    • Entrepreneurship

Brand designers, website designers, and people who want to be a brand and website designer — this one is for you. When you’re first getting started as a designer, it can be absolutely confusing as to what you need to do and how to do it. If you went to college for design, they likely did not teach you any of this business stuff in college. You might be struggling with confidence in yourself that you can do this thing solo. Maybe you’re a self-taught designer, and that can come with all kinds of doubts. Basically, there is a lot going on, and it can be really overwhelming. First I want to say: You’ve got this. You’ve chosen an amazing, fun, exciting, and much-needed field to go into. You’re gonna love having a design business. But, there are plenty of myths out there about starting and running a successful business as a designer. These myths are likely holding you back from really getting going, getting clients, and making money as a designer. This episode is all about BUSTING the 3 myths I commonly see new designers (and even more seasoned designers) believing. These myths could be holding you back from booking clients and seeing results.
