The Basic StoryBrand Framework & Profit First Concepts

with Mary Fisk-Taylor, MBA

M. Photog.Cr., CPP, EA-ASP, ABI, API

PLEASE NOTE: This class is LIVE IN PERSON. It will not be online or filmed for later viewing.

Several years ago, Mary read two books that literally changed her business forever. The first was the sold-out book by Mike Michalowicz, Profit First, which flipped her mindset from missing out on Profit to taking her Profit first. The second was the best-selling book by Donald Miller, StoryBrand, and it changed her business forever. StoryBrand became such an important part of her business that she chose to study in person with the author and his team and become a Certified StoryBrand Guide. 

In this program, Mary will give you an overview of the 7-part Framework of StoryBrand and how this powerful concept has become an integral part of her business. If you have not read the book that is fine, but to get the maximum impact from this program it would be helpful. Other resources available online is the www.mystorybrand.com website where you can follow along with the Framework.

About your Speaker

Mary Fisk-Taylor, MBA

M. Photog.Cr., CPP, EA-ASP, ABI, API

For almost 25 years, Mary Fisk-Taylor has owned a portrait and wedding business with her business partner, Jamie Hayes, in Richmond, Virginia. Hayes & Fisk Photography is one of the most sought-after Portrait and Wedding studios in their industry. Mary and Jamie are both incredibly committed to preserving family legacies, professionally capturing and printing portrait and milestone memories. They both believe that these fleeting moments need to be proudly displayed in family’s homes, not living digitally on phones, computers and modern technology. Mary also partners with her mom and sister in a boutique volume and high school senior portrait studio that caters to local private schools and stresses both excellence in hometown and local client service and technical proficiency in the art of photography.

Mary was very pleased and honored to have received her Master of Photography, Craftsmen of Photography and Certification of Professional Photography in just three short years. Mary has been named Photographer of the Year in 2007 and has won Best Wedding Album of the Year in Virginia several times. Nationally she has had her prints and albums recognized as Grand Imaging Award finalists.  Mary is also a recipient of the prestigious Virginia Award, which honors photographers for their commitment and dedication to their state association, and the business of professional photography. And in 2012, she was awarded the PPA Charities Legacy Award for her work and dedication to the philanthropic arm of PPA. In 2014, Mary was awarded the Charles H. (Bud) Haynes Award for her distinguished service to PPA and its members and for encouraging business awareness and practices in the field of professional image-making. And in 2015, Mary was honored to receive the National Award from the Southeastern Professional Photographers Association for her commitment and dedication to Professional Photography and has gone on to receive two more National Awards from other affiliates.   Mary has also taught and lectured all of the United States, as well as the Philippines, Korea, Canada, Mexico and Italy and most recently South Africa.

Mary is of course most proud of her two beautiful children, Alexandra and Jackson. Her husband, Daryl, and she enjoys the flexibility and joy that owning a profitable photography studio has allowed their family. Mary currently serves on the Executive Committee of the PPA Board of Directors, is a proud member of the Society of XXV, and is a past President of the PPA Board of Charities. She holds offices and board positions for her state professional photography affiliate, Virginia PPA and serves on several philanthropic and local boards. She is extremely active with Operation Smile International and has served as a staff photographer for several events and missions. At the age of 42 Mary was named one of Virginia’s Top 40 under 40 for her leadership in the community, volunteer and charity work and her business savvy.
