I started in photography and photojournalism like many people when they were in high school. Learning the basics of layout on a new program called Adobe while working on the school yearbook. While using this new program I learned about podcasts.
I continued learning while traveling the world, learning how to frame shots and edit on Adobe while it was still a relatively new program.
When I stopped traveling, I went to school and learned the basics of business. This would introduced me to my husband and father of my children.
After the brith of my second son I opened an Etsy shop. This shop was invaluable at teaching me about SEO, analytics, key words, using social media to advertise, using organic and paid advertising, product photography, and most importantly how to build a brand that is based on you as a person. I also started doing Social Media Management for others while promoting my own shop.
Branding a person is key not just for selling products on Etsy, but in photography, blogs, websites, and podcasts these days. People don’t want a brand unless it’s Nike, they want a person.
When the pandemic hit I decided it was time to go back to media and niched down to helping podcasters. Podcasters are some of the most inspirational people, and all you have to do is listen to their stories to find out why.
