Podcast Show Notes

Episode 022: Reset and Refresh for 2024

The Cameras and Coffee Podcast

Guest Renee Dalo

Get ready for a candid conversation with Kara and Renee as they explore the highs and lows of chasing dreams and adapting to life’s surprises. Kara kicks off the episode, pouring her heart into the significance of setting goals that resonate. Renee chimes in, adding her unique take on a quarterly goal-setting rhythm that keeps things dynamic and real.

Listen in as Kara spills the beans on her monthly goal-setting ritual with her photographer pals—a tight-knit community that’s all about cheering each other on and holding one another accountable. Renee jumps in with some practical advice, urging listeners to take small, intentional steps toward their aspirations and avoid getting overwhelmed by the big picture.

Things get interesting when Renee shares her quirky manifestation trick: turning her vision board into a phone wallpaper. The duo reflects on how this simple act has manifested unexpected opportunities and kept their goals front and center in their minds.

As the conversation meanders into the realm of self-care, Kara opens up about the art of saying no and carving out personal time in her hectic schedule. The duo emphasizes the importance of setting boundaries and finding that sweet spot between work and personal life.

Brace yourself for some financial wisdom as Renee breaks down the magic of steady cash flow and the game-changing psychology behind monthly payments. They discuss how this approach can not only transform your financial outlook but also strengthen client relationships.

The episode wraps up on a cozy note as Kara spills the beans on her strategy for rest and rejuvenation during slower seasons. They share stories of intentional family time and the beauty of taking breaks when needed.

But wait, there’s more! Renee introduces a whimsical yearly ritual—writing down and burning things from the past year. It’s a symbolic act of letting go and making room for the new, and the duo dives into how it’s become a powerful tradition in their lives.

Tune in for a real, unfiltered chat between two friends as they share practical tips, personal stories, and some offbeat rituals to help you navigate your own journey to success in the upcoming year.
