Freelancing Around the World with Erin Booth, Virtual Assistant
By Elizabeth Dunne
Joining me for my very first episode is Erin Booth - an amazing freelance virtual assistant, digital nomad and course creator. Erin is SO good at what she does that she teaches others how to work the same magic. Her secret sauce? Freedom. If you're thinking about making the jump to freelancing, or are a new freelancer, there's a lot for you in this episode! Erin is a digital nomad and for the last five years, has travelled the world, taking her business with her. Erin launched her own VA business in 2012, waaaay back before virtual assistance was 'a thing'. She made a few mistakes - such as saying yes to everything - and found herself exhausted and overworked. Thankfully, Erin is a very smart cookie and figured out a way to max her time and her income. In this episode, we talk about the best (and worst) advice we've both been given about freelancing and how she and her wife marry travel with full-time freelance careers. We have a laugh about the fact that Erin and I are polar opposites when it comes to work - as freelancers often are. I prefer to stay in one place and Erin prefers to travel. Who's doing it right? We both are. Duh. Thank you for listening! If you'd like to be a guest, head over to startswithf.com and let me know!
