Irene Vitruk From Student to Social Media Queen

People define success differently. A big paycheck is enticing to many, while others find the allure of happiness, quality time, and freedom as the measure of success. Taking the first step is always hard but not impossible.

The story of Irene Vitruk is just inspirational. It’s one of courage and determination to chart her path. Irene is a virtual assistant who dropped from university, sacrificed a scholarship to pursue her dreams. Her story is about, overcoming barriers, taking control of your life, and finding happiness and fulfillment in what you choose to do.

Set a high bar for yourself

Some people may underachieve due to the simple reason they set easy targets for themselves. They settle for average. These people fail to reach their full potential. Others think success is a matter of luck. They move through life, hoping one day luck will be on their side. Irene advises that that one should aspire for the big things in life. Setting high targets and going over and above to be able to achieve them. Some will see mentors and coaches, others read and learn while others will practice until they meet the perfect outcome. She had seen ordinary people achieve an unimaginable level of success and realized that her dreams were within reach. Do not allow others to set your limit. Set your target, and that will play a big role in determining your level of success.

Identify what inspires you

People are motivated by different things. For Irene Vitruk, the desire to be her boss, take control of her life, and do what she loves to do best has always been her internal drive. She aspired to be free, do what she needed to do at her own time and space. Her venture into a virtual assistant job allowed her space and time to dictate her pace. The key is not to conform to other people’s ideas but to go after your inspiration.

Turning your passion into profit

Young people often have a passion for different things. Enthusiasm goes a long way in your journey to success. Passion is only the beginning. Irene Vitruk notes that one requires to invest in gaining relevant skills in their fields. Training in high-income skills like speaking, copywriting, funnel management, and closing is necessary. You will need these skills to propel your passion and turn it into a business. A good example is people who are creative in the music industry. The way of turning this passion into profit is by finding a business angle to it while still entertaining their fans.

It is important to take the first step with the information that you have and explore the journey with courage.
