THE BALLER ON A BUDGET was an idea I had for years before I brought it to life. Every business starts with an idea created by a person – whether or not it comes to life is up to that visionary.
USE YOUR TALENT is a series of interviews featuring individuals who have used their talents and skills to create cash flow and successful businesses, some up to six figures. I created this series to help inspire the BoaB community, because everybody has a hidden talent worth sharing with the world. It’s time to monetize them.
Have someone who might inspire us too? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
