In this episode, I talk about my long journey of being with The Knot for 7 years and how terrible I was treated when finally deciding to end my contract with them.

I lay out my thoughts on where I think things are going, why I believe new photographers should be pricing themselves accordingly, and overall how upset this entire process made me. I was not prepared to be threatened to be sent to debt collections because of their wrongdoing, but that’s happened. It’s a long episode, but if you love drama and want to save thousands of dollars a year, you’ll enjoy it.

Thanks for listening!

In this episode, I discuss a new, free app and service I’m using to help make sure I’m saving for taxes. It helps watch for new money hitting my bank account and notifies me how much to set aside. It’s a total game changer.

Full discloser, I was not paid by the company. I just genuinely like and use this service and wanted to share it with you. However, since recording the episode, I did sign up for a referral link. I don’t know if I get any kick back for referring you since it is a free service, but I just wanted to be transparent. I hope you find Catch beneficial.
