scatterbrained and they showed me how much I enjoyed pouring into other photographer’s lives and businesses. I like to call it “paying it forward”… because so SO many photographers have invested into me and my business the last three years. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for Justin & Mary, Jasmine, Jessica Smith and many others. They just reached out and loved me when they had no reason to and I will be FOREVER grateful for that. It changed my life, my perspective on this industry as a whole and my business. I have never had the thought “Gosh, there’s no way I’m sharing all that I’ve learned with the COMPETITION”… because the leaders that I follow in this industry don’t think that way. They’ve taught me better than that. Tomorrow, my hope and prayer is that I gain 17 new friends and have a blast sharing what I have learned the last 3 and a 1/2 years that I have been in business. I’m praying for wisdom and strength and NO TANGENTS… I tend to ramble when I’m nervous!!! I’ll be sure to post about the wonderful sponsors and the venue and the attendees… but for now, I just want to thank my husband for dealing with me this week and I want to thank my sweet mother in law for coming down to help out BRIGHT and early tomorrow morning! Here’s to a GREAT Workshop Experience!!!
