07 Apr Intentional Traveler Interview: Intrepid Freelancer
Our latest installment of Intentional Traveler interviews features Suzi Pratt, at Intrepid Freelancer. We met Suzi in person just last month, thanks to the Find A Nomad project (a site that shows you other digital nomads in your area at a given time). We crossed paths while visiting our respective families on Oahu, and had a great meet-up at Liliha Bakery. We’re really impressed with how Suzi has pulled together a freelance career for herself so that she can make time for travel.
However, I had no skill or way of making money. My first attempt at a business venture was an online dating profile writing service, and around that time I got introduced to the prolific Seattle music scene. While still at a full-time corporate job, I became an editor and photographer at a local music blog and literally fell into the world of photography. I spent a couple years doing concert photography and photojournalism for local news and culture blogs. While I certainly didn’t make a ton of money working for those blogs, I benefitted in that I was building a huge list of contacts who eventually turned into valuable clients. I took the leap to the full-time self employed lifestyle in October 2012 when I realized I was making more money off of side jobs than I was at my full-time job at the time. I haven’t looked back since!
