Ready to shake things up? Today, Matt and Kia interview Grant Andrew, Matt’s friend and business coach. Listen in to hear them talk about how important the message is you’re putting out to your ideal client. The person running the business, is the message. Who are you, what do you have to offer, what do you love? Then, who does that work for? Who are you excited to work with and photograph? Grant suggests you try a lot of things, see what works, then do more of that. When you’re first starting out, it’s a discovery process. Recognize when something “sparks joy”. And it’s a living process as you grow and evolve. Be careful who you are accepting advice from to begin with. Seek out voices you resonate with on a bigger plane. “Detect your purpose” - Stephen Covey Ask your employees, family, friends - what do they see you enjoying and also avoiding? Embrace the great exchange.

Speaker 2: 00:05 Welcome to from nothing to profit, a photographer's podcast with Matt and Kayak where each week they talk to photographers about what is working in their business now so you can swipe those ideas and grow your business faster. Matt: 00:20 Hey everybody. Welcome to from nothing to profit with Matt in Kenya. So this week we have a really amazing guests. He's actually one of my friends and he also does some business coaching for me. His name is grant Andrew and the reason grant is on here as Kaiser actually never met him. Kyle just met him like 30 seconds ago when we jumped on this recording but I wanted to meet him because he helps me a ton but we had this really interesting conversation and grant I'll try to just summarize it real quick and then kyle and I can kinda. You can Kinda, you can tell your version of the story and then Chi and I can kind of ask you additional questions. But grant and our grant, I were having this conversation where he we're talking about, I'm speaking at a PPA, Boise, well I guess it's Pdpa Ppa, I Idaho and a couple of weeks and he was asking, well what are you going to talk about? Matt: 01:06 And I said, well, you know, talk about marketing and stuff like that. And then I was making this joke about how every time you go to a marketing seminar they spend like half of their talk talking about like avatars are, who your ideal client is and you know, I said, you know, I'm not going to spend all this time just spending the time making people who figure out who their ideal client is because I feel like, again, joking that everybody in the photography industry thinks their ideal client is people with millions of dollars. And that's, you know, whenever like who, who's your ideal client? I don't know, somebody that'll spend eight grand with me and you know, they have a billion dollars in grant money. This really interesting comment. And we had a very short conversation. But then I cut them off because I wanted to continue the conversation here at the podcast and he's in cramped, correct me if I'm wrong, but you basically said that the message you put in front of somebody is more important than the actual avatar of the person because again, I want to see, I don't want to put words in your mouth, but you said something along the lines, like, your ideal client can be a millionaire that's willing to spend $8,000 with you, but if you don't know how to talk to that person, it's kind of pointless. Matt: 02:08 Right? Is that where you were kind of saying? Grant: 02:10 Yeah, I mean, I think, um, I'm just, um,
