When you think Small Businesses or Entrepreneurs, you typically will not categorize freelance writers into either group. In the “gig economy” it is reasonable to try freelance over keeping a staff writing position. But Dan Hyman takes this to a whole another level.
Dan is a freelance journalist based in Chicago, Illinois. He has written articles for publications including Rolling Stone, New York Times, Esquire, Playboy, ELLE, GQ, Men’s Journal, NY Mag’s Vulture, The Chicago Tribune and more. He previously served as a blog editor and has assisted in both editing and researching non-fiction books.
Dan earned a Masters degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
He interviewed some big names:
D’Aangelo and Bobby Seale (Co-Founder of the Black Panthers)
Chance the Rapper
He started on his own six years ago and had never looked back.
