business.
