062: Finding Inspiration & Growing Pains – with Holli True, Jolene Dombrowski, Brittney Kluse & Emil Rodriguez-Powell
Running a business is tough– and this is especially true in 2021. Not only are we dealing with all of the normal tasks and responsibilities, when you throw in restriction obstacles and uncertainty– it only makes the process even harder. In times like these, finding inspiration is vital.
061: Spring Vacations, Cleaning & Letting Go – with Holli True, Jolene Dombrowski, Brittney Kluse & Emil Rodriguez-Powell
In this episode, we also chat about Spring Cleaning– remodeling and making things fresh and new– which also took us down the rabbit hole of having selective ADD with a side of sentimental hoarding. You know us, we love our little tangents! Now that Spring is here (finally... again?), we're really feeling it in our mind, body and soul! The need to get out of our houses is palpable. The past twelve months have been the craziest days of our lives and surviving quarantine feels like a major feat.
060: Specializing & Burnout with Stephanie Fletcher – with Holli True, Jolene Dombrowski, Brittney Kluse & Emil Rodriguez-Powell
This episode is about as real as it gets, friends. We sat down with Stephanie Fletcher of PHILTER PHOTOGRAPHY to chat about the highs and lows of running a successful photography business. In addition to running her own business, she’s also running two other businesses within a studio with two other photographers. Phew! Talk about busy! Stephanie kept it real and was completely transparent with us, talking all about the glorious highs and the overwhelming lows. Trust us, you need to listen to this episode
059: Creative Shoots & Personal Work – with Holli True, Jolene Dombrowski, Brittney Kluse & Emil Rodriguez-Powell
We all have a different approach to creative shoots– and we love that! There simply isn’t only one way to do anything in business or with photography. Inspiration moves through all of us in unique ways, and what we do with that inspiration yields completely different results. In this episode of the Certified Madness Podcast, we’re chatting all about how we approach creative shoots, why we do personal work and all the different levels of how to bring those ideas into fruition.
058: Education & Mindset w/ Sean Brown – with Holli True, Jolene Dombrowski, Brittney Kluse & Emil Rodriguez-Powell
A reoccurring topic we’ve tackled on our podcast is what photography education will look like in 2021– so, we invited our good friend, Sean Brown, to join us for an incredible episode all about Education & Mindset. He has his finger on the pulse of senior photography education with his Mastermind Group, which makes him the perfect industry-insider on these hot topics. We cover everything from learning, growing, and evolving– and how your mindset is key to your success.
057: Systems, Outsourcing & Assistants – with Holli True, Jolene Dombrowski, Brittney Kluse & Emil Rodriguez-Powell
As always, our Certified Madness Crew is candidly and honestly talking about the challenges and changes we're dealing with in our own businesses. We're chatting about being restlessly bored and needing to shake things up, welcoming Assistants into our companies, editing woes and finally letting go of some of the control by outsourcing. Tune-in to our latest episode to hear all about how we're working through everything, no matter how uncomfortable and chaotic it might be!
I ran across this podcast while looking for another one today only to realize I actually KNOW Brittney so of course I had to listen.
I can completely relate to this podcast as a photographer that's been doing it professionally for over 20 years. Thanks for talking about the things we are all feeling.
From one photog to another
So fun listening to other female photogs chat about all the stuff we love talking about. We’re all mad aren’t we?? Only 4 episodes in & loving listening to everything that is so similar to my daily life as an entrepreneur photog!!! Keep up the chatter!
I’m laughing out loud!
Your “you might be a photographer” episode made me laugh out loud! Yes. The lens caps! Now I know I’m not the only one! Love your podcast episodes, each and every one!
