My Success Story ~ How I Turned my Hobby into a Business and Started Earning Money!

Hi, I’m Demi. A self trained Nail Artist. My journey is an unexpected one. I never had the ambition to be a nail artist nor I realized my interest untill some years back. Couple of years back, I saw a Nail Art video on YouTube. That created a sudden urge inside me to learn Nail Art. I had no idea whatsoever, how to do nail art, what to use, how to use and all sorts of other what and hows. So I took almost a year to learn nail art watching tutorials online.

At some point of time I felt like giving up thinking I will not be able to learn the techniques as it was taking a lot of time. Then came the words of wisdom from my husband, “Don’t give up just because it is taking time. Time will pass any way”. He might have heard it somewhere 🙂 That really encouraged me and I asked myself, how much I want to learn it. Not for any reason but just for the sake of how much I love and enjoy Nail Art. I realized It became my passion and I will put in how much ever time or effort it will take.

I continued practice following other nail artists online. Then gradually I came up with my own ideas of Nail Designs. I thought I can  too make tutorials, provide information and share my experience and techniques with those who wants to learn or feel pleasure watching nail Art. I was in the same place couple of years back! Many information and ideas already out there but I believe knowledge is never enough, doesn’t matter how much information available any one can still add their share.

We human beings always want to develop and evolve on ideas! I was wondering then how many people build website and earn money out of it! I wanted to try my luck on that. One fine day, I was searching on Google, “how to get success in online business”. I came across Wealthy Affiliate.

My journey to success started here!
