Lucy Hitchcock shows you how to build, maintain and totally own a career that you love in Winging It - the podcast! Whether we're chasing our dream career, or running our own thing there's one thing we all have in common - we feel like we've got no clue what we're doing. How could someone make me a manager? Am I qualified enough to run my own business? How can I bag that dream job I've always been after? Am I ready to take a leap of faith and quit my 9 to 5? And one of the biggest questions of all - 'do I have what it takes to do what I love and make money from it?'The Winging It Podcast is all about taking that imposter syndrome, grasping your success with both hands and running with it. Success means different things to everyone, and after quitting my corporate agency marketing Job in 2015 I finally found my meaning of success. No it wasn't getting my first customers and having money in the bank, but turning up to my desk at 9am every day to a job that I LOVE and that I thrive at (even though half of the time, I do feel like I'm Winging It).The Winging It Podcast is here for business babes and savvy career women to help you learn how to build, maintain and totally own a career that you love with a heavy emphasis on prioritising your own wellness to live your happiest life. I've got some incredible business owners and career babes lined up to share their expertise and business stories with you for some helpful tips along the way!

The final attempt failed. Matt, a freelance photographer, was in debt, frustrated and desperate. The story made the national press and freelancers reached out with similar tales.

1. From unemployed to self-employed: my business Journey.

Welcome to Winging It! I'm Lucy Hitchcock and I want you to live your happiest life by having the career of your dreams. It's safe to say I've had a turbulent career - going from unemployed, to intern, to employed and made redundant all in the first year of my career. I then set my sights on a totally bespoke career path and took the plunge into running my own business and working for myself. Working for yourself isn't an easy career choice by any means and I go from one day to the next by totally winging it. In the first episode I'll be going into depth about my career to date, how I pulled myself out a job I hated and started my own business. Once I did this I began living the happiest life I've ever had. Sure your career can be stressful, but if you love what you do you really will never have to work a day in your life!My Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lucyhitchcock_/Sassy Digital's Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/sassydigital/Music by The Edit Album - bit.ly/theeditalbum See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
