It was a massive mindset shift for me to go from being Ruth Gilbey the freelancer and contractor to Ruth Gilbey Marketing and Coaching the business. So while it's fresh in my mind, and I'm still feeling all those bumps and all that impostor syndrome, I wanted to share my journey with you.
A healthy mindset (that you continue to work on), is the essential thing you need to make a move from a freelancer to a business owner. I realised this was the critical component that I needed to continue to work on to keep building my business. For me being a freelancer and working for other people was the much "safer" option, but I wasn't learning or reaching my potential by staying as the contractor or employee.
