Every month, I create a themed weekly challenge to my members. It is the best way for them to put into action what they are learning from my coaching. If they participate in each week, they get entered into a monthly giveaway that gives them access to great prizes. As a bonus to the prizes they receive, they get to have an interview with me that I share on all my social media profiles as well as on this blog. This gives them a chance to discuss their entrepreneurial journey as well as promote their offers.

Here's November's winner, Karyn Takahashi, creator of

From Tech Newbie to Email Marketing Passionpreneur: Celebrating Karyn Takahashi’s Journey Of Turning Passions Into Profit

As we wrapped up our exciting November challenge on email marketing, I was absolutely thrilled to pieces to hand over the winning prize to Karyn. Her unwavering commitment to learning new skills, tools and strategies, that were foreign to her just a few short months ago, is incredibly inspiring.

I am now super excited to share with you an extraordinary story of determination, growth, and success. In November, I put my members to the test with a four-week email marketing challenge, starting with brainstorming newsletter topics, then, drafting newsletters with the help of ChatGPT, followed by segmenting audiences, and finally, sending out those newsletters to the world.

And guess what? The results were nothing short of amazing!

Karyn's journey is a testament to what anyone can achieve with the right mindset and support. Four months ago, Karyn was just beginning to explore the digital world. Fast forward to today, and she has developed a stunning blog at Living with an Ostomy, a project driven by passion and extremely close to her heart. How did she do it? Let's dive in!

A Leap of Digital Mastery

Karyn's transformation from tech newbie to email marketing passionpreneur is incredibly inspiring. During the challenge, she not only grasped the technical aspects of email marketing but also infused her newsletters with personal touch and relevance. Her approach to content curation, audience engagement, and feedback implementation is a perfect example of the effectiveness of our program's coaching and support.

P2P's Program Role in Karyn's Journey

As her mentor and coach, I was there to guide her through the maze of email marketing tools and strategies and through our weekly group coaching sessions,thea vast library of resources available, and our unique 1:1 chat feature that acts like a personal mentorship line, I was able to ensure that she had the support she needed to succeed. Whenever she got stuck during the challenge, she was able to reach out to me and together, we were able to push her forward. Having instant access to a coach is definitely a plus when time is of essence.

Karyn's Interview - A Must-Watch

I had the pleasure of interviewing Karyn about her journey, and it's a story filled with valuable insights on her entrepreneurial journey. We discuss what defines an entrepreneur, how she got started as one, her journey as a fashion designer in Tokyo and how she decided to start a blog called "Livingwithastoma" and start her online entrepreneurial journey with the help of our P2P membership program. The interview is fascinating.
