Freedom Makers was born in 2015 after I had been running a recruiting business for two years. I noticed many small business owners were not ready to commit to having an employee, even part time. Revenue fluctuations were often too unpredictable and there was a reluctance to take on the responsibility for managing someone else. They wanted and needed help, just not full time help.
Meanwhile, due to my experience in the military, I knew there was an under-tapped resource of talent in the military spouse community. I would look around during my active duty time and see spouses that had an awesome work experience and strong education but were limited due to duty stations and constant moves.
I had no idea the journey I was embarking on when I formed Freedom Makers and I am incredibly grateful and proud for what we have built. The company has grown to a company of 4 employees and over 130 Freedom Maker virtual assistants all over the world! We have so much more to go for sure, but we have built a solid foundation.
