Various freelance work
Freelance digital marketing work in this ~18-month period. I began using Webflow in Sep 2021 and almost immediately started helping clients with web design and front-end development. I also began exploring the decentralized blockchain Hive and the crypto industry at large.
Dec 2019 - Aug 2021
Started to play around with video content at the end of 2019. After ~18 months of posting literally hundreds of videos on TikTok, YouTube and Instagram (both Shorts and Longs), I totally burned out, and stopped creating content. It was a great training exercise nonetheless.
Clotsu - Co-founder - Dropshipping
Clotsu was a Shopify-based dropshipping women's clothing store. I was very interested in exploring the dropshipping niche. I absolutely hated it and abandoned the project after just 6 months. It was, however, a great way to learn how to build eCommerce websites in Shopify and launch Facebook Ads to acquire traffic and generate sales.

2 startup projects - Co-founder
Launched different side-hustle projects at various stages in this period. Not sure on dates here. Some were actual startup projects, which were never fully developed due to lack of time and/or capital. It was, however, a great opportunity to learn how to pitch potential investors and VCs as well as build something from scratch.
