A WOMAN who was once in thousands of pounds of debt now makes £50,000 a month in a business teaching other entrepreneurs to be confident. 

Amy Crumpton, 35, from Leeds, insists that “no one needs to work so hard to be successful” and says she earns six figures a year, while her company is worth nearly £1million. 

Amy specialises in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), which helps give confidence building techniques to business owners. 

Amy said she came from a working-class family, never went to university and lived pay cheque to pay cheque in her early career in marketing. 

She said she had the mentality that she “wasn't good enough or smart enough to have it all”.

She now helps businesswomen improve their own companies by offering confidence-boosting programmes and showing them how to attract new clients. 

Speaking to FEMAIL, she said: “My family who would tell me that you had to work really hard to make a lot of money, and that making £30,000 a year was a lot – but my business now makes more than that in a month.

“I lived my life for so long believing that I wasn't good enough or smart enough to have it all and that I would have to settle for an average life.

“The least amount of money I've ever had is zero in my account and purse, with thousands of pounds of credit card debt that I just couldn't shift for years.”

She said she could never imagine not living month to month, before she turned her life around, quit her job in PR and marketing and travelled the world.

Amy said it was during a healing ceremony in Cusco, Peru, that she realised she “had to let go of all my feelings of not being good enough”. 

Amy, who is engaged to Chris, 31, a Peak Performance fitness coach also from Leeds, said the experience helped to put her on the path to launching her brand, the Social Cactus.

She added: “Now my business makes on average £50,000+ per month and I personally earn six-figures. We are projecting a seven-figure year this year which is amazing given that Social Cactus started in a hostel room in Peru.”

In order to make her business a success, Amy said she had to get over “limiting belief” about her self worth, and in the early days admitted she was “at risk of burnout”.

Now she typically works 30 hours a week, between the hours of 10am and 4pm. 

The Social Cactus helps to give clients clarity on what they want their business and ideal client to look like, and offer sales and marketing plans. 

She now hopes to relocate to her dream £1million villa in Marbella in April and said that if a “normal girl” like her with “no qualifications” can build a multi-six-figure business in three years, anyone can.
