Episode 227: WAHM Success Story: How Erika Kramer went from Teacher to Virtual Assistant




Are you ready to get started as a virtual assistant but worry about landing clients? On today’s episode, I am chatting with Erika Kramer. Erika shares her story on how she went from teacher to virtual assistant. She shares how it took her a little while to find her first client but with persistence and consistency, she was able to land clients and then land quite a few more after that. We chat about discovery calls, how Erika landed those clients, what she does for her clients, and Erika even shares tips that helped her land clients. Ultimately, she talks about how she is living the dream – working from home and being a mama and how she is thankful that she is able to do this!

Erika’s story is a reminder that if you build your solid foundation and work hard to do this, you can!

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!
