What Will You Find Here
Stories, practical tips and insights on how to start living your life on your own terms.
All the content on this blog is a direct result of my years of experience as a freelance marketing consultant and many questions I receive on a daily basis from the fellow freelancers who read my blog.
- Best practices and freelance 101 tips
I made a lot of mistakes along the way, especially early in my freelance career, so wanna-be and starting freelancers will have the chance to learn from my mistakes and not waste time with bad practices. Instead, focus on what's working and move confidently to your dream life.
- Marketing and pricing strategies
No matter your profession, being a freelancer is not only about doing your job. It’s about positioning yourself in front of the right crowd and charging top dollar for your services to lead the life you want. Don’t go down this path alone – use my marketing background and expertise to find freelance work and go from zero to hero in just a few months.
- Communication and relationship building with clients
I strongly believe effective communication is the foundation of successful collaboration. I'll show you how to be an effective communicator every step of the way, and how to build rapport with clients. Be the freelancer to whom clients flock – it all starts with developing and improving your effective communication skills.
I’ve been living my dream life for a while now. I’m just a regular gal from a small town in a country I bet you’ve never heard of. If I can do it, you can do it. So what’s a better way to inspire you than sharing a piece of my life with you? Be on the look for “from where I work today” posts, favorite digital nomad destinations, freelance lifestyle know-how, and more.

Who Am I and Why Listen to a Word I Say
I have completed more than forty freelance projects. I am a top-rated freelancer on Upwork (formerly oDesk) with 5,500+ paid hours and even more if counting the hours spent working on fixed-price jobs. Clients continuously rate my work with the maximum review rating of five-stars.
Today I fully enjoy the freelance lifestyle—traveling the world while making a good living working online. My market rates range from $40+ per hour for hourly jobs, all the way up to $100+ per hour when working on fixed-price projects.
I sure made a lot of mistakes early on in my freelance career—for example, I was selling myself short when working for as low as $7 per hour during the first few months—and I have come a long way since then.
Listening to me and putting my tips into practice will save you precious time and allow you not to make rookie mistakes but learn from mine instead.
