LISA previously opened up to Fabulous about her lavish lifestyle.
She revealed: “We get opportunities now that I wouldn’t have had before.
“I’m able to take my friends and my colleagues on a private jet every year.
“I’ve been on holiday everywhere. We took the kids to Las Vegas, the Maldives, we’ve been to Dubai a fair few times, Malta too and we’ve stayed in the most beautiful hotels. 
“I travel a lot with work as well – I hold retreats for people and we do that in Los Angeles, Miami and Croatia.”
Not only is Lisa able to travel the world, but she’s also bought herself a posh pad too.
She continued: “I used to spend a lot of money on myself and I love bags, but I realised about two years ago, when you first get money you spend a lot because you never had it before. 
“Now I have bought properties so that my money is invested and the money is making me money.
“We just got a multi-million pound house because that’s more of an investment.”

Now Lisa helps other businesses develop through her course, One To Many, which is a programme to teach entrepreneurs how to make money online.The savvy mum can now make £2 million when she launches a new product. For those looking to get started and generate their own passive income stream, Lisa advised: “Remember that with any passive income – it’s not very passive at the beginning. You’re learning how to launch, you’re learning how to write a course and you’re growing an audience.”Fabulous will pay for your exclusive stories.
