Dan Fleser

Full-time software engineer since 2014. I recently switched to freelancing, which is going great. Follow me on YouTube.

I recently switched from working at a company to freelancing and had a lot of my friends asking me: how's that going.

I'll tell you what I told everyone: It's going great, and I am really surprised I succeeded in this. The minimum salary I've got till now is $500/day.

You have to be good in order to switch to freelancing and get to those numbers, but it’s not that hard, so don't overthink, just start.

Because I successfully managed to convert 2 of my friend from 8–5 jobs to freelancing, and more of my friends want me to help them, I decided to create a video series about that later this year. It will be free on YouTube, so be sure you Subscribe here.

In this article, I'll share an overview of what I do to increase my income cash flow online from home and how you can do this too. This is only the first video of a video series.
