Are you ready to hear how this former teacher started freelancing and doubled her income in less than 1 year?
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.
We chat all about how Chelsea landed her first client within 2 weeks of buying the course, how she got started on Pinterest, and how the OTO community helped her succeed in her transition of switching careers.
Life looks different now with her flexible schedule building a business she loves. Chelsea reminds us that this is 100% possible!
