We all abandoned the 9 to 5 world and we’re much happier for it!

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]We decided to leave our jobs in the UK and try living in other countries. In order to make money we looked into online freelancing.

We had a number of false starts and it took us a while to get to the point where it was financially worth it. We learned a lot along the way about how to make the process easier, faster and smoother.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Our friends started to ask how they could make the transition as well; and we started to help them. We realised that lots of people want to take advantage of online freelancing to get away from the usual office lifestyle.

We started no9to5 to help people escape the office like we did.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_empty_space][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1437651074043{margin-bottom: 10px !important;}”][vc_column][anim order=”fadeInUp”][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1442653191077{margin-bottom: 0px !important;background-color: rgba(193,224,219,0.95) !important;*background-color: rgb(193,224,219) !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mes_empty xs=”true”][vc_team_member image=”5422″ name=”Ben Wroe” position=”Chief Blog Guy” bg2=”#333333″ welcome=”Spider-Man or Batman?” fb_url=”https://www.facebook.com/notothe9to5/” tw_url=”https://twitter.com/notothe9to5″ gplus_url=”https://plus.google.com/u/3/b/112934967781239180547/112934967781239180547/about” in_url=”https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=AAIAAAok4a0BYWcDOuVxHvn4ztD2gYjcbaTNrS8&trk”]Ben made the transition from 9 to 5 life with Agi and likes it a lot. He is a top rated freelancer on Upwork and when Agi suggested no9to5 he jumped at the chance because it made so much sense.

Ben is an ultra nerd and reads more comics than normal books. He also loves to travel and abandoning the corporate working world has let him do a whole lot more of that.[/vc_team_member][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1437650337499{margin-top: -50px !important;}”][mes_empty xs=”true”][mes_empty xs=”true”][vc_team_member image=”5423″ name=”Agi Pudlicka” big_true=”true” position=”Head of Ideas” bg2=”#333333″ welcome=”Wanna go for a run?” fb_url=”https://www.facebook.com/notothe9to5/” tw_url=”https://twitter.com/notothe9to5″ gplus_url=”https://plus.google.com/u/3/b/112934967781239180547/112934967781239180547/about” in_url=”https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=AAkAABMCM8EBh9kfVM4c_saAYjQrW7WtAybO3rE”]Agi came up with the idea for no9to5 after she made the transition to online work. Loads of people asked how she became successful as an online freelancer. Upwork is Agi’s preferred platform and she is a top rated freelancer.

Agi loves running (no, really, you might enjoy running, she LOVES it). She makes delicious vegetarian food and goes crazy if she sees a dog.[/vc_team_member][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mes_empty xs=”true”][vc_team_member image=”5424″ name=”Oli Brushfield-Smith” position=”Customer Service Wizard” bg2=”#333333″ welcome=”Let’s talk Man U” fb_url=”https://www.facebook.com/notothe9to5/” tw_url=”https://twitter.com/oliverbrush” gplus_url=”https://plus.google.com/u/3/b/112934967781239180547/112934967781239180547/about” in_url=”https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=AAkAAAYxCn8Bj164VPhrxsnooBqnOkPNq-SON4M”]Oli is our resident expert on customer service.
