Freedom – Quit My 9-5 Cube to Live the Freedom Lifestyle

Freedom - People Celebrate

I have a dream! No, I am not sharing MLK’s speech, but I do have a dream that I want to share with you today.

The one thing I didn’t know or take into consideration, was the amount of time it takes to actually work on posts, sharing posts via social media, and responding to email, Tweets, Facebook posts, etc. However, as many have said to me throughout the year, it is a labor of love and I have enjoyed it very much.
