Wondering if freelancing is right for you?

As you may know, I have made over $1 million in my business every year for the last five years, but when I started my business, it looked very different.

I actually started out offering my services as a freelancer! I offered Facebook and Instagram ad services and grew it to over $260,000 in just two years.

Freelancing is an incredible opportunity to start and scale your own business quickly, and in this episode, I’m sharing how I did it and how you can do it too.


In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why I decided to start a freelance business
  • What happened when I focused solely on Facebook and Instagram ads
  • How niching down actually brought in more referrals for my business
  • Why freelancing is such a great business to start if you want to scale quickly

Freelancing is an amazing opportunity. Even in the first two years of my oldest daughter’s life, I managed a six-figure freelancing business and a seven-figure online course business all during nap time, and you can do it too!

hi, i'm Anna!

I went from $200,000 in student loan debt to running a multi-million dollar online business in less than 5 years. Along the way, I realized Mondays can be great, stress doesn’t equal success, and you’re capable of more than you think. Now, I have the privilege of helping other ambitious individuals realize their potential and build their dream business and life.
