Sorelle Amore is an entrepreneur, YouTuber & visual content creator. She’s also the Dean of the Advanced Selfie University, a comprehensive online video course revealing the secrets to mastering the Art of a Self Portrait.

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, she ended up spending six years of her childhood in Poland before returning back to Aussie. Being raised by two entrepreneurs, she saw firsthand that it was possible to create your own life and live by your own means. Wanting to please her grandmother, she attended University in Sydney and got a marketing degree within 2 years. From there she entered the corporate environment working for Global1 Events.

At one point she started Pin Up Passion, a platform to help guide woman to empowerment, self love and educate them on vintage lifestyle. She then worked for a local photography company before quitting her job and moving to Iceland wanting to focus on a YouTube career.

In 2017, having $1,000 in her bank account and a goal to get paid to travel, she was selected out of 17,000 applicants as the winner of ThirdHome’s Best Job on the Planet where she traveled to 12 luxurious homes in 12 different countries, created blogs, videos, pictures and got paid for all of it. No matter where the road takes her next, she believes her purpose is to stay authentically herself.

In this Episode she discusses the importance of sticking to your own lane, the biggest hurdle she faced being a digital nomad for 2 years, the benefits of living a minimalist lifestyle, taking a 30 day social media detox and overcoming the dark places.
