Operating a profitable photography business can be a challenge. But it gets easier once you understand that marketing with your heart and with integrity are both essential to a successful business.
Marketing at its core is planting seeds consistently. Tend to your garden and you will be rewarded.
But it can be frustrating when you are trying to establish a profitable photography business because it can take time to see the results you want.
Consistency is the key word. Show up with your heart every single day. Being in integrity and uniquely you.
One day in the very near future you will look back and be in awe of how much your garden grew right in front of your eyes.
I am sharing these photos because I want to remind myself of the journey. 10 years ago, we were in debt, created my first dream board with Keith (written in sharpie on a massive post it note) that included paying off this debt, saving a certain amount of money and moving to Paris.
For all of this to happen, we had to get clear on what our goals were for our family and our business.
At that moment it seemed like a pipe dream. I don’t even think we knew how serious we were when we decided that we were going to transition our business from just getting by and create a profitable business that worked for us.
That is where it started. We kept showing up for our business every single day with passion and purpose.
We didn’t know that in a little over a decade our determination would result in this being our first apartment in France. (and it ended up being not too far off what I had envisioned.)
It can be exhausting being a small business owner. There’s times you may even question whether or not it’s all worth it.
Deep down you need to believe you have everything you need to do this. When you change your business and with clarity start working towards your goals, you change your life.
Water those seeds. Dream big. Create dependable income. Live from abundance. Fulfill your dreams.
