Welcome 7-Figure Educators! In today’s episode, I have the privilege of diving into the remarkable journey of Mecca Gamble, a highly acclaimed photographer, branding maven, and owner of Indigo, an agency offering a comprehensive spectrum of creative services while steadfastly upholding the values of authenticity and individuality.
Mecca's journey began with aspirations of emulating the legendary Oprah Winfrey, but it led her to a different form of artistic expression as a celebrated wedding photographer. Her focus? Capturing the boundless joy of black women. However, the onset of the pandemic prompted a significant pivot in her career towards personal branding and lifestyle photography for entrepreneurs. This transformation was fueled by the unwavering faith and her profound desire to create a lasting legacy.
Get ready to be inspired by Mecca’s story and be reminded to follow your divine calling and make purposeful pivots on the journey to success. Tune in to this enriching episode of the 7-Figure Educator Podcast, and let Mecca's journey inspire you to chart your own path towards a purpose-driven and creatively fulfilling life.
"I don't think a lot of us recognize God's preparation for us. And so even though it felt really hard and even though it was really uncomfortable and I did not want to be there, I always knew that I would be in that next place soon. I believe that this wasn't the end of my story." - Mecca Gamble
"My faith is what I want to be remembered by, not necessarily my work. Like the work. Yes, but what I want when people say my name, is to say 'Mecca', "You know what? Mecca has a lot of faith." - Mecca Gamble
"What's challenging for people is listening to the voice and being obedient to it. Sometimes that obedience means saying no. It means giving up on things. It means the pivot." - Dr. Erica Jordan Thomas
