If you don't know me yet, I'm Jade aka the Aussie Adventuress. My passions are travel, fashion, writing, photography, having fun, and showing others they can do the same!
Growing up in Perth, one of the most isolated cities, you can’t help but wonder about the big, wide world out there. So a few years ago I decided to leave my high flying corporate job to embark on a more exciting adventure. And that's when the Aussie Adventuress was born...
Through this blog, I hope to not only share my journey, but inspire you to chase your own dreams as well. Life is far too short for us to give up on what we truly desire and if we believe in ourselves enough we can all achieve our ideal lives.
Read on if you'd like to learn more about how I can help you create your own time and location freedom...
My love for travel started young as my parents took me to Europe at the ripe age of 2. And from that moment I believe an unquenchable desire to travel the world was born.
But as I grew up it became apparent I couldn’t rely on my parents to fund my travels forever.
So I did the normal thing. Got that high school job and saved up for my first solo trip on a gap year straight after high school.
After that trip I knew travel had to be a constant part of my life. But it was time to do what society wanted me to. Go to uni and study for a good job. So I decided to study journalism with hopes and dreams of becoming a travel writer.
It was at this time that I also landed my first 9-5 job at a bank. I got a taste of what it was like to earn good money and even though I successfully completed my degree, I had become trapped in the corporate ladder climb.
So blinded by corporate perks, a 6 figure salary, winning awards, and attending more fancy functions than I ever imagined, I convinced myself this was what I wanted out of life.
Until I was sitting on my bedroom floor crying and unable to bring myself to get dressed to face another day at work.
Because this wasn’t my dream. And after 10 years of climbing it all came crashing down. I reached a point where I just couldn’t pretend anymore. I needed to be travelling, I needed to be spending my time with people that actually mattered to me. Not pasting on a fake smile to keep my clients happy.
You see, all the corporate perks and money mean nothing when you don’t have any time to do what you love. In our consumer driven lives stress is more prevalent than ever so people turn to their phones in hope of finding a small bit of solace.
And after spending countless hours scrolling through social media (I know you've done that too...) I came across a post that made me take action.
A girl I’d been following had just quit her job and moved to Mexico. I knew THIS was what I needed to be doing so I reached out to her to find out how she had done it. And she introduced me to an entire group of people who were living these amazing lives as well.
So at that moment I had a choice. Continue living this life that wasn't fulfilling me, or embrace the knowledge she was sharing with me and learn how to create location independence for myself. Naturally, I decided to take a bet on myself. I invested in courses, became obsessed with personal development, and flew all over the world for events. And I met people that were living a way of life I never dreamed possible. And the real kicker, they were normal people, just like me!
That’s when the Aussie Adventuress was born. What started as just a hobby blog has turned into so much more. From a passion for writing and wanting to share my love of travel, was born a fully fledged online business. 6 months after starting I quit my job and took my chances at making this online thing work full time. I was terrified at the time, but it turns out this was the best decision I ever made!
Like anything in life, there's been moments where I've questioned everything. Months where I didn't know if I was going to earn enough to make ends meet. Sure, it would be much easier to go back and get a job and know I'd have a comfortable pay check coming in each week. But would that really be fulfilling me? No way! Entrepreneurship is about persistence and perseverance and the fighter in me always finds a way to make things work.
Over the years I have established a strong brand on social media which has enabled me to not only create a full time income but also secure many influencer deals.
But the most rewarding aspect has always been empowering other people to travel and quit their own jobs by creating online businesses based around their passions.
There's nothing more rewarding than receiving an excited message from a client after they've achieved some sort of breakthrough or exceeded their business expectations.
I’ve helped people quit their jobs and travel the world. I’ve helped them create their own online brands, start their own blogs, and score their first influencer deals.
And if you’ve read this far, then I'd love to do the same for you.
There is a way to stop suffering and start living a life you love. I’m proof of that.
Inside all of us is a hunger for something greater. But sadly a lot of people hide behind fear and never follow their dreams. I help people to see what’s possible and to step into their power.
The internet has opened up a whole new world of possibility and now more than ever YOU have the chance to follow your passions and leverage the internet to replace your income.
If you don’t, someone else will and you’ll just get left behind.
I’m not talking about just scraping by anymore, or trading time for money, or letting someone else dictate what you’re worth.
I’m talking about a world where you have full control.
