What’s Get Paid Living Your Passion All About?


GetPaidLivingYourPassion is all about empowering people with knowlege and information that…INFORM , PREPARE & EQUIP you to WIN in life. 


Well, through personal experience, I believe the BIGGEST dividing line between the have and the have not is access to the right resources, the right information and the right guidance.

I can say this with conviction because I’ve seen and experience it playout in my own life. That is why I’m so committed and passionate to share.

To share life changing success principles to help you bridge the gap and awake you to the fundamental truth of life…
We all have the seed of greatness planted in each and everyone of us by the creator.

So, we should all pursue the greatness, the callings and the opportunities of life so we can enjoy the abundance that are our birth right.

This in essence what I’m all about. Creator___Mantist Oryem

    My Story:

    I came in Australia back in 2004 as a refugee migrant with nothing but a suitcase and a dream.
    Sort of like a backpacker but with zero money. And nothing was going for me.
    Looking back, until I was 25, my life was really a nightmare.
    I had zero money. I couldn’t speak any English. I had zero marketable skill. Terrible self image. And almost next to nothing self confidence.
    In a word, I was right at the bottom of all citizens. And the only way forward was up.

    Rewind back.

     I was born in South Sudan…a war torn country for generations.
    I spent 10 years of my childhood in refugee camps…barely surviving. Would I eat today? Would I be safe today type thing. That was my daily state of mind.
    Raise by a single mum with no father power.
    My father died in action when I was only 2…fighting for what I’ve been fighting for basically most of my life FREEDOM. And that’s my background.
    As I think back, nobody could have guess…not even myself that one day I would be a success.

      Hey Mantist Oryem,
      I am impressed with your life story and your determination to be a success in life ..
      You have had your share of dangers pain and suffering and without doubt you have suffered your share of abuse and abusive people.
      I’m impressed with your determination as I believe only people who have had serious challenges from early life and reasons why they could be a no hoper – that have the necessary spirit and courage to act out in life as a businessman.

      Your quotes inspire, educate and replenish my senses.
      I love how four short lines of wise words can educate and communicate so much meanings in a way that some books as a whole can’t.
      I am forever grateful to your effort to enrich lives and cause the masses to awaken from poverty.
      Keep doing what you’re doing, we are here with you!!
