On the Make Episode 27 on finding inspiration and fostering your creativity with Barbora Kurcova

Barbora’s Instagram account is one of my favourites, full of creativity and inspired ideas. In this episode I chat to Barbora about how she finds the time for her side-hustle alongside her full time 9-5.

One of Barbora’s many talents is taking self-portraits and I knew this was something I had to chat with her about. She shares her tips on how to get comfortable in front of the camera and how to take your own portraits. If portraits are something you want to start sharing more of in your online world but feel uncomfortable in front of the camera and unsure on how to take your own portraits check out her free ebook on taking self-portraits.
