Do you have a creative small business that you are head-over-heels passionate about?
You desire to see it thrive and flourish, allowing you to live life to it’s fullest juicy potential…but you feel like it’s too hard to get to that place of freedom?
Imagine waking up each day excited. Imagine a business that is flourishing. Imagine a life of freedom and possibility.
Guess what? You can absolutely have that!
Running a creative business is hard. But guess what’s even harder? Being isolated while you do it.
The good news is, you are not alone!
I believe no matter where we are on our journey, we ALL have something to teach, share and learn.
That’s why I created Planted With Light.
In the Planted With Light Podcast I talk to New Zealand and Australian creative entrepreneurs that have chased after their dreams. I’ll ask how they got to where they are, what struggles they had to overcome, and much more.
My aim is to share practical tips and strategies that will motivate you to live your life and run your business with purpose, clarity and intention.
I believe when we are open with our stories, failures, fears, and our realities, something POWERFUL happens.
I created Planted with Light because of a desire to help other creative entrepreneurs, and create a positive community online. I’m so glad you’re here. Welcome!
WANT TO GET NEW PODCAST EPISODES DELIVERED EACH MONTH?
CONNECT WITH ME!
Hi! I’m Kate Robinson. Wedding photographer, Jesus follower, wife of a cute Scientist, and Mum to Ava.
I’m originally from NZ, and currently living in SLC, Utah (before that, Melbourne 4+ years)!
When I’m not photographing weddings or making podcasts, you’ll find me writing in my numerous pretty notebooks (I’m a sucker for pretty stationery), pounding the pavement with my girl (my favourite time to listen to podcasts!), drinking coffee, watching Netflix, or making pancakes on Saturday mornings.
Planted with Light was the name originally created for a wedding photography workshop I have run for the past 3 years from my parents country property in the Waikato, NZ.
I LOVED running the Planted With Light Workshops. However, I’m currently living overseas and sadly the in-person workshops aren’t a reality for 2015.
I know people are hungry for knowledge to make their lives and businesses better, so I decided to transition online so people can access this content wherever they are!
WHAT IS A PODCAST?
If I’m being honest, the name ‘podcast’ is a little outdated! Who has an iPod these days? A podcast is simply just an audio recording. Let me know if you think of something better to name a podcast!
WHY IS THIS FOR CREATIVE SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS (NOT JUST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS)?
At the PWL wedding photography workshops, I would also have hairdressers, makeup artists, and florists sit in on the teaching part. They would come up to me and say the content was relevant to them, which they could implement in their own business.
If you run your own small creative business, my aim is to make the content relevant to you.
WHEN ARE NEW EPISODES OF THE PWL PODCAST BEING RELEASED?
The first Tuesday (NZST) of every month.
WHY INTERVIEW ONLY NZ AND AUSTRALIAN CREATIVE BUSINESS OWNERS FOR THE PWL PODCAST?
However, sometimes the content can seem a little irrelevant to NZ and Australian small business owners. There are so many amazing Australian & NZ creative entrepreneurs whose stories and valuable wisdom were not being shared, so I wanted to change that!
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO LISTEN?
I listen to all my podcasts through iTunes. Through iTunes, you are able to subscribe to podcasts and download any episodes you want to listen to. I put them in an ‘on-the-go’ playlist so I can listen offline, when I’m walking, driving, taking public transport, or just out and about. To subscribe to the Planted With Light Podcast through iTunes, CLICK HERE!
I also love to listen to podcasts when I’m creating something that doesn’t require my full mental concentration. For me, this is when I’m designing albums, selecting and editing photos, or going on walks.
