I can't think of a better way to wrap up Weekend Wisdom for 2015 than a podcast with my good buddy Giulio Sciorio. In addition to being a Panasonic Luminary and an incredibly creative artist, Giulio recently shared a guest post on a sensitive topic, the importance of stepping out of your comfort zone. In fact, the title said it all, "If You're Comfortable, You're Not Doing It Right".
Giulio shares a lot of great ideas in this new podcast, and whether it's a great topic to end on or kick off the new year, it's the perfect reminder that creativity is one of the most important components in your skillset. You've got to keep pushing yourself to not only develop your skills but utilize them in new ways and create your style and new techniques.
When Bryan Caporicci and Rob Nowell, founders of Sprouting Photographer and Sprout Studio shared their idea for this podcast series with me, I had no idea how much fun I'd have, or for that matter how much I'd learn from so many amazing guests. There are now 34 episodes in the series, and each one is loaded with ideas to help you think through how to build a stronger business, keep your creative juices flowing and appreciate the amazing industry you've chosen to be a part of.
A big thanks to Bryan and Rob for everything they've done with Sprouting Photographer and the new Sprout Studio. And, an even bigger thanks to all or you, our listeners. As we kick off the new year, if you have an idea for a topic or a guest you'd like to see join me, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing all of you a wonderful New Years and kick off to 2016!
