About our guest:

Ron Clifford is an artist, coach, and creative mentor with a gift for helping unlock the creative ninja that lives inside every person. He not only explores the world through the connections his camera helps him create; Ron also helps others overcome roadblocks and see blind spots in own creative journeys. In Ron's words: “I believe we only truly reach our potential when we learn to help others and lift each other up. We were made for community and family, and in a certain way, that's what I do. I build community and strengthen bonds through the experience of photography.  Nothing can compare to getting involved in building up another person's real life.
I have the best job in the world.”
