In this episode, Samatha Clarke, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Toronto, shares all about her journey as a creative entrepreneur. She started her photography business when she was still in law school (talk about a lot to juggle, right?!) and has steadily grown her business to the point where she was able to leave her 9-5 job.


Samantha is a great example of blending your unique skills to build your business and make it stand out. Samantha’s legal background has helped her throughout her business journey, and she has used that education and experience to grow her own business and help others in the industry.


Samantha also points out some of the common pitfalls that hold us back from achieving greatness in our businesses. Outsourcing and time management strategies are key in helping us overcome these pitfalls, and Samantha has some great pointers in these areas.
