EPISODE 18: SHOW NOTES
Today is a special day… because we are bringing on another LFM student to share not only how my OTO program has helped launch her freelance career, but also to share with us all of her knowledge and wisdom on cold calling to the right people to land clients for your freelance business.

I am a nurse turned businesswoman who enjoys cold calling and the chase! I started as a VA in early 2018 and within the first 3 months had 9 clients and since then I have added 6 more! My passion for sales began while working for a Medicare Home Health Agency. I had to walk into Doctor’s offices and get through the gatekeeper to speak to the doctor about why my Agency was the best. The first time was terrifying but thrilling and I have been hooked ever since! Now it has become a game for me and it truly is addicting!
Dalaina’s success in our program
She signed up for the program in March of 2018, and in less than 3 months was making over $2,500 working part-time hours from home!
Initially, she joined because she looking for a way to be able to keep her daughter out of daycare and still be able to contribute to her household income.
Her biggest lesson learned since starting her own business: I deserve this. I have worked my butt off my whole career for others and I finally am putting that effort into me and my own business. Believe in yourself & never set a limit for yourself!
What she says about how the course has impacted her: All I have ever wanted to be was a mommy, so when my husband and I found out we were pregnant, I spent months racking my brain on how to keep her out of daycare. With the help of Micala and the program, I had the tools and encouragement I needed to make the jump and start my own business!
