Why We Don’t Like Asking for Help

  • Ask Anything

I have a love/hate relationship with asking for help or really any advice for that matter. You see, when you ask for help, you aren’t just simply asking a question, you’re inviting someone else to weigh in on your situation. Maybe I’m the only one who’s like this but I’m VERY protective over this business that Michael and I have created over the years. We’ve worked hard to get it to where it is today and so I don’t go to just anyone for advice. I ask for advice from people who have done what I want to do and who I TRUST.

Real Stories & Real Change | Why Our Heart is in Coaching

  • Coaching for Any Creative Small Business Owner

A few years back I was asked to do one-on-one mentoring by a few people. Only a few other photographers offered mentoring session (like 3 different photographers… crazy, I know). Oh how times have changed. There are hundreds of photographers offering mentoring and coaching these days. It’s not a bad thing. I’m so thankful that the photography industry has embraced the whole “lets love each other” thing so well. Some people worry about photographers offering mentoring too soon while they’re still newbies themselves and my thought is this… GREAT coaches will continue to offer GREAT coaching sessions.

  • Coaching

I had the honor of meeting with Brittany of Brittany Claud Photography! We sat in my office and talked about everything from print labs to Bokeh. Last week I was super busy and so Michael took Bokeh to his grandparent’s house for a few days. I totally forgot that some of my coaching photographers… actually, ALL of them have wanted to meet Bokeh! Poor Britt, she missed out on the spastic ball of apricot colored fluff that we call our dog. He’s just been crazy recently!! whew! Two shoes have hit the trash can because of him recently!! Yikes!
