Chase Jarvis Photography Chase

By working to highlight a diverse set of narratives from under represented populations, Joshua Kissi and Karen Okonkwo — two of Inc Magazine’s 30 Under 30 — are addressing a huge gap in the creative market.   Karen was at Arizona State University when she decided to start a blog for sorority women. It gained immediate attention. Yet, when a friend asked why there wasn’t any African Americans showcased on the site, she was defensive. As an African American herself, she thought – of course we do! But as she pulled out her phone and started scrolling through the site, she realized her friend was right. She had fallen into the subconsciously biased, racially one-sided trap. Desperately focused on change, she began to showcase all types of women of color, sexual orientation, and under represented groups on her site.

Get Un-stuck And Make Real Money

In speaking with people all over the world, I’ve found hearing other people’s struggles is a fascinating way to helping ourselves breakthrough. This week’s episode is my keynote from CreativeLive’s PhotoWeek. On stage, I sit down with four brave volunteers to discuss some of their biggest pain points, fears, and blind spots blocking us from living, and working toward our dreams. In this episode, I talk about: Defining your dream. Many creatives haven’t defined what they actually want. If you don’t know what you want it will be hard for you to get it. Understanding your why. When the going gets tough, and it will, your WHY is what will separate you from those who don’t want it as bad as you. I share some tactical steps to building a client base and portfolio that supports the work you want to be hired for. If you like what I’m doing here on the show, please leave a review on Apple Podcasts and share with your community. That will help other people find it, and helps me in my mission to make the world a more creative place. Until next week, enjoy! Listen to the Podcast Subscribe   This podcast is brought to you […]
