Business without Burnout: The Keys to Setting Yourself up for Sustainable Photography Success on Your Terms with Jenna Henderson

SUBSCRIBE: iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher

I’m not sure if you can relate, but I am a people-pleaser by nature, which often leads to overbooking, undercharging and…ultimately burnout.

In this episode, Jenna and I chat about the link between confidence and our ability to detach our identity from our business and also, getting SUPER clear on our why.

Jenna shares some of the keys to setting yourself up for a sustainable (and profitable) business… based on YOUR terms.

And this week’s episode on the Art & Soul Show is PERFECTLY timed to go along with the yearly planner!

Our annual free planner for photographers is ready for you!

I hope it helps you as you reflect on what worked well (and maybe ‘less well’) in 2021 and to make some big plans for the year ahead.

As we like to say, “Have a plan. Have a life.”

    That was such an empowering and encouraging conversation about settings your boundaries! I am taking away the quote “just because you changed your mind doesn’t mean you FAILED at something.”

    It literally was an AHA moment for me.

    Released YEARS of guilt about some shifts in my business.
