When I first began my business I was super naive and clueless in many areas of business. I was just a teenager in love with photographing people and wanting to create a living off of it. It didn’t take long for me to realize that owning a business is SO MUCH MORE than just having an eye for good photos. Not only do you need the passion, but you need the drive to make things happen! You need the tools and to learn marketing, and numbers, and don’t even get me started with taxes (god bless accountants).
Most of the time in life, our biggest obstacles become our most valued lessons. Although if you would have said those exact words to me when I was 15 I would have probably blown you off with some snarky comment about how life’s not fair.
It’s true, probably more than anything; life is not fair. But, the bad times mold us and guide us to the person we’re suppose to become.
For years I always knew I needed a blog but, the template I used for my website didn’t allow it. A few weeks ago (after the Bayside Workshop) I decided it was time. No more waiting around, I needed to launch a blog and dive in head first! It wasn’t until I actually launched my blog that I realized how important it was to have one or how much it would really effect my business.
