If you love Kia Bondurant, you’ll love this podcast episode! Matt interviews Kia about her New Year’s tradition. Kia chooses a word of the year, every year. Kia tried it first with her best friend in 2011, then her husband, Andy and the first time was totally off the cuff. Her first word was “create”. Her second year/word was “stewardship” to step up her care of things. Listen in to hear more of Kia’s words for each year and how she looks back on how her words changed her life. In 2015, Kia also picked a word for her studio, in addition to her personal life. In 2018, Kia’s personal word was “words”, which she expected to be about writing and reading. But 2018 is the year Matt and Kia started this podcast! Kia’s word for the studio was “double” and this year she is purchasing her studio building and doubling her square footage. The word you pick in January might mean something completely different or new in December. Kia has 6 action points to pick your word of the year, so make sure to take notes! Pick a word (pray about it - don’t overthink it) Have faith (your word is going to be important throughout the year) Look for signs Take action (tell people about it) Be creative (putting the word into your life) Be disciplined Celebrate how the word made your life better (Bonus) Link to Andy’s writing/blog about word of the year: Read Full Transcript Transcription was done by which means it’s an AI generated transcript.

Speaker 1: 00:01 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: 00:16 Hey everybody. Welcome back to from nothing to profit. So if you are a big fan of Kaia, this will be your show because this is our new year's show and if you're listening to this. When it first came out it came out on New Year's eve and I wanted to interview Kayak because she does this really cool thing and I'm going to give her the floor to kind of explain it. But her and her husband did this thing every year where they, they come up with a word of the year to kind of focus their business and she told me this a couple of years ago and it kind of just blew my mind when she told me about it. But. And I'm not very good about it, but this is going to be the year I'm going to do it. And so part of the show is to teach you guys all what she's doing, but also to hold me accountable. So I actually do this year. So Kaya, I'm gonna pass the floor to you. Tell us about this whole a new year's thing that you do with the word and all that stuff. Kia: 01:06 Okay. Well, I'm super excited to share this because it's been something that was a really unexpectedly positive and you know how sometimes you're like, okay, know I need to do this. It's going to be so good for me. Especially with the new year. You're like, I'm gonna lose weight. I'm going to start exercising. I'm going to give up pop, you know, whatever or soda, whatever that type of thing is. And this was actually just something totally off the cuff that we started doing. And I had read it. I, I'm, I'm definitely not the first person to do this at all. I actually knew one of my employees, uh, probably 15 or 20 years ago told me that her mom had her do this every year and what she would do is choose a word and then make a collage out of magazine images that describe to that word and then put it on the wall and look at that all year long. Kia: 01:58 And I thought, oh, that's clever. And her first word I think was journey or something like that. And I thought that was really clever and I didn't do anything about it. But, uh, I was reading maybe on the bloggers side or somet...
