I’ve been alone ‘journey to freedom’ for about 3 months now.
I’ve a pipeline of freelance shoppers, and simply made my first $1000 with my youngsters’s AI e-book workshop (yay!).
Somedays it looks like an exciting joyride. Different days it looks like a automotive crash ready to occur.

I’ve tremendous wholesome days, and days stuffed with snacks I might do with out.
I’ve days stuffed with gratitude and peace. And days stuffed with scurry and scatter.
I’m always taking part in tug of warfare between securing work that pays, making time for my very own tasks, and making certain I spend high quality time with my youngsters – which is the core cause behind taking this leap.
