Kelly Cairns was on maternity leave from the National Health Service, and she found herself getting restless. She started looking for work-from-home jobs in the pre-social media era, and started landing gigs through online forums.  Along the way, she learned how to make the most of technology and build online businesses.

Now, at The Tech Angel, and through her membership, the WordPress Academy, she helps tech-scared female entrepreneurs find the confidence they need to put their businesses online. She helps them narrow down their options, simplify their workflows, and conquer their fear of technology.

Today, Kelly joins the podcast to tell the story of how her boredom as a young mother became the fuel she needed to transform her life, how she turned her learnings as an aspiring entrepreneur into the tools so many women like her needed, and the beauty of letting go of your fear and going all-in on what you really love.
