Episode 26: From Vision to Execution: Tackling New Ideas with Gavin Wade

So, Here's the Thing with Laylee Emadi

Welcome to “So, Here’s the Thing!” In this episode, Gavin Wade shares how he approached fulfilling a need in the photography industry with his company, Cloudspot. Listen in as he shares about the risk and reward in turning an idea into reality, along with steps to take if you’re ready to take the step towards execution! Gavin and his wife Erin started their photography business just 3 months into dating one another. A year later, after just returning from their honeymoon, they took a leap of faith and turned their shared passion into a full-time profession! Shooting between 30 and 50 weddings a year, they very quickly learned that there were never enough hours in the day. Gavin saw a huge hole in their workflow and their client’s experience when it came to delivering photos. From there, CloudSpot was born! Fast forward several years (and a couple kiddos) later and CloudSpot has become known for being the fastest, easiest, and most customizable way for photographers to deliver and sell their work online! Gavin has a heart for helping fellow photographers be successful in their businesses and creating solutions that give them more time to be doing what they love most!
