193: WAHM Success Story: From SAHM to Director of Marketing with Bekah Hebdon


EPISODE 193 SHOW NOTES: Pivoting to Director of Marketing Freelancer


On today’s episode, I am chatting with Bekah Hebdon. Bekah is a SAHM turned Virtual Assistant/Social Media Manager and is now transitioning into the Director of Marketing role.

From starting her freelancing journey and landing clients while finishing up her degree while pregnant and raising small children, Bekah had the drive to make freelancing work for her and her family. Bekah is finishing up her Director of Marketing certification while working with her current clients. She chats with us all about how she landed her clients and how she learned the skills to make her feel confident as a freelancer, even with no prior work experience. 

Bekah shares about how she decided to pivot into that Director of Marketing role and shares the difference between a Director of Marketing and Virtual Assistant or Social Media Manager.

Bekah is an inspiration and shares how if this is something that you want to do, “jump in scared!” It is completely worth it! Take action. Put yourself out there and “jump in scared”!

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!
