090: Nichole Healy — Photo Books Made Easy for the Paparazzi Parent 1920 1080 Chase Jennings

When it comes to photos of your kids. What are you having most trouble with?

Organization – You have so many digital photos from newborn phase on up and you don’t know how to compartmentalize it all?

Time – You would love to be the scrapbooking mom but just don’t have the time or energy to do it. Life in a pandemic is all consuming!

Lack of Creativity – You tried apps online but you don’t have the creativity to create a photo book from scratch on your own.

We are going to answer all your questions around preserving photos and precious memories today!

Nichole Healy’s background starts with dance, which she pursued even at the college level. She studied dance at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She always had a desire to build a business, as she hails from an entrepreneurial family and also wanted to create a business that was BOTH meaningful and provided the kind of freedom that allowed her to adventure with her own family!

To that end, Nichole began her entrepreneurial endeavor when she was feeling tremendous mom-guilt over not having photo books done for her family. She thought there had to be an easier way to stay on top of getting her memories archived into photo books. She quickly discovered other parents were also frustrated that their memories were lost to the cloud too.

Her business meets this frustration head on. Memory My Way was founded in 2017 when Nichole started taking on clients one-on-one. Along the way she became a Certified Photo Organizer and today, she has gathered everything she knows about organizing, curating, and getting a plan in place for success into a membership experience. Inside, each member can take control of their photo clutter (if they feel unorganized) and/or put a system in place to get photo books done every year by learning from her self-paced courses and workshops. Each member is paired with a professional designer who custom creates photo books for them – saving tons of precious time and ensuring their books get done. Her mission is to help families rescue their memories from the cloud and remember their best adventures gathered around photo books, instead of another screen!

Nichole is also working on moving the membership to a web and mobile app that will only make all of this easier and more streamlined going forward. She describes her app as “the cloud with a heart” because it will be more concerned with getting memories into our hands instead of just keeping them locked away in the cloud.

Nichole is married to her husband of almost 11 years, who is a pilot, and they have two boys ages 7 and 9. They live near Atlanta, GA in the Northeast Georgia Mountains.

021: Pinkey Patel — The SnapBack – Myths & Misconceptions Busted! 1024 512 Chase Jennings

You will never get your pre-pregnancy bod back after kids (your body will never be the same, but your life will be more full!) and we must understand that celebrities like Heidi Klum and Kate Middleton are anomalies. According to an article in Cosmopolitan, there are 9 realistic ways to snap back.

I am joined by Dr. Pinkey Patel, who knows all too well about what it truly means to “snap back” and has an app called exactly that – The Snap Back – Your Personal Postpartum Assistant. She is a Clinical Pharmacist with 8 years of experience in personal training, as well as a Pre and Post-Natal Corrective Exercise Specialist and is the founder of The SnapBack. She has an expressive three-year-old daughter who has inherited her strong will, love for books, and total inability to sit still. Aside from her full-time job and family, her passion lies in preparing women for birth, the postpartum period, and helping develop thriving moms and thriving babies.

  • Q: Can I use this promo code directly on the Apple and Google Play Store? 
  • A: The promo codes can only be applied on the website only (mobile devices are fine!). They can definitely download the App after to begin using!
  • Q: How late in postpartum can you use this?
  • A: YES! Once postpartum, always postpartum. Our workouts restore from the inside out and since recovery for the core and pelvic floor is often completely skipped, this is a great way to start or supplement to existing workouts. The mom/baby articles stop at 12 weeks, however the workout plan is 14 weeks for a vaginal delivery, and 16 weeks for a c-section delivery.
