Friend I’m so excited to welcome you to today’s episode of the Brand Strategy Podcast. Today, I’m overjoyed to welcome my sweet friend and Heartfelt Brand Society alum, educator and photographer extraordinaire,  Laylee Emadi. 

Today we’re going to talk about how to supercharge your brand through action-based education.

If you’ve not met Laylee before—you’re in for a treat. She is such a true light in our industry and she’s an incredible educator and photographer based in the Dallas area who really believes in people over profit—every single time. She is dedicated to serving the creative industry with authentic encouragement and something I really love about her is that she has this tell-it-like-it-is honesty along with the biggest heart.

I’m so excited to have her on the show today to talk about her own journey with education, investing in herself, and how as entrepreneurs we can dive into education more in order to take our brands and businesses to the next level.
