Today’s Tuesday Chats With… post features my friend and fellow photographer, Emma Weise. I specifically chose to feature Emma, not only because she inspires me to want to do and be more, but because her passion and calling in life is exactly that – to inspire. Hence the name of one of her brands – Inspired by Emma. Over the past year or so, I’ve watched Emma forging her way, building her brand online and always trying out new things. So without further ado, here’s Emma…

 

1. Something that I’m…
...proud of…
I’m pretty proud of the fact that I have had the courage to live my purpose… being a creative catalyst.
2. Something I wish…
…I could try for the first time…
paragliding… I imagine it’s a pretty incredible experience… and travel overseas [it’s crazy – but the furthest I’ve been is Mauritius!!!]
…people would…
be more true to who they are…
3. A lesson…
…I learned, which I’d share, is…
figure out what your strengths are… and maximise it! Spending a whole lot of time trying to fix your weaknesses is wasted energy! Rather be aware of your weakness, and find ways around your gaps so that you continue excelling at what you’re good at!
…I wish someone had taught me, is…
Life is too short to be scared of doing what we are meant to be doing!
4. The ‘someone’ I…
…turn to for advice is…
I have a few people I turn to for different things… each one has a different strength – and I know that they will give me really sound advice when needed!
…would give my last Rolo to…
My son [because he’d probably be keeping a keen eye on it], but I’d also happily share with hubby!
…would love to be stuck in an elevator with is…
Richard Branson [It would be incredible to tap his mind], or maybe… Marianne Williamson, because I think I could learn a lot from her!
5. The place I …
…dream of visiting is…
Tuscany, New York, and a good surf spot with no sharks
…am most happy is…
in my back garden on the weekend… surrounded by family and friends, great food and some good bubbly!
6. Things that…
…inspire me…
most forms of creativity… I get happily lost in Pinterest quite often, and I also get incredibly inspired by the random things all around me – from patterns on material, to the fractals in a leaf!
…educate me…
Right now, I would say it’s the blogs I read. I’m really enjoying learning from those who have been there – done that [can I also class TED as a blog??]
…entertain me…
music
8. My reason for…
…getting up in the morning…
be a creative catalyst in the world! I love using my creativity to help others make a change / difference.
9. My approach to…
…life is…
“Live for today, dream of tomorrow, learn from yesterday” – Albert Einstein
…business is…
Use a little fresh thinking to shape success – it’s business unusual
10. My perfect….
…day starts with…
COFFEE!!!!!
