There was a time when Linda Dominique Grosvenor-Holland was a single mother toiling away as an office associate for $498 every two weeks for the Health and Hospital Corporations in New York and struggling to go to school at night to earn her degree. She wrote her first book every day on her lunch hour and upon completion she made the decision to walk away from her 15-year job as a glorified clerical aide to follow her dream of becoming a published author and blogger.
When asked how she did it she’ll quickly tell you, “It was my faith in my Savior Jesus Christ. When everyone else thought I was crazy to leave a steady job, I knew He’d never fail me.” Although she left with a severance package and was allowed limited unemployment benefits, she knew they wouldn’t last forever. So, with determination and perseverance she learned everything she could about marketing, tapping into her target audience and went on to sell over 10,000 copies of her self-published book and made her first 6 figures. Now she teaches others who aspire to walk in the gifts God has given them how to do the exact same thing–DREAM BIG!
In the interim she also started a fashion blog and started hosting shoe giveaways at PrincessDominique.com. Readers flocked to the website because they said they could relate to her down to earth posts. Advertisers and shoe sponsors weren’t far behind. She did a segment on The Today Show in early February, 2011 about “Why Women Love Shoes” and her traffic to the website tripled after that. Advertising from blog owners, fashion websites and shoe brands that have been clamoring to be a part of what’s going on at PrincessDominique.com kept her income pretty steady too.
She’s known as the Grow Your Dreams Midwife™ not just because of her readiness to assist new and seasoned entrepreneurs with activating and birthing their dreams, but because she gives them a blueprint and instructs them on how to keep their dreams alive by increasing visibility, understanding social media, creating buzz about their products and businesses and grasping the principles of passive income streams through her Six Figure Your Passion™ platform. These are all things she learned as a single mom determined to see success.
She put a lot of what she learned into books. Her “Savvy” series includes The Savvy Blogger’s Manual, The Savvy Author’s Manual and The Savvy Mogul’s Manual are popular tools for learning and grow among writers and business owners as well. When asked why she does what she does she says, “My Mother instilled in us a hard work ethic. I’ve since learned that success and wealth isn’t for a select few, it’s for any and all who are willing to go after the promises of God and make up their mind that they want it. I know that the key to that is sowing and giving back. I’m here to help others position themselves to get it too. I’m willing to teach them everything I know. I believe that’s my God-given assignment.”
