    After 1 year 353 days, I matched my old corporate monthly take home working for myself...

    After 1 year 353 days, I matched my old corporate monthly take home working for myself...

    This week is a solo episode where I share a HUGE milestone in my journey.  I shared it on Twitter and thank you to all the kind words and support.  Matching my old monthly corporate earnings working for myself was a milestone that felt so far out of reach just 6 weeks ago that it shocked me when it happened seemingly so quickly.  Like most stories, this wasn't fast, easy or without a lot of work from me and support from so many others.  I break it all down and walk you through how I got here.
