190: WAHM Success Story: How this WAHM doubled her income in less than 1 year with Chelsea Hall


EPISODE 190 Show Notes: How to Double Your Income as a Freelancer


Are you ready to hear how this former teacher started freelancing and doubled her income in less than 1 year? Today I am chatting with Chelsea Hall, owner of Chelsea Hall Social – her Pinterest Marketing business. Chelsea was a first grade teacher for eight years and truly enjoyed it but was feeling burnt out and wanted to be home with her daughter more. Chelsea heard about OTO, bought the course, and dove right in and not only replaced her teaching income but doubled it in less than 1 year. 

Chelsea is a toddler mama, wife, Michigan native, and now a Pinterest strategist who supports female teacher entrepreneurs.

We chat all about how Chelsea landed her first client within 2 weeks of buying the course, how she got started in Pinterest, and how the OTO community helped her succeed in her transition of switching careers. Chelsea’s life looks different now with her flexible schedule building a business she loves. Chelsea reminds us that this is 100% possible! Listen in to hear her story about how she got started and is thriving in this online space.

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!
