Episode 250: WAHM Success Story: Britt Jackson’s journey to freelancing as a single mom


Happy Monday! I am back with another WAHM Success Story today. On today’s episode, you are going to hear from Britt Jackson as she shares her journey to freelancing as a single mom. Britt is the owner of Georgia Creative which is a consulting agency for admin and operations for business coaches. Britt shares her journey from starting as a Virtual Assistant in 2015 to where she is now. This episode is a great one if you are a single mom and want to learn more about how to make this work for you too! Tune in to hear more!

Britt shares her story of where she was prior to freelancing, working as a nanny and being let go from that position when she was seven months pregnant to when she started freelancing and was able to earn a full time income all by herself as a work from home mom to where she is at now, the executive director for a nonprofit and offering freelance services as a Director of Operations for several clients as well.

Britt’s story is so inspirational! Whether you are a single mom or not, there is something to take away from this episode. You CAN do this too!

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!
