Episode 6: I Wish I Knew: My Self-Worth – Tracy Jones
Have you struggled with self-worth when it comes to being true to yourself as a photography business owner? Are you consuming more than creating? Do you lack support and crave connection with fellow creatives?
In Episode 6 of The Noobie Podcast, Tracy Jones speaks on the topic of self-worth. As photographers and small business owners, what we do is personal – meaning that bits and pieces of who we are become tied into the art that we create and the services that we provide. Tune in as we chat about the concept of self-worth, knowing who you are and what you have to offer, and ways that you can implement the significance of self-worth into your business!
