freelance to freedom

Today I bring you an amazing success story from the Republic – a short conversation with web designer Leah Kalamakis.

Leah was able to achieve her first $5k month in her 5th month in business as a freelancer AND have enough time to launch a side project geared at helping you do the same.

Check it out, and please excuse the video quality. Part of the reality of location independence is less than stellar internet connections!
