S02 E03.5: Facing money fears & financial uncertainty in your creative life

In today's mini episode I'm digging into a topic that comes up a lot in both my own journey and the conversations I have with my coaching clients each week too. That topic is money, and more specifically the fears and uncertainty we face as creatives when we're in charge of making our own living along the way. I'm sharing with you how I face those money fears and move past them, in the hopes that it can be a jumping off point for you to do the same. 

Learn to trust yourself and your ability to do what you’ve got to do to pay the bills. We are not entitled to make a living doing what we love. We have to build smart, strategic, and purposeful brands that we’re willing to evolve with along the way. But more than anything, deep in our gut we have to believe in ourselves and our ability to do what we need to do to make this work.

For me, money is a tool but it’s not the focus. It’s a by-product of pursuing a life that feels authentic, meaningful, and purposeful to me.

Where you can find Jen:

We all need people who are rooting for us. Maybe it’s family, or friends, or creative partners in crime. Maybe it’s a mastermind group, or a coach, or a mentor - whoever it is, surround yourself with people who understand what you do, who believe in the value and worth of your work, and believe in your ability to make things happen along the way.
