Brittany’s Start to Freelancing
With a 5-year-old at home, Brittany was a SAHM and ready to work. Not wanting to give up any time with her son; however, Brittany started looking into options on how to work from home.
After learning about freelancing, she found a coach who said she would teach Brittany how to freelance from home. Brittany quickly realized that this person she had paid to coach her was a scam! Once the coach received Brittany’s money, she never heard from the scammer again.
Feeling down on her luck that freelancing was all a scam, she gave up on it. Then she started seeing the LFA program with all of the testimonials of real women it was teaching and helping to learn to freelance. Brittany then started listening to the Live Free Podcast, which led to her investment in the Live Free Academy.
Brittany had heard about social media management and wanted to start providing services as a social media manager. So she started her freelance business offering SMM services to clients and landed her first client within 1-month.
Brittany quickly realized that social media management wasn’t for her. The constant engagement, content creation, and repetitiveness of it all were not what she wanted to do.
So, she learned about Pinterest and took on a new client offering Pinterest services. She was enjoying it but not loving it, and heard this client comment on her Podcast manager which piqued Brittany’s interest. She had no idea that was a thing!
Brittany reached out to the Podcast manager to learn more and eventually decided that was what she wanted to be doing.
Finding a Niche as a Podcast Manager
Brittany describes her transition from social media management to Pinterest to podcast manager as messy.
Her first SMM client and Brittany mutually agreed to end the working relationship.
However, the Pinterest services client stayed on with her. Then she signed another Pinterest services client that also needed podcast management help. This helped her with transitioning from Pinterest to podcast management and eventually led to landing clients that are only in podcast management.
How Brittany Lands Clients as a Podcast Manager
Brittany believes many people are hiring for these specific jobs in every niche.
She found her clients from networking in Facebook groups. And even as she has pivoted her business from social media management to podcast management is still finding her clients by networking on Facebook groups.

Since her clients are course creators she is starting to get into the strategy as well. So she is helping to build a strategic plan to get leads to purchase her clients’ high-ticket offers that will convert.
Learning How to Offer Podcast Management Services
Brittany says she learned Pinterest from taking a course online that taught her the basics. Then learned about podcast management from Lauren Wrighton’s course, which she describes as wonderful if you want to learn about podcast management.
She suggests, though, that it is best to take the Live Free Academy course first if you are starting out in the world of freelancing. Because it teaches you the basics of starting your business, it taught her how to set up her business as an LLC, learn about taxes, and other basics of starting her own business that the niche courses just don’t teach you. And you can learn about offering multiple services until you figure out what exactly you want to niche down into before you invest big money in a niche course that teaches you how to become an expert.

The Challenges In Starting a Freelance Business
Brittany describes her biggest roadblock in becoming a successful podcast manager when she first started transitioning her business. After booking out with four clients within a matter of 2 months, she lost all four clients for different reasons. And almost gave up, thinking this wasn’t for her.
Instead, she changed her mindset and decided she didn’t want to give up. So instead, she redid her website and pricing and decided to uplevel her packages to premium packages. Within a few months, Brittany had booked out with premium clients and doubled what she was making before!
