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 Podcast with Micala Quinn 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, as well as in our Live Free Podcast Facebook community micalaquinn.com/facebook. To check out our show notes go to micalaquinn.com/blog.

    What you need to start and scale a freelance business

    What you need to start and scale a freelance business

    Do you feel like you need to know more to start or scale your freelance business? After talking with many of you I've learned that the idea of needing to learn more, do more, or be more is exactly what is keeping you from starting or going to the next level in your business.
    So in this episode of the Live Free Podcast, I am giving you a big dose of motivation and inspiration to go after your big dreams by starting with what you have and where you're at today.
    We are covering how to choose your service when you don't think you have any skills and how to handle imposter syndrome or that thought in your head that says, "Why would they hire me?!" Plus, I also share why business owners choose beginners over experts.
    Thanks for hanging out with me today! DM with your questions or send me an email at hello(at)micalaquinn.com! I'm here to help.

Changed My Life

Thank you, Micala for sharing your knowledge and experience. After taking your course and listening to the podcast, I was able to leave my day job and take control of my potential. You are honest and helpful, and I thank God for leading me to your podcast.
