Our featured guest today is Julie Paisley, photographer and pivot coach. In this episode she shares her journey from teacher to photographer and now pivot coach. Y'all this is not like any other conversation you’ve heard from someone who’s literally been at the top 2% of their industry. You'll be refreshed to know that you're not alone in the struggle no matter where you are in your journey. I don't know about you but it's too often that when I listen to others success stories it seems all glitz and glam with maybe only a couple bumps in the road. I can promise you that this is NOT one of those conversations. Julie gets real and raw about the emotional and physical toll of what running a creative business in hustle mode was like for her. From being featured on the front page of People to pivoting into a mainly education model Julie shares her gratitude and lessons learned in her journey so far.

Editorial Photographer & Success coach
Photography aside, I'm a southern girl, wife to my college sweetheart, mama to two cool kiddos, teacher to my fellow photographers, and a lover of people and Jesus. I'm prone to wanderlust- as witnessed by the 50 states and 15 countries I've been to so far - and feel so blessed that my job allows me to capture clients around the globe. When I'm not photographing weddings or anniversaries, you'll find me cozied up in our Nashville cottage, educating photographers through online courses and in-person workshops, or hanging out at my favorite place ever, Disney World.
While I stepped away from teaching to pursue photography almost ten years ago, I've had the opportunity to continue my teaching career by educating thousands of photographers. From workshops and speaking engagements to courses and guides, my teacher's heart adores helping other creatives grow. The truth is, I'm just a small-town girl that built a successful business from the ground up. I know the struggles that come along with running a photography business because I've experienced them firsthand. Whether you're just starting a new creative endeavor or are a seasoned photographer, you have a friend and cheerleader in me.
