Like many people, I always wanted to be financially stable, and I have always struggled to work for someone. I don't come from a wealthy background or have an array of networking contacts to help pursue my dreams. Consistent researching, finding, and understanding my craft made me understand that the entrepreneur's life is key! Most importantly, monetizing on a passion.

I watched from leaders and passionate risk-takers of the industry craft to understand the depth of what it takes to have a digital business presence.
