WHERE SOUL MEETS STRATEGY
AROUND HERE, WE SETTLE FOR NOTHING LESS THAN PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL FULFILLMENT
AS A BUSINESS COACH FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS.. THERE'S A FEW THINGS WE WANT YOU TO KNOW.
One. We firmly believe you have the power to not only build an amazing business - but an amazing life. Your business should work for you - not the other way around.
Your business should be a tool to create your dream life, rather than being the end destination. We want to help you build the business of your dreams, so you can continue building the life of your design.
You only have one life, and we believe you should enjoy it. We know what it's like to rebuild your life or your business (or both simultaneously) and we're here to help you do the same.
As your business coach for photographers we have one clear focus. No more surviving, we're building a new path. And claiming our weekends back in the meantime.
Two. We believe the perfect business is where soul meets strategy. It's time to take your business from side gig to CEO.
Around here, we're firm believers in energy matching strategy. That's why we want to identify what feels GOOD and FUN to our clients, before diving into the data that's been driving their business so far. We like to dive into the strategies that will propel your business forward- melding your intuition with technique and systems proven to bring in more money, while taking less time.
Once we have those systems in place? We're all about utilizing batching techniques to map out the rest of the year so you can take the guess work out of their business and spend more time doing what they love. Hello, zone of genius!
Three. Discomfort of mediocrity, always. we prioritize the path towards happiness, even if it's less traveled. Around here we push past discomfort to better our skills, our motivation, our mindset, our portfolios, our systems, our alignment.
We prioritize empowerment. We hold space for being ourselves. We celebrate everyone. We're ending scarcity mindset. We believe your success is our success. We believe that a beautiful business supports a beautiful life.
We know you deserve to be empowered and seen in all of your glory - not just as a business owner, but as a human being, too. We can't wait to help you get there.

"I FOUND YOU ON MY EXPLORE PAGE. I BINGED EVERY EPISODE OF THAT’S MY PERSONAL BUSINESS OVER 3 DAYS AND MOST I’VE LISTENED TO MULTIPLE TIMES.
I WAS JUST WALKING AROUND MY HOUSE SMILING ALL DAY LONG. SINCE THEN I’VE BOUGHT THE PINTEREST COURSE, CALLING ALL BRANDS, THE HARSH LIGHT AND ARTIFICIAL LIGHT COURSE (AND QUIT MY OTHER JOB TO GO FULL TIME). IT HONESTLY FEELS LIKE YOU GAVE ME THE KEYS TO A NEW LIFE....
"eden should just have my business card on file because every single time this woman drops a new course or resource, I buy it! I started with calling all brands, and then had to also purchase systems, strategy, and soul. there is so much info and so many voices talking about what you need to do and all that stuff, but eden said it in such a way that has actually clicked for me in a way it never has. i'm still going back to this course over and over again because i learn something new each time. i'll should it from the rooftops.. eden freaking strader is a genius and knows what she's talking about!"
...YOU HAVE COMPLETELY CHANGED MY MINDSET IN ALL ASPECTS OF MY LIFE AND BUSINESS. ALL OF MY FEELINGS, DREAMS AND FEARS FEEL SO VALIDATED WHEN I’M IN YOUR LITTLE CORNER OF SPOTIFY. BECAUSE OF YOU, I AM MOTIVATED TO WORK HARD BUT ALSO MOTIVATED TO TAKE TIME OFF FOR ALL THE THINGS I LOVE."
"i am 100x grateful for you! You've spoken to my little business soul in ways no one else has been able to. and if just one person can experience the experience i've had with you, i just know that not only will it make their business better, but their life (too)"
"literally don't know where i'd be without you, i'm just endlessly grateful for you eden"
IT SHOULD BE EMPOWERING. IT SHOULD BE ACTIONABLE.
IT SHOULD BE A MIX OF DATA, STRATEGY, AND HARD WORK.

A little about me - Eden - the founder and business coach here behind the business. I'm a destination wedding photographer turned business coach, now leading hundreds of creative entrepreneurs like yourself in building a life of artistic growth, wealth, and freedom.
Here we are a queer affirming (and owned), BIPOC inclusive, safe and loving space. Nothing less than celebration for everyone will be tolerated in our online sphere. Hatred and bigotry are the only things not welcome here.
Together, I hope we can create a beautiful world IRL and virtually - where all humans are thriving, loved, and fulfilled personally and financially.
HOW DO I EVEN PUT INTO WORDS HOW EDEN’S COURSES HAVE HELPED ME AS A PHOTOGRAPHER - IT’S LIKE I GAINED YEARS OF VALUABLE EXPERIENCE LITERALLY OVERNIGHT.
I HAVE INVESTED IN ALL OF HER LIGHTING COURSES AND THEY HAVE GIVEN ME SOOOOO MUCH CONFIDENCE ON WEDDING DAYS & DURING SHOOTS. I UNDERSTAND LIGHT ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LEVEL, AND SEE THINGS THAT I LITERALLY DIDN’T SEE OR THINK ABOUT BEFORE.
MY WORK SINCE HAS BEEN SO MUCH MORE CONSISTENT AND EASIER TO EDIT BECAUSE OF THESE AND I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL!
ALSO - I WOULD ADD, I INVEST IN EDUCATION AND AM SOMETIMES SLIGHTLY DISAPPOINTED. IT IS LITERALLY THE OPPOSITE WITH EVERY PIECE OF EDUCATION I HAVE PURCHASED FROM (EDEN) - I LEARN SO MUCH AND HAVE EVEN REWATCHED AND GONE BACK TO THEM THEY ARE SO GOOD! YOU HAVE BECOME SUCH A TRUSTED RESOURCE FOR EDUCATION FOR ME-SO KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING!"
