Hello and welcome to episode 6 of Meet This Maker!

Today I’m talking with photographer, Eileen West. I’m so excited for you to get to know Eileen! Not only is she a great photographer, she’s also a fellow life coach, and I love how she’s able to bring the two together!

We had such a FUN conversation! So much of the creativity we talked about applies to life in general. You do not have to be a creative to get some golden nuggets out of our conversation!

We talked about owning our craft, comparing ourselves to others who are already doing the same work, and about the “stories” we tell ourselves. Eileen had so many thoughtful things to say, you don’t want to miss this interview! Plus, you won’t believe what her parents did to facilitate her creativity as a child!

Even though we were meant to be talking all things creative, Eileen put on her life coach hat and gave us some amazing tools to use in our everyday life! Who doesn’t want tools to help us live a better life?!
