EP (29) Elise Darma: Using her social media skills to design a life of travel and location freedom

I'm sure a lot of us dream about having location freedom and traveling the world?!

But dreaming is the easy part. Actually making that dream a reality is more challenging then you think.

Elise got the travel bug when she was young. It was actually on a group tour trip with Contiki tours - funny enough. And it was the same company her parents met through while on a trip of their own as young adults. (the world works in mysterious ways)

But no one in her family really got the travel bug like she did.

But she spent a few years plugging away at various jobs, dreaming of the day she would step out on her own and create her 'ideal' life. That reality came pretty fast after a friend of hers reached out in search of a social media 'guru' would could help him with his business and build his company's following.

She didn't hesitate. She told him she'd be willing to help him.

The rest as they say, is history.

Elise now spends most of her days traveling around the world, meeting with clients (via Skype and online platforms), managing her own team and exploring different surroundings. She's amassed quite the following of her own through social media, as well and we discuss just how she did it.

If you're looking for some help to get your own business and idea off the ground, Elise is your gal. She works one-on-one with clients -both entrepreneurs running businesses and solopreneurs- to help them launch their own social media strategy or business. She's also in the works of creating her own online course.

So stay tuned!! It's going to be amazing.
