Episode 252: Tips on Getting Hired as a Freelancer with Lesley Pyle, Founder of HireMyMom.Com


Hey there! On today’s episode, I have Lesley Pyle, founder of HireMyMom.com, a website connecting moms seeking work from home with small businesses seeking virtual professionals. Lesley came on the show today to share tips on getting hired as a freelancer. She has been in this space for over 25 years and has great tips to share and she has truly made a serious impact on my life. In fact, my very first client came from her website. 

Lesley shares what it was like for her when she got started in the freelancing space over 25 years ago and how she started her business and what it looks like today. She even has her oldest daughter working with her on her team! 

Lesley also shares valuable tips on standing out from other applicants on job boards with customized emails specific to that client. She also shares how you truly have SO many skills no matter what your background is and freelancing can work for you too! Lesley also shares some tips on the interviewing process like being confident and highlight what you can do for the potential client without downplaying your past experiences.

This was an incredible conversation and I was so happy to have Lesley on! I’d love to hear what you thought of today’s conversation on Instagram (@micala.quinn)!

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!
