Hey there, fellow photographers!

Guess who took center stage on the latest episode of the Focal Points Podcast? That’s right, it was me!

I recently had an amazing chat with the fabulous Dorie Howell. It felt more like catching up with an old friend than your average interview.

We jumped straight into the thrilling world of time management and business-building, sharing stories, laughs, and a few “oops” moments.

From managing clients to managing chaos, we showed that handling everyday madness is just another day in the life of a modern entrepreneur.

Our conversation was a refreshing reminder that balancing a passion for photography with the whirlwind of family life is possible. It’s like a juggling act, but with more tasks and fewer clown noses (most of the time).
