About April

Welcome to my blog!

As someone who has always loved creativity and adventure, I felt trapped in a mundane lifestyle my entire childhood being raised on a farm in Kansas for 16 years. Upon graduation high school, I was confused about what I should do to create the spontaneous lifestyle I had always wished for. I studied graphic design at the local community college for a year, but then dropped out after a year because I got bored and restless. Then I ended up working low-paying jobs (when I wasn’t unemployed or homeless) for the first 10 years of my adult life. So, I turned to the internet believing there HAD to be a way to earn money online.


Struggle of the Decade

I spent nearly 10 years online trying dozens of ways to earn money from home. That became my #1 priority… to earn money from home so that I didn’t have to work anymore shitty jobs (gas stations, fast food, etc.). I believed a lot of so-called “gurus” online and wasted money on stupid programs and systems that I regretted. Fortunately, I didn’t have much money to spend, so I wasn’t scammed as much as some people. Nonetheless, I wasted years desperately finding online jobs and methods of earning money. As time passed, I grew more depressed. I was sick and tired of living in poverty!


Transition Into Virtual Assistant Work

By 2015, I could not do the whole “suck it up at your meaningless job because of the money” thing anymore. I found an appointment setting job (part-time) on Craigslist and then a few months later found some other clients who needed an appointment setter. I transitioned out of my average job of three years and started working from home as a virtual assistant for several business owners. Over the next couple years, I was able to rebuild my credit, grow my savings, and even purchase my first home in 2018.


Passive Income Quest

Although I was working at home for very accommodating clients and earning enough money to cover all my expenses and even save, I really wanted to start earning passive income and have the financial freedom I’d always dreamed of. I didn’t want to keep trading hours for pay as a virtual assistant, so I went back online and researched passive income opportunities yet AGAIN.

Over a period of several months, I did a ton of research and decided to invest in myself, as well. I read a lot of books about wealth including “The Millionaire Fast Lane” by M.J. DeMarco and joined Dr. Joe Vitale’s Awakened Millionaire Academy. I started looking within myself and decided to begin taking responsibility for everything in my life, including my lack of passive income and real financial freedom.

I decided to invest in my online business education, as well, and learned step-by-step how to create a profitable online website. Now I am 100% dedicated to my online success and continue to build my businesses. I am no longer terrified in investing money into my online education and tools to grow my businesses, like I was for many years.


I Am Here For You

In this blog you will find all my personal experiences with my online marketing, blogging, and journey to a fulfilling, free-spirited lifestyle.

I don’t want you to think for a minute that this is going to be easy or quick, because it’s not. It sure wasn’t for me, and anyone who said it is, probably just wants to sell you a program, system, or product. Anything of value in life comes at a price, including your financial freedom.

All the products and services you see on my site I have thoroughly researched and truly recommend.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.


All the best,

April Dowling

  1. Hi April,
    I found your blog on LeadsLeap and
    can say it is interesting. I would like to ask you.
    What kind of paid advertising does work for you?
    If you use paid advertising more than free.

    1. Thanks for reaching out… I experiment with both paid and free. I do prefer free traffic through content creation like my blog posts and videos.
