Kyle Goldie

Business Coach & Educator - Goldie Coaching LLC

I help photographers & wedding pros (of all types) book more of their dream clients through organic, attraction-based inbound marketing. That said, I'm multi-passionate (maybe you are, too!) and I serve others in other ways as well. SEO, affiliate marketing, online education, monetizing your blog, you name it. Let's do it.

What inspired you to start your business?

I wanted to live a life of purpose. A life of choice and freedom. And I wanted to build my own dream, not someone else's.And the thing that pushes me forward on a daily basis is my family. Everything I do is for them. Everything.

What is something you would say to someone who is struggling in their first few years of business? Is there something you struggled with and learned from in those first few years?

Get a mentor. If you can't find one, hire a 1:1 coach. If you can't afford that, buy a course that is specific to helping you achieve your desired result. Don't go at it DIY with trial & error. That will only cost you both time & money. Get out of your own way.

What hobbies, causes, or activities are you passionate about aside from your work?

I love to learn, and I even consider it a hobby. I actually enjoy going to the library and getting a new business book. I think Amazon should make me as a preferred buyer since they're here at my house delivering new books on a near-weekly basis, too. Ha!Outside of that, I absolutely love traveling (my wife and I have been to 24 countries and counting), and we especially love visiting small towns. Bring on small-town culture all day, every day.
