There are perks to being your own boss: no time clock to punch, no bra required, and you can work from home with your dogs in your lap...
But it’s not always glamorous. In fact, when I started out, my business was based on fear. I was afraid of other photographers, afraid to tell someone my prices, afraid to step out from behind my work, afraid that someone would call me a fraud (and they would be right.)
I built a little island I operated on by myself because fear told me to and it wasn’t until a few years into it that I realized I needed people. I needed other humans who “got it,” I needed to know I wasn’t alone, I needed to be a part of something bigger than myself.
This week I am hosting a virtual party live for photographers. I only do this 2x a year so don’t miss your chance! Over 10,000 of y’all have joined and it’s my way to say “thank you” to this industry. We weren’t meant to be islands or go it alone. If you need help marketing, jump on in. There’s room for you at photowebinar.com! Already signed up? Say hi below so I can look for your name!
And for the rest of you: find your people, stop glorifying busy, believe in abundance, work hard, and be kind. You can do this, you are not a fraud, and you are worthy to get paid to do what you love.
