031: From Showbiz to Photography: Finding Your Personal Image
Show Notes

With more and more women gliding into entrepreneurship, the need to share your personal persona all over the world wide web is becoming the norm.

None of the people I know likes this part of the game. But, with the need for speed, you gotta just surrender to the process.

And no one knows this better than my client and friend, Sheryl Wachtel, lifestyle photographer, and storyteller.

Sheryl’s road to discovery was not a straight line. What started out as the “mom” who took the kid's pictures in the preschool classroom, led her to shoot families and huge Hollywood events. Currently, included in all of the above, she is overbooked, shooting social media influencers and online moguls.

She shares her story and so much more on this week's episode of the Power Of The Pivot podcast. The pandemic forced her to rethink how she was going to do business and around the same time she found me.

Sheryl has learned in these past two years that when you are passionate about something and still love it after all these years, you have to find ways to keep it fresh. And she’s doing just that
