How in the world did I get here?
I came from being a single mom at the age of 16 not knowing where to go in life… to owning a 6 figure business that my husband and I built from the ground up. No college education, no degrees, and a heck of a lot of things(and people) in our lives that said we’d never be here—all working against us.
I’m 25 years old and have 3 kids. Lets be real- building this baby when I HAVE BABIES has been HARD. But if I can do it, so can you. Stop making excuses. Invest in yourself, sign up for that workshop, build that website, pay for the mentoring. Stop thinking for one second that if you don’t invest in yourself, you can expect your clients to invest in you. This goes for every kind of business, not just photography.
I am approached almost daily by others asking what the secret is, how I get to travel so much, how I get clients, how I do it all with kids. Don’t let social media fool you if it has, its HARD work. So many sacrifices are made in order to build a successful business and it’s 5% actual photography and 95% business/ marketing/ accounting and things I was NEVER taught how to do and don’t come natural to me. I don’t have a one size fits all solution. Put in the work, and you will find your own version of success. Be bold, chase your dreams, and NEVER get comfortable. The second you get comfortable, you stop pushing yourself.
I don’t have it all together, and I'm still learning on a day to day basis. I don't think any of us will ever "arrive" to finally know EVERYTHING and cease to have the need for growth. I am constantly pushing, growing and dreaming. Not just dreaming, but dreaming BIG. I have so many plans, visions and things I want to do with this little ole life of mine.
One of those things is to share what I’ve learned, the mistakes I’ve made, and the path I took to get here with other photographers who feel like they’re ready to throw in the towel. I finally feel ready to start my education part of photography journey that I’ve felt very called to for a long time… but have waited for the right moment to declare “I WANT TO TEACH.” This is that moment. I feel like God woke me up today and said "It's time."
I'm ready, are you?
