WHO THE _ _ _ _ ARE YOU?!

Hey, that's me! Jerrin Finney! It's not the Warner Bros. water tower in blackface, so don't report it!

Hi there! I'm some random voice on the internet among many. If you want to give me a name, you can call me Jerrin Finney. I want to share my knowledge and thoughts with others because sharing knowledge is how we advance in life as a species. So I want to be as helpful as I can in adding valuable information to the knowledge pool we currently have access to. I know how things work on search engines. It's all about ranking on the first page, and not providing audiences with information that they would value.

The first pages on search engines like Google Search and Bing sometimes carry unhelpful websites that are just there because they have the right keywords or they somehow found a way to play the SEO optimization game without providing any content of substance. With that said, it is harder to fool the search engines as companies like Google put more policies and steps in place to make sure they deliver more quality websites to the top of their search engines. I hope you find this website because of its helpfulness to your burning questions about self-employment and The 1099 Life.

I'm not worried about what's on top of the search engines as much as I'm worried about providing helpful information to at least one person. If I've done that, then I've done my job well in my eyes. And my eyes are the only ones that matter since I'm my boss now! But seriously, I do want you to leave here with a good experience and be more informed than you were when you came.

I do freelance writing, own a lot of e-commerce stores (one's a fashion store, I have an online coffee shop among others) and another website, www.jerrinfinney.com, where I talk about what I've learned from my experiences as a writer. I also do print on demand on Amazon via their Amazon Merch on Demand platform and sell books through Amazon's KDP platform. I do love the written word, as you can tell since I have two blogs. But I also love starting new projects. If one doesn't work out, I can quit it easily and work on those I enjoy working on. I come from a working-class background and I'm transitioning to a self-employment role. Why? Because I like being in control. I want the responsibility and the rewards of controlling my own life in all the aspects I can - including careerwise and financially.

I have two years of experience in e-commerce and selling things on platforms like Amazon.com. I've also been editing and creating content on the internet in my spare time for over two years now. From blog posts to videos for social media platforms like YouTube and TikTok, I've created content and marketing content - mostly for myself.

Thank you for coming along on the journey and I hope to keep you informed and entertained!
