From a broke immigrant and a war survivor to becoming an online course expert and running a successful online business...

I was born in Belgrade, Serbia. Life wasn't easy, but it got more problematic when we stepped into the '90s - embargo, empty grocery stores, power/water restrictions, local currency hyperinflation that lasted years. One of the world's craziest currency hyperinflations - 313 million percent - imagine buying a loaf of bread and a carton of milk in the morning if you are lucky to find it. That same amount of money had zero value in the afternoon. I don't know how we survived.

In 1999, war walked into our lives. 78 days under constant bombing by NATO - the longest 78 days of my life. 

I was emotionally broken, physically tired, and pretty messed up. 

During the war, I made a decision... If I survive, I will finish college for Fine and Applied Arts and leave the country, and I did. Graphic design diploma was my ticket out.

The life of an immigrant ...

Like most immigrants who go to a foreign country broke, I worked hard for very little money, practiced the language day in and day out, knowing things will change for the better one day if I just keep trying. I traveled too far for too long, jumping through hoops and multiple countries to get to Canada (borders were very sketchy at that time for Serbs). Giving up was not an option.

Over time, I made friends and built relationships, and I've learned that I can make money online as a graphic and web designer. This was a life-changer for me!

From a designer to a coach and a course creator expert ...

Over the years, I became known to be a tech geek, happy to share knowledge with others, and as I created my first online course on branding in 2018, people started asking me to teach them how I did it.

Becoming a coach for course creators fell into my lap. I never planned on becoming one or building a business around it. But, here we are. It really feels right, like I was meant to do this all along.

There's something extraordinary about being of service to others, sharing knowledge you have, helping people build their businesses, and teaching them how to package what they already know into online courses.

Seeing them have success is everything!

Building a life and business where you are free to work whenever and from wherever was not easy, but it was so worth it.

I know you have what it takes to build a profitable online course business...

But, I also know that you feel overwhelmed thinking about starting and growing your ideas into a profitable online course business because you don't know how to do it right the first time. 

With a little bit of guidance and using a proven system, you can tap into the online education industry's riches worth over 3 billion dollars. 

I can help you do that because I teach what I and my clients and students have been doing for years. 

If 2020 has taught us anything, online education is here to stay, and there has truly never been a better time to get in on the action and help the people who are desperately searching for a solution you have. 

Every bit of effort you invest now will pay off 100 times over in the future.
