For many writers and creatives being new and having no portfolio to show is a huge problem. Fortunately, the solution is simple but easily overlooked. Mostly it’s a shift in mindset.
I recall these feelings myself when I was getting started in copywriting. I’d taken some AWAI classes and had written marketing materials in the past. But when a prospective client asked me to share my portfolio, I had an attack of imposter syndrome.
Panic converted to fear and settled in as stress. The shallow breaths weren’t helping. Fortunately, I was taking a business-building class with Joshua Boswell, and he was also providing some coaching.
