Good afternoon MOGULS! I'm hoping to eventually break from my corporate full-time job in pursuit of what I love: writing, editing, writing coaching, content curation, content development, social media, copy writing and making a difference. I want to live a life where I'm excited about Mondays, not just the weekend.  

The main thing holding me back from taking the leap is HEALTH INSURANCE. So, to my fellow business owners, gig economists and freelancers out there...how do you do it?  Did you join a union? Did you bite the bullet and purchase a high premium/high deductible plan? Are there health insurance secrets I am unaware of? 

I'm 31. Live in Philadelphia. No kids. No spouse. 

Thank you for your insight!

    I admire your courage and think it's great you want to take this leap. Life is too short not to find happiness. I know some people who have risked not having insurance for a while but I do recall seeing freelancer's insurance out there. It might have high deductible but it is better than nothing in case of an emergency @M.A. Rodabaugh
