Creative Rising Episode 304
It’s no secret that our businesses rely on social media to get in front of the brides and grooms we most want to photograph.
But it’s also no secret that many of us struggle with distraction, comparison, and insecurity when scrolling our feeds.
Social media is becoming more addicting than ever, but also more effective than ever for our marketing.
So as creative entrepreneurs, it’s critical that we learn to untangle our hearts and create healthy boundaries with a digital world that is becoming increasingly distracting.
In this episode, I have a conversation with Abby Grace, a film photographer in Washington D.C., about how she establishes healthy boundaries and balance in her relationship with social media.
Abby shares the resources and practices she uses to keep social media in its proper place in her business, and how she keeps social media out of her personal hours. Hint: Hear how she deletes Instagram every day at 5pm!
This is a life-giving conversation you definitely don’t want to miss!
