Do this instead!! I’m sharing with you today an exercise that I include in my program Overwhelmed to Overbooked for all freelance moms.
Confidence is such a crucial component in putting yourself out there and landing clients. But it is super hard to be confident when you have never done this before, right?!
Lack of confidence is TOTALLY normal!
First, let me say that lack of confidence is 100% normal for just about EVERYONE in the beginning. Especially new and beginner freelance moms! Why? Because it involves doing something different, getting out of your comfort zone, and if you are listening to this, you probably have not launched a business before or if you did maybe it did not go so well… and this is a NEW adventure, a new business, and maybe that brings uncertainty and fear.
Fears are normal in the early stages of starting a business, but I want you to realize that fear is not necessarily a bad thing.
Fear shows that you care about your work and the value you provide to your clients or potential clients.
Fear is what drives you to prepare and research and land awesome clients.
But fear can become a BAD thing when you let it control your life and prevent you from trying new things or opportunities because you’d rather be safe.
Ultimately, you don’t need confidence. What you need is courage. Because confidence comes with time and experience, in showing yourself and everyone around you that yes! You can do this!
But to have that solid proof to get started, you have to be courageous enough to try. If you’re looking for an excellent resource to jumpstart your confidence and build your portfolio, start with my free guide to freelancing!
