#55 Karen Skidmore: How to run a profitable business without burning out

September 24, 2019

Welcome to episode 55 of Shoot Edit Chat Repeat, the podcast for people photographers & creative entrepreneurs. Hosted by two leading UK portrait photographers, Vicki Knights & Eddie Judd.

This week we chat to author, speak and business catalyst, Karen Skidmore. Karen has just released a book called True Business Profit and we talk to her about how you can run a profitable business without burning out.

Here are some of the topics we talk through….

– why a profitable business isn’t just about the money you’re making
– how to avoid burn out

– what the 5 growth pillars are and how to make them work for you and your business

– how to work in harmony with your menstrual cycles

– why it’s important to lean back in your business and to do something grounding every single day

And in our Backchat feature this week, we answer a question all about how to manage your photography business when you have more than one niche.
