    23: Opening up about mental health in business

    There is a mental health epidemic today on our country; however, out of these struggling, entrepreneurs are 50% more likely to report having a mental health condition.

    In the past, people relied on their physical strength to perform tasks like farming, labor, or other work tasks. But today, good mental health is essential for knowledge work in the 21st century.

    This is a conversation that needs to be had, and today, I’m interviewing Lauren from L Rae Design where she also opens up about her journey with struggling while owning her business.

    22: Overcoming fears in the midst of running your business

    22: Overcoming fears in the midst of running your business

    I think it’s safe to say that we will all experience fear at one point or another while running our business. But it’s what we choose to do with our fear that will either make or break it for us.

    When I think of someone who has learned to conquer fear in business, I can’t help but think of Danielle Ryan, owner of Lifestyle by design studio.

    Danielle offers amazing insight in today’s episode on how to overcome imposter syndrome, she gives tips for better productivity, she talks about what to do when things do go as planned, and so much more!

    Danielle is amazing and I'm so excited to bring her on today!

    21: Playing to your strengths to run a successful business

    21: Playing to your strengths to run a successful business

    Picture this: you start your business, you're so excited about what it is that you have to offer, you open up an instagram account and you start following others in your industry because "community over competition", but then over time, you see those other creative business owners doing something in thier business that really works for them....maybe a type of promotion, or way of getting thier audience to interact with them, so for kicks you tell yourself to try that too, because maybe if it worked for them, it might work for you....so you try it, only to find out that it didn’t work quite as well for you...

    As a business owner, you have strengths, and the strengths you have are not always the same as the business owner next to you. And you have to learn to play to your own strengths in order to run your business successfully.

    Back in February of this year, I had the opportunity to fly out to Seattle to photograph an elopement, and while I was there, I was able to make a new friend in the indursty. Her name is Aryn Graves. Aryn is the owner of her business Sojourn art and Ink where she creates stationery, custom maps and pet portraits and calligraphs vows. She's amazing at what she does but one thing that really stuck out when I met her was our conversation about playing to your strengths as a business owner in order to run a successful business....or, in other words, being your authentic self in business and allowing that to attract your ideal clients.

    Aryn is amazing and I'm so excited to bring her on today!
