On today’s episode we’re talking with Sara Alepin, CEO of Photos From the Harty, 2X podcast host, and CEO of District Bliss Events, a community of ambitious creatives and business owners who want to expand their networks quickly, build their businesses with ease, and just find their people. Sara is a master connector and a cross-community promotions queen! Tune in to hear her best organic community growth hacks, tips on all things collaboration, social proof, and how to make accessible content for your business. 


  • Sara talks about her journey from getting injured as a photography teacher and not being able to go back to her profession to creating District Bliss and then creating her two podcasts.
  • She discusses the concept behind District Bliss: it’s a community of entrepreneurs and creative small business owners who support each other. 
  • She talks about the importance of creating strong community relationships in any business which is often overlooked by many entrepreneurs.
  • Sara says that hosting an event is great PR: getting a business in front of a community is key and collaborating with others who are interested in what you do is also important.
  • She tells how testimonials can really help your business: it’s basically another person selling what you do and really great social proof!
  • For Sara, social media and blogging are two organic tools that have really helped her to spread awareness about her businesses.
  • Understanding the concept of “accessibility made easy”: inclusivity should always be taken into consideration when creating content for a webpage or for a podcast, for example.
