SFF137 Fashion Freelancer Q&A: I feel like I’m losing my skills and confidence…

If you’ve ever felt rusty or worried that you’re losing your edge in your fashion career, this episode is for you. Tina is a freelancer in Germany. Coming from the activewear category, she now exclusively designs workwear, and loves it! But will her workwear clients notice that she’s “lost” her activewear skills? And how can she get them back?

In the interview (which you’ll love), we will cover:

  • Have you really lost those skills? 
  • How to explain a change in category to your clients
  • Ways you can maintain your knowledge of one category while working in another
  • How to get practice–and validation!–in another category (WITHOUT working for free!)
  • How to restore your confidence in your skills
  • The value of going beyond your comfort zone in your fashion freelance career
  • And more!
