It’s Happening TODAY!

  • CreativeLive Photo Week Today 4:15 EST

I really can’t believe it’s GO time already!! I feel like it was just last week that we got the call from CreativeLive asking if we would be a part of Photo Week! Well! It’s HERE! Today at 4:15pm EST, I’m going LIVE and I’m freaking out!! I don’t care if I only have 20 people watching and most of those 20 consist of family members… it’s still nerve racking to fly all the way to Seattle for 24 hours just for a 90min presentation! It better be GOOD!

The Workshop Experience

  • September 2015 | Behind the Scenes

I’m tired and I sound like I’m an 80 year old man. My voice is gone but my heart is full. This past week we did something that we have never attempted before…. we hosted our FIRST EVER, large scale destination workshop. When I mean LARGE SCALE, I mean 18 attendees instead of 12, a full blown styled shoot at a real wedding venue and over 20+ hours of teaching content! whew!! It was amazing! I’m still recovering but I’ll tell you what… this is the BEST type of “tired”. I’m sure some people wouldn’t think that hosting 18 people for over two days and teaching non-stop would be fun but I LOVE IT.

Micro Changes, Macro Results

This isn’t going to be a long post. I’m not going to sit here and write paragraphs and paragraphs about how to get more business FAST! I don’t think it’s that easy. The truth is, we just finished a long 2 day workshop and the resounding theme of it was that success doesn’t come to those that want a quick fix. It comes to those who are passionate, who fight for it and who WAIT for it. I’ll be honest, I grew quickly when I first started my business….but I also only slept 4-5 hours a night in college because I was working hard to make this thing happen.
