Caitlin McDonald and Amber Irwin Social Speak Network

Amber and Caitlin are now the center of our interview series.

Though the stories how how we started freelancing differ, the key takeaways are the same. They start with us taking a leap of faith, knowing our values, listening to our target market, and focusing on our strengths rather than trying to tackle everything.

Our ability to run full-force into our new endeavor certainly paid off as we quickly built a six figure freelance agency and even last year experienced a 40% increase in business.

Today, Caitlin and Amber teach freelancers across the world to grow and thrive.

Aerie Lane Tarpon Springs Florida

I had the pleasure of interviewing these two amazing sisters that decided to take the leap of faith and invest, not only in themselves but in their future by opening a new franchise called Aerie Lane. In this interview you will learn:

  • How these sisters are able to work together, divide and conquer.
  • Splitting roles while one left corporate and runs the day to day and the other is still working her corporate job.
  • Playing off each other’s strengths to create an amazing partnership!

What is Aerie Lane?

Aerie Lane is about gathering with friends, creating with inspiration, and connecting projects and people in creative ways. Each time you construct a project by hand, you share a part of yourself with others.
