    71. Get thee to Yosemite

    71. Get thee to Yosemite

    Hello Friends!

    This week we're talking wonders of Yosemite.  Seriously.  It's amazing.  If you haven't gone, you absolutely need to.  However, there are a couple things you might want to check first.  Like the park website.  It's going to let you know what areas/roads are closed.  And that will be important.  So listen in.

    We talk about a very serendipitous moment in the part that was super awesome.  And then the recovery in San Francisco and what it means to fly from the West Coast to the East.  Spoilers: it's rough.

    Be sure to check out the blog post for tips and tricks for shooting in the park.  Thanks!

    70. Make Time for You

    Hey Friends

    We're going to take a bit of a relaxing day today and talk about work / life balance.  Whether you're corporate or self employed, it's important that you're doing what you need to do for you.  Say no to weekend work.  Take a bath.  Put vegetables on your face.  Blame your partner.  Whatever it is, it's important enough to mention so that you don't burn out.

    Take a break, friends.  Take a looooooong break.

    Bye!
