This is a business trip?!
1st Year Self-employed!
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
I've been self-employed for over 5 years now, but just last year I was able to convince my wife to quit her job in Corporate America and join me in my Online Marketing Business.
The journey has been great, as it allowed her to join me in many of my business trips (something she couldn't do before when she only had 2-week vacation).
In my business, I have speaking engagements all over the U.S. and occasionally also overseas. Therefore, we've been able to swim with Dolphins in Isla Morada (Florida), take a boat tour through the Channels in Amsterdam, enjoy the food and architecture in Barcelona, appreciate the beauty of the mountains and beach in Santa Barbara (California), among other cool places where work takes us.
Every January, there is a big one-week Marketing Event on a cruise! We had the opportunity to join this year for the first time. A lot of great networking opportunities and joint venture partners were built. That was the start of a wonderful 2013 where my wife Maria and I had been able to teach online marketing to entrepreneurs while travelling the world!
Feeling blessed for doing what we love: inspire, motivate and educate entrepreneurs while enjoying life and travelling.
