Starting out with a regular job at a US based company, Hisham quickly found out that as a creative designer, he badly wanted freedom and space. And that wasn’t possible with average 9 to 5 job. So he started freelancing on the side in 2007 and soon went solo to provide web design/development services to clients on freelance marketplaces like Elance, Freelancer and Guru.
“In my opinion, if you can monetize your passion, it is far better than a full time job and working for someone”, said Hisham in an interview with ProPakistani.
In the last 5 years though, he has narrowed his focus to only Guru and it’s proven to be a good decision. In a very short space of time, he’s earned more than $1 million in profile sales and been given exclusive coverage in testimonial on front page of Guru.com. He’s also among the top 10 freelancers on the portal.
Right now, Hisham employs 20 people and provides services in the web development, graphic design and mobile application domain.
