Let me tell you a little story about business strategy. It starts with the career that I had before I started my photography business. I’m still involved with that company as a part-owner and board member and work about 20 hours a month for them. It’s not a lot but it keeps me connected to…

You don’t have to be going and doing constantly to be successful or happy. You can miss a night out with friends to have a quiet night with your family at home and be fulfilled. You don’t have to see everything and do everything to feel complete. A calm life doesn’t mean boring. It means…

Have you ever felt this way? You have just a crappy, crappy day and let it affect how you feel about everything rather than just moving on. You know you have a bad day at work or an upset customer and you think, Why does my life suck so much? Sometimes if I don’t have…

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the new year. What are my plans for my life, for my business? What do I want to accomplish? What do I want to change? How many weddings do I want to book in 2014? How will I market my senior photography business? How do I continue…

Do you think you’re awesome? I think I am. People have a hard time thinking highly of themselves, bragging or tooting their own horn. Why is that? Why is it hard for us to be proud of what we’ve done and who we are? There are special awesome qualities that make you who you are…
