Today’s episode is a VERY special listen, with an extraordinary guest discussing some incredibly important topics. It also happens to be one of my favourite episodes to date, and I don’t say that about just any episode!
Meet Elana Jadallah.
Elana, or as some call her, Loo, is an entrepreneur, photographer and educator who runs the blog ElanaLoo.com and co-founded Dérive Collective, a social media consulting and photography company. She’s wildly passionate about entrepreneurship, travel, wellness and sustainability and welcomes us along on our journey in hopes we are too!
Elana likes to spend her days feet planted in the sand with camera in hand, on the shores of Hawai’i or coast of Maine depending on the time of year. With an infinite love for the outdoors, beautiful photographs and experiencing new places, she’s shaped her life and career around travel and using her platforms to impact the world. She shares her experiences and adventures while empowering us with tools to build a sustainable life and business, ways to live more mindfully and inspiration to experience the depth of this world.
I came across Elana through the power of Instagram, first becoming a fan of her partner Aaron’s beautiful photos, and then finding Elana after she and Aaron had a gorgeous photography session with Lindsay Roman. Immediately drawn to Elana’s message around simplicity, sustainability in life and work, and her focus on the environment, I was beyond honoured to have had a chance to speak with Elana and could have talked to her all day!
This episode is a must listen and covers some significant topics that deserve more attention:
Elana cultivates such a beautiful positive attitude, not only in herself but in everyone around her as well. She also happens to be every bit as lovely to speak to in real life as she seems online, and her Instagram account is one of my fave on IG to follow! Make sure to check her out, along with this POWERFUL episode that will change the way you think and how you show up in your own life.
Don’t forget to check out the many resources mentioned during the interview as well, all found below.
