Starting Your Web Design Business Successfully with Jamila Jones

Ep. 161 – If you’re interested in starting your own web design business this year or finally going from side-hustle to full time, I’m willing to bet you’re probably super excited and completely terrified at the same time…and that’s ok!

I remember well that my apprehension came from viewing other professional web designers and agencies who are so far along in the journey and are talking about 6-7 figures and I was just wanting to know how to get started.

Well, in this podcast episode, I’m so excited to bring in one of my amazing students, UK based web designer Jamila Jones, who is early in her journey but is making ALL the right moves.

In this chat, we cover her tactics for starting her business, how she started getting her first few clients, how she learned web design and refined her processes, how her mindset has already started shifting as a business owner and how she’s balancing a new business while working from home.

While it’s awesome to talk with seasoned entrepreneurs, web designers and business owners, it’s equally valuable to get into the mind of someone who is early in the journey and Jamila is such a great example of how to get started in web design THE RIGHT WAY. She shares some invaluable tips and lessons in this chat that I wish I would’ve heard early on.

If you’re just starting or even if you’ve been at it a while, I know you’ll walk away with so many great takeaways from this one!!
