We’re down to the final installment of Making the Jump from the 9-5: Interviews with Pinoy Freelancers Who Left the Corporate World to Go Freelance. Thank you to everyone who has been listening and reading the posts since Day 1.

If this is your first time joining in, you can head over to Interview #1 and #2 for background info and for the first two features. For sure, you’ll enjoy them both. ;)

I’ve learned so much from the first two features we’ve covered, one of which is the importance of preparation.

When transitioning from a 9-5 setup to freelancing, you can’t just make rash decisions. Especially when it’s due to hype and desperation.

For today’s interview, I sat with Lianne Laroya, a freelance writer and founder of the personal finance blog, The Wise Living. She writes web content for small-medium businesses and worked as a full-time freelancer for two years.

Not only does she offer the same advice as Leah and Jasper did, but she also shares a really great finance tip for soon-to-be and regular freelancers during the interview. Join us find out what it is.

Thank you, Lianne, for sharing your story with The Freelance Pinoy!

Thank you as well to all the readers who have followed this series till the end. I hope that you have gained knowledge from the series and feel encouraged to make that transition to becoming a Pinoy solo professional.

I had a lot of fun doing this, so I look forward to more opportunities to engage with and learn from fellow freelancers. If you have a question, comment, or idea that you would like to share, feel free to do so in the comments!
