Sharon has to be my number #1 on this list, she is absolutely killing it. I first met Sharon at a Problogger conference a few years ago, she was running the travel blog “Where’s Sharon” and she had some big dreams which made me initially think “yeah yeah, every blogger wants success” but this lady showed us all! She created Digital Nomad Wannabe, which provides GREAT information for new bloggers and seasoned bloggers alike and earns a great income doing what she loves. Keep you the great work this year Sharon!
