Tom Kuegler is a full-time vlogger, but it wasn’t always this way. After graduating college and doing 20 job interviews, he got sick of trying to convince corporate America he was worth anything–so he started freelancing. Nine months after he started freelancing he began contributing to big sites like the Huffington Post and made enough money to go on a 5-month solo road trip across America. He visited 24 new states, lived in San Francisco for 2 months, and then came back home and started blogging about the lessons he learned. A year later he had 10,000 followers on Medium, started selling online courses, and said goodbye to freelancing entirely. A year after that, a video he made for Facebook went viral and received 3,000,000 views in 2 weeks. He’s made 7 videos with 1,000,000+ views so far. Tom now has over 200,000 likes on his Facebook page, lives in the Philippines mostly making new vlogs, selling his courses, writing on Medium, and helping others achieve social media success and develop their story.
