099 - This week, as we creep toward a major podcast milestone, I look back at both the humble beginnings and the happy evolution of Hair of the Dog. 

What have I learned along the way that you can put to use in your own business? If you're a regular listener, the "secrets to success" won't entirely be a surprise. But I hope that framing these in a new way—and sharing a few thought-exercises to try—will help you move the ball forward with your own goals and dreams. 

What To Listen For: 

  • The happy accident that set Nicole's photography business up for success
  • A litmus test for your self-limiting beliefs—and the importance of the company you keep
  • The 3 things you need to be a successful pet photographer 
  • Words of wisdom from Henry Ford, and Nicole's favorite quote
  • The big difference between half-assing it and being 70% "good enough"
  • Friends, the #1 goal here at Hair of the Dog has always been to build community. I'm so thankful to you for making this what is today: an incredible group of people with a shared passion, all moving in the same direction. It's genuinely a joy to see all the friendships forged through pet photography, and the way HOD-ers lean on each other for feedback and support.

    If you're not yet part of our nearly 900-member-strong membership Academy, note that the doors are open for *just* a few more days. We'd sure love to welcome you as part of our pack!

    Bob Saget's Here For You

    Bob Saget's Here For You

    BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
