Episode 29: Allie Siarto on Entrepreneurship and a Fulfilling Career

Allie Siarto, Michigan photographerAfter my interview with my friend and fellow photographer, Mikkel from Mikkel Paige Photography, she came back and told me that she wanted to interview me for the podcast so that I could tell my own story. It was fun to be on the “other side” of the interview for this one and share how I went from running a multiple six figure marketing company with my husband to essentially quitting it all to focus on photography full time.

Sadly, the Get it Together Kit that I mentioned in the interview is no longer available. I’ll have to get Millie on the podcast soon to find out what she’s up to next.

A few topics from today’s show:

  • How the Chicago Photography Center got me interested in photography
  • Apprenticeships and mentorship
  • Why and when I decided to focus on photography full time

And in the spirit of the podcast, here’s a grab of some of my favorite photos.
