Discover the secret to becoming a full time creator (and how to stay a full time creator)... because there’s nothing more humiliating than going back to a job you quit to begin with.
You know how helpless you feel when a brand tells you they “don’t have the budget to accommodate”.
You are SO tired of being put in a position to accept the low offer because it’s the best you can get from a brand at that moment (and that bill STILL needs to get paid).
You’ve been giving it your best shot negotiating! I SEE YOU! I know you’re thinking, “There has to be another way to monetize”. And yet, you know
Sometimes all you need to start an incredible journey is someone who will push you to take the first step.
You don’t want to go back to that corporate job that sucks the life out of you.
That romanticized corporate girlie lifestyle is such a lie. Unlimited PTO and promotions are just pawns to keep you on the hamster wheel.
Literally… how? When all you know how influencers make real money is through brand deals, affiliate sales and UGC?
You know for a fact working for brands won't ultimately bring you joy (oh God, you’re working for someone else again?!) and there’s some bigger purpose behind the moment you press post.
Figuring out ways to beat the algorithm (where you’re told to post 3-5x a day, praying to God your content gets seen by brands, and that brand's best offer is 20% commission from every sale) and scouring for every brand deal you can find because they’re not paying you enough
Are booked and blessed with brands who want to partner with you for 6 months and you turn down a $6,000 offer because there are brands who want to pay you more for WAY LESS WORK.
Bending over backwards for brands, creating 30-60 videos just to hit your $10k months
Having to stay at your conventional 9-to-5 because your side hustle as a creator isn’t making livable income
Post 3-5x a week to talk about a product or service that you curated for your community and selling out, making $10k, $20k or even $30k launches!
Work less than 10 hours a week because you have the systems in place that enables you to make money while you sleep (or sipping a marg in Mexico)
The only thing standing in your way… is having a simplified roadmap to grow your creator/influencer business from the ground up, that doesn’t leave you working 24/7, and to scale to a point where you have a clear retirement plan if you choose.
And no, it’s not too much to ask ;)
Learn *exactly* who you are as a creator and go from “this industry is too saturated for me to exist in” to “this is how I stand out”
Gain confidence in understanding how simple (and fun) the non-aesthetic parts of business really are
over the next 6 months, you will...
Map out your own customer journey and build a living, breathing ecosystem that allows your most loyal followers to buy in over and over without the *ick*

I'm an online educator, lifestyle content creator and microinfluencer based in Los Angeles with an audience of over 120,000 across the world wide web. I'm also an influencer talent manager over at Boost Society, where I help influencers negotiate their collaborations. I love helping creators, bloggers and influencers to not only monetize their influence online, but also create impact that drives change and have a fully-realized influential business.
I've been influencing since 2012, and for most of my career, I absolutely had no idea what I was doing.
I didn't know what I was worth, and I thought I needed over 50,000 followers to turn this gig into a career. So I treated it like a hobby and stayed with my engineering job.
But just like every run-of-the-mill story you've probably heard, the more I got promoted and led the multimillion-dollar projects of my dreams, the more miserable I became working in the corporate world.
So I gave myself 2 years to diversify and create new streams of income, and influencing sparked my exit strategy.
I came back to Instagram with new intentions and purpose: I wanted to help others live a life of purpose and create real, deep impact in the world. But the comeback wasn't easy at all.
There was A LOT OF LEARNING AND UNLEARNING involved. But I knew that if I really wanted to make my timeline work, I had to stop treating my influencer career like a hobby and start working it like a business.
I had every intention in juggling my 9-to-5 and my side biz until I can just live off my business income. BUT COVID HAPPENED, and my company laid me off in September of 2020. So I had no choice but to dive in and take more risks.
i have brought in $175,000+ in brand partnerships as a microinfluencer, helped my clients and students secure over $1.7 million and 10 creators hit that 6-figure mark in the last 2 years, and scaled my business to over $350,000 by 2022. I also have a powerhouse team of 10 who help me share everything I've learned with you in the last decade!
With all the years of trial and error, and my student-like mentality to find solutions for influencers' pain points, I've developed programs that will give you the tools to duplicate these results.
I'm passionate about sharing everything that I've learned over the last 10 years in the influencer industry, and I honestly just want to be one thing for you: that person I wish I had when I first started. So there's no fluff in the way I teach, which I hope you will come to appreciate.
In the last 4 years..

"There was so much honesty and raw truth from coaches that you probably wouldn’t get from other programs. It was helpful because I personally grow from constructive criticism and honest advice. I like that there were 3 dedicated coaches that helped and specialized in 3 different aspects so I was able to get my questions answered in depth by each person. It was also helpful when you all reminded me of how far I have come because I think we often forget our own progress."
"Naomi's mastermind was worth every penny. I was totally feeling lost before joining and I am so glad I invested in my future and business by joining OYI. I made back my initial investment a few times over. The knowledge I gained you can't put a price on. Thank you for all your help!"
"My favorite part of the mastermind was the coaches! I think the three of you provided amazing support and guidance. I learned a lot from you guys individually from the feedback you've given personally to me on Slack and on the coaching calls."
"I loved that Naomi actively helped us find campaigns that we are a good fit for and helped me understand my rates and worth. Not only that, but also understanding the wording and language for brand emails and opportunities, as well as being confident in turning down opportunities that aren't the right fit for me."
"The most beneficial part of the OYI Mastermind was the availability and the resources from my coaches! There was so much support from them and from the community."
"The coaches and community. I love having Naomi’s constant support and love how big everyone dreams together!"

i'm ready for this!
Working 1:1 with Naomi has catapulted not only my growth on Instagram, but also my confidence as a beginner content creator. She has been there holding my hand literally every step of the way. She is always available (wondering when she sleeps?), and always has the best feedback regarding content, captions, times to post...anything you can think of.
In the 3 months that I've been working with her, I've gained about 100 followers per month using her strategies, and my engagement level and reach have both doubled. I've had 2 brands reach out to me wanting to partner, and landed my first paid collab at just over 1k followers. 15/10 would recommend!
I can honestly say that working with Naomi has completely changed the trajectory of my business. When I first started this program, I had a dream of launching a lifestyle brand completely separate from the travel sphere I already occupied.
Naomi was one of the first people to tell me 'why not?' Every step of the way, from creating my brand pillars to nailing down a solid content calendar, she was there for me. Sometimes all you need to start an incredible journey is someone who will push you to take the first step.
That's what Naomi was for me, and I'm proud to say that I was part of this program.
The past year has been a whirlwind for everyone, but it was especially difficult to navigate as a small business owner. After two years dedicating time and effort into social media, I felt an urge to connect with a trustworthy person that would be able to assist taking me to the next level. After testing over three different agencies/persons, all whom felt short in one or more categories, my belief became non-existent and my guard was understandably high. But since signing with Naomi, she has not only succeeded in supplying valuable advice throughout my journey, but has also helped in creating a healthier business foundation. She is honest (which is a dying trait inside this particular industry), knowledgeably dispenses her own authentic tips/tricks, maintains an undeniable work ethic, and focuses on being fully present through hands-on teaching techniques - all while continuously showing how high your self-worth truly is. Trust me, take the leap with Naomi, she won’t let you fall!
When I first began the coaching program and started working 1:1 with Naomi, I was at a standstill with my Instagram followers and couldn't break 200. My TikTok had just taken off and was growing steadily at around 2k followers, but my Instagram, a total flop. Naomi taught me how to edit my photos and videos differently, in ways that were more modern and eye-catching, attracted new followers, and gained the attention of popular brands, some of which I'd consider dream brands. She also taught me how to batch content as a beauty influencer and pace my content in a way that prevents burnout. With the help of Naomi.... in just three months, I was able to grow my Instagram to 700 followers, expedite my growth on TikTok (I'm now at 12k followers), and secure my very first brand partnerships. With the coaching program, you get out of it what you put into it and I can honestly say, it exceeded any and all expectations I had coming into the program. If you want to learn from the best, learn from Naomi.
i have the upmost respect for naomi. before starting my journey i was clueless on how much i should be charging for partnerships and didn’t know how to negotiate with brands. i now feel confident when negotiating and have a better content creation strategy.
