3 Business-transforming Questions to Ask Yourself Weekly
Something I have noticed in all the great creative entrepreneurs that I’ve encountered is the desire for personal development. The best and most successful business owners that I know would all consider themselves lifelong learners, eager to be the best versions of themselves possible. Sound familiar?
If you’re listening to this podcast right now, I’m guessing this resonates with you. You are eager to grow. You also are eager for your business to be the very best it can be. You don’t want to settle for “good enough” - right?
Well, first of all, I just have to say I really love that attitude! An eagerness to learn and grow shows that you have the humility to learn from those wiser than you, and you have the wisdom to know that you just don’t have the answers to everything. So, kudos to you! I already know we’d be good friends. :)
Sometimes, in the race to grow our businesses to be the very best that they can be, we forget to keep up with what’s happening on a day-to-day basis. Those things that you’re already doing as a business owner - how things are going currently - sometimes can be overlooked. So today, I want to slow you down for a sec and help you think more carefully about how to be mindful of where your business is at in the here-and-now. Let’s get started!

How to Build a Team with Nancy Ray (& Determining if it's Right for You)
I've received a lot of questions about team-building and adding associates to my photography company over the last few years. So, for this episode, I decided to go back to my own source of information for all things team building: Nancy Ray. Nancy is a believer, wife, mama, photographer, blogger, and speaker. She is the host of the Work and Play podcast, and she speaks regularly at several conferences and retreats, sharing her inspiration and providing practical resources for living and an integrated life.

5 Ways to Avoid Burnout & Create More Time in Your Life
Have you ever said this statement to a friend, a spouse or partner, a peer in your industry . . . or maybe you’ve just written it in your journal?
I know what I need to be doing, I just don’t have the time right now to do it.
I really hope I’m not alone here, because I definitely was saying this pretty much on a daily basis to my husband for several years. I knew exactly what it would take to achieve XYZ successes and accomplishments that I was aiming for. I had learned all the strategies - through podcasts, courses, networking events, mentorships, you name it. I knew I could see the finish line. But for about two full years, absolutely nothing changed in my business. I worked roughly the same number of hours and made roughly the same amount of money. I was disappointed with the same things in my business as I had been two years previously. All the changes that were taking place in my business honestly felt marginal.
And I think you already know what happens at the end of this story, right? No one can keep on keeping on with a business when your heart and your mind are dreaming of all that could be, but NOTHING actually ever happens. I hit a wall - I was burnt out. My work suffered, and as a result, my clients suffered. Maybe you’ve experienced this too.
I hear a lot (and I mean A LOT) of small business owners say that exact phrase - I know what I need to be doing, I just don’t have enough time right now to do it. And what makes me really sad is that I will hear this same phrase over and over again over the course of weeks, months and even years.
So today, I want to tackle this topic and share what I think so many business owners are getting totally wrong. Listen now!

What I Haven't Shared with You Yet on Everyone Wins (& What's Coming!)
WELCOME BACK! You might have noticed that I’ve been gone for a while.

What is our focus? What do my listeners MOST need? And . . . here we are!

Reflections: 1 Year of Podcasting!
Hi friend! So, I can hardly believe it, but I have been podcasting for a FULL YEAR. Where has the time gone? At the beginning of 2020, I committed to showing up weekly and posting a new podcast every single week. And guess what, we made it! This is episode 52!
Today’s episode is on the shorter side, and it’s definitely more geared towards my loyal listeners, so if this is the very first episode you’re listening to . . . well, I’d suggest starting with a different one! What I’m sharing today is a little bit of a personal look inside my life and my experience as a podcaster and also giving you a little teaser as to what is to come in this second year of Everyone Wins!
