Back in 2011, I was an engineer working as a legal secretary in Orlando, Florida for $8 per hour, 40 hours per week. Although I had an engineering degree (+ interns license + 3 years of professional experience), I was unable to find another job in the field. Up until this point, I’d followed every rule and cleared every obstacle with respect to my engineering career and its advancement. It’s not like I wasn’t looking for a job in tech. I went home from work every -single -night and put in applications for job postings I saw in my field (environmental engineering).

My life experience felt completely oppressive

During Christmas holiday from that legal job, back in 2011, I found myself putting in CVs from a dingy old hostel in La Paz, Bolivia. It was there that I put 2-and-2 together and realized the two facts most central to my life at that time:

I’d submitted about 600 CVs in the 4 months prior, and hadn’t landed 1 job.

I was making more money per day doing nothing in Bolivia than I did working 40 hours per week in the States (hourly wages were $8, but I had 2 renters in my house that were also providing some income).

So, that was it… Christmas Day 2011 in La Paz, Bolivia – I decided, once and for all, that I would do whatever it takes to earn a living online whilst enjoying my favorite pastime – world travel.

Fast forward 2 years spent working as a spatial data scientist whilst building my side hustle.

When I quit my day job, I also declined an interview with Facebook Menlo Park. Instead I moved to Thailand and lived off of $600 per month (where I boot-strapped my business Data-Mania, LLC almost from scratch). This business has blossomed into a multiple 6-figure earner for me.
At that time, I hadn’t an inkling of an idea that the work I did through Data-Mania, LLC would go on to touch and transform the lives of hundreds of thousands of data professionals around the world.
Every time I consider:
…our $60,000 week or
…that $10,000/hour speaking gig with an international business class trip to Istanbul
Each time I think about:
…our thriving community of more than 650,000 brilliant data professionals
…the 1.3 Million (and growing…) data professionals I’ve been blessed to train and educate
…the amazing people I’ve brought in to support the business along with me
…how incredible it is to work 100% online from my luxury villa on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand
I get completely overwhelmed with gratitude that I made the choice to discard the status quo and build an online data business of my very own.

cred
It’d be easy to assume that a woman working online from an exotic island villa in the Gulf of Thailand may not have her crap together.
Oh contraire, I paid some SERIOUS dues to get where I am today. I spent 2 years pursuing a Chemistry degree at The University of Texas – Austin, before transferring to University of Central Florida to complete an engineering degree. I also spent 4 years working as an engineer just to qualify to sit for my Professional Engineering exam. I passed that exam on my first try and I maintain my PE license to this day. And, I’ve got some serious digital marketing chops, as evidenced by the community of 650,000 data professionals that I’ve grown on LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter.
