I don’t

want this to be a depressing post. I really don’t… that’s just not my style! But I think I need to be honest about this…. I get a lot of emails and questions that go a little something like this “I’ve been in business for a year officially and I’m just wondering how you grew so fast.” Some are a little more in depth but often, I receive emails that are just short and sweet and straight to the point. “I want to grow and I want it to happen FAST”. I don’t blame them… who really wants a SLOW growing business?! No one…. at least no one that I know! We all want to move quickly because that’s the world we live in.

We’ll

be the first to admit that we’re not pros at this. We don’t have it all figured out and we don’t claim that we do things the “right way”… but Michael and I are often asked during coaching sessions and workshops “How do you balance LIFE and WORK”?! Well, we’re still working on that. However, over the past year we have been finding more ways to make sure that we’re balancing LIFE, WORK and TRAVELING. Michael and I have found that when we had weeks where we worked at home in the morning but then traveled to an engagement shoot in the evening, we didn’t feel like we could really get a lot done.

How To Grow Your Blog Following
HOW-TO-INCREASE-YOUR-BLOG-TRAFFIC

This

is probably my MOST asked question in Coaching sessions, FAQ emails and workshops. I encourage blogging for SO many reasons….. if I were to explain to you ALL of the reasons I blog, it would take about an hour!! I just shared this at the UNITED conference in Santa Barbara and the more I talk and share about it, the more I realize how many people need to hear about it!
