278: WAHM Success Story: How Julia Perinovic Met Her 6-Figure Income Without Sacrificing Her Work-Life Balance




Hey there! Today we’re talking with Julia Perinovic about how she met her 6-figure income without sacrificing her work-life balance

…and, she did it all within 3 months! This is a Student Success Story you’ve got to listen to!

Struggling with Her Work-Life Balance

Julia had 10 years of experience as a project manager and executive assistant before beginning freelancing. She started her career in the real estate industry in Los Angeles, and then pivoted to tech in San Francisco. Julia worked from home full time, but not all work from home opportunities are the same! She was in meetings all the time and constantly needed to be available to her employer. Though remote, her career lacked the flexibility and freedom she needed to be present with her toddler at home with her.

Julia started researching other options, found the Live Free Academy course, and finished it super quick, within a week. 

In today’s episode, Julia talks us through how she landed three clients in 90 days, using a different route to land each client. She also shares what her work week looks like and how she works at home with her daughter.

How Julia Set Her Rates and Met Her 6-Figure Income

If you are worried that freelancing is not for you because you make too much and you think you’d never be able to replace your current income freelancing, this episode is for you!

Julia set her rates with her skillset and previous background in mind. She encourages that being a beginner to freelancing does not mean you are a beginner in general. You’re bringing all of your past experiences with you and can price your services accordingly. A price point may seem like a high price to you, but your future client sees it as a value and a way to gain back their precious time. Listen it and learn how Julia was able to match her full-time 6 figure corporate salary while working part time hours. 

In this episode, we cover:

  • The different routes Julia used to land 3 clients in 90 days
  • How Julia set her rates confidently
  • What Julia’s work week looks like with her daughter at home

You’ll love this episode if:

  • You’re struggling to maintain a work-life balance at your current 9-5 
  • You’re interested in freelancing but concerned you won’t be able to match your corporate income

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!
