Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Tom Ewer from leavingworkbehind.com. He is a 28 year old professional blogger and freelance writer from the U.K. He started his freelance business in June of 2011 while working a full-time job as property manager. He always dreamed of becoming an entrepreneur but somehow that dream was deferred once he got older. To keep himself accountable, he created leavingworkbehind.com where he would keep track of his progress as an entrepreneur, finances and all. He started freelance writing with the plan to leave his full-time job within a year, but after some persistence and hard work he was able to quit his job in November of 2011, a full six months ahead of schedule. The great thing about his story is that he was no where near an academic when he started freelance writing, he actually barely made it through college, but his story shows that with some dedication and determination anyone can make their dreams a reality.
