69: WAHM success story with Kim Werkmeister


Most of the women I talk to are dying to quit their full-time job, but not all! That’s why I’m bringing one of my fabulous students on the show today, video editor Kim Werkmeister!

Kim is a full time musician who wears a lot of creative hats! She taught herself how to edit video for her music career and realized what I need there was. I loved hearing how Kim is using freelancing to accomplish her goals and how she could grow her business in the future as her family changes.

In this episode, we cover how to utilize personal connections when you are just starting out, how to create the business you want, and how your business will continue to pivot.

Freelancing is a solution for moms wanting to quit their jobs, just make a little extra money, or anything in between! Each of us has our own goals and therefore there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution! As Kim says in our interview – you just have to get out there and try.

Thanks for joining me today for another WAHM success story! Show Kim some love in the Live Free Podcast Mastermind (especially for singing for us on demand!) Talk to you soon!
