Description

**COVID-19 UPDATE**

Our global economy will be deeply affected by the pandemic we are currently experiencing and no one knows exactly how bad it will be until the virus stops...

NOW is the time to LEARN, PREPARE YOURSELF and set up additional streams of income.

The entire industry is changing..

It's time think differently and contemplate what the changing world will need.

Design jobs are being threatened, more businesses will start to see design as a luxury. This is a fact.

Now is the time to create resources, courses and other digital goods that will pay our bills.

Take control of your life. This course can help you get there.

**

4 years ago I started selling digital products and had no idea if it could support me full-time but with a super-strong desire and a bunch of trial-and-error, I was able to find a way to support myself selling graphics online! I honestly couldn't believe it but within 6 months I stopped all freelance work!

My products have been featured in the Top 100 products on Creative Market year-after-year and have earned me well over $350K.

Starting a passive-income design business has been one of the best decisions of my life!

If you're tired of dealing with inconsistent freelance income, client deadlines and changes... Or if you're just over sitting behind the computer all day building someone else's dreams, I want you to know that there is another way to earn an income as a Graphic Designer!

Imagine waking up in the morning (at whatever time you want) inspired to create your next project... 

Imagine living an incredibly inspiring life of freedom, working when you want, designing what you love and making money in your sleep (the best part)! Imagine spending more time with your friends and family, taking care of your body (whaat?!) and taking trips whenever you want because you no longer have a schedule!

It is possible!

Testimonials


“I more than doubled my passive income since taking the course! I just broke $700 on Creative Market last month!”

– Diane Pascual, Gypsy Goddess


“Angelina is incredibly inspiring, I almost want to cry. I've been struggling with how to focus my energy into my creations and ideas, that it has ultimately left me stuck on what to actually do and start with. I absolutely love that she includes overall well-being into creating your vision because I believe it's something that is often overlooked but is actually crucial to being a creator. It's been something I've discounted for too long, personally, and I'm ready to be pulled out of the rut I fell into, and step into a new light where I can still be my passionate self with success alongside me. Angelina helped me believe it was all the more possible!”

– Sheila Fernandez


“I love this course! Clear, complete and with great tips and tricks with the added advantage of being motivated to take the step into creating more designs. Definitive thumbs up from me!”

– Bryan Veldkamp


“Wow! This is just what I needed. It's not just about the how-to, but about the mindset and approach that will get you there sustainably. Such wisdom from Angelina's own experience is all throughout this course. I love her approach, her attitude and her energy. She's really easy to listen to. I'm quite auditorially sensitive and this is important to me and definitely influences how much, and how easily I'm able to learn from a course. I'm hoping Angelina produces more courses, she's such an excellent teacher, with values and a philosophy that really aligns with my own.”

–  Donna Miller


“Before I started this video series, I felt overwhelmed about the process of passive income. The time and effort Angelina has put into making a beautifully designed and in-depth course has been inspiring for me. She really does have a passion for sharing her knowledge with others, and her encouraging words were so helpful to keep me engaged til the end.”

–  Steph Jackson


“I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E! I felt both inspired and empowered after watching only the first 2-3 sections and ended up going through the entire course within 24 hours. Yes, it was that good! If you're a designer and you clicked on this, JUST GET IT. You won't regret it! Angelina is clearly a pro and she does an amazing job at going over all the important concepts in a very positive and supportive manner. The course itself is comprehensive and very well organized and there are a bunch of resources included to help you plan your journey (downloadable pdfs, guided visualization, etc.) Thank you Angelina :) ”

– Geneviève Viel-Taschereau


“Great course with lots of useful information, insights and tips! Clear, comprehensive and beautifully designed. This course has answered many questions about building a passive income business that I've had for a long time and couldn't find clear & concise answers to anywhere else. Thank you so much!”

– Olga Khomenko


“It was a perfect match for me! i'm so glad that i took the time and watched this course. i loved every minute of it. Angelina is so passionate about her art and educating others, and she is really good at it! i was listening to a great expert with a beautiful voice, while watching an amazing presentation, which is nicely built up in a professional way and also packed with useful tips and secrets. so now i don't have to figure out everything by myself. i'd recommend her course to anyone who could use some more passive income as a graphic artist. you'll learn the proven ways to make it happen. or if you are already creating digital art, but hesitating whether to begin your online career is a good idea, you might find the inspiration for a good start right here! i'll definitely come back to different parts and build the ideas into my own business. thank you so much!”
