Changing Directions in Your Career: a chat with Jenna Kutcher on her Goal Digger podcast

Are you loving the work you're doing these days?

Have you ever thought about making a career change but the fear of the unknown has you staying put? Or maybe the thought of walking away from guaranteed income feels like too much of a risk to take. Do you feel like changing career paths after already building a business makes you a failure? Trust me, I have been where you are.

If you feel like you are missing the passion you once had for your work and you have been thinking of making a career change but something is holding you back, then I would love for you to head on over to Jenna Kutcher's Goal Digger Podcast today!

Jenna has created an amazing podcast that features honest conversation about issues we business owners face. I am so honored to have been invited on her show to discuss "Changing Directions in Your Career". 

On this episode Jenna and I have a real conversation about what it looked like for me to leave my wedding and portrait photography career of 8 years and go after something that I thought would be a better fit for me - commercial photography, product styling and creator of the SC Stockshop

I am holding nothing back and sharing all the details of where I started (i.e. feeling like a mediocre wedding and portrait photographer) to what that transition looked like in my career (spoiler alert: I had to get over my pride, erase 8 years of portrait work and start from scratch) and how that decision ended up being the best career move I could have made.

If you are feeling stuck in your work these days and wondering if there are other, more fulfilling things out there for you and if you have been ignoring your gut when it says "it's time to move on", I would encourage you to take a listen! 

Listen to Goal Digger Episode 026 here!


XOXO,
Shay

THE SERIOUS LEGAL STUFF

With this transaction Buyer acknowledges that the purchase comes with a non-exclusive limited use license so that the Purchaser may use the image for personal or professional use in the normal course of Purchaser's business.

Purchaser may crop the image and overlay the image with text or pdfs of product designs as fits Purchaser's needs, but Purchaser may not otherwise alter, edit or manipulate the image.

Shay Cochrane remains the sole and exclusive owner and holder of the copyright in the image and the Purchaser may not sell, lease, loan, transfer, assign, or give away the image or a derivative thereof or otherwise allow a third-party to use the image in any way.

The Purchaser may not use SC Stockshop images to promote styling related workshops, webinars, classes, how-to-style blog posts or newsletters, or any styling related training.

NOW, IN PLAIN ENGLISH

These images have been designed to become a part of your branding just like a logo or font choice.

As an entrepreneur yourself, you know how frustrating and discouraging it can be when people misuse, steal, giveaway or alter your work. With that in mind, please don't change the colors or move the props around - it just doesn't look as good (and infringes on the usage terms)!  

Feel free to crop the image any way that you want and overlay it with text or designs to help you to promote your brand and sell more products!  

By purchasing the image you are agreeing not to give the image (or a part of the image) away to anyone else in ANY way even if you turned it into a beautiful free e-book cover, or snazzy desktop screen savor.

It would also be just plain wrong to re-sell the image in any form such as turning it into an art print or including it in a website or other template design.  

Lastly, using an SC Stockshop image to sell your styling course, webinar or other styling related training is sort of false advertising. Show them the styling that YOU have done so that they know exactly what they are in for and can get excited!  This is not meant to scare you.  

If you have any questions or concerns about the legal use of our images please don't hesitate to shoot us an e-mail! We don't bite!
