Ever have one of those days when you’ve checked off everything from your to-do list?

Your energy is at an all-time high; you feel invincible!

It’s been about two years since I quit my job.

The initial plan was not online entrepreneurship. But it was a discovery that was hard to shake off. Over the years, I have tried (and failed) at several projects.

Finding my footing in this new, uncertain, often lonely world of…
