How did you get into SEO?

I got into SEO because I was working on rebranding a horrible website with tons of irrelevant content.

You want to have quality conversations and quality content on your site. Lastly, You want to surround yourself with people of high values and authority, similar to backlinking strategies.

What is your proudest industry achievement?

My proudest industry achievement is just the mere fact that I'm where I am being a self-taught SEO. Although I'm no superstar, I give myself flowers for not giving up and looking/feeling like a fool just so I could get a grip on the craft.
