205 - Tashina Calhoun - Mental Health and Emotional Intelligence are Keys to Success - The Profitable Photographer with Luci Dumas

Talk about an inspiring conversation! 

Mental health is a topic that has been important in my life because of family members with challenges, and it was so heartwarming to hear of the amazing work that Tashina is doing in communities across the country to bring more awareness to this sensitive and important topic. 

During our time together, I especially loved that Tashina dove into how business owners can focus more on their own mental health and emotional intelligence. 

Listen in as Tashina shares with us: 

  • why it’s important to set the tone in the space where you’ll be doing your session
  • the definition of emotional intelligence and what that means for your business
  • how to become aware of your own feelings and change a negative mindset
  • the best way to handle conflicts in your business

If you’ve been wondering how you can learn to be more perceptive of others’ feelings in your business or in front of your camera, this is an episode you don’t want to miss.
