Quit his Job in HR after his passion for animation turned from a side hobby to a full time income generator online.


"When you are working alone and trying to achieve something, it isn't easy to judge how far you’ve progressed. Belonging to a progressive community helped a lot. It pushed me to try and do some things differently and ultimately led me to move to work online full time. I now have a full order book creating animations for customers from all over the world and I am now working towards taking on my first round of staff to help me cope with the workload."

Landed his first 1k month working remotely as an Online Course Content LMS administrator.

I really liked the way the program started. It started with the weekly podcasts that helped change the mindset because nothing really changes at the end of the day until one changes their perception, the way they look at things. That was a big plus for me. One of the podcasts that stood out for me was imposter syndrome. It helps when you are trying to do something new, and you are worried about not being qualified for it. I have learnt that one has to be comfortable in their skin for the rest of the world to be comfortable with them.
