Brittany’s Freelancer Story: Overcoming a Perfectionist Mindset

Many freelancers struggle with the constant need for perfection, which leads to procrastination and missed opportunities. Instead of making progress towards your goals, you find yourself stuck in a cycle of self-doubt and fear of failure.

My guest Brittany Gardner had a discouraging job experience that left her feeling undervalued and underpaid. She’s a UDMA School grad, a Digital Marketer’s Workgroup member, and a Certified Copywriter. She’s worn many hats including managing a Starbucks while finishing her degree, creating digital marketing plans and websites for multiple nonprofits, and planning 300-person retreats. She helps small business owners and digital creators who crave an organized, creative, and strategic approach to their overall online presence.

Tune in to hear Brittany share about

  • her UDMA School experience
  • shedding clients who didn’t align with her values
  • how she found better clients who value her work
  • the significance of not having expectations during slower months
  • her journey of overcoming challenges and self-doubt

“You have to have the faith to move forward and overcome that imposter syndrome. Once you do, you’ll realize you’re capable of so much more than you think.”
