053: Combining Loves for Food, Nutrition & Babies: A Multipassionate Professional Journey in Lactation & Nutrition Counseling with Rachel Davis, IBCLC, Owner of Harmony Nutrition & Lactation

August 20, 2019

Multipassionate millennial Rachel M. Davis is a Registered Dietitian (RD), International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), and the owner of Harmony Nutrition & Lactation, LLC. From a young age, she had a strong desire to serve others, which was further instilled in her through a family that believed in the importance of maintaining the health and wellbeing of both oneself and others. Her remarkable passion for nutrition began after recognizing that many people suffered from preventable illnesses.

Rachel offers an array of family-centered nutrition and lactation services from preconception through preschool including nutritional counseling, breastfeeding education, office-based and in-home lactation consultations, group nutrition classes, group breastfeeding classes, cooking and grocery shopping classes and more! Rachel also provides professional training and presentations and has spoken locally and nationally for many groups and organizations on a variety of topics addressing adult and pediatric nutrition, lactation, and disparities in health. She is particularly passionate about decreasing racial/ethnic health disparities and achieving health equity among all people. She wanted to create a space where this was being addressed intentionally. While Harmony Nutrition & Lactation, LLC is dedicated to the nutritional health of all North Carolina families, there are some initiatives designed specifically for the Black and African-American community.

In this episode, Rachel talks about:

  • making a connection between her passions for food, nutrition, and babies
  • the 3 different pathways to becoming a lactation consultant, including the benefits of IBCLC
  • coordinating community baby showers and providing lactation support for women of color
  • effective strategies for promoting behavioral change with clients
  • juggling multiple jobs and knowing when to let go of some
  • why it's better to hire a business coach sooner than later

050: From Photo Retouching to Photographer for Popular Influencers with MikeDShotMe, Portrait and Event Photographer

August 6, 2019

MikeDShotMe is a portrait and event photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. Getting his start as a photo retoucher, he has a heavy focus on editing his photos right up to the limit of "too good to be true." With each shoot, his goal is to show people the best version of themselves and the world around them. He describes his style as clean with an element of magical realism and considers himself a functional perfectionist.

He specializes in portrait and event photography for influencers and entrepreneurs like Danielle Leslie, Andrew Nguyen, Karen Civil, Maya Elious, Jeremy Anderson, Pinky Cole and Tina Knowles. He is also a contract wedding photographer for Mike Moon Studio. When he's not taking photos, he enjoys watching basketball, hanging out with friends and going stand up paddle boarding with his wife.

In this episode, Mike talks about:

  • starting as an editor/photo retoucher first, then transitioning into photography
  • what aspiring photographers should do more of (and less of)
  • identifying influencers and conferences as his ideal niche
  • how to know when it's time to fire a client
  • the value of jumping in, even when you're scared
  • the importance of managing money well and the freedom it brings
