Like most freelancers, I work from home a lot of the time. While I recently started hanging out a co-working space (more on that later), I still work from home a lot. Also like many freelancers, I don’t live alone and I take care of people. I may not have kids, but I help with […]

I often get asked if someone can turn a hobby blog into a business. Meaning, whether or not they can turn their blog, which is mostly them writing about a hobby like fashion or beauty, into a full-fledged viable business.
