Featured: Side Hustle to Six Figure Freelance Business

by Laura Briggs | Season 1, Episode 11

In this episode, I am joined by speaker, author, and freelance writer, Laura Briggs. Laura started freelancing as a side hustle, before realizing it was something she could turn into a career. She began her online freelance career in 2012 and has worked with clients all around the world. Laura scaled her business to six figures and now works with aspiring and successful six-figure freelancers as a coach. Today, Laura shares her thoughts and advice to freelancers just jumping into the game.

Find Your Space, Find Your Voice in Freelancing

With Sara Caso Conde

In this episode, I welcomed Sara Caso Conde. Sara has what many of us strive for, her dream job! As the director of consultant services at MBO Partners, she helps independent talent, freelancers and consultants. Known internally at the company as the ‘independent consulting therapist’, Sara works with consultants on everything from setting up their business from a legal and tax perspective, redlining their contracts, helping them with their website, and positioning themselves to work with larger firms. She helps independent talent from all over the spectrum, whether they are just beginning, early in their career, or later in their career. Sara realized she had a deep subject matter expertise, but it dawned on her that she wasn’t taking her own advice. So, she found her space and was able to find her voice.

 More About Sara

Sara has 15 years of experience in developing, selling, and optimizing programs designed for both sides of the independent consulting equation (e.g., Fortune 500 enterprises and elite independent talent). Inspired by her freelance clients, Sara recently started a sales consulting business, Sara Caso Conde, LLC. In addition to her LLC, Sara is responsible for talent-facing products and services and acts as a brand ambassador on behalf of her employer, MBO Partners, Inc.

Meet The Host

I’ve been called a pioneer in the world of uniquely-talented people who feel empowered to go beyond conventional jobs and create businesses from unique vantage points and perspectives.

I have a guiding belief that those working for themselves deserve the same respect, access to benefits and opportunities for growth as those working for corporations. It’s what drives my tireless fight to ensure this growing population of Independent Professionals are lifted up and celebrated for their courage and willingness to live their lives according to a new set of rules … their own.
