For folks chained to a desk from 9 to 5, taking carefully scheduled 15-minute breaks and alternating lunch shifts with their coworkers, the idea of earning a full-time income as an internet entrepreneur – from the comfort of their living room couch – can seem as radical as a fully-clothed Rhianna. But for 31-year-old Tiphani Montgomery, it’s reality.
Blogging at TiphaniMontgomery.com, Montgomery has built a business based on live trainings, products and services that encourage her readers to “get up and go harder,” as her site’s tagline so eloquently commands. And if anyone can inspire regular working stiffs to get their hustle on and create the career of their dreams, it’s Montgomery. With a self-professed zero-tolerance-for-BS policy, she has parlayed her straight-shooter approach to personal motivation and business coaching into a six-figure cash cow – in less than two years.
But to be clear, Montgomery doesn’t come from a rich family who supported her while she tinkered around on the Web. Nor does she have access to some top-secret, get-rich-quick manual that promised millionaire status with little sacrifice or investment. What Montgomery possesses, instead, is an incredible work ethic that propelled her from teen mom and college dropout to owner of her very own online empire.
Here, we’ve gathered a few of Montgomery’s top tips to help anyone become an internet superstar and (finally) leave that desk job for good. You’re welcome.
