FreeeUp is a gem for all new freelance writers and people in need of a writer.

Founded by Nathan Hirsch and Connor Gillivan have an awesome story that starts when they met in college.

They started selling online old college textbooks to pay the bills.

Flash forward, they grew it steadily into a $25M business and hired a ton of outsourced folks along the way. They learned a ton and taught themselves how to spend wisely, invest in the business, and invest in human capital which they later began another business, FreeeUp!
