Do you want to live life on your own terms, travel the world and make money doing it?

Learn the secrets to creating a successful travel website  

from someone who earns a full-time income from her blogs. 


Too many people spend their lives wondering "What if?" 

What if I did a solo trip to Europe? 

What if I turned my awesome idea into reality?

What if I went for what I really wanted?

Stop waking up wishing you didn't have to go to the office or wishing you had more time to see the world.

It's time to take life into your own hands and do what you REALLY want to. 

How? Each year I help hundreds of people build profitable blogs -- both travel and non-travel -- and now I want to help you, too! 

*You don't have an action plan for blogging success

*You're unsure of how to optimize blog posts to rank higher in Google search

*You have great content, but don't know how to get it in front of new eyes 

*You want to learn the secret to earning a REAL salary through your blog

But first...does any of the following sound like you?

*You love the idea of blogging professionally, but have no idea where to begin

*You have a blog, but want to gain more readers

*You know the value of social media but aren't sure what to post or how to get people to care about what you're saying

*You feel lost in a sea of information and aren't sure what tasks to prioritize for blogging growth

Yes? Then let me teach you the secrets to blogging success!

So wait...I can really make money blogging?

Yes, you can! I'm not going to lie and say it's easy; but if you set yourself up for success, learn how to create a smart growth strategy and put in the work, you can absolutely succeed. 

I personally own a full-time income from my travel blogs, one that allows me to live alone in NYC, enjoy carefree nights out with friends, and take 15+ trips a year!

Myths About Blogging

*I need to be famous. When I started my blog I had absolutely no following on the internet, or anywhere else for that matter. 

*I need a lot of money to start a business. Blogging has very little overhead costs. Especially in the beginning it's more about investing time than money. In fact, you can start blogging today for $0! 

*But I don't have a business or journalism degree. You don't need a degree to start a blog. What matters here is passion and a voice.

*I'm afraid to quit my stable job to blog. So don't. I waitressed while building my blog until it made enough money that I felt comfortable leaving my serving gig. 

*I won't succeed because I'm not good at [writing/photography/technology]. When I started my blog I was possibly the least tech savvy person on Earth (for real!) Take it slow and learn as you go. While writing and photography skills help, if you have an interesting story to tell and a unique voice, these skills aren't essential.

Ready to get started?

Each year I help hundreds of budding bloggers create profitable blogs that let them quit their day jobs, travel the world, enjoy free time and work remotely. Now, I want to help you.

Kim Hanson,

How To Create A Blog That Makes Money

I really loved the Ditch the Daily Grind course, which contained extended information on branding, sponsored links, and plug-ins/widgets. I'm a visual learner so the video showing me the backend of her blogs, and the ins and outs of the plugins really helped me understand how they could enhance my blog. Thank you so much for coming to the aide of fledgling bloggers everywhere!


Emma Gibson,

Ditch The Daily Grind Video Course

Jessie offered very helpful insights as to how to build my social media presence and draw in new blog followers. The hour Skype session we had was incredibly useful and I set to work transforming my blog and establishing my social media presence right after speaking with her. I would highly recommend a Skype consultation with Jessie if you are looking to start your own travel blog -- or transform an existing one -- and you want it to make some money for you. She was super easy to understand, very informative, and most importantly, her advice has helped me with my blog tremendously!
