Inspiring story of our subscriber who is a freelance we developer and became millionaire!

Freelancing for the past 10 years as a SEO guy to web developer has been quite a journey for me. It’s a realization of how far I’ve come since my first freelance gig back in 2013. During my college years, I stumbled upon an opportunity to work from home as a writer. In those early days of SEO, my job involved stuffing articles with keywords.


Between completing my degree and relocating to San Jose in 2016, I had 8 months to fill. It wasn’t long enough for a “real job,” but it provided ample time to hone my freelancing skills. I registered on various platforms, including Upwork, Freelancer and Fiverr, and took on diverse writing projects. I learned the nuances of website content, marketing copy, and blog writing.

For me, freelancing has always been about flexibility, allowing me to adapt and thrive. Over the next 2 years, freelancing sometimes became my primary source of income and at other times, my primary source of learning.

The freelancing landscape has evolved significantly since 2015, making it easier to kickstart a freelance career. While it still requires hard work to turn it into a full-time income, the opportunities are abundant. Platforms like Truelancer and Fiverr have opened up a world of possibilities.

Today in 2023, there are more freelancing opportunities than ever, with a growing appreciation for quality content. Companies recognize the value of outsourcing to freelancers, offering long-term partnerships instead of just one-off projects. Marketplaces like Upwork and Fiverr have simplified gig selling, eliminating the hassle of bidding.
