191: WAHM Success Story: How this WAHM started freelancing and was fully booked in 2 months with a newborn at home with Richelle Villalta

 

EPISODE 191: SHOW NOTES

 

Richelle worked in the corporate world for nearly 3 years but learned about freelancing and everything changed. She went through the OTO program and built her business throughout her maternity leave. She was determined to make freelancing work for her and she landed 4 clients within 2 months meeting her income goals all with a newborn at home. She says that she applied for over 30 positions in that 2 month time frame where she was trying to land clients and though it was hard if she didn’t get a position, she was determined to make freelancing work for her. And that she did. 

Richelle chats with us about her journey to landing those clients, the work that she does now, how she learned her skills, and how the freedom and flexibility is so different in the freelancing world vs. working from home at her previous job.

Richelle is now offering VIP days and growing her certifications for personal growth within her business. She reminds us that even when we feel like we don’t know where to start and how to do it all – just start. She says, “Stop telling yourself you don’t have the skills and don’t know what you are doing. Just start!”

More about the Live Free Podcast with Micala Quinn:

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!
