We can all agree that no matter what you have going on – life can get really busy sometimes. Between your job(s), freelancing, social life, family life – the list goes on – it can get so difficult to keep track of everything while building a freelance fashion career. Productivity and time management skills are quintessential to your success in the fashion industry and beyond, so this is a major talking point on today’s episode of the Successful Fashion Freelancer podcast.
While pregnant with her second child and already raising a 3 year old, working, and freelancing, Lindsey knows how crazy life can get. We cover advice on balancing your career and family responsibilities mom-to-mom, as well as all things fashion freelancing – including finding your niche, searching for clients, and refining your pitches to make yourself more attractive to a brand while needing to do less customer research.
Lindsey grew up in Phoenix and attended the University of Arizona in Tucson. She studied Costume Design until later finding she would have to take an acting class as part of her electives, which wasn’t her kind of creative outlet. Consequently, she switched into Studio Art with an emphasis in Printmaking and minored in Business.
Her first love has always been Visual Display, though design in general is Lindsey’s passion. Lindsey feels fortunate to have done design in a variety of capacities like display, merchandising, and now fashion design with a focus on children’s clothing and sustainability.
