Welcome to the podcast Dare to Develop and we are so excited today to tell you a little bit more about our heart behind the podcast. What you can expect to hear in a typical Dare to Develop episode and a little bit more about ourselves so you can get to know us like friends.
This is a podcast started by us to hybrid photographer friends and creatives to focus on developing community and taking daring leaps in their businesses and will feature creative professionals who excel at their craft have dared to redirect or change things up. They focus on developing themselves, their community and their industry into something new.
We’ll have guests interviews from photographers, planners, florists, and creatives that are making waves in their communities and daring to develop their businesses and trials and we’ll also spill the beans on our two businesses, how we personally took daring leaps and developed community with each other and other amazing creative professionals all over.

Julie also has some fantastic advice for anyone looking to make a major pivot in their career. You don’t want to miss this one!
The road to success for any entrepreneur is hardly ever a straight line and few people know that better than our guest today, Shaun Austin Gordon of KISS Books. You’ll hear Shaun talk about the different business ventures he took on while searching for his “I’m meant to do this moment”.
We were so inspired by Shaun’s take on developing community and how that was vital to his success with KISS books. We also talked about productivity, overcoming fear, and showing up for ourselves and others.
We hope you tune in each week for more interviews with creatives, our top tips and advice, and more.
