5 Goal-Setting Strategies Every Freelance Makeup Artist Needs

Aleksandra Pinneri

October 5, 2023

From my experience, blending corporate smarts and an immigrant’s hustle, goal-setting has been my compass. If you’re tired of feeling directionless and stressed about the new year, goals can be your freelance career’s best friend. They’re your roadmap to hitting income targets and magnetising your dream clientele.

5 Essential Steps to Skyrocket Your Freelance Makeup Career Through Goal-Setting

  1. Sharpens Your Focus: Clear goals help you zone in on what you really want. Whether it’s cracking a booked out wedding business or becoming Insta-famous, a well-defined goal helps you make smart choices. For example, if weddings are your jam but your portfolio screams “special occasions,” you might miss out on your ideal clients. Goal-setting means your actions and posts are aligned with your aspirations, saving you from detours and time-wasters. 

  2. Boosts Productivity: Goals act as your day-to-day playbook, helping you prioritise and skyrocket your productivity. By breaking down your grand plans into mini-goals, you turn daunting challenges into motivating action items.

  3. Keeps You Pumped: Goals aren’t just to-do lists; they’re dream fuel. Even in rough patches, witnessing the small wins keeps your enthusiasm burning. So make that vision board, set achievable goals, and watch yourself stay in the game.

  4. Masters Your Time (and ADHD! 🕐): Good goals are like personal planners—they help you allot time wisely. With goals, you know when to buckle down and when to enjoy that Netflix binge. It’s all about balance and steering clear of overwhelm.

  5. Gifts You a ‘Win’ High: Let’s face it, crossing off a goal or getting that client review feels like winning a mini-Oscar. It’s the thrill of accomplishment and it’s addictive in the best way.

Ready, Set, Goal!

In a nutshell, goal-setting isn’t just a must-do, it’s the backbone of a thriving freelance makeup artist career. In this highly competitive industry, having a clear vision can set you apart. So, set goals that are both attainable and a tiny bit audacious. Smash those mental roadblocks; They’re the last obstacles on your path to success.
