For so long, I’ve longed to break free from financial restraints. I’ve tried so many things. I’ve worked in corporate, but I guess I was not good enough to be promoted to higher ranks where you earn a six figure salary. I tried multilevel marketing when it came out, but I am not a sales person and had a hard time trying to convince people, even my friends, to try my products let alone sign up to sell them. I loved being Starbucks barista and the free coffee every day is awesome. However, coffee cannot really fill my kids’ stomachs and buy toys and books. Using what I earned as a barista, I was able to put some savings in the bank, but not really the amount that I had in mind.

Currently, I am trying my luck in driving for Uber. It is great, so far. I am my own boss and I get to see parts of the city that I’ve never seen before considering that I’ve lived here all my life. I get to meet different people everyday, although I am not the “talking-type.” Best of all, I dictate how much I want to earn by working as much as I want. Life is great.

There are a lot of ways that you and I can break free. It is easy and it is different for everyone. The important part is knowing what you want and not giving up if you do not find it the first time.
