This week I'm chatting with a friend, Christine Skari who I've been connected with for years through the food blogging community. I've loved watching Christine's path unfold as she has created an incredible wedding photography business.

I especially wanted to talk to Christine because I knew she would have some amazing insights into creative work and being resourceful as well as being open to your path changing. I love where this conversation went!

  • What it was like to go into a career that had nothing to do with your degree
  • Transitions - how she adapted from college to working for herself full-time
  • Why talent doesn’t just happen overnight
  • the importance of just starting and the power of momentum
  • Being resourceful and teaching yourself new skills

  • How they work in our bodies
  • The most beneficial uses for oils
  • Different common ailments and the best oils for them
  • How do different smells impact our mood
  • Common misconceptions about essential oils?
  • Kelsey’s experience with a natural birth
  • Handling pain in a positive, empowered way
  • The power of breath
  • Relaxing versus resisting the pain

If you can believe it, [I barely can] we are at episode 60 of the Chasing Joy Podcast. What the what?! I guess time flies when you're podcasting! Every 10 episodes I reach out to you, my amazing audience for questions and I do a Q&A style episode. These shows are so fun because I get to hear what you're interested in.

Lately I've been recruiting people near and dear to me to help me record these because it's just more fun that way. My sister has hosted, Chris has hosted (twice) and now my mom is joining in on the fun! She totally killed it. We dive into a bunch of fun, food, body image, relationship, wedding and business questions.

If you missed asking your question, no fear because I'm always available to answer questions on the Joy Squad, the private Facebook group!
