Hello and welcome to my blog!
I’m Vasco Lourenço and I created this blog to provide you with valuable information on how you can start your online freedom adventure.
While I’m by no means perfect (nor a “guru”), I believe I can convey the message pretty well, and that’s all that matters.
They say that the best way to learn is to teach, so I started this blog as a way of sharing what I know and what I educate myself with.
Redefine your concepts
Since this blog is about blogging, online business, and software, you might think that my academic background is related to marketing or some sort of management work.
Well, it’s not.
While I do have personal experience on blogging and the online world (primarily from creating several “failed” blogs in the past, and from a lot of research), I’ve worked as a sound engineer in the Portuguese version of many theatrical animated featured films by DreamWorks, Sony, Warner Bros., and others (having lots of laughing moments), and also as a musician.
Notice that I didn’t say “I am a sound engineer” nor “I am a musician”. Since the two most powerful words you can say are “I am”, whatever you put after them determines what you are and shapes your reality, so I prefer not to be bound to any form of definition.
Just because I’ve studied and worked in some field of knowledge, it doesn’t mean I’ll spend the rest of my life doing it.
The internet has opened many doors to us, and therefore the old paradigm of the mindless 9 to 5 job for life is becoming obsolete. And it’s never too late to learn new skills if you’re willing to do what it takes to have the lifestyle you dream about.
And that’s what I want to show you with my blog. You too can change your reality.
The only thing you need to be successful is your own vision and motivation. All other aspects come each day as you learn. The internet is packed with lots of information: you just have to research, ascertain the right information, and experiment, experiment, experiment.
So, why write about starting a blog when you could write about music or sound, you might ask?
Well, for some years now, I’ve been interested in pursuing my freedom from the traditional 9 to 5 job, turning myself into what the online world presented me with. Although I’m passionate about music and vibration, my intent with this blog is to show others the possibilities that exist today that can help us get out of the matrix and make money online while also enjoying the freedom that derives from that.
I believe everyone yearns to break free from the slavering chains of the economically dependent work. But if we can have the freedom to work from home, or anywhere else, that’s a start.
Where do I start?
No matter how passionate we are about a topic, if we want to make a living from it, we have to find ways of monetizing it, and I’m here to inspire you (and myself at the same time) to start your own online adventure.
To begin with, why don’t you start your own blog?
I hope all the information shared here becomes valuable to anyone that comes across it.
All the best to your online adventures!
