At the venerable of 21, I took the leap and launched an online graphic design business. Just two months away from my college graduation and with zero business classes under my belt, I took a chance on the whisper of a dream that I believed could turn into something more. Typing furiously away on the same laptop I used to take notes during my college lectures, I steadily built a six-figure business that enabled me to bypass the traditional rhythm of graduate-then-land-a-9-to-5 and instead, have been joyfully building a life that I love ever since.
But it wasn't always easy and it certainly didn't happen overnight. I've walked through seasons of uncertainty, more trial and error than I can count, and my fair share of failure. But each bump in the road turned into a learning opportunity for me to build a series of strategies, systems, and approaches that are worth their weight in gold.
