I’m Gemma and I’m obsessed with building online businesses.

About me...

What’s uppppp!

I’m Gemma Bonham-Carter, and I’m PUMPED that you landed here on my site.

So, who am I and what’s this all about?

Well, let me back up for a sec and start at the beginning of my story. I started a home decor and lifestyle blog in 2010 called The Sweetest Digs. My husband and I had just bought our first fixer upper home and I wanted to share our renovations and updates with friends and family. It was a total hobby project. Little did I know that I would fall head over heels in love with blogging…

After several years, I started to monetize my blog and did #allthethings to turn it into a profitable business.

After a lot of trial and error, I figured out what worked – I grew my readership, monetized with “traditional” methods like ads, sponsored posts, and affiliate marketing, and also launched an online shop selling physical products (utilizing dropshipping).

Starting that store was what REALLY helped me turn this passion project into a legit business. Suddenly I had turned this side hobby into a brand, making over $50K a year in net revenue.

Blogging became my full-time gig.

A little while later, I spoke at a few blogging conferences and was asked all kinds of questions about the business of blogging. I answered them… and the response I got was incredible.

I fell in love with coaching bloggers and creative online entrepreneurs – like you – how to grow your businesses. I get SO flippin’ excited teaching and seeing the success of my students.

I launched this business as a strategist, and became obsessed with helping others with my secret sauce: passive income. No matter what the niche, I have focused in on the passive income opportunities and have built out successful, largely automated, businesses. Whether that looks like digital products like an online course or membership site, a dropship based ecommerce store, creating affiliate marketing funnels, or something else, I believe everyone can create a business around this passive income model.

I host an amazing membership program called The Passive Project. If you want to take your business to the next level, create an impact and an income, and make some biz besties while you’re at it, check it out here.

I also have a program on how to launch your own online shop using print-on-demand and dropshipping (sign up for the free masterclass here!).

I believe that everyone can build a wildly successful online business, but without the hustle and burn out. If you want to create your dream business to support your dream life, then I can’t wait to chat more!
