Episode 258: WAHM Success Story: How Chelsea Johnson surpassed her corporate income as a Virtual Practice Manager



Hey there! Last week was a whirlwind for my family, but I’m so excited to be back this week with another inspiring WAHM success story. Today, I am chatting with Chelsea Johnson. Chelsea is a LFA alum who is sharing about how she surpassed her corporate income as a Virtual Practice Manager for naturopathic doctors. Chelsea is a mom of three. Her kids are 12, 6, and her youngest is turning 1 this summer!

Chelsea joined the Live Free Academy and started building her business while she was working full time and pregnant with her third baby. She continued hustling through her maternity leave so that she could quit her job by the time her leave was finished… and she did! Now, she works from home and gets to enjoy slow mornings every single day.

Chelsea shares about how she discovered her niche and uses her degree in health administration as a Virtual Practice Manager. She shares hows she landed her clients and became fully booked out. She even has a waitlist and huge goals to expand!

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!
