If you read my blog regularly, you already know that I prefer to work an entire pile of 10-99 contract jobs rather than being stuck in one soul-sucking corporate 9-5. Unfortunately, contract work can be fickle and sometimes contracts fall through at inopportune times, making me regroup and find another revenue stream quickly.

I moved to North Carolina nearly 6 years ago and now that’s all changed.… Continue reading Hurricane Florence And The Machine: Time To Shake It Off
