I’ve been in the blogosphere ever since 2011, but started making real money blogging since 2015. The way in which I make my money is by organizing workshops, working as a public speaker on the topics of marketing, blogging, and entrepreneurship, selling my ebook, working with global tourism organizations and airlines, etc.
In December 2016 I’ve decided to share the real story behind making money as a blogger and make it accessible to everyone. I teach people everything I’ve learned in the last 6 years as a blogger. I’ve been working as a Cosmopolitan Serbia Lifestyle editor for a second year now, so I have the insider’s knowledge both from the position of the blogger and being a part of a large publishing company.
WHO AM I TO TALK ABOUT IT?
I gained my knowledge in marketing, advertising, and sales since starting my career in New York City, age 21 working in Ad Sales Marketing as a VEVO intern, and in Estro Communications as a Digital Marketing intern. I attended Montclair State Business School on a full US Department of State scholarship, where I learned about consumer behavior, leadership, and business development, from leading experts in the field such as Yam Limbu, Stephen Sudovar etc. I invested all the free time I had next to school into learning both from my mentors in real life and online from Marie Forleo, Ed Dale, Frank Kern…
After that, I lived and worked for the leading tech companies in Belgrade, London, Dubai, and Cyprus. I’ve started 3 startups, raised a $30000 seed investment for one of them and since 2016, I’ve been working as a marketing consultant, public speaker, and a blogger.
