Often we don’t have to reinvent the wheel to learn something new – we can just ask experts in the field who can draw on their experience to enlighten us. Below, we’ve shared insights insiders from various industries have shared with us.

Jackie Crowell | Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist

Most people are unaware they can get physical therapy to address their urinary leakage, constipation or pelvic pain – all ailments that pelvic floor physical therapy can help with. Often women assume they have to just put up with painful periods or pain with sex without realizing pelvic floor physical therapy can help. So many patients come in and tell me that they never knew that there was physical therapy for their bladder, for example. And after a few sessions, depending on the patient and case, they are taken from a world of not being able to hold their bladder to not having to scope out where the restroom is everywhere they go.

Dr. Anita “TheGriefDoctor” Green | TheGriefDoctor – Certified Grief Coach and Grief Support Specialist

One thing that I would say is that when we are feeling “some type of way,” about losing someone or something that we’ve been emotionally invested in, then we are grieving. Grief doesn’t just occur when we lose a loved one, but when we lose our jobs, homes, friendships, relationships, our identities and many others. And what happens is that emotional triggers remind us that we are experiencing grief. We want to cry, become angry, feel a sense of loneliness. Grief is all about our emotions and how we process them, with the understanding that everyone grieves differently. Read more>>

When my clients are persistent to ask for updates on when finished photos will be ready after a shoot, I find it necessary to tell them what goes into my process. I may have hundreds of photos that I have to cull through, upload the photos to my digital workspace, get into the creative and technical steps of editing, and with that, may involve indecisiveness and requiring me to walk away from my computer and come back to ensure for a fresh palette of mind and figure out any inconsistencies.

Jaquasia Holmes | Hairstylist

The Time Consumption. My industry as a hairstylist is such a time consuming job. Being a hairstylist is like working 2 full time jobs. Especially operating my business in Atlanta, cosmetology is a very popular industry. Because the industry is very saturated, it is a consistent job to stay relevant and up to date on everything in my field. Alot of people outside of my industry thinks that being a hairstylist is easy: play in hair then going home. Unfortunately it so much more than that. When I am not working 8-10 hour days, I am updating my social media, responding to emails/appointments, restocking inventory, and marketing my business. It is a constant job Read more>>
