Welcome, You Creative Unicorn!

You want to create a profitable online business

without going totally INSANE?
Well guess what?! You've come to the right place. ☺️
THIS COLORFUL CORNER OF THE INTERNET IS FOR YOU IF
YOU WANT TO BUILD A MEANINGFUL ONLINE BUSINESS BUT YOU'RE
FEELING COMPLETELY CLUELESS.
Because I used to be there, too.
Even though I had started and ran a successful photography business full-time for
many years, the whole "ONLINE" business thing
was completely different.
And when I finally “got serious” about transitioning from my photography business to my online business ...
I was scared sh*tless.
I had to learn about ALL the things! Email lists, opt-ins, sales funnels, landing pages, leadboxes ...
But even though I was scared sh*tless ...
I was also extremely excited and determined to make
it work NO. MATTER. WHAT.
AND IN LESS THAN 12 MONTHS,
I HAD REPLACED MY INCOME
WITH MY NEW ONLINE BUSINESS.
So if THIS introverted, technophobic
gal can figure out the whole "online business" thing,
then YOU can too.
And I'm here to help make it all as SIMPLE and FUN as possible!
(Because if you're not even having fun ... then why bother?)
I'm here to give you the steps and strategies that’ll help you create an online business that runs on passive income from your digital products so that you can have a lifestyle with way more FREEDOM.
Freedom to create.
Freedom to serve others.
Freedom in your schedule.
Freedom in your location.
Freedom in your finances.
And I want to save you the YEARS worth of time, effort and struggle
that I spent on learning how to do everything so that you can turn your dream
into a profitable reality a QUICKLY as possible!
Sound good? Eeeeeeexcellent! Bwahhhh hahaha!

Because I believe that life, learning and business should be super fun, dag nabbit!!!!
(I also get excited a lot.)
I'm the founder of Wonderlass, a colorful little corner of the internet that's
dedicated to helping you start and grow a profitable online business that you love so that

SO HOW THE HECK DID HELPING CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS
KICK BUTT ONLINE BECOME MY THING?
Well … the day that I turned 16 and got my first job (as a waitress at Steak'N'Shake!) I vowed that one day,
I would be my own boss and start my own business. Why? Because I remember having a near panic attack when I realized that some random person was now in control of my schedule.
And I was simply too much of a control freak to let someone else be in charge of my schedule! :P (Yep, it's true.)
So 3 months after graduating from college, I decided to first go after my dreams of being an actress and moved from my home in Missouri out to Hollywood (which was cray-zay!) where I lived for 5 years.
(True story, I cried my eyes out in sheer panic the very first time that I had to drive on the freeway! Yes,
it was eight lanes worth of sheer terror.)
While I was living in Hollywood doing the acting thing, I started my first blog in 2006 as a way to keep in touch with family and friends. I also soon realized that living in Los Angeles was crazy expensive and that I needed a way to make some extra money (in addition to the two jobs I was already working!)
I decided that NOW was the perfect time to start a business!
I had been passionate about planning parties and weddings growing up, so I decided to get certified as a bonafied wedding planner and in 2008, I got my very first business website up (it looked horrible, by the way)
and I was officially in business!
After months of being an intern for a local wedding planner and spending countless hours getting my business ready I finally planned my very first wedding for a client and ...
I hated it.
Welp, back to the ol' drawing board!
Then in 2009 I got married. (No longer married, by the way!) But at my wedding, I couldn't help but notice how much fun my two wedding photographers were having! Plus, I loved the images that they shot.
And then a couple weeks after my wedding it hit me: I would start my own wedding photography business! I mean I loved weddings (obviously), and I had always been obsessed with taking photos and scrapbooking! It felt like the perfect fit.
I ended up moving back to Missouri (Kansas City, to be exact!) at the beginning of 2010
and I hit the ground running! It was time to make shiz happen.
I immediately bought my first "real" camera, started my website (my business was called Allison Wonderland Photographie) and began booking wedding clients right off the bat (even though all I had to show in my portfolio were random personal photos!)
I went full-time right out of the gate and I freak’in loved it.
Having a job that I loved totally changed the quality of my life FOR THE BETTER.
But after a few years of running my wedding photography business, I realized that a.) I had fallen
in love with the business side of things, b.) People were always asking me business-related questions and c.) I wanted everyone to experience the joy of having a job that they absolutely loved!
So in 2015, I decided to start transitioning out of my wedding photography business and into creating an online business where I could focus on helping others do what they love.
I took down the personal blog that I had been blogging on for the past 9 years and gave it a complete overhaul! I spent countless hours and late nights working at my computer (much to the dismay of my kitty Mr. Purrie, who wasn't getting NEARLY enough attention!)
And a few months later, 'Wonderlass' was officially born!
However, starting an online business wasn't easy.
I had to consistently push through many meltdown moments, overwhelm, feelings of doubt, fear of failing,
projects that “flopped” and so much more.
But due to my refusal to give up, I made it work.
And today my online business allows me to fulfill my creativity, help thousands of
people and gives me the freedom to live the type of lifestyle that I want.
I officially shot my very last wedding in 2016 and now spend my time building a community of entrepreneurs,
creating value-filled podcast episodes, workshops and online courses to help YOU do the same.
