EP 104: Have you ever asked a business owner "what is the best lesson you've ever learned?"  It's a great question, and today I'm at the Noobie Photographer's conference asking entrepreneurs a slight variation of that question, by asking them what the hardest lessons were in their careers.   Rachel Crowe - @okcroweFeuza Reis - @fusecreativeincNathan Holritz - @nathanholritzLaJoy Lewis - @lajoyphotographyllcBritney Smith - @theglamlabphotographyAshley Freehan - @thepurposegatheringShaun Austin Gordon - @shaunaustinTomas Flint - @tomasflintThe Noobie Podcast - @noobiepodcastThis episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!

EP 103:  I am here at the Noobie Photographer's Conference in Chattanooga, Tennesee, picking the brains of professional photographers and business owners on what the best investment has been for them in their careers.  Oftentimes, I find amateur photographers cite a new piece of camera equipment as their best investment, which is not to say that is wrong or misguided, but it does highlight a perspective shift from many people starting out to those who have reached a certain level they set out to.  In this episode, I pulled 8 successful entrepreneurs aside to ask them what investment they are most grateful for.  Rachel Crowe - @okcroweFeuza Reis - @fusecreativeincNathan Holritz - @nathanholritzLaJoy Lewis - @lajoyphotographyllcBritney Smith - @theglamlabphotographyAshley Freehan - @thepurposegatheringShaun Austin Gordon - @shaunaustinTomas Flint - @tomasflintThe Noobie Podcast - @noobiepodcastThis episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!

EP 102:  We're out on location!  I am wrapping up here at the Noobie Photographer's conference here in Chattanooga Tennesee, talking to successful business owners and creatives about art, life, and business.  In the quiet moments, I decided to pull every speaker aside for a quick poll, asking them where in business they think startup creatives tend to waste the most time on.   What is amazing is each entrepreneur has his/her own take on what efforts rank highest as a diminishing return, and hopefully these responses prompt all of us to ask ourselves, "what tasks are we constantly spending time on, that yield very little return?"Rachel Crowe - @okcroweFeuza Reis - @fusecreativeincNathan Holritz - @nathanholritzLaJoy Lewis - @lajoyphotographyllcBritney Smith - @theglamlabphotographyAshley Freehan - @thepurposegatheringShaun Austin Gordon - @shaunaustinTomas Flint - @tomasflintThe Noobie Podcast - @noobiepodcastThis episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!

EP 94: Black Friday sales are probably hitting your inbox right about.....yesterday!  And while there are some really good savings to be had on new gear, I want to also highlight some areas that maybe don't get as much love and attention but are equally as important to our business growth.  I'm talking about Education, Marketing, and Outsourcing as pivotal players that are often under-invested in by creatives.  EDUCATION:https://review.palmspringsphotofestival.com/http://thebigphotoblog.com/https://eddieadamsworkshop.org/https://summitworkshops.com/https://www.udemy.com/https://www.creativelive.com/https://www.fulltimefilmmaker.com/MARKETING:https://bayphoto.com/https://www.modernpostcard.com/https://www.magcloud.com/CRMS AND STUDIO MANAGERS:https://www.honeybook.com/https://www.17hats.com/https://www.dubsado.com/https://shootq.com/https://www.studioninja.co/OUTSOURCING:https://www.fiverr.com/?source=top_navhttps://www.upwork.com/https://www.freelancer.com/This episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!

EP 93:  While we creatives study and work on our craft with a great deal of passion, it does not make us impervious to the occasional cognitive bias.  As the saying goes, we don't know what we don't know.  And what we may not know, is what our clients, our leads, our marketing directors, or copy editors are truly looking for all the time.  This makes us susceptible to judging our own work from a subjective lens, which may or may not align with those we want to work with.  In this episode, I'll talk about why it's vital to have our work periodically assessed by objective and qualified parties that can help us find the right path.This episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!

EP 91: The fear of losing clients can be very strong, particularly when starting out in one's career.  We often see these situations from a very scarce-minded lens, leading us to negotiate without a strong footing or backbone.  But the possibility of losing a client is not always a bad thing.  In this episode, I'll talk about some of the silver linings of walking away from a bad client relationship.This episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!

EP 90: The cost of poor communication with colleagues, leads, and clients can be severe.  It can lead to missed opportunities, severed relationships, and tarnished reputations.  Likewise, the benefits of really good communication can allow creatives to gain opportunities that exceed their talent, enrich their relationships, and maintain consistency in 3rd party marketing.  In this episode, I'll reflect on my successful and failed relationships to pinpoint my 7 keys to good communication.  This episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!

EP 88:  Consciously or unconsciously, we are all playing the game of debt in our day-to-day lives.  We tell ourselves many narratives to justify our investments, big or small.  "This is good debt", "Everyone uses it", and "I'll figure it out later" are common phrases thrown around regarding student loans and credit cards as we grow up.  Many of these narratives are forced upon us by the major marketing machine that churns these belief systems, while other narratives have simply been enforced year after year by parents and schools.  In this episode, I provide 3 friendly reminders about this game that we've all been indoctrinated to play; the game of debt.https://finaid.org/calculators/loanpayments/This episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!

EP 85: We've all been told that doing the free job is destructive to our career and the industry we're in.  "Value yourself", "Know your worth", and "Set the bar high" are all narratives we've heard, and maybe even told ourselves, over the years.  I, myself, have bounced back and forth between the idea of saying no and yes to free work, which I believe, many others have as well.  In this episode, I'll talk about where I stand on this issue and what dabbling in free-work could ultimately mean for your next path.This episode is brought to you by Bay Photo Lab.  For all your professional photography printing services, go to bayphoto.com for 25% off your first time order!
