HEY,👋 I'M DANIELLA
I'm a former software engineer and founder of the globally recognized & award-winning money, career, & side hustle resource platform for LGBTQ+ & neurodivergent folks -I Like to Dabble.
I started my business as a creative outlet between back-to-back layoffs and grew it on the side of my full-time job for 5 years until I left corporate for good in June 2022. This was after years of side hustling and building my portfolio career.
I've been there and done that so you don't have to.
Because of my side hustles, my wife and I have been able to pay off over $50k of debt, save & invest towards our goals, travel more, and move 2100 miles cross country to where we always wanted to live. Then last year I finally walked away from corporate to embrace this new exciting direction of my career.
The ILTD community has become this amazing group of creative individuals that help each other and continues to grow with a combined 100k+ monthly readers from the website and social media.
I've gotten the pleasure of writing for well-known websites like CNBC, Business Insider, Buzzfeed, TIME Next Advisor, CNET, and Citi and have been featured in The New York Times, MSN, Investopedia, SLATE, Yahoo! Finance, and more.
This all didn't come overnight but I had to start somewhere. I failed more than I succeeded but I learned as I went.
That's all failure really is - an opportunity to learn, grow, and evolve.
Have you been wanting to start a business of your own but you think that you are either “not enough” for whatever reason, you’re scared of what others might think, or you think it’ll fail before you’ve even given it a chance?
Or maybe you have no idea what you would do? You see side hustle stories online but it all seems so…exhausting.
That’s hustle culture for ya – work until you’re burnt out with not much to show for it.
I know it sucks. I started out my career barely making $30k a year and had to work multiple side gigs to get by and pay off debt. As my career grew and changed, I pivoted the way I worked and found a love for freelancing, remote work, small business, and what a side hustle could turn into. It finally clicked.
Now I blog & freelance write full-time while using my knowledge & experience to help others in the same boat pivot to remote work, start multiple income streams with businesses, get their money right, build wealth, and design their ideal lives.
It's time to stop the stressful hustle and find what clicks FOR YOU. Let me help ❤️
