We get asked all the time about how we get clients and beat imposter syndrome, so today’s conversation is about all things designer confidence and overcoming the ego. If you’re a designer looking to improve your relationship with your work, sell confidently and/or redefine success, this is an episode you won’t want to miss!
We open our chat sharing the last time we felt totally confident in taking on a design project and the last time we felt totally incompetent. Then, our conversation moves to a good discussion about mindset and forming our businesses around what we really want out of life. We talk about becoming self aware, setting intentions, and the importance of not measuring our worth through material things.
Jen shares her story about leaving a great job in NYC and redefining success for herself. We discuss the importance of detaching self worth from both our failures and successes (which, as you probably know, can be super hard for us as creatives). Jen also shares snippets from her “hype folder” (you’re going to want to make your own after this episode)!
We finish our episode talking about the best ways for designers to organize and manage their businesses. We discuss the value of setting up great systems for our teams and Giselle shares all about her new ClickUp for Designers course!
Giselle and Jen got #real in today’s episode and are so excited to be sharing their best advice for designer confidence and overcoming the ego. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
