Quitting my 9-5pm job and joining the Millennial generation of freelancing and creative living has taught me A LOT and led me to explore new career opportunities that I had previously never imagined. While it’s hard work, the freedom to take on new projects, learn new skills, and work with talented, passionate people has been an invaluable experience.
As I continued to venture into the realms of marketing and web design as a freelancer, I used my writing skills to reflect and share my insights with others in positions as an Inbound Marketing Consultant at Growth Labs and a Contributor to the Envato Blog.

In the wake of America’s decision on Tuesday, November 8th, 2016 to elect Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence to the positions of President and Vice President, I, along with many other millennials who voted for Hillary might appear a bit dramatic. My Facebook is a string of statuses of sadness, disbelief, and disappointment. We are shocked, horrified, and unstable. We are posting, tweeting, sharing articles to apologize to each other and the world for this decision and what it implies. I’ve heard it from relatives, friends overseas, and older generations that we need to calm down. So, why are we freaking out so badly?
