Hey what’s up everybody?! So where do I start…

Well, not that long ago I was one of those kids that was high on the American Dream.

I’d graduated college with my Master’s in Accounting, had an amazing office job, and made more money than I knew what to do with…

But like most people in that situation, even though I acted like I was living high on the hog, deep down I absolutely hated what I was doing (Commercial Lender that was screwing people over) and after 5 years of doing this…

I finally self-sabotaged myself and got fired (mouthing off to a “big wig” while drunk).

This then sent me into months of feeling like a sorry little sad sack, but after finally running out of money and being forced to figure something else out, I came across the concept of freelancing and haven’t looked back since.

The first few years I was really just trying to figure everything out, but after I did, I quickly realized that everybody has a freelance skill in them and that’s really the main message I spread now.

To give you a good example of this, here’s one of my most popular articles:

8 Insanely Profitable Skills You Can Learn For Free (And On Your Own Time)

And I look forward to “meeting” everybody on here!

Do you have any stories you can tell about your job? Or is it like hush hush?

It has been a few years since you've freelanced?

I would be interested to know in the types of jobs that you are doing and if you are just getting by from month to month, or if you are putting yourself in a position to thrive?

All the best my man, welcome to the forum!
