I’m Jodie Minto. Like every woman I’ve ever met, I wear a lot of hats and it’s not always easy to swap one out for the other. But that got me thinking, why should you have to be just one thing at a time? A great, fulfilling life should allow you to be all that you are — and all at the same time (if you want to).
I’m a natural-born entrepreneur, and I started my own business when I was 19 years old.
I never wanted to do anything else but work for myself and age (or life experience!) wasn’t about to stop me. I ran that company for almost five years before starting my family.
That was back in the ‘Dark Ages’ before social media, and things have changed ALOT since then. What used to take hours of phone calls and days of pounding the pavement is now done with a few clicks of a keyboard. It’s now easier than ever to launch and run your own business – even when still working a 9 to 5.
Fast forward a few years later, I was a new Mum and Wife and my husband was offered a job opportunity in Dubai!. Recently married, with an 18-month old so, we took a deep breath and went for it. We packed up all our portable possessions and moved o thousands of miles away to a place we’d never even visited!
I also had a very special carry-on item. Our soon-to-be-born daughter, in my ever-expanding belly!
Life as an expat was a complete rollercoaster of outrageous culture shock and beautiful experiences. Though life in a completely new place takes time to adjust to, we are grateful for the opportunities it’s given us. For example, our kids have visited more than 20 countries so far and our daughter was born in the Middle East. A great conversation starter, if there ever was one!
When my daughter was two years old, I was offered a full time corporate job in Dubai. It seemed like the right time to re-enter the working world after years of full-time motherhood.
Employment opportunities for expat spouses are few and far between. While I’m grateful for the money the job provided, I was burnt out on being a corporate slave (er, executive assistant) after just two years. It’s funny how you become stuck in a rut and keep promising yourself “just one more month” before you hand in your notice. Before you know it, five years have gone by, and you are still stuck in a job that brings you no joy.
I ended up spending over five years in a job that brought me no joy. Yet, I used the extra money to launch iland co, my online fashion business. I had business in my blood and was desperate to make my business profitable enough to allow me to never work a 9 – 5 again! I was finally backing myself and following my dreams and it felt great!
My journey as founder and C.E.O. of iland co has been an incredible learning experience.
With the knowledge and experience I acquired building iland co, I realized that I could help others too. I want others to enjoy the same financial freedom and flexible lifestyles that I now have.
