Hello everyone! This is my introduction.


What field do you work in, and where are you located? I work in Software Development in financial services and I live in northern Kentucky area USA, just 15 mins outside of Cincinnati OH.  


  What are you hoping to learn from other members?  I'm interested in seeing how I can develop my own path on becoming a freelancer while supporting a family.  Hoping to get guidance from others. One of the biggest questions on my mind is how do you manage healthcare costs for a family with only one income as a freelancer. I have a lot of other questions on making the transition but healthcare is the biggest.



   What (or who) inspires you? It inspire me when people give without needing anything(or very little) in return. Something I try to do more of.



Feel free to reach out.

Hi Ryan!
You have a current and very necessary professional career, which is a benefit because someone will always ask for your services.
The migration to virtual work should be gradual, to avoid financial losses and to be able to continue supporting your family without worries. If it is possible for you to get an on-site job and keep it until the virtual job really pays you enough. Hopefully soon you will have so much work and well paid. Good luck!
