HEY THERE, I’M RUTH! AND I’D REALLY LOVE TO BE YOUR FAIRY BLOG-MAMA….
Since launching my first blog, Living Well Spending Less, in 2010, my business has grown into a multi-million dollar company. I’ve become the New York Times bestselling author of 6 books, launched a top-rated podcast, and even given a TED talk.
But it didn’t start out that way!
When I first started, I struggled hard trying to figure it all out. There were SO many times I felt like quitting, and I can’t even tell you how often I secretly wished for some magical fairy blog-mama to share all her secrets of success. Sadly, she never appeared, but I swore to myself that if I ever did figure out the secret to blogging, I’d be that fairy blog-mama to someone else!
And that’s exactly what Elite Blog Academy is all about.
No, it’s not a magic wand, but it IS probably the next best thing: a clearly laid out, step-by-step guide that will show you, in crystal clear detail, exactly what to do.
It’s the secret blueprint for success you’ve been waiting for.
I DOUBLED MY TRAFFIC
“Since 2014, I’ve gone through the course three times. Every single time, I learn something new. Ruth’s teaching has proven correct through the years. Her wisdom isn’t based on the latest algorithm or fad but tried and true methods that withstand the test of time. Even after the first few lessons, I doubled the traffic on my blog. Since enrolling, my blog is more focused, more beautiful and more useful to my readers. Thank you, Ruth!” — Elaine Mingus, Radical Christian Woman
FROM A TEACHER WHO’S BEEN THERE
Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed by the amount of expert advice available and wished someone could just show you, step by step, exactly what it takes to grow a successful, profitable online business?
Believe me, I get it. I have totally been there, and I know exactly how it feels.
JUST A STAY-AT-HOME MOM OF TWO TODDLERS
When I first started blogging, I was completely clueless. I was a stay-at-home mom of two little girls, and truth be told, I was going a little bit stir-crazy. I decided to start a blog about trying to live well on a budget, which was something I was really struggling with. The purpose of the blog at first was simply to hold myself accountable—I never dreamed that people would actually read it.
But almost right away, I discovered that there was this whole other world of blogs and bloggers and blogging, and that people were actually making money online. I knew I had found my people, and I wanted to be a part of it, and I soon set a goal to make enough money blogging that my husband could quit his job, even though it seemed completely crazy.
NOT AN EXPERT IN ANYTHING
At first it was hard and completely overwhelming to find my voice, and even to just figure out what to write about. Add to that the logistics of trying to grow an audience and somehow get paid for my time, and I was struggling. After all, I didn’t feel like I really had anything original to say. I was just a mom of two little girls. I certainly wasn’t an expert in anything, (much less saving money!).
I saw all these bloggers around me who had been doing it for so much longer. From the outside, it seemed like they knew exactly what they were doing. It felt like I was so far behind them that I’d never “catch up,” while offline none of my real-life friends understood either. Even my husband questioned what in the world I was doing. Truth be told,
I think he thought I was completely nuts!
DETERMINED TO FIND MY WAY
But I knew that if other people were making money online, then it was actually possible, and that I could do it too. And so, despite the fact that I didn’t really know what I was doing, I was determined to make it work. I began learning everything I could about growing my traffic and creating a successful blog, and I started to gain a little more confidence as my efforts slowly began to pay off.
In a moment of frustration, I also swore to myself that if I could figure out how it’s done, I would try to help as many people as I could.
MAKING AN IMPACT
Ten years later, my business reaches more than a million subscribers and generates a 7-figure income. But more importantly, my message is resonating with people and it’s helping them live a better life. So now, the more I share, the more impact I’m able to have.
Every day I receive emails from readers whose lives have been impacted by words I’ve shared, and that’s pretty amazing.
NOT THE END OF THE STORY
But this story doesn’t stop with me, because I want the same for you. No matter what your message is, I will show you how to reach your tribe and effortlessly draw them in. I’ll show you how to turn that loyal following into a full-time income and I’ll show you how you can do it by focusing on a few key activities that will make all the difference. This is the exact plan I continue to follow to this day. And it is the plan I lay out in detail at Elite Blog Academy.
NOT JUST FOR BEGINNERS
“I was blogging for 6 years before I started EBA, and I went through every single module and got something from all of them, even the ones where I thought I knew a lot about that specific topic. It is a great guide for anyone who wants to go from being just a blogger to having a blogging business.”
— Jasmine Watts, Miss Millennia Magazine
