Welcome to The How She Quits Show – Episode 7
Not all of you are here to quit your day job. You’ve chosen to be a stay at home mom for multiple reasons that make sense for your family. But you want to quit stretching that single income so far! You want flexible work that accommodates a family routine.
We’re going to show you the simple steps to go from Homeschool or stay at home mom, to having some extra income in just a few hours a week.
In Episode 7
I’m visiting with Claire Crum, a Homeschool mom running a successful Virtual Assistant business all while maintaining the flexibility her family routine requires. My interview with her covered many great questions and topics those looking to enter into the Virtual Professional industry want to know, and because I know you are all busy moms (and efficiency is my love language) we’ve got time-stamps for you to jump to your burning questions.
