Do you have a big creative idea in the back of your mind that you’d love to make a reality, but somehow you just can’t seem to get yourself together to get started on making it real?
As online creatives, we have a running list of creative projects we’d like to take on, sometime soon or maybe further down the line. Because hey… we’re dreamers + that’s just how our creative minds work.
But thinking about those big creative ideas - whether it’s starting a blog, launching a podcast, creating a new service, reaching out to those dream collaborators, or maybe even taking your creative side-hustle full-time - brings out a *lot* of scary feelings.
Perfectionism (“I’m not good enough + can’t do this perfectly!”)
Imposter syndrome (“Who am I to do this?”)
Approval seeking (“What will they think?”)
Fear of putting yourself out there (“I can’t show the real me. People will be put off!”)
Comparison (“They’re so much further along than I am. I’m so behind I can never catch up!”)
And this leads to perfectionism-induced paralysis + procrastination.
That’s exactly what my client Annette was struggling with when she contacted me about working together through my Ditch Perfect + Take Action coaching program.
And now, 3 months later, I’m just so in awe of Annette + so proud of how far she's come in the last few months: becoming the face of her business, creating a content marketing plan from scratch and implementing it AND creating 3 digital products for her community.
Let’s dig in a little deeper to see how Annette made the amazing progress she made.
