Forget the past. Forget your age. Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
The important question is NOT: Are your desires going to be easy to achieve?
The important question IS: Are your desires worth the hard work?

When was the last thing you did something that made you happy? Something that scared you? Something that is so hard? Something no one else is doing? Something no one can do for you? But something you want to do

So far I have made close to $1,000. It is not a lot of money but for someone who had zero faith in online work, this is almost a miracle. I know of many people who can afford to live comfortably without starting a business or requiring a regular 9–5 job but by just freelancing.
