S6E06 | Welcome to Goal Trackers (with Danyel Rogers, Cris Skinner and Carol Moorhead)

What better way to inspire and motivate yourself than by listening to the goals and strategies of fellow pet photographers around the world? Today I was joined by Danyel Rogers of Wag to My Heart Studio in Portland, Cris Skinner of The Journey Photography in Alaska and Carol Moorhead of Dog-Tog in Florida. We had our first ever Goal Trackers meeting and I loved hearing all about the plans of these three very different pet photographers. From self-publishing books, to working on personal photo series, from transitioning to In-Person-Sales to introducing new packages - this 20 minute episode is packed with great ideas and I’m sure it will inspire you to set your own goals for the next two months.
