Make a difference. Make a profit.
Having run my own advertising agency in South Africa for 10 years, I sold the business and went travelling for 6-months to decide what to do next. Driven by the idea of being able to earn an income on the internet, that allowed a business owner freedom from a geographical location, I have experimented, tested and refined various online business models over the past four years.
The main focus of the businesses within The Freedom Fighter network are building engaged communities on the internet and the creation of businesses that use the web to teach. I believe that every person has the ability to teach something, and that the internet allows you to reach users anywhere in the world in your specific niche.
