191 - Krista Marie - Overcoming Burnout as Photographers - Profitable Photographer Podcast with Luci Dumas

In this video, we take a deep dive into the dreaded Burn Out and ways to avoid or recover quickly with my amazing guest, Krista Marie.

Krista is a photographer, business coach and the host of “She Calls Her Shots” Podcast. She helps creatives ditch the overwhelm and create thriving businesses by focusing on the tactical strategies, habits, and mindset & confidence work that’s crucial to seeing long-term growth via social media, her blog & her Podcast.

You know you are in burnout if you have overbooked, working too much, lost your passion, feel resentment, and have self-doubt. Or lack of business not motivated because things aren’t working feels like burnout. Remember:

  1. It is inevitable. 
  2. It comes in seasons. Sometimes we need to step back for a while.
  3. Figure out our intentions if we feel called, stop and do nothing. 
  4. Find your triggers..release the pressure and timelines.
  5. There are no brownie points for overworking.

Marketing mistakes:

  1. Too many places, and not knowing who we are targeting
  2. Too many platforms and not enough activity
  3. Waiting around for opportunities to come to us
  4. Asking others for their advice…not knowing if they are successful
  5. Overcomplicating the process

181: Hunter Lowder - Avoiding Burn Out and "Firing Up" Our Photographic Goals

After suffering severe burnout as a CEO, Hunter is passionate about building a business in alignment with her values.

“Burnout is not afraid of playing the long game. To prevent burnout, we need to play a long game, too.” ― Sally Clarke

You’ve probably been there, you’re a visionary and you have big plans for your business…BUT NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY! You find yourself overworking to make your business grow. You’re exhausted, yet not sleeping. More emotional than usual, maybe overeating or leaning on alcohol. It feels like you are spinning and your business is out of control. 

Hunter says it’s important to come back to ourselves and our bodies by:

  1. Journal and meditate
  2. Let your values guide you
  3. Ask for help

And, hey, if burnout has got you down, it’s not the end of the world!

Here are some tips for recovery:

  1. Get to know yourself through personality assessments to better understand what led to this moment.
  2. Let go of the “shoulds”
  3. Celebrate! 

Like Hunter says, there are no rules and “shoulds” when it comes to developing your business. So let that pressure go and move forward with you in mind!

Take the first step to valuing your needs and listen now!
