After I said, "Ok life, I'll go to Vegas. Make X, Y, and Z happen and I'll go."
Within a week and a half, ALL THREE THINGS HAPPENED.
The agency I was working for wanted to go a different direction. They wanted to be a public affairs agency. They eventually let go of the whole marketing team.
BUT, they decided to give me the marketing clients to take as my personal clients.
Finally, fully remote! Computer Life! Oh, and a few thousand bucks a month in client work, I'll take it! DREAMLIFE. HELLO.
Remember Remote Year from 2017? Well, this time I applied the second time.
I was so close to making it happen, but I just couldn’t afford it (yet) 🙌 Side note: the more I try to make things happen on my own, they don't. The moment I surrender, they happen on their own.
From there I had an opportunity to travel down to Colombia for two weeks and well, I ended up staying and living almost six months in Medellin, Colombia!
When I was in Colombia, a girl who I worked with at the previous marketing agency, was working with a big agency out of Santa Monica and they needed some help.
I started out as a contractor and eventually, they asked me to come on full-time working remotely as I came back to the states and moved to Las Vegas.
I took the offer and the situation leading up to finally moving to Vegas was looking REAL nice. Everything seemed to be falling into place.
