Monday Motivation!

Happy Monday!!

I'm so excited to share with you the first of many Monday Motivation posts to come! If you didn't get a chance to read my first post today then be sure to check it out! (Explains what this post is all about)

Since I want to start sharing with you things I find motivational and inspirational I figured I would start off by sharing a video of a man I look up to on many levels. A visionary, entrepreneur, businessman you...Non other than Steve Jobs. Steve is quoted quite often, but what he talks about in this video resognates with me on a very deep level. It's made me realize that each and every one of us has the ability to influence change in this world.

It makes you think..what's holding me back?? We all have ideas, visions, dreams, whatever you want to call them...but what holds us back from turning them into reality is the amount of doubt we have in ourselves. I meet with so many photographers that look up to others and compare themselves with them. They talk about how they wish they could get to thier level...but forget to realize that at one time those photographers were in their shoes just beginning with the same aspirations.

I watch this video constantly to remind myself that I can do so much more than I think. Enjoy! Have a great Monday!

Out with the Mondays!

I've now been a full time photographer for 7 months, and during the transition I have come to learn how to prioritize and run an efficient business! The key word: PRIORITIZE. This doesn't necessarily even mean prioritizing in my business! Over the last few months I have learned how to prioritize other areas of my life. My health, fitness, finances, relationships, etc. Believe it or not my business is one of my last priorities!

You may think I'm crazy for doing that, but this doesn't mean that all my time is dedicated to other things other than my business, and that I don't care about it. I spend quite a lot of time on it, but significantly less time than I use to. You might think that by spending less time working I've negatively impacted the business, but it hasn't one bit! It's growing faster than ever, and I couldn't be more excited!
