Today’s conversation was with Laylee Emadi Smith! I’ve had the honor of knowing Laylee for a few years now and have gone through her signature course The Creative Educator Academy.
During our podcast interview we chat about diversity and inclusion in the wedding industry, combatting perfection and comparison within your business and advice for multi-passionate entrepreneurs!
She also shared about what’s going on BTS of her own business currently!
Memorable Moments & Quotes from today’s episode:
03:30 “It’s just hard when you don’t see someone like you at “the top” you know – you kind of start getting in your head about you know, is this only made for people who can claim x, y, and z, or is there really room for me as well.”
10:31 “The biggest encouragement I can give anybody in that situation is just to kind of take a look around them and realize that nobody is doing anything perfectly. I think that perfect is an unattainable kind of standard to hold yourself to. I think by waiting for something to be perfect, you’ll probably be waiting forever.”
22:23 “You really can’t compare to the person next to you, because we are all in very unique spots, even if we’re on the same path, like it could look so different person to person and business to business.”
