Writing wasn’t easy for me in the beginning and back then, I had no idea that I will eventually write for a living.
However, I distinctly remember being excited about having my personal journal when I was a kid.
There was something special about this small notebook where I could wrote anything that got through my mind without anyone to know. Obviously, I went to great lengths to keep my journal secret!
During my childhood, I filled a couple of notebooks with different thoughts and small stories. Eventually, my writing passion began back in March 2012 when I wanted some extra money to buy an Android phone.
I’ve tried numerous ways of making money online, but freelance writing really agreed with me. Like most freelancers out there, we think we can do this to get some extra pocket money to buy impulse items and this was my idea too.
How wrong I was!
I soon realized that I can pay my rent, buy food, and have money to spare on clothes and gadgets. One of the first things I bought with my “writing money” (besides the aforementioned smartphone) was a stationary bicycle.
That’s how my love affair with fitness began. Before I know it, something which started as a side hustle quickly transitioned into a well-paying, full-time career.
Along the way, I bought a plethora of fitness equipment, including a 40kg punching bag and boxing gloves. I experimented with different physical exercises and I guess I can say that writing paved my way into fitness.
You can now imagine that it didn’t take me long to put two and two together and find myself writing mostly in the health and fitness niche.
Over the years, I read a lot of health-related material and tried multiple workouts myself. I love the fact that the more you learn, the more you realize how little you know!
I sincerely believe that learning about the human body, how it works, and how it can be optimized is a lifelong journey. And I also love that I get to write about my favorite topics and getting paid for it.
In my spare time, I read, do yoga, and try to take care of this little guy here. His name is Zorro! 🙂
