15. Cultivating a Consultant Mindset with Bec Hughes


Show notes

In this episode of Women Wealth WordPress, I chat with Bec Hughes, a mentor, brand strategist, and designer, to discuss the importance of cultivating a consultant mindset. Bec shares valuable insights into the psychology behind decision-making and the art of confidently leading a client through the entire project. 

Bec emphasizes the need for preparation, setting boundaries, and making confident decisions in business. She shares real-life examples of challenging client interactions and offers practical advice on handling potential hurdles. Alongside her expertise in the creative industry, Bec also opens up about her personal journey of regaining confidence and managing her time as a mother.

This conversation was a timely reminder of the power of owning your expertise, celebrating successes, and developing confidence as a freelance designer. 

Guest bio

Bec Hughes is a mentor, brand strategist and designer, podcast host, blue-sky thinker and mood lightener (when it’s needed).

She’s also a bit (OK a lot!) obsessed about connecting the dots between creative and business.

Bec cringingly admits to well over 20 years’ experience in the creative industry as a brand strategist and creator, as well as growing her own successful brand consultancy over the past 8 years.

And she’s a broken record when it comes to supporting and inspiring designers to feel and be more valuable so they thrive in business, sanity and creative mojo intact.
