FREELANCING!
Wait... what exactly is freelancing?!
I’m glad you asked! A freelancer is someone who operates as an independent contractor- meaning you’re the boss!

Freelancers can have specialized skill sets or they can work as virtual assistants- taking over the various miscellaneous tasks a business owner might have at any given moment.

Freelancers
set their rates & hours & can work from just about anywhere- it’s the perfect way for moms to stay home with their babies & still earn an income!
No matter what your background is there is a freelance service you can offer & help business owners out with…
Here are just a few ideas of what you could offer and do as a freelancer:

Virtual Assistant
 WHAT IS A
VIRTUAL ASSISTANT?
 
A Virtual Assistant is a freelancer that takes over the administrative & overflow tasks for a business. And your main job as a VA is to save the business owner time by executing the tasks and projects they assign to you.

Your role as a VA will most likely look different for each client because every business and business owner is different with different needs. However, the one thing that remains the same is the client will be assigning you tasks and projects & you'll get them done!

Many beginner freelancers love to start as VA's because they're able to get experience in a variety of things, allowing them to figure out what they love doing (and don't love doing, so they can niche down and specialize down the road.
 WHAT DOES A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT DO? 
Some of the main tasks VA’s handle are administrative (things like email inbox management, scheduling social posts, updating the calendar, etc.) and customer-service tasks (responding to DM’s, assisting in Facebook groups, etc.).

In most cases, the client will tell you what they need help with and train you on any necessary systems or software they use.

This could include tasks such as:
check
Email inbox management
check
Customer management (replying to emails that come into a business)
check
Solving technology problems
check
Managing customer orders
check
Organizing Google drives
check
Data Entry
check
Recording KPIs
check
Scheduling social media posts
check
Doing research projects
check
Creating social media graphics
check
Creating slides
check
Taking a Google document and turning it into a branded pdf
 HOW MUCH CAN YOU CHARGE? 
Most virtual assistants charge an hourly rate and sell a retainer package of hours. Typical hourly rates for virtual assistants can range from $25-$40 an hour. And most clients purchase a package of 20, 30, or 40 hours of support a month.

So you can take your hourly rate x the number of hours in the package and you can charge anywhere from $500 - $1600+ per client.
Social Media Manager
 WHAT IS A
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER?
 
A social media manager helps clients manage their social profiles. In this day and age ALL businesses need a social and online presence, but that takes time and skill... a lot of businesses outsource this part.

A social media manager’s role is to implement a client's social strategy (plan) across different platforms. As a social media manager, your client will provide the overall strategy and/or plan for the account and you just execute.

This is different from the social media strategist's role which is a high-level social media service where the freelancer provides the overall plan and strategy for the account. A lot of freelancers who are creative and love social media already will start as the SMM role and grow into the strategists role as they get more experience and comfortable as a freelancer!
 WHAT DOES A SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER DO? 
Some of the main tasks Social Media Managers focus on are:
check
Creating a content calendar
check
Writing the captions for each post
check
Sourcing or creating the visuals for each post: branded still photo, graphics created in Canva, short video (reel or tiktok) filmed by the client
check
Scheduling and/or posting the content
check
Engaging with audience
check
Evaluating the effectiveness of content & reporting key metrics to the client
As a SMM you DON'T have to be an expert on the client's industry & can repurpose their blogs, podcast, and youtube channels to create social content!
 HOW MUCH CAN YOU CHARGE? 
Most SMM's will charge based on a set # of deliverables each month & estimate the total cost of the package based off of their ideal hourly rate. Rate ranges for SMM's is anywhere from $35 an hour to $100+ depending on experience + results from previous clients.

For example, let's say a basic package could include: Content calendar, 13-14 posts a month (3 per week with 4.5 weeks a month) including the caption, visuals, & scheduling, & a monthly report. The estimated time to complete this is approximately 18 hours... Round up to 20 for a nice even number and starting out a basic social media package could be $700 per client per month.
Graphic Designer
 WHAT IS A
GRAPHIC DESIGNER?
 
A graphic and web designer can encompass a lot of different aspects. Graphic designers are tasked with helping clients develop the look and feel of their brand, as well as creating images, graphics and other visual deliverables that reflect a client’s brand, while web designers take the brand and create the website.
 WHAT DOES A GRAPHIC DESIGNER DO? 
Some of the main tasks graphic designers focus on are:
check
Brand Identity Development
check
Logo Creation
check
Creation of various deliverables: ebooks, pdfs, presentation templates, social media graphics, flyers, pamphlets, invitations etc.
check
Landing page design
check
Web Design
check
Take feedback from clients and revise the deliverables
You do not need a graphic design degree to be a graphic or a web designer! In fact, a lot of the graphic designers I know in the online space do NOT have a degree in graphic design. They are self-taught! It all starts with the first project and grows from there! If you have an eye for what is and is not aesthetically pleasing, you can get started as a designer!
 HOW MUCH CAN YOU CHARGE? 
Like SMM graphic design is typically packaged and priced based on the specific deliverables and not by hour, but they use their ideal hourly rate to help determine the total cost.

For example, let's say a basic package could be a 3-page web design. Let's say each page estimate to finish is 3-5 hours. Take 3x15 = and you get about 15 hours for a 3-page website from start to finish. Take 15 times your ideal hourly rate... $35 is a great spot for just starting out. $35x15 = $525 or about $175 per page. With each site completed and happy client, you can bump up your prices too! This is one of my favorite things about being self-employed as a freelancer -- no more 1% raises that don't even equate to the rise in cost of living.
Podcast Manager
 WHAT IS A
PODCAST MANAGER?
 
A podcast manager keeps a business’s podcast running by editing podcasts, publishing episodes to hosting sites, writing show notes, promoting the show, and promoting the podcast host as a podcast guest.

All these roles take a lot of time and skill, so many podcast hosts look to outsource some or all of these roles to an editor or podcast manager - myself included!
 WHAT DOES A PODCAST MANAGER DO? 
EDITING Normalizing the volume, editing out silence, taking out verbal mistakes, & reducing background noise are all part of the editing process. This part of the process can be time-consuming!

UPLOADING Each episode needs to be uploaded to a hosting platform before putting it on platforms like Apple or Stitcher for listening. (I use Libsyn for hosting the Live Free Podcast!) The audio files, a short description, and show art are all uploaded every time there is a new episode.

AUDIOGRAPHICS Editors pull out pieces of the podcast and match an audio stream to that snippet of the podcast. Then the editor creates a graphic and makes the entire audiographic shareable on social media to market the show.
check
Starting a podcast
check
Prepping copy or writing interview questions.
check
Setting up an RSS feed
check
Recording the show
check
Strategizing ideas for new shows
 HOW MUCH CAN YOU CHARGE? 
Like SMM & graphic design, podcast management is typically packaged and priced based on the specific deliverables and how long and how many episodes are produced per month.

Let's say a basic package could just be the editing & uploading for 4.5 podcasts a month and each episode is approximately 30-45 minutes long. Each episode will take roughly 3x as long as the audio content to edit and publish. 45 minutes x 3 x 4.5 episodes = about 10 hours. You can bump this up to 15 to include show notes for each episode. Take 15x your ideal hourly rate ($35 is a good beginning for new podcast managers) and you have $525 per client per month!
Online Business Manager
 WHAT IS AN OBM? 
Online Business Managers or OBMS are essentially the sidekick or right-hand woman to the owner or CEO in small solopreneur businesses. The owner is the ideas and the OBM is the details and makes the ideas happen person. An OBM helps to manage the business and works directly with the owner to help make their ideas come to life and ensure their goals get accomplished.
 WHAT DOES AN OBM DO? 
Five key areas an OBM might oversee are:
check
Strategic planning
check
Team delegation, management, & hiring
check
Project management
check
Systems and automation implementation
check
Finance & KPI metric analysis
People who have these skills from their corporate careers like to start out here, but also virtual assistants who love the backend of the business and wants to develop into more of a leadership role with their clients will specialize in this service as they grow.
 HOW MUCH CAN YOU CHARGE? 
Like VA's, OBM's typically charge per hour. But it's a much higher hourly rate. While admin work caps out at about $40 an hour, OBM's start out charging around $50 an hour and can go up with experience & certifications.

A normal OBM role is about 30 hours of support a month x $50 an hour, a basic starting out OBM package could be $1500.
Copywriter
 WHAT IS A
COPYWRITER?
 
A copywriter creates the written content businesses need. There are two types of copywriting. There's copywriting & then there's content writing. Copywriting is persuasive & sales-focused. Content writing is educational & informative.

Freelance writers do market research and may even conduct interviews of a target market to create copy that will speak to the client's ideal client or customer. Another side of freelance writing is to do copy audits and look at businesses' current messaging across all platforms, website, and social media, and assess if their copy is staying on brand and conveying consistent messaging.
 WHAT DOES A SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER DO? 
Copywriters write:
check
Sales Page
check
Website Design
check
FB AD Copy
check
Social Media Captions
Content writers write:
check
Blogs
check
Article
check
Informational Social Media Posts (carousel posts)
 HOW MUCH CAN YOU CHARGE? 
Copywriters typically charge a starting at or a flat rate price for each job. As a copywriter you might base your packages off a $50 an hour price point. There is no limit to what copywriters can charge. I've seen ranges for copy projects range from a few hundred to thousands of dollars per project.
Freelancing is for YOU if you want to:
Create a sustainable, profitable business- with the skills and free time you currently have!

Step AWAY from the never-ending cycle of googling & stressing about which side hustle could finally set you on the path to financial freedom
Stop trying to choose between work & motherhood. You can do both!
Hi, Micala Quinn here.
WIFE, MOM, & WORK-AT-HOME MOM TEST CASE.
Seven years ago, I was an exhausted, desperate mom willing to try anything if it meant I could stop crying in the daycare parking lot after dropping my daughter off at school and crying at home when my husband said “absolutely not” to my stay-at-home-mom dreams.

You know all those cliche, WAHM jobs? Been there, done that. Or at least...it felt like it as I desperately jumped from at-home baking biz to trying my hand at making hair bows (spoiler alert: it was a giant fail. And almost 8 years later my daughter still refuses to wear any accessory that actually….ya know...matches her outfit!)

When I finally found freelancing, I doubled my old teacher salary in less than a year (and slashed my work hours in half)...working where, when, and how I wanted. I turned in my resignation, picked my daughter Mclaren up from daycare for the very last time, and never looked back.

Seriously. That was one of the happiest days of my life & the best decision I ever could have made.

I didn’t spend thousands of dollars on a flashy Website or invest in hundreds of 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.

The Live Free Academy

When everything you need to launch a business- from the boring legal/tax info to the super-fun branding exercises- are all in one place...success isn’t only inevitable...it’s lightning fast!

Today, over 3,500+ women have utilized my revolutionary program Live Free Academy to quit their jobs, land dream clients, and do it all with their families by their side!

You are not crazy or entitled for wanting something more. Something different than the path we were told to take our entire lives. What is actually crazy is that it’s taken this long for mothers to finally decide enough is enough.

Are you ready to transform your life and build a business you actually love? 

No more sacrifice. No more stress.

It's possible. And you can start right now.


BUT DON'T JUST TAKE IT FROM ME...
"I quit my job a year ago and decided to take Micala's course. I am an online business manager, working 25 hours per week plus 10 by a subcontractor I hired! Did I mention I am being paid 1.5X what I was before?!"
I think the key to success at this is being able to figure things out and having the confidence you can figure it all out no matter what. Be positive. Do not force things. Never give up on making your life work for you. It is so empowering.”
"Today I signed my final client that will put me at nearly double my teaching salary, working about 30 hours a week across 4 clients.”
I started the program in September and have been working with 3 clients since October. I took the leap, resigned from teaching, and will be done in May. Today I signed my final client that will put me at nearly double my teaching salary. Working about 30 hours a week across 4 clients.
I am so so grateful for Micala and her course and THIS GROUP. Keep applying + shoot for the stars; I signed this last client at a rate I would have never ever ever thought possible!
"I. DID. IT! I quit my teaching job and am doing this full time!" 
I’m so thankful to Micala and her course. I’m so proud of myself! I can’t wait to have a more flexible schedule and be home with my little one more. 11 more days of teaching until I’m done! 🎉
"I am so grateful for the way my business is able to be so STABLE for us, growing as necessary to take care of our family."
January of this year, I launched VIP days as a course creator. Then a week and half ago, my husband got notice that he no longer had his job. The week following I was able to really pour into my business and no joke, within 7-8 days I was able to book enough work for March via VIP days to make up my husband’s portion of our income.

If I had still been teaching, there’s no way that would have happened. I am so grateful for the way my business is able to be so STABLE for us, growing as necessary to take care of our family while my husband figures out what’s next. I am so thankful for the support of this group and all that Micala has built here!
"I’m officially booked! My clients are a mixture of local clients and jobs from the platform! "
Well ladies it officially happened!! Even to the point of having to turn away offers! I have been a part of this community for 1.5 years doing it as a part time gig. I left teaching this May and now I'm a full time VA.
"I am officially fully booked! I just had the best Discovery Call with another dream client. I can't believe it! I started the course four months ago, landed three clients a month later, and now have my fourth!"
I was the queen of impostor syndrome when I started this, and while I still don't know everything, I DO know that I can figure anything out. I am so grateful for this course and for Micala and all the wonderful women here in this group!

The Live Free Difference.
Maybe this isn’t the first time you’ve heard about launching a freelance business. Let’s be real...there are tons of programs out there offering super similar trainings and results as The Live Free Academy.


How do you make a decision? Aren’t they all the same?


Absolutely not!

Training programs often fall into one of two categories… 
Launched their freelance business less than one year ago. It was successful. If they can do it...anyone can! They launch a training program with no results from other students, no guarantees, and no in-depth knowledge of industries, skillsets, and experience levels different from their own. Oof. I have over five years of experience and a proven plan that gets results- over 1000 women have used my program to transform their lives! And they are definitely not all working with the same skillsets or experience levels! The vast variety of the LFA alum speaks for itself- this is more than just a training program for one kind of woman seeking one kind of career. No matter your niche, passion, or vision for your business—my training leads to success.
Person B is an expert. They have flashy sales pages, amazing video tutorials, heck they’ve probably even published a book! Shouldn’t you invest in that freelance guru over some mom typing this while her 3-year-old draws on himself with permanent marker?! Here’s what they don’t tell you. Many times, those impressive guides are where the guru’s instruction stops. No additional support or resources. There’s no one to reach out to when things get tough or confusing. They focus solely on telling you what to do that they never show you how to do it. The reason the LFA alum are so insanely successful in all corners of the freelance market is because we dive deep. We dive deep together. And we do it over and over, every step of your freelance career.

Shouldn’t you invest in that freelance guru over some mom typing this while her 3-year-old draws on himself with permanent marker?! Here’s what they don’t tell you. Many times, those impressive guides are where the guru’s instruction stops. No additional support or resources. There’s no one to reach out to when things get tough or confusing. They focus solely on telling you what to do that they never show you how to do it. The reason the OTO alum are so insanely successful in all corners of the freelance market is because we dive deep. We dive deep together. And we do it over and over, every step of your freelance career.


"I have been working full time as a freelancer for a little over a year now and as of this month, I will be consistently hitting $5k months working 15-20 hours a week!"
When I left corporate on maternity leave last year, my only goal was to make at least $2k a month and have flexibility to work during nap time. Now I’m doing exactly that while more than doubling my original income goals. All of my clients are retainers with a mix of hourly & packages. And the best part is I decided I was going to make $5k a month and don’t have a boss telling me no.

Meet Molly!

"Take the leap if vou are wanting to be your own boss. This program is awesome and I'm so glad I did it."

Molly works 15 hours per week as a virtual assistant. Molly met her two biz besties through the program. They keep each other motivated and on track within their businesses!

How much time does it take to fully complete the Live Free Academy?
Allow me to put on my former teacher hat here and make one (probably obvious!) disclaimer: every student is different! I can’t give you an exact, precise, absolutely guaranteed time for how long it would take to complete LFA because it’s going to be slightly different depending on your circumstances and perfectionist tendencies. 

But my best estimation is somewhere between 15-30 hours, start to finish. 

Some ladies finish in a week, some finish in one month, others take a little bit longer. It’s all going to depend on how much time you have! 
How much money can I REALLY make?
How exactly can you hit your income goals? And when? How do you price it out? How many clients will you need? Start here with our examples! See what's possible with your pricing and client structure and see just how fast your can meet your exact financial goals!

Meet Raechel!

"You choose what freelancing looks like for you. You don't work for any one else's schedule but your own and bring home a great, steady monthly income"

Once joining Micala's program and implementing Step 5, 'Connect & Find Potential Clients', Raechel landed her first client within 2 weeks!

Clients 2&3 followed shortly after and she now makes more than she ever imagined while maintaining her role as a SAHM, working only during nap-times!


"I quit my 9-5 and now work completely remote!"
I want to thank Micala Quinn for lighting a fire inside me! 🔥
I seriously cannot thank you and the ladies in this community enough.

Meet Laura!

“Don’t let fear hold you back, you can do it. The work I do now is fun and it gives you the freedom to be your best self.”

Laura joined Micala's program back in 2021.
In less than a week, she finished the course and landed her first official client in April of 2022! Once she landed her first, the rest started rolling in. 

She is now fully booked and is making more than she did as a teacher! Her favorite part about being a freelancer is she no longer experiences the morning hustle of rushing out the door.


The LFA Guarantee
I know this program is an investment, but I also know it has the potential to transform your life for the better.

But it’s still risky to trust an online stranger, believe in yourself, and go for it.
I get it.

When you step inside the Live Free Academy - I promise to provide you with every level of support you need to make freelancing work for you. This program is intentionally designed with multiple levels of support across platforms to give you access to the coaching and encouragement you need.

In addition to the trainings, templates, weekly live coaching calls, monthly challenges, job leads, and student community connection you can instantly access, I am always here if you need additional 1:1 support.

If for some reason this isn’t enough … reach out and my team will help find a solution.


I'M ALMOST READY... I JUST HAVE A FEW MORE QUESTIONS!
No problem, check out the FAQ below.
Don't see your question answered? Shoot us an email at hello@micalaquinn.com.


What is a freelancer?
A freelancer is someone who operates as an independent contractor to help small or online businesses grow. You might have a specialized skill set (like graphic design, social media marketing, or copywriting) or you might offer virtual admin support. As a freelancer you set your own rates, run your own business, set your hours etc. My course will help you build your business from scratch- including helping you find clients!

As a freelancer you set your own rates, run your own business, set your hours etc. My course will help you build your business from scratch- including helping you find clients!

You will receive your login information to access course materials shortly after you complete your purchase.

It depends, because everyone has different goals. Some women find clients in a couple weeks and others take a couple months. The average is around a month!

Of course! One entire step in this program is dedicated to helping you select the right services! We also focus on helping you create your packages and pricing, so you know what to charge!

Unlimited access to course content (you can go back and review and rewatch any time you want!) and 6 months access to Group Coaching Calls, Course Community, Guest Expert Trainings, and Exclusive Job Leads - yes there is an opportunity to continue with the resources after 6 months!

Absolutely! About half of the moms in our program are SAHMs and the other half are working moms looking to replace their full-time income. We even have a few women who aren't moms yet, but are planning on starting their family soon and want to have the freedom to be home when they decide to start having kids! As a SAHM you can build your business and your work hours around your kiddos schedule!

We won't let you! If you follow the steps outlined in my course, seek help when you need it, reach out when you are stuck, you will be amazed at what you are capable of! But what happens if you don't even try? You'll sit there wondering what could have been.

Yes! There are two main routes we focus on in the course: facebook groups and the local market. Both are great options to find clients and we will show you what to do in each situation to land clients. That being said there are TONS of businesses out there and each day more people are creating online endeavors, growing their shops, and hiring support to help them grow! The course group regularly shares job opportunities and I even have a hire form setup to funnel leads into the group!

Everyone's story is different, but there are multiple levels of support to help you be successful. From group coaching calls, course content, and the private Facebook community the steps of the program are proven.When I say no member is left behind I mean it. But you are going to have to take responsibility. You have to show up, complete the course, implement what I teach and reach out when you get stuck or need help
That really depends on how much you want to work and what you are charging per hour or per package. If you have a goal in mind in order to quit your job or to start supplementing, an easy way to figure out your earning potential is to see how many hours you have to work a week and multiply that by your hourly rate. So, if you are charging $30 an hour and have 20 hours to work a week, you could bring in around $2400 a month. However, as a freelancer the opportunities are endless! As your skillset and business grows, you have the freedom to raise your prices and restructure your packages so that you can work the same and start making more, or work less and make the same! It's totally up to you! We have moms with a variety of goals in the course group, some are looking for an extra $500 a month & others are making over 5K per month.

It totally depends on the amount of time you have to devote to the course. I recommend trying to complete one step per week. There is a fast track option I talk about in the program- some women have finished in as fast as one week. However, you do not have to complete the program to find clients and start making money! I will show you how to start taking on clients while you are still building!
