When it comes to taking control of your finances, many of us are seeking out new opportunities to make money. Flexible careers offer creative ways to make money on your terms. Thanks to technology, more and more companies are open to remote workers, telecommuting, or a hybrid between remote and in-office time. Now more than ever before, you can choose a career opportunity to fit your lifestyle so that you can finally have career happiness.
Here to help us better understand all of the flexible working opportunities available is Brie Reynolds. Brie represents FlexJobs.com, a website and job resource that curates all of the available flexible working opportunities from across the globe. You will be surprised to find that remote work opportunities are not just for transcription or customer service! You’ll find listings like “Remote Neurosurgeon” and “Hybrid Business Administration” among their wealth of listings. Today, Brie will explain Flex Job’s process, and why their site is unique. Flex Jobs truly has the job seeker in mind, so if you are looking for a bit more freedom in your schedule, this is the cite for you!
Flexible working is so much more than working from home. It also means that, if the employer is open, that you can work literally anywhere in the world. Financial freedom might look a lot like choosing your own schedule and work environment, and I think that is pretty great. Brie is on a mission to help you discover career happiness, and that is precisely what ProfitBoss Radio is all about!

Everyone loves an unlikely success story. We are often told that anything is possible and these success stories give us all home to chase our dreams. Still, we need to make money and pay the bills. Dreams just don’t feel very lucrative. Is it possible to turn your dreams into reality?
Today’s guest embodies what it means to be an unlikely success. Cathy Heller didn’t come from much, had a little education, and no idea about how to make it in a career. It wasn’t likely that she would make it big in her career as a songwriter, but Cathy persevered. Using her creativity, Cathy figured out a way to market her skills by selling songs to Fortune 500 companies. Now, she has an incredibly profitable podcast, Don’t Keep Your Day Job, where I have been a guest.
Today, I am turning the microphone on Cathy so that she can tell us how she found her unlikely success. Her biggest lesson for everyone is that, with a little ingenuity, we can turn almost any passion into a money-making enterprise. Cathy is going to share the scrappy actions and mindset shifts it took to make it in a competitive field. Never one to be content where she is, Cathy then turned her success into more opportunities to use her gifts. Now, Cathy represents other artists who want to license their music, teaches courses about licensing, and hosts a profitable podcast.
That may sound like a lot, but Cathy’s unlikely success is about small steps in the right direction. It’s about never settling for less than she is worth, and you and I can take that advice right to the bank.

Don’t Keep Your Day Job Podcast
Welcome to the 100th episode! It feels surreal that my initial dream to start a podcast has transformed into a movement of women taking ownership of their finances. While more and more women are feeling empowered by their wealth, a whopping 71% of women still have all of their money in cash. Investing feels like some kind of impenetrable black box, and for many of our listeners in the middle of their financial growth journey, it can be cost prohibitive to take advantage of a financial planner. I’ve been listening to you, the ProfitBoss community, and I have developed a service that will start your investment journey with the same level of service and confidence I give my own clients. Here it is: Ignite Investing!
Ignite Investing would not exist without the dedication and hard work of Jen Rupp. Jen has a degree in Economics and Finance, over a decade of experience in financial planning, and the same vision to help women start their investments with a strong foundation. Over the past 9 months, Jen and I have developed the Ignite Investment platform, a space for women to get the exact same premium service that we provide at Hilary Hendershott Wealth Management without the $500,000 savings minimum. You will have access to a custom portfolio, real-time investment advice, and the backing of several investment agencies that have withstood the test of time. If this sounds like the next step in your journey to financial freedom, you do not want to miss this episode. Jen and I are going to explain how Ignite Investing is not only possible but an incredible value as well.
The vision of the ProfitBoss Radio community is to empower women with tools to start making decisions about their finances. Ignite Investing is the natural next step for many of our listeners. Apply today, and start making your money work for you.

Everyone has an opinion about sales, and for many, that opinion isn’t very positive. However, if you’re an entrepreneur, you’re in sales! There’s no way around that! Despite some reservations about it, we all know that a career in sales can be very, very lucrative. So if you’re looking to increase your income this year, this episode of ProfitBoss Radio is a must-listen. Judy Hoberman is my guest today, and she is sharing with us her lessons learned from a 30-year career in sales.
What surprised me most about this interview is that Judy is very clear sales isn’t about kitschy closing lines or being manipulative, it’s about building a connection with people, asking the right questions and doing the right thing. You’ll love the way Judy makes sales seem warm, friendly and accessible. Judy has experience in just about everything from education to insurance. She even did a stint as a roofer!
Now, Judy is transforming her years of experience into actionable tools that her clients can do to boost their sales. As always, her focus is never on building a script or crafting closers. Instead, Judy wants to take the very natural way that women can build trusting relationships and turn that into a selling superpower. Judy believes that, in a sense, everyone is in sales in some capacity, so I think every ProfitBoss listener will benefit from the incredible advice Judy is bringing to the show today.
