It’s nice to meet you!
Let’s start from the beginning so you know my full story.
Before I began freelancing, I was climbing the corporate ladder.
But climbing is a strong word, because I was more clinging to the rungs for dear life while trying to survive never-ending layoffs in a turbulent industry.
So when my husband signed a work contract overseas in Europe, I had no choice but to quit my job and move abroad with him (I wasn’t complaining!).
I packed our life into some sturdy suitcases and off we went.
But I knew I couldn’t just sit by myself in a foreign country. I needed something to keep me busy. The only problem? I had no stability. We began moving around every several months. (I think we did about eight overseas moves in four years; some moves we only had two days notice to pack up and get to another country.)
I knew a traditional job would be hard—if not impossible—to maintain. And an online job?
So, I decided to combine my marketing degree and corporate marketing experience and started freelancing as a designer.
I began making logos and designing websites—hence the name Dana Nicole Designs—but after a couple of years, I realized my true passion: writing.
Growing up, I loved to write. However, I never believed I could make a career with my words.
But as I continued blogging, I realized I might be able to crack it as a writer. And that leads us to today, where I continue writing copy + content for B2B brands.
And when I come across some useful tips, I share them to my blog. (Which you can check out, here.)
