It’s going to be a story about two best friends (and after couple of months — 3 friends) who were standing on their heads to create an app that probably will change many freelance and nomadic lives. At least we believe so…

Pssst! Really happy to announce that my personal blog about marketing is LIVE!⭐️⭐️ This article was originally published there.

First of all, I just want to thank you for reading my last article that I originally published on Medium: “This is how I dropped out of university and started living my dream life”.

What happened after writing that article has exceeded my expectations… Let me tell you the whole story from the very beginning.

Wish you all rock the world in 2016! Happy New Year!
