Jumping to Cricut with Lauren Stefaniak Smith
At the time this episode releases, Henry Stewarts Photo Studio Operations New York is just over a week away. Joining Daniel for this episode is the chair of the photo studio ops track, and old friend of the podcast Lauren Stefaniak Smith, creative operations director at Cricut. For anyone keeping score at home, Lauren was with Victoria’s Secret the last time she was on this podcast, so we caught up in advance of Photo Studio Ops to talk about her move from VS to Cricut and what advice she had for others who might be considering a change.
