Episode 49: Guns N' Roses Tour Photographer, Scuba Diver & Animal Advocate: Kat Benzova

January 22, 2020

Kat Benzova is the lead tour photographer for Guns N’ Roses, and has also captured rare moments with iconic bands like Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, Kiss, Skid Row, ZZ Top, to name a few. While her career certainly appears sexy, there is no shortage of demanding hours, including world travel and losing sight of time zones across continents. She talks about the challenges of working in a male dominated industry, and her strategies to achieve balance while she’s away weeks or months at a time. Kat was born near healing mountain streams in Slovakia and has vivid memories foraging herbs and mushrooms with her grandmother. She left home at 14 to pursue a modeling career, a path that exposed her to world travel and independence at a young age. She fell in love with scuba diving in Bali, and is a waterwoman on a mission to save animals and use her photography and platform for good.

January 16, 2020

Bianca Mitchell from Ocean Goddess Surf joins me in the mobile van studio to let me in on her childhood influences, from all things art to ocean between South Carolina and Kentucky. She admits in hindsight she had a charmed life, and is grateful for the tough experiences that encouraged her to become financially and emotionally independent later in life. In between hosting community surf events, private clinics and introducing women to the ocean, she and her husband also run a successful AirbnB in Big Bear as a result of her years hustling real estate. Like many women on the podcast, Bianca is brave enough to divulge her relationship with therapy, how she’s used it as a proactive tool over the years, and how creating a life plan can be the guiding light in a sometimes very dark place.

Laura rounds out her brand with her most recent addition, the AllSwell deck which allows you to draw a card and write/draw at your leisure to get inspired! Write and rip, write and burn, journaling is a form of therapy and has extensive research backing the benefits. Guys - this includes you too!
