You're confident and capable. You know what you're doing and are seeking greater challenges.
Consider offering a full-service web design offering that includes more in-depth time spent consulting with clients. Or perhaps start an exclusive mentorship group.
Topics and services could include helping clients with:
finding their target audience
increasing traffic to their website
converting visitors into clients and customers
While you're creating more value for your clients, remember to connect with other designers and professionals in related fields. No one can do everything on their own.

You love solving puzzles and figuring out things on your own. In fact, you may even consider yourself a bit of a Jack of All Trades.
If clients come to you with an interesting problem, you're happy to spend some time researching a solution. You just wish there was more time to learn it all!
While you're learning more skills, remember to stay focused. You can only learn so many things at once. Try creating a personal roadmap to help you get to where you want to be.
Do you want to learn how to:
understand and customize coding snippets?
speed up building websites?
make websites more accessible?
research your clients' competitors?
Write it all down and then map it out month-by-month and year-by-year. Choose to start with the skills that are most valuable to you at that moment.
And if learning to code is on your list, check out my mentoring service to help speed up your learning.
You know what you're good at and what tasks you don't care for. For example, you're good at design, planning, and assigning the right tasks to the right people.
You want to spend more time on design and increase the efficiency of your business. And you hate getting stuck googling things that seem like they should be easier than they are.
Take some time to think about your business and what you love about it.
What are your favorite tasks?
What are your least favorite tasks?
What would you have more time for if you could get rid of your least favorite tasks?
Once you've made your list, consider the type of experts that can do the tasks you dislike. Would you benefit from a virtual assistant, a developer, or a copywriter?
Find someone you trust to do the job and assign tasks to them. Make more time for the things you love to do!

You're a team player and a collaborator and you believe in the saying "A rising tide lifts all ships." You value working with others and use every group project to learn from your peers.
You know your strengths and weaknesses and you particularly appreciate working with experts who have different and complimentary skill sets.
To give your clients the best possible experience, consider meeting other experts through:
joining small designer-focused Facebook groups
attending local meetups and getting to know the local designer community
making a list of your strengths and weakness and getting to know experts that have complimentary skill sets
Reaching out to other experts for a collaboration is a great way to expand your offerings. Think about:
who you want to partner with
what skills you can offer them
a specific project to collaborate on
Other professionals will be happy to hear from you as long as you are clear and concise and can demonstrate what you can do for them.
