Because I like to celebrate life’s failures and clearly I’m not the only one. I came across this interesting article today and in the spirit of making mistakes, I wanted to share this with you so you know that you’re not alone in failure and in hopes that you remember, most people fail, including big corporations and that it’s totally ok and in fact, its kinda cool.
This article is for all the mothers going through a transition in their lives that most people just don’t understand. Frankly, neither did I until I started talking with more mothers about their experience with parenthood. Even still, until I have my own kids, I likely won’t ever understand what it feels like to have postpartum depression. For all those who do or think they do, this article does a great job at explaining the things that WON’T cure postpartum depression.
If you’ve ever had a creepy experience with a photographer who seemed to be more interested in you, than taking your photos, this app is for you!
Back in 05′ I spent some time as a freelance model and boy oh boy was that a big mistake for me! I made minimal money freelancing and I seemed to be running into every GWC (guy with camera) in Toronto. GWCs are men or women who purchase a camera, have little to no experience with ‘Exposure’ or ‘Aspect Ratios’ or other photography basics, and instead they prey on attractive women and use their photos to make personal memories. Let’s just say, I quickly decided that freelance modelling wasn’t the way to go for me (this was before Instagram modelling became a thing).
If you have never had this problem, good on you, but chances are you’ve had a slightly different one, you spent money on someone who you were recommended to and were extremely disappointed when your wedding photos came out dark, dull and dingy or when the photos of your little bundle of joy had absolutely no joy in them. Yikes!
Well, I’m excited to say that when Galaxy Photoz launches this June, you won’t have this problem.
- The photographers at Galaxy Photoz are vetted. They have to go through a 2-step rigorous qualification process and only the best are selected. Not only that, photographers are focused on 2-3 types of photography that they specialize in (and are actually good at).
- The images are guaranteed. You don’t even have to pay in full until you see and approve your photos. For non-event photography, by chance, if something goes wrong, another photographer will re-take your photos free of charge.
- Your deposit is safe with Galaxy Photoz. Like UBER, Etsy, Amazon, eBay and other marketplaces, your payment is going to a secured middleman until you receive your images.
28 year old Leanne Ferguson, realized that there was a need for a photography app where you could simply download an app or go online and be connected to a vetted professional photographer within minutes. Leanne’s an ambitious entrepreneur and she decided to go big or go home and is launching her new app in 10 cities in North America, “launching in 1 city can be difficuilt but launching in 10 is going to take a lot of resources, so I am raising money to pull this off,” she shares.
Her crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo can be found at www.go.galaxyphotoz.com
The new app launches June 2017, the photographers specialize in Maternity, Newborn, Cake Smash, Headshots, Engagements, Wedding, Events, Model Portfolio and Portraits.

Are you longing for motivation but you don’t know where to find it?
A lot of us are too busy worrying, complaining and being sad to actually find a motivator that we can relate to.
To help you out, I started a show that helps you find motivators you can relate to, there are way too many TED talks to comb through, that’s why I started the Youtube show, Motivators.. I’ve found that listening to daily motivation, helps me just enough so I can motivate myself.
In episode 2 of Motivators, I feature the very famous Gary Vaynerchuk.
This week, I watch his “6 mins for the next 60 years of your life” video and I talk about his background and how he became one of the biggest motivational speakers (and richest marketers) in the world. If you like in your face, no bullshit personalities, than you’ll love Gary V. He’s definitely not the typical marketer. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
DO YOU KNOW YOUR “WHY?”
I was at a motivational speaking contest yesterday and I was blown away by the confidence that I saw on the stage. I started to think, “I can’t do that. Can I?” Then my courage kicked in and said, “Casey, you’re gonna do it! You’re gonna start practising tonight.” And then I realized that I was letting doubt get to my head and I decided it was time for a reminder on how to kill doubt. So here it is!
If you’re experiencing feelings of doubt, this video is for you!
How understanding your “why” can help you overcome fear and doubt:
