Welcome to the YCS Podcast Q&A episode. As you would have noticed, throughout Season 4 I have been asking you to email me your burning business questions. And this is the episode where I answer them. 

I get a lot of emails and Instagram Messages from you guys asking for business advice, and I can’t always answer them in as much detail as I would like, so I thought this would be a great format to do so. You’ll also hear the questions other creatives need help with, and hopefully, you’ll be able to apply these in your own life and business. 

Needless to say, the response has been overwhelming so I’ve chosen to answer five questions that I think will be most relevant to all of you with topics including keeping a positive business mindset, marketing tools to help attract sales and new clients, faking it till you make it, knowing what pricing strategy to use and what to charge, the comparison trap, how to build your tribe instead of finding a mentor, photography, blogs, newsletters and social media, how to get your first client, mentoring yourself and lots, lots more.


"No one else but you is in charge of how you feel and think."

"Your vibe attracts your tribe."
