Hello my lovelies!
Welcome to the Audacious Babe Podcast – Episode # 1 – Introduction. Whoohoo can’t believe you are here and can’t believe this is actually happening. I’ve been dreaming of doing this podcast for ages. Welcome welcome welcome!
The Audacious Babe podcast is part of the Rise & Shine Society, which is this online community for passionate like-minded audacious female photographers. Both are here to inspire you, to empower you and to help you run successful photography businesses.
This is going to be a weekly podcast and its main focus is going to be interviews of other female photographers. We will be going behind-the-scenes of how they run their business, what challenges they might have faced along the way and how they overcame these. Each audacious babe will share their story and share their photography journey, so that you feel hopefully inspired and/or learn from them to bring your own business to the next level.
In addition to the interview episodes, I will create some episodes where I will share some tips and treats for you. This can be practical business related tips and to dos, or just some food for thought to pull you out of your comfort zone and make you think outside of the box. So hopefully you find those interesting and valuable as well.
Running your own business can be quite lonesome sometimes. We are constantly in our heads and there are so many challenges to face. BUT believe me, you are not alone my lovelies. We all have phases of self-doubt, procrastinations, chronicle lack of time and so on. But we also have happy times and photography is the source of your passion. You chose to setup your own business and become a photographer because you want to lead a different life. One filled with passion, one of freedom and one away from the 9 to 5 grind… Am I right?! So let’s make this happen! Let’s do this! And let’s do this together!
The community and this podcast are here to show you that you do not have to walk this walk alone. Come and join the community and let’s support each other. Share your wins and share your struggles. We are all in the same boat. The Facebook group community is a safe environment to celebrate and support each other. So if you’d like to be part of that community, head over to riseandshinesociety.com and opt-in on the side. I will then send you a personal invitation for the group.
So, this is the rough idea about this podcast. We will see how this plays out along the way. But I hope you’ll like it and find it valuable. This podcast as well as the community is for you. So please do let me know if you have any suggestions for topics or ideas for audacious babes to interview.
Also, we’ve created a feature section on our website. So if you have an amazing photography session that you are particularly proud of, please get in touch. We’d love to show off your audacious talent and celebrate you!
Ok before I wrap up this first introductory episode, I thought I’d share a little bit about myself.
Some fun and colourful facts about me
- I’m a notorious travel freak. I simply LOVE the adventure when you travel. Meeting the people, experiencing the cultures and being fully immersed in this colourful world. I’m not even close to being done exploring what this beautiful life has to offer.
- I’m a cat-obsessed coffee drinker. Dramatic pause. Yes I am. My fur-baby George is my house companion and my friend – not my only one, I promise. I’m not a crazy cat lady…not always at least. And the fact that I’m drinking coffee, well that is kind of obvious! Coffee is just awesome! 😉
- For whatever reason I have a thing for all things pineapples. Not only the fruit itself, but also things like stationery, prints, pen holders, jewellery and so on… you get the idea. It took every single bone in my body not to have the pineapple in my branding for the Rise & Shine Society – even though it has made it into my podcast artwork design after all haha… ups. #sorrybutnotsorry
- I believe life should be easy and effortless. Not saying that you won’t work your sweet butt off for your dreams and ideas, (hell yeah!) but it should come from a place of self-love, passion, of creativity and pure magic that it feeeelsss effortless and easy.
