How I Left Corporate for Freelance Freedom

It has almost been a month since I was laid off from my corporate job. Since then, I have been freelancing, blogging and teaching Pilates.

How Freelancers Can Stay On Top Of Their Fitness Game

Having been out of corporate America for the past six months, I’ve noticed how difficult it has been to keep a schedule, especially revolving around fitness.

What I read

I read a lot of health and wellness blogs as well as social media blogs to help me continually grow. I find most articles through Twitter and Pinterest which are my preferred sources of media consumption.

Side projects

I am a passionate Pilates instructor based in San Diego. I write a personal blog on healthy living and lifestyle hacks for the busy woman. Eventually I would love to open my own personal training business using my knowledge of digital marketing.

Ideal team

I work very independently so would love to be on a team that doesn't micromanage and is more project focused that the amount of hours something takes. Easygoing and quirky all mesh well with me.
