Five years ago, I was an overworked and underpaid teacher, barely making enough money to cover the cost of daycare (and at the time, I only had one baby! I don’t know how we would pay for 3 under 4 + big girl school now!)
Being a SAHM wasn’t in our budget, so I needed to find a job that was flexible, financially secure, and for real. I tried everything — an Etsy biz, baking on the weekends, I even dabbled in the MLM world. Nothing clicked.
Until I found freelancing and became a virtual assistant.
Not gonna lie — it wasn’t an overnight success. There was some trial and error along the way, but in less than a year, I tripled my old teacher take-home pay working half the hours.
I didn’t spend thousands of dollars on a flashy Website or invest in many training programs. Instead, I used the skills and experience I already had as a teacher to land clients and ran their businesses as efficiently as I ran my classroom. And now? I’ve taught thousands of women –- teachers, nurses, corporate managers, HR reps, stay-at-home moms — how to replicate my success. This is real. And it’s possible for anyone looking to end the family vs. finances battle.
