Aleia Walker is a freelance mentor and web developer helping creatives quit their day jobs to build the careers of their day dreams.
Three years ago she was an unhappy corporate drone. She did not feel valued at work and knew that something needed to change, so she started looking for skills that would make her more attractive - skills that would let her quit her full-time job and work on her own terms.
Aleia tested out a few side hustles: Calligraphy, woodworking, business writing, and social media strategy to name a few until settling on web development and design—it’s now one of her greatest passions! It wasn’t an easy journey and she did not have limitless funds or time, so Aleia made sure she could learn and apply a lot in a little time, with little money. Six months after starting to learn new skills, she started freelancing. And a year later, she quit her full-time job. And Aleia feels like she provides value to someone every damn day.
