About Me

Starting over after 40…

Hello… Welcome to my website.

You are here because you have big dreams and desires to have a better life… and you are willing to do whatever it takes to find a way to get them!

Who is Irina Kirilyuk?

I was born in Kiev, Ukraine, in 1977.

When I was almost 15 years old, my family moved to the United States, where I am currently residing.

As you can only imagine, moving to another country as a teenager was not so glamorous, but I knew to regain my self-confidence I had to study English and learn it fast!

My free-spirited personality was a huge asset while learning and adapting to my new life. I was hungry for knowledge; I wanted to fit in but also wanted to be me!

While being new to the country and in a new high school was not easy, I was amazed at the amount of opportunity that was available in this country.

By the age of 16, I was able to work in a dental office as a dental assistant. I was absolutely in love with my new life, job… and I was determined to learn everything I possibly could about the field.

I found a new challenge… to become the most reliable, dependable, and knowledgeable employee possible.

And guess what? I did it! 😊

You just never know …

By the age of 19, I got married, and by 20 I became a young mother to my wonderful son Michael.

At that time, I realized… that life was not as easy as I thought it would be.

My marriage was falling apart fast, and I was terrified about raising my son on my own.

After almost six years of marriage,  I made a conscious decision to end the toxic relationship and committed my whole focus to raise my son.

My whole focus was to be the best parent I can be!

In spite of my struggles as a single parent and provider for my son, my passion for helping others grew over the years more and more. I was able to go back to school to further my education in the dental field.

I was working long hours, studying at night so I could better my financial situation, provide for my son and build the life I always dreamed of.

My curiosity for life was always with me!

As I continued to build my life, I always made sure to allow some time for my passions.

My curiosity for life led me to learn to ride a Harley at age 35.

I will never forget the excitement and freedom I felt on my first ride to the store… and that’s where I got reminded again that the destination is not as crucial in life as the journey to get there.

I believe my curiosity for life led me to my now amazing fiance and best friend, Jeff.  The man who lets me, be me, and who make my life even more beautiful.

What is missing?

By the age of 37, I was able to build a stable career in my dental field, but something was missing!

I was making a good salary, was well respected by the patients and others in the office, but something was still missing. Why am I not as fulfilled as I thought I would be with my success?

My passion for a fulfilling life, filled with travel and independence was always on the back of my mind.

At that time… I was not quite sure how I would have the time and money to achieve this.

Because of my thirst for knowledge and “Never give up” attitude throughout the years, I kept my options open and even started a few side businesses with hopes to quit my day job.

In search of my ideal business I stumbled across a lot of “Scam opportunities,” but that didn’t stop me!

Deep down I just knew, there must be a way!

This… was my wake-up call!

I don’t know if you can relate to this but have you ever given guidance to your child, but personally was not willing to follow your own advice when it’s needed the most?

That’s how I was feeling…

I always encouraged my son to follow his dreams and to pursue his callings, no matter what! I was teaching him to leap ahead, don’t be bothered by others opinion, always try new things in life, and here I am unsatisfied with my life and doubting my abilities to learn a new skill?

This was my wake-up call, and I knew I had to do something about it.

Feeling unfulfilled was driving me crazy for some time and started to increase even more after my son left for a school overseas. But honestly, at that time I was not sure what to do.

So, the only advise I knew it would work, is the advice I was always giving my son – follow your heart!

How can I bring my skills online?

I  started sharing my frustration with my partner, Jeff, who is a fantastic individual and has always been there for me for the past six years.

He encouraged me to follow my dreams, and I was again on my way to figuring out the “How”.

How can I bring my skills and talents online?

Because I had an extreme desire to succeed, I was not afraid to work hard. I was not looking for “get rich quick” opportunities.

It’s almost like the universe was always there whispering to me, and because I was ready to listen, the opportunity presented itself.

I came across some information on how to build a profitable online business while doing what I love.

I jumped on-board right away. I knew I had a lot to learn, but that was not going to stop me. I saw how my life would change if I would follow the step by step proven system.

Honestly, I was scared to death to leave my 25-yr career and go straight into my own online business, but the fear of not making a move was even more terrifying.

I know I’m on the right path, now things fall in place. I started to dream again, and I’m planning the six-month trip that I have always dreamed of.

I can’t wait to share it with you! 😊

What You are looking for is always looking for you!

Maybe you found yourself on a similar path in your life, and a significant change is needed to follow your dreams.

I am here to inspire you and give you some courage. I know what it feels like to be stuck and fearful.

I believe we are here to be an inspiration and to learn from each other.

My dream is to travel the world while inspiring others to be all they came here to be. You have one life, and this life has an expiration date.

I encourage you to follow your dreams, to think big, and always follow your heart.

I am looking forward to sharing my life adventures with you!

Love, Irina
