I'm a big fan of podcasts because they give us a chance to multi-task and at the same time absorb content we might not have the time to read. I regularly have podcasts playing in the background while I'm working on something else.
I was recently honored to be a guest on The Profitable Photographer, a new podcast series launched by Luci Dumas. The topic was all about building relationships, and while I was a little embarrassed over Luci's long intro regarding my career in photography, she did a great job of asking the right questions. Luci's focused on helping photographers build a stronger business, and as sappy at it might sound a happier life.
I consider myself one of the luckiest guys in the photographic industry, and Luci is a perfect example of what I love most - the friendships that come out of everyone's passion for the craft. We're all working to build a network of relationships with people we respect and work with. Luci and I first met back around 1990 at WPPI when I would have been in the Hasselblad booth. Our friendship is a perfect example of why you need to attend every possible conference/convention you can work into your schedule - a big part of your success is about building a strong network and relationships with people who share your same passions for imaging, business, marketing and success.
This is the fifth episode in her new series, and you'll find not only my episode but a lot of great content Luci's offering the photographic community with a click on the banner above!
A big thanks to Luci and her team for including me in this new series.
