Over the past few years, I've worked at a number of different jobs. I first started out my "entrepreneurial" journey as a jewelry designer selling on Etsy. I fell in love with working for myself and starting things, and I also fell in love with designing. I ran my small jewelry business while living in a campervan so my husband and I could travel the USA. About 6 months into our glorious journey around the US, we decided to take our nomadic lifestyle international and took off for Europe! We've been working and traveling ever since.
Once we started traveling internationally, I decided to put my jewelry business on pause and pursue my passion for design and creating beautiful products by learning web design. In just 6 short months, I went from knowing nothing about the field to being fully equipped to make consistent income online. Now, I can at anytime pull in anywhere from $1-4k/month from my freelancing alone!
Platforms such as Elance and Upwork were crucial to my success as a freelancer that was starting from scratch. I want to share what I've learned about working on freelance platforms, as well as what I've learned in my field, in hopes that I can help other people find success and grow their freelancing income.
