What inspired you to make the leap and go out on your own, and when did you first start working for yourself?
I started freelancing with a small Real Estate client back in 2016 after I gave birth to my first child, but along the way, I had always been facilitating freelance jobs aside from my full-time work commitments. I found it incredibly rewarding on a personal level.
