When I first started working from home, I was a third-party saleswoman for a company that had affiliations with all of the local communications providers. My job was simply to get customers and earn a commission every month when they pay their bill. I enjoyed what I was doing. But, little did I know, the CEO of the company was causing a scramble within the business. His name was Bernard Ebbers, a Canadian businessman who frauded people out of millions of dollars.

The events that eventually led to his conviction were more than enough reason for me to branch out on my own. So, I did. I started off just doing affiliate marketing, working with various companies one at a time. Sharing the links were easy, but I rarely got any sales. Hence, I quit working from home for awhile. By 2016, I was at it again. This time, I was armed with plenty of knowledge. I had learned so much as a student working towards my degree in Business Administration. You don’t need a degree to become a freelance digital marketing agent, but the knowledge of how to run a business sucessful will surely help you in the long run.
