Our latest guest for Bold Moves Podcast Episode 181: Rachel Bagan is a mover and a shaker! Rachel recently left her salaried job to fully commit to her branding & graphic design business. It has been bumpy at times but she is so much happier and already seeing growth in her business! If that wasn’t enough, Rachel also began a project called Array in which she scouts CA-based photographers for a bi-annual photography journal. This project is very close to Rachel’s heart as it’s all about collaboration and building fellow creatives/independents up! It also gives her the chance to fully design and curate a publication without any restriction. Once the journal is ready, Rachel also organizes a launch event for each issue release. This entrepreneur journey has been such a growing experience for Rachel and has allowed her to take a risk for my own happiness and to commit to something she truly loves.
