EPISODE 212 SHOW NOTES
Is the looming recession causing you to worry about the future of freelancing? In episode 211 (part 1), we talked about the worry you may have about the future of freelancing. If you haven’t listened to part 1, check it out here and then come back and listen to this episode.
In this episode we are taking it a step further and I’m talking to those of you who may be more established in the freelancing space. I want to share with you how to handle the ups, downs, and different seasons in your business. I don’t share the ups and downs with you to scare you but I want you to be prepared that there will be ups and downs in business and that’s ok. I share some information in this episode to help prepare you for those ups and downs and different seasons.
I share with you the 2 things you need in order to not just survive but thrive when challenges come your way a business owner, information that I found from a newsletter and how you can apply that to your freelancing business, suggestions to share with your client during this time, and preparing for a business pivot depending on your industry.
I believe that we will continue to see freelancers thrive with the new opportunities and different industries that are growing throughout the next year.

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!
