180: Deevo - The Value of Stories for Marketing Photography

He is an expert in creating digital architecture that helps small businesses and entrepreneurs market their services. And that is what he’s here to talk about today! 

Digital Architecture? YES! 

Deevo says the most effective way to communicate your brand is by intentionally structuring a story for your audience. 

Storytelling is the epicenter of humanity. It is the common ground between strangers. If we can tap into storytelling, we can connect directly with our audience.

How can your photography business use storytelling on social media?

  • Be clear on your purpose and develop a strategy around it
  • Pick one channel
  • Plan it all in advance and schedule your posts!
  • Have aesthetic appeal
  • Be consistent

So, what’s your story? Listen to the episode now!

179: Luci Dumas – Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway!

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” ― Frank Herbert, Dune

Okay, gang…this episode is on the topic of Fear and how we can not let it hold us back from our greatness. As a solo episode, I dive into the topic and take a look at why we need to “Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway” (which is the name of my favorite book by the way on the subject)

I share with you some of my journey, starting with a core thought that I used to have all the time is that I would end up losing everything and becoming a ‘bag lady”…and how I changed that thought and am able to take big risks with confidence.

I look at what we are afraid of and how most times it is one of these things:

  • Loss
  • Someone else’s reaction, like judgment or disappointment
  • Physical consequence/ pain
  • Embarrassment 
  • Self Criticism

And I share a tool where you can do a deep dive into your fears and get to the heart of it, and take the power away from it. I discuss the benefits of taking risks like hiring a coach, opening a studio, buying equipment, and how whatever we do will have benefits from it even if it doesn’t go the way we hope.

So…don’t let fear sabotage your success! Take the risks! You are going to be fine, always.
