Contributing to The Niche Movement has been a fulfilling experience from the very beginning. This opportunity has helped me grow as a writer, and hone in on my niche so much so that I’ve launched a new business because of it! I’ve connected with some of the most passionate people you will ever meet and am inspired daily by the dedication from TNM contributing editors. I can’t recommend this experience enough!
