Have you hit a plateau in your creative business?
If so, you're not alone.
These findings paint a picture of career freelancers who get a good start in the early stages of independent work but who hit a plateau after about five years.
In fact, recently people signing up for my free mentoring session are looking for help to get over the hump after 10 or sometimes 20 years (or more) in business!
Here's what they say:
"I'm at the point now where I'm aware of my strengths, weaknesses and feel comfortable with the experience, skills and education I gained throughout the years. I am now ready to build a real business, the right way. A business that can run even if I'm not the one doing the work."
"We've been in business for years and have done little to no marketing. Its all been word of mouth and we've done very well but we feel like we could be doing more."
"I've been on my own for more than 10 years and I'd like to pursue higher paying clients overall. I'm potentially onto a niche but am struggling with how to grow and need practical advice."
