From Cake Decorating to Financial Freedom: My Journey of Turning Passions into Passive Income Despite Being Told I'd Never Work Again

From Cake Decorating to Financial Freedom: My Journey of Turning Passions into Passive Income Despite Being Told I'd Never Work Again

Hi I'm Amanda van der Gulik and I'm excited to share with you my journey of turning my passions into passive income and achieving financial freedom, even when the doctors said I would never work again.

In 2016, I woke up from a 3-week coma as a disabled lung person, unable to work. I was devastated. I had always been an active, hardworking person and suddenly, I was faced with the reality that I would never be able to work again.

But then, I remembered something my parents had taught me when I was a kid: "It's not what life throws at you, it's how you handle it." I was determined to find a way to make money from home and live my life to the fullest.

That's when I remembered my love for cake decorating and baking. I had always loved making cakes for family and friends and had even turned my hobby into a business. I started filming my decorating skills and sharing them on my YouTube channel. To my surprise, my videos were a hit and I started making passive income from them every month!

After my coma when I was strong enough to get back on my laptop I was absolutely blown away that while I was asleep, fighting for my life in a coma, the passion passive income I had built prior was still generating passive recurring income every single month!

That's when I realized that I could turn my passions into profit. I started learning everything I could about online business, entrepreneurship, and YouTube organic marketing. I also made sure to emphasize this in my other business where I was teaching my kids about financial literacy and the importance of having multiple streams of passive income.

That was a second business I had built prior to my coma and I was still selling my courses during my coma and months of rehab. It was absolutely incredible and gave me a new mission.
