Today I help people to thrive by showing them how to build an online business, however if you would have showed me a glimpse of my current life 10 years ago, I wouldn’t have believed you. I couldn’t be more grateful for where I am today.
So who am I and what’s my story? Let me share it with you right here. My name is Sofie Sabina and I was born in a very small town in the countryside of Sweden. I was very curious of the life “out there” from an early age and I dreamt of travelling and seeing what was beyond the borders of my hometown. My father inspired me to start studying Spanish and I will never forget what he told me:
“Languages are the key to the world”
After college most people went straight to pursue a degree at University and I went to get a shitty job to save up for what I thought was the real school of life – travelling. After some time I had the backpack ready and the world was at my feet.
I spent years travelling. Sometimes I would come back to my dear home town to get and simple bar job and save up some more money. I loved life on the road and it taught me so many valuable life lessons. I wouldn’t be the same Sofie without it. After some years I did feel ready to go back to school. Being a backpacker had given me perspectives and helped me realise what I wanted to work with.
So I moved back to Sweden and started studying a degree in Peace & Development Studies. I was determined to create some real positive social impact in this world. 3 years passed quickly and I graduated feeling inspired about what I had learnt, but it was all too theoretical. I remember thinking:
“I’m not ready for work life at all, what am I suppose to do with this?!”
Many of my classmates went to study masters and I just felt like I needed some real life experience. So what did I do? I went travelling again. But this time around, the travels were shorter and I came home feeling a bit lost and unsure of my future. I went back to my old job at Toys “r” us feeling kinda useless. Months passed and I was feeling so out of place and unable to understand what I wanted to do with my life. Until one day when a magical link appeared on my Facebook feed. It was an application for program in Social Innovation Management in São Paulo, Brazil. It was a post-graduate course that focused on practical and real life learning. And I got excited for my future for the first time in a long time.
My life took a turn and I moved to Brazil two months from the day I saw that application link. And I had an amazing year, I felt inspired, made so many new friends and got involved in the social impact field. I felt like I had found a place that could be my new home. However, the good times passed quickly, I got my diploma and my visa was up.
I needed to go home to Sweden but 5 months later I managed to return with a new visa to study Portuguese. I simply loved Brazil and as I was improving my Portuguese I started working with my own environmental project that had to do with food waste. It turned out to be very challenging to get it on its feet and make it financially lucrative.
At the time I was also starting to feel a bit frustrated with my financial situation. I was making some money from an online customer service job, but it wasn’t that much. I was one of those people that wouldn’t find money important. I used to think:
“Money doesn’t make you happy, I just need enough to get by”
But I had started to view this differently. I was educating myself and read books about success habits and I realised that I had been programmed to feel this way about money. They were not my own thoughts. Sure, money itself maybe wouldn’t make me happy, but it would allow me to meet my family more often. And that I knew for a fact would make me the happiest in the world. I had chosen to live in Brazil, the country that I love some deeply but I still wanted to be close to my family. I wanted to have both! The “I just need enough to get by” was a useless limiting belief that I got rid of. I now dreamt of wealth and abundance in all aspects of my life. I wanted to be financially free, to have the freedom to choose whatever I wanted.
I quickly realised that my environmental work wouldn’t make me reach those goals, at least not within the next few years. I turned to the internet and after some days of heavy research a new idea came to me – I could run an online business. It would allow me to work from anywhere in the world and at any time of the day, as long as I had my laptop and wifi. Plus I got to be my own boss. It was simply perfect!
And today this is exactly what I do. I passionately run an online business helping others do the same. My bank account is growing as I’m getting closer to becoming financially free every day. I have more time to spend with the people I love, and I no longer feel worried about my future. I have taken back control of my own happiness and wealth.
