Now many of them (freelancers) realize that they can freelance and generate incomes for their families, all whilst doing it on their own terms.” Sophia further stated that, according to CNBC, the freelancing industry grew to $1.2 trillion in 2020, a 22% increase over 2019.

Terrence says, “my parents tell me not to just consume but to build and create so that not only will I benefit, but others get the opportunity they so desperately need.” He further stated, “You can go as far as you can dream if you are intentional about your thoughts, habits, actions, and friends.”
