Is this you? You’re good at starting projects but struggle to finish them on time or within budget? Is it scary and frustrating, trying to explain your designs to clients? Do projects suffer from scope creep, an endless cycle of tweaks and design revisions? Your rates are low, but you worry increasing them will push people away? Work feels like it controls you, and it’s tough to feel confident in your abilities.
This could be you: Doing the work you love, getting paid what you’re worth and feeling inspired by what you do. Everything will start fitting together as you impress people with a process that delivers projects on time and earns you more. Clients approving designs faster, with fewer revisions, and viewing you as the expert.
