I'm Dolly — a Nashville based branding photographer for small business owners & a systems + workflow educator (and Podcast Host) for creatives who want to be more streamlined and organized with Systems, Workflows & Dubsado. I'm here to help you look awesome (for your photos) & feel great about workflows!
I have big news… I started a podcast! I’m so, so excited to share that as of today, the Systems & Workflow Magic podcast is live!! This has been a goal of mine for almost two years and I honestly can’t believe that this dream has finally come true. Thank you so much to Haylee Gaffin of Gaffin Creative for being my podcast producer and helping me bring this to life. And a huge thank you to my mastermind coaches in the last year who pushed me to bring this to all of you! I wouldn’t be there without you!
If you can’t tell from the title, this podcast is all about systems and workflows for creative business owners. I’m sharing tips, tricks, and interviews with experts so that you can learn how to organize, streamline and automate aspects of your business! Episodes will drop weekly and will either be me chatting with a guest expert or sharing my thoughts with you solo. And trust me, we’ve got some great episodes coming up!
When I started my photography business(a creative business), I thought all I would be doing is photographing beautiful families and brands. But the reality is that only about 30% of the time I work is shooting. The rest is all of the backend parts of running a business: sending documents, sending out galleries, networking, and marketing. I realized early on that I needed to run my business efficiently if I was ever going to get anything done. And as I dug in deeper, I fell in love with the SYSTEMS and WORKFLOWS side of running a creative business.
But I know not everyone has a lifelong love affair with systems and workflows like me. So I decided to step into my role as a systems educator and share everything I’ve learned with you!
First off, I’m just so happy that this is out in the world! I hope that it helps so many other creative business owners (this is not only for photographers but for other creative business owners who genuinely want to be more organized and create simple systems and take baby steps towards workflows)! You can take a listen HERE and subscribe so you never miss an episode. Every single time I’ve recorded, it’s been with intention knowing that what I’m sharing will change how you look at systems and workflows.
Remember, workflows and systems are key to running a successful business – but they aren’t something you have to accomplish in one sitting. Take things in baby steps, slowly and with a plan. I hope that the Systems & Workflows Magic Podcast helps you realize there are so many ways to streamline your business so that you can do more of what you love!
