You Can't Do it On Your Own with Holly Messenger Aamot
Who do you have in your corner? Today we talk to Holly Messenger Aamot, founder of Atelier False Holly, published photographer with That False Holly Girl, and so much more, about how vital community is.
There are two ways of looking at community that we talk about - business buds and community of people helping us get work done. We get into how you find them, how you nurture them, and how you let go of them.
Trust our gut when we have new voices
Choosing people who lift us up and truly want to see us succeed
Overcommitting because we love community
Surround yourself with complementary skills
p.s. Holly is the photographer behind the camera of all our great photos!
Elevate Your Rates
Afraid to increase your rates? We started reviewing our rates and packages and talked about it in a previous episode (Ask For What You're Worth), and have decided to share how we approached this review this year for each of our businesses. This time we have looked at how to package our services and add value in ways that really serve our clients' needs.
We went back to what we talked about with Matthew Birch and how we have a right and responsibility to earn a profit and incorporated that in our rate reviews. We talk about the impact of this and look differently at how we can serve our clients better.
You will also hear from William of Vines Wine Merchants Riverbend about the wine pairing for this episode. What to try it? Head over to Vines and let them know you heard about it here!

So You Want to Be an Entrepreneur with William Bincoletto
William Bincoletti has half a century of being a sommelier under his belt, but the past two years as the principal sommelier at Vines Wine Merchants in Riverbend has challenged him more than he expected. When he and his business partner took over Vines Wine Merchants, they didn’t anticipate that COVID would completely change the way they could run the business they had been working at for 15 years. Despite that, Vines is continuing to adapt and thrive. Join us to hear William's business story, learn about how he and his staff continue to sell great wine, and dive into the first bottle on our wine list with an experienced sommelier.
