Guest Bio

Vincent and Elizabeth have run businesses together since 2005, after working together as photojournalists for a newspaper. Their first business was Elizabeth Vincent Photography, shooting weddings, corporate and commercial photography, as well as professional sports. Between the 2 of them they’ve covered some pretty amazing events, including Wrestlemania! the Dalai Lama and Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday party. They now teach other freelancers, entrepreneurs and photographers how to build businesses to create a life of time, money and location freedom through two other businesses. Vincent’s book Freelance to Freedom was published in 2018, and they now run Total Life Freedom- which is a mastermind community for freelancers and entrepreneurs, and The Business of Photography, which helps photographers learn to master the business side of the photography world. Elizabeth and Vincent have been happily married for sixteen years and homeschool their three sons outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
