Countless times I have found myself vulnerable, weak, and exhausted by constantly thinking about the past.

As the sun dips and the moonrise, the ability of my brain to overthink scenarios accelerates.

I moved on from my past, left it all behind. It was painful at first, but what I found is invaluable — peace.

The tips are from my one year of personal writing experience that will help every writer kickstart their writing journey or take a jump from where they are stuck today.

LinkedIn is not only for job postings and catching those, it is a platform to develop your personal brand and market your services.

I grabbed my first freelance opportunity on Linkedin without any prior experience. No previous clients, no testimonials, and no ratings.

LinkedIn is not as complex as it seems. The platform is inundated with like-minded, encouraging, and positive people which help you to grow and skyrocket your career.

Let’s get started.
