Four years ago, Kelly Peck embarked on a journey that would change her life forever. With her husband Adam & a couple of second-hand bikes, she took a one-way flight to Havana, Cuba & from there the first part of her online business was born.
She followed her heart & turned her passion into a business. She has built her online business on the road, works with clients across the globe & has spoken at events such as Borderless Live & Destination Shows about living a location-independent lifestyle.
I (Anita Aloe) am a licensed FBO Forever Living Business owner which enables me to promote, recommend and make affiliate commission from any of the products purchased through my Forever Living online store. This affiliate income goes directly towards the running of this website, my business and allows me to continue to help others with better health and wellbeing. All products on this site are recommended by me, from my own personal experience. Individual results may differ from person to person.
Tell me a little about yourself and what you do…
I’m Kelly, Co-Creator & Digital Business Coach at The Green Thread, Co-Creator at Van Life, Adventure & Nature blog The Wilder Route & Co-Creator at Organic Clothing range Nature Threads. The passion to profit dream is something that has very much become a reality for me. Along with my husband Adam, I run my business entirely online, meaning I am fortunate to be able to work from wherever I choose.
Q1 – Passion To Profit – How did you come up with the concept and name for your business?
My online business was born from my love of nature. I have a deep passion for working with nature & in helping others to connect with & share their love of nature. Each aspect of my business reflects this, from the clients I work with to the content that I create & share.
The names for each aspect of my business reflect the inspiration I draw from nature & my desire to work & live more harmoniously with the natural world.
Q2 – What motivates you to be creative?
Being outdoors, especially near the ocean or up a mountain. For me, being in a natural environment allows my creativity to flow & this, in turn, results in me being able to serve others better.
Q3 – Nature is something that inspires me massively, how would you say that this relates to you?
You’ve probably guessed the answer to this by now, but absolutely. Mostly all of my creative ideas come to me when I’m amidst nature, & as an intuitive & empath I able to pick up on subtle hints in myself & my environment which help me to drive my business forward in a way that keeps me aligned & true to my purpose. I feel that anyone who is looking to turn their passion into profit would benefit from spending more time in nature.
Q4 – When did you start using Forever Living’s natural products?
When I first met Anita, just over 18 months ago. Being a nature lover I am always on the lookout for natural products & was delighted to be introduced to Forever’s Aloe Vera based products.
Q5 – What are your favourite Forever Aloe Vera products?
I love Forever bee products, especially the propolis creme, which I find extremely soothing for my skin. Also, spending time outside a lot means my skin is in need of protection from UV rays for which Forever’s aloe sunscreen is perfect.
Q6 – From Passion To Profit – if you could share one tip for other creative business owners or people looking to start their own business what would it be?
Slow down! Building a purpose-driven business is not about driving yourself into the ground, it’s about aligning with what sets your soul on fire & sharing your magic with the world. I truly believe that sitting with ourselves & just listening allows us to identify with the work that we need to truly be doing in the world & of course the more in tune we are with the natural world, the easier this will be.

What a lovely story Anita , running through someone else’s thoughts and achievements in life their lives, inspires me too .
Thank you for my latest order, which arrived on time, as usual .
My favourite has to be the serum, it glides and absorbs so well into my skin to give a great hydrating base for under my makeup.
Love the hand soap, and in this order received the new packaging too !!!!!
You know i can be very imaginative with my products and have used this recently in my bubble bath !!!!
I really just thought it might work for a little, but not last too long. Well to my surprise, my bubbles never lasted so long in my bath .
What a product, for such a basic product, but I suppose this is a true staple . ?
Thank you and best wishes Anita.
Thank you Sue. I am glad you enjoyed the article with Kelly about turning passion into profit and also so happy that you love your latest order. I totally agree – the hand soap and the serum are certainly some of my favourites and great for everyday use! Thanks again. Anita. x
