How do I get started? What if I fail? Who will hire me? Is it really possible to create a consistent, full-time income from home? Welcome to the Live Free, Mama podcast where we will be answering these questions PLUS many more! Whether you’re just starting your freelance business (heck even if you don’t know what freelancing is yet) or you’re looking to scale, this podcast will give you tangible business advice along with inspiring interviews to help you create a life and career that works for YOU and YOUR family. Your host, Micala Quinn, started out teaching high-school English, but when her first child was born, she immediately began searching for something more. She wanted a way to stay-at-home with her daughter (and future babies), but still needed to bring in a full-time income to help support her family. Micala started freelancing, quickly replaced her full-time income, and now helps other moms (like you) get started and grow their freelance business from scratch to 5K and beyond! She believes that being a working mom or a stay-at-home mom no longer needs to be a black and white decision. You CAN have both. On your terms! Our motto is Mom Strong, Work Smart, and Live Free. Are you in? We’d love for you to join us each Monday and Wednesday, as well as in our Live Free, Mama Facebook community micalaquinn.com/community.
