What I Would Tell the Old Me

  • The Rising Tide Society Startup Series

I remember starting my business in college and feeling like I could do anything. I thought I had time for everything! There was one weekend where I literally drove 2 hours to a retreat on Friday night and then left and drove 4 hours to shoot a wedding and then drove 4 hours back to the retreat only to be there for the send-off service Sunday morning and then we headed 2 hours back to campus.
