Host of Cue to Cue Podcast Chelsea Johnson

You must have noticed by now that our Personal Branding/Website Photoshoots are very popular with image-savvy female entrepreneurs! I always pour my heart and soul into projects with fellow girlbosses because I want to support them and give them the best possible imagery so they can stand out and communicate what they are all about!

Every photoshoot is special. Chelsea Johnson is the Host of Cue to Cue Podcast for Performers. Her experience as an actor, singer, director and vocal coach makes her an awesome Podcast Teacher!

Chelsea is currently finishing her Online Course for Podcasters, so we asked her what are Three Questions You Must Ask Yourself Before Starting A Podcast. Keep on scrolling to find out!

Chelsea's brand colors are gold/yellow, black, white and she loves metalics, so we designed the photoshoot and styled the sets with this in mind! If you look closely, you'll notice Chelsea's eye color is actually gold! #thegirlwithgoldeneyes

THREE TIPS FROM CHELSEA ABOUT STARTING A PODCAST

1. What is the purpose of your podcast (other than to drive sales to your current business)?
Ask yourself, what do you want your listener to take away from tuning in? Do you want to educate, entertain, or perhaps inspire your audience? There absolutely can be crossover but what is the reason the listener will deliberately come to your podcast for? It doesn’t mean you can’t be funny and educate people but one of those two will end up being the reason people will keep coming back to your show.

2. Is this a hobby or a serious endeavour?

If you want to keep your podcast a hobby and just do some periodic episodes whenever the feeling strikes then you don’t need to concern yourself any further. Have fun! For those of you who want to take podcasting seriously and grow your audience and have the potential for monetization then you need to be prepared to work. Some people start a podcast because they enjoy listening to podcasts and think that it seems like a lot of fun! All you have to do is turn on the microphone! How hard can it be? I will be the first to tell you that I absolutely love podcasting and love it even more than I thought I would initially but make no mistake, like anything else that you want to get good at, it takes time and consistent effort.

Tip: Decide how often you would like to release an episode. Once a month? Once a week? Understand that once you release your first episode(s) Apple Podcast looks at how consistently you are releasing new episodes and takes that into consideration when placing you in the ranking in Apple podcasts. In other words, if you are not posting consistently, it could affect your visibility to potential listeners of your podcasts. So, if you are going to do an episode once a week, pick a day and stick with it.

3. Who do you want to serve?

This is so important! You need establish who it is you are talking to and how you are going to solve their problems. Whether that is by helping someone overcome their fears and take the leap into the world of entrepreneurship or giving someone something to laugh about while they are potentially stuck in traffic on their way home from work.

Get specific! DO NOT TRY TO SERVE EVERYONE! You will become exhausted and you will ultimately fail at it. Not everyone will listen and that’s okay. You want to have like minded listeners that engage with you and are invested in what your show brings to the table.

Pink Pamplemousse Flower Studio

I couldn't be more excited to photograph my dear friend Aneta Kawa, one of the most caring and nourishing people I know... Aneta is the owner of Pink Pamplemousse Flower Studio. Her love for creating floral art is as big as her heart!

PureStudiosAgnesKieszAnetaKawa.jpg
My connection to flowers and nature has always been spiritual more than visual. I approach my work with sincere passion and respect for the hues of color that I touch and a tenderness for every petal as it blooms; and in return, I am nourished with inner calm.
I have spent the majority of my adult life caring for my son, as I am a single mom. I have nourished him and he has flourished into a good-spirited, hardworking and a wonderful teen. I feel that for the first time, I can begin to cultivate my own dreams and in doing so, inspire others too.

Kavita Suri

I love working with entrepreneurs who are so honest about their personal and professional journeys... I've been working with Kavita Suri, Owner of Infuse Med Spa for years now as she enjoys doing a branding photo session every year.  And every single year we think we won't be able to out-do ourselves next time, yet we always manage to!

This project takes a very special place in my heart as the inspiration for it was the story of the rising phoenix, a suggestion that came from Kavita's dear friend, artistic director Umbereen Inayet. It just so happened that we were going through some difficult times and growing pains, so we poured our hearts and souls into the project.

The goal was to remind us all that through hardships we can be reborn, shed parts of ourselves we no longer need and come out stronger in the process. Eternal and beautiful, the Phoenix "represents hope and life, it is a symbol of strength in face of calamity and destruction, [...] there is no greater symbol for a man's indomitable will".
