Hi, I’m Wendy Miller, founder of Free Spirit Freelance. I’m a single homeschooling mom. In my “free” time, I enjoy meditation, yoga, reading, and spending time with my wonderful family (two teenage sons, an incredible life partner, and an adorable pre-schooler).
I first toyed with the idea of working for myself in 2009, when I was laid off from a job and severely broke my ankle before I could find another job. At the time, I was scared to take a chance and ended up putting it on the back burner.
Over the years, I’ve been a stay at home mom, a working mom, a work at home mom, and a homeschooling mom – and often, I’ve been homeschooling and working at the same time. I’ve also been a published author of three novels (one contemporary romance and two romantic suspense) and a volume of poetry.
The seed that became Free Spirit Freelance came from a dear friend who suggested that, with all the different skills and talents I have gathered over the years, I work as a VA. After some research, Free Spirit Freelance was born. That same friend became my first client.
But I didn’t want to just be a VA. I wanted to help people that I thought could benefit most from my services – moms. I know how hard it is to work and raise your family at the same time. For many years, before I met my soulmate, I raised my children as a single mom while working. So I know that sometimes, you feel forced to choose one or the other – care for the kids or care for the income that sustains the kids. That’s where I come in.
I’ll do more than just manage your social media or check your emails. I can hold your hand and help you find motivation on the days you feel like giving up. I can brainstorm with you and help you create programs, systems, and strategies to grow your business and give you more time with your family. And when your family needs you, I can step in and hold down the fort while you are loving and supporting them, so that you can return to a business that hasn’t lost any momentum due to your absence.
And if you’re a creative mom? If you’re a mom that offers your talents as a meditation teacher (I’m one, too!), yoga instructor, healer, author, or other artistic or creative industry, I’ve got you. I understand that you might have outside-the-box tasks that need to be done. I get that you might not be as organized as a business major or CEO, and that you might ask me to handle things at the last minute.
I’m here to support you, your business, and your family as you work to ensure that all three grow and thrive. I’m here to provide whatever you need, big or small, short-term or long-term.
Reach out today so we can talk about those needs. Let’s get you the help you need so you can take a breath and relax.
