Here’s what you can expect from this episode:

In today’s episode, I hit you with some hard truths on what it takes to actually make money as a social media manager. Nope, you won’t be making it rain overnight, but you can grow your business quickly by being able to prove to potential clients that you can deliver the results they’re looking for. 

So, how is this possible? What do you need to do to start making money and how can you do it correctly so it’s sustainable over the long term? Well, you don’t need a fancy degree or certificate, you just need to develop your skill-set and showcase it through your portfolio. 

Once you’ve got a steady roster of clients, you’ll find that you’ll hit an income cap and face inevitable burnout from creating content, answering emails, posting and engaging. At this point, you might want to give up, but there’s a way out from here! 

It’s time to start scaling your business. There are tons of ways to do this and I go through these in more detail in this episode! So listen on if you’re ready to build a successful and sustainable business, because without a solid foundation it could all come crashing down.
