Fire Up Your Creative Courage and Reach Your Audacious Goals


It’s a funny thing — so many of the most gifted and capable people wrestle the hardest with impostor syndrome and self-doubt.

And often, the biggest barrier between you and your ambitious goals is your own head.

This week, we offered resources to get your confidence kickstarted and your creative brain humming.

On Monday, Stefanie Flaxman explored why the hardest working, most professional writers aren’t always the ones who jump into freelancing. (If this is you, you might be a lot better at it than you imagine.)

On Tuesday, Pamela Wilson shared eight effective ways to bring powerful visual elements to your content — even if you don’t think of yourself as a “visual person.” This is a great way to add polish and impact to your work, and it’s easier than you think.

And on Wednesday, I announced our new book club selection — Austin Kleon’s Keep Going. If your creative energy ever flags, you aren’t alone — and Austin is here to help us keep our output (and confidence) strong.

On Copyblogger FM, I talked about a few hurdles good writers can face on the way to getting great clients — and how to overcome them.

The Writer Files featured part one of Kelton Reid’s interview with Elizabeth Ann Atkins, who shared her journey from Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist to groundbreaking novelist, ghostwriter, educator, TV host, and health & wellness expert.

2019 is an amazing time to run a small or solo business, not least because we have so many nifty tools to help smooth the way.

If you’re looking for some software to make your freelancing practice easier, Brian Clark has a new series on Unemployable called Essential Tools for Freelancers.
