How to be a successful freelancer despite your fear of failure



Are you afraid that if you try, you’ll fail? Or embarrass yourself, or be the only one that can’t land clients? I get it. I spent the first 20 years of my life terrified to try anything new because I was afraid to fail. I really get it and that’s why in this episode I am sharing how I found success as a freelance despite fear of failure.

I’m not here to tell you to get over your fear. Instead, in this episode I’m sharing how to be successful WHILE you’re fearful and what tools you can use to help you keep moving forward.

There’s no time to ‘wait to be ready’ – not when we’ve got babies to raise and 9-5s to leave! After listening to this episode, head on over to the Live Free Podcast Mastermind to find the thread for this episode. Share with me what one thing you’re doing to move forward today! Thanks for listening!
