Please excuse this post being a day late! I was exhausted yesterday and didn’t get anything written up. I blame hosting a workshop the SAME DAY as daylight savings. What was I thinking??
I loved every minute of the workshop on Sunday! The group of girls that attended (we were sad to miss out on meeting two of them!) were the most fun, outgoing bunch. Spending the day with them reminded me how much I love getting to do what I do…and how special it is that we’re in a little sect of the photography industry that’s pretty much dominated by women! How many people can say that about their job?? I’m proud to be a woman and an entrepreneur!
It’s one thing to get to wake up every day and get to do my dream job. That’s AMAZING in itself. But it’s on another level to get to share what I’ve learned over the past few years to build my business to help other people get to do the same thing. I didn’t go to college, so before I was a photographer, I thought having a career was out of my reach. I never imagined I could own my own business and that learning how to run it would help other people get closer to making that dream happen for themselves. It’s like my dream met another dream and had a bunch of babies! Weird analogy, sure. But since I built this business from nothing (a $200 Canon Rebel, to be exact!), getting to share what I have fought to learn over the past few years is like being able to multiply my dream by tenfold.
One of the reasons the workshops have gone so well is because of all of the wonderful people who have helped me make them a success! That saying “it takes a village” applies to hosting a workshop! I couldn’t do it without the hard work of my husband, John, and my friends who are kind enough to support me in doing this. It means so much to me that they took time out of their day on Sunday to help put everything together and create an amazing experience for the attendees!
