How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As cliche as it may sound, one of my favorite things at LeafLink is that no day is ever the same. I’m excited to go into the office every single day to see what the day brings. At LeafLink, EVERYONE has a voice. In addition to the breakout success our service saw in California, my life also drastically changed. I saw my earnings increase over 300%
