Amy had an established career as a travel agent in London, UK. She decided she’d had enough of the corporate rat race and knew in her heart there had to be a better way. Having joined SFM, 18 months on, Amy has a new lease on life - growing her own Internet business and spending as much time time as she likes with her loved ones. She says she now enjoys “generally doing exactly what I want to do - when I want, where I want and how I want.” Currently, Amy has packed her bags to escape the grey English weather and is now running her digital lifestyle business in Australia.
Ilan was once an investment banker, which meant long, stressful hours away from home. What he wanted most was a lifestyle that gave him the freedom to spend every day watching his beautiful children grow up. He explains: “Thanks to my mentors, thanks to the SFM Community, I’ve been able to build that kind of lifestyle for myself and then train thousands of others to do the same for themselves. So the question you really have to ask is not ‘What is a Digital Lifestyle?’, but ‘What would be the lifestyle that I want to create for myself, what would be the freedom that I want to fight to achieve - and then go and educate yourself around how to do that.” As Ilan also says, freedom means different things to different people, but what matters is that YOU get to choose.
For many years, married couple Greg and Fiona led extremely busy lives working really hard in London - Greg was a Project Manager, Fiona a Chartered Accountant. They realised that they’d become stressed out and far from fulfilled, so they decided to take a leap of faith and quit their jobs: We love to travel,... We wanted a business where we could do what we like... and be passionate about what we’re doing... I’m now 49 and Greg is coming up to 51 - we’ve reinvented, re-skilled and re-educated ourselves... Now we can run our lifestyle around our business and not the other way around.” Greg and Fiona are, but you can be sure they’re in a gorgeous, sunny part of the world as they continue to run their affiliate marketing business.
