My Video Interview About Freelancing for Codeable

Below is a 25-minute video interview of me talking about what it’s like to be one of the hand-selected freelance WordPress developers at Codeable. I no longer have the massive beard but everything I mention in the video is very relevant to my audience so I wanted to share this here on my blog as well.

If you’d like to instead read the interview the full transcription is here: https://codeable.io/changing-lives-raleigh-leslie/

Please watch the video below, or simply listen as there are no visuals, and let me know in the comments if you have any thoughts or questions for me at all.

My Story: I Work from my Laptop from Anywhere

Dreams do come true. From a very young age I set a goal for myself that I wanted to be able to work from my laptop remotely from anywhere. The past year I’ve done exactly that and is one of the biggest accomplishments of my professional career. It wasn’t easy reaching this goal but has been as rewarding I had hoped it would be. Looking back I’m thankful for all the experiences along the way in reaching this goal and wouldn’t do anything different on my pathway to arriving here. I’ve managed to create a life/work balance that affords me the happiness I desired from the freedom of workplace. In this post I’m going to discuss getting to this point, what it’s like now, and what the future holds and future personal/work plans.

This story is long, and by no means the whole story, but I think paints the picture well enough to post here.
