I’ve been feeling pretty “blah” the last couple of days in regards to my business (maybe it was the gloomy weather?). Everyone but myself seems to think that I have been incredibly busy. I just love to work and often don’t know what to do with down time. Relax… not even sure what that word means?
My husband tells me every day “you just need to tell people about you” and as much as I know he is right, I definitely don’t do it enough. It’s hard and scary and uncomfortable and who likes to feel that way?
Last night at an Event Planners Association event I had the opportunity to hear wedding photographer Jen O’Sullivan speak on marketing tips. I really enjoyed what she had to say but I have to tell you, marketing is tricky. I’ve listened to several wedding photographers give their advice on how to properly market and it just gets so confusing!! They often contradict what the other has said and it makes my head spin.
The uncertainty of all this is paralyzing.
I woke up this morning tired of feeling discouraged and promised myself that I was going to something about it. I have a small outline of a plan so far and am going to work on the execution. Rawr!
So – with that said, I am feeling a little brighter and more hopeful about my future as a business owner. Because today I am going to do something different. I am going to let myself feel uncomfortable and scared and possibly rejected.
I took a few photos at last nights event. Such a neat space! Studio 1342 in Los Angeles. Enjoy!
Caprece shooters! That little bubble is filled with olive oil and vinegar. YUM!
The macaroon guy really wanted his photo taken =)
