When you start local, you tend to stay locally-minded. This can be a great thing because it means you’re investing in the community around you and building up relationships with the people in your own city. But sometimes you’ve got a bigger dream than that. You want to branch out and go big.
Our first podcast guest, Whitney Warne, is busting right out of her local market bubble and expanding her reach to national levels. But the transition to get there is still in progress. And it’s taken a lot to get her here. Her journey to getting where she is now is a fascinating one and that’s what we’re diving into on this episode of the Local to Legend podcast.
Whitney is the powerhouse behind Ivory House Photography, a photography business offering headshots, family sessions, brand portraits, and unapologetically extra sessions in Des Moines, Iowa. Her experience infusing people with confidence in front of a camera while also nurturing clients to believe in their own value has helped her make a natural pivot into the world of coaching.
Now a certified Enneagram coach, Whitney has made it her mission to walk with others on their journeys to finding their inner well of strength while planting a seed in all her students that they deserve to be seen and heard. Photographer to self-development coach? Yep, Whitney’s making it happen. If you’ve ever dreamed of building beyond your local business, this episode is for you.
Join The Circle, Whitney’s online community zoning in on self-growth, the Enneagram, leadership, and how to show up for ourselves and others. Hop on her email list to find out the details of this fantastic new group coming in early 2021. Follow along with @ivoryhousephotography and @whitneywarne on Instagram.
