Well Hey There Fellow Human,
I know not my usual intro. But I want to make a point. I’m Hil the writer behind Immensely Social. I’m a real human with emotions and a life and business and a family and lots and lots of things to do. I get tired and inspired. I have fears and dreams. I believe in getting dressed for work even when working from home but sometimes I don’t. Currently rocking an oversized hoodie and my workout leggings.
You caught me! It’s my human side.
You also are a human reading this, unless you are the…
I had the pleasure of interviewing Dan Stelmach CoFounder of ChangeEd. ChangeEd is an innovative app that allows students to Superpower their spare change to pay off student loan debt by rounding up everyday purchases to the next dollar and setting aside that money for additional payments.

ChangeEd’s journey has included SharkTank and investment from Mark Cuban. Learn more about that here.
Thank you so much for…

I don’t really take vacations. Six months in and my husband and I have yet to go on a honeymoon. While I would love to it’s not really in our financial goals or time commitments at the moment.
But when I found $25 in an envelope recently, given to us at our wedding, I thought why not put that towards one night at a B&B instead of just a dinner out.
After all, while we had adjusted from dating to marriage beautifully, these few months had been challenging circumstantially. We have both been sick on and off, my husband hurt…

There I was sitting on my couch listening to the late and great Jim Rohn. He was talking about how crucial confidence is to your success. But, “How do you become confident?” he asked the audience.
Yeah Jim, how?
I think I actually asked that question out loud to my TV screen. Waiting on the edge of my seat for some great wisdom from this successful speaker.
And then, my dear Jim went on to talk about how confidence comes from the daily stuff we do. Not groundbreaking. It is a simple truth.
Daily Disciplines Build Self Confidence. Jim Rohn
It starts with a beach scene.
Tan legs under a laptop. Painted toenails pointed at the sea with an exotic drink close by.
It looks exciting and relaxing. But it’s not the norm.
Being an online entrepreneur, freelance writer, digital nomad, or whatever other labels you want to give this work from your laptop lifestyle, it is well…work.
