Which pattern best describes your reality?
Be honest, this affects every area of your life!
Do you have scattered, unorganized workflows that always lead to feeling behind, your clients aren’t impressed, you have increased anxiety and stresswith every shoot that you do… this makes you feel incapable, unprofessional, behind, overwhelmed, snippy, irritated and discouraged?
t’s understandable WHY you feel these things… but here’s what’s at stake… when EVERY shoot pushes you further and further behind, it’s also pushing a wedge between you and your family. It’s a SCARY cycle. Your attitude, your stress level and your feelings of inadequacy don’t STAY IN YOUR OFFICE…. your family feels that. Your husband, your wife, your kids, your friends… they all experience you to be on edge and overwhelmed… and that has lasting effects in your home and in your LIFE!
Is ineffective marketing, inappropriate pricing & poor online presence leading to booking the wrong clients or not booking clients at all? Wrong clients will strip all of the passion and excitement out of your business. You’ll start to dread getting emails because of the complaints, you’ll start to question your own work because of the dissatisfaction of your demanding clients, you’ll start to grow weary of the work because you don’t see ANYTHING to show for it in your bank account…. these patterns eventually convince you that this idea of making your photography a business…. well it was a good idea… but this was NOT what you signed up for & you’re desperately ready for a change. You’re ready to experience new life and new joy in your business!
I get it… I see this happen all of the time and you’re not wrong to feel this way…. but you have to understand that if this pattern continues, you will not only be burned out, you will be at risk of being bankrupt. 80% of businesses close their doors because of issues just like this…leaving them with debt and disappointment. This doesn’t have to be your story… in fact, it can’t be your story! It is totally possible to experience peace AND profit in your business!
Maybe you’re doing ok… you’re booking, you’re shooting, you’re editing, and your clients seem happy… but something about your brand, your social media presence, your pricing structure and your portfolio isn’t adding up. No matter how hard you try, you are STUCK at your current price point… and you know that in order to make the money you need from your business…you would have to shoot 30-40 weddings a YEAR at those current prices.
You’re at a crossroads…. how are you going to shoot THAT much and still maintain balance in your life? I remember shooting 42 weddings a year… my friends never saw me, I missed concerts, trips, girls nights…. I missed family dinners, holiday traditions, and just laying on the couch with Michael…. I know it feels like you’re stuck… like you can’t even get out of this trap of a situation… but you CAN. I promise you that you CAN because I’ve been in your shoes and I’ve done it!
Just Imagine What Life Could Look Like
Support Your Family Hit Financial Goals
When your business makes more money, you can finally do the things you’ve always wanted to do through your business. Maybe you’re wanting to PAY DOWN DEBT…. maybe you’re wanting to GO FULL TIME… maybe you’re wanting to SURPRISE YOUR CHILDREN with an AMAZING TRIP! Maybe you’re wanting to stop living PAYCHECK to PAYCHECK… or maybe you are just simply ready for your business to be profitable so that you can have peace that you’re doing the right thing with your life!
Avoid Burnout The Pain That Comes With It
Burnout happens when your passion fades and your energy is exhausted. When you have a business that is thriving, you won’t run the risk of losing your business to burnout because you’ll have the tools you need to feel in control. The best part about avoiding burnout in business is that you’ll save yourself the pain of hurting those around you. When you feel like you’re failing, it’s impossible for others to feel the repercussion of that in your life. This is your chance to protect yourself from burnout and take hold of the reigns of your business instead of letting it rule over you!
Have Clarity Be Taken Seriously As A Professional
Stop questioning everything about your business. Be confident in your abilities and have clarity about who you are as a professional photographer. The greatest battle is the battle of the mind. Unorganized and dysfunctional businesses make it extremely hard to believe in your abilities and your level of professionalism. When you establish effective business practices, you’ll begin to experience the JOY of running your own business instead of stress, anxiety and feelings of inadequacy.
Confidence In Your Business How It Can Protect You
Feel the relief and the comfort of knowing that everything in your business is done well and everything is done right. When your business is functioning well legally, you get the joy of working confidently & securely… never worrying that something will fall through the cracks.
Eliminate Stress Be Present To Live Life
Your business can be organized into efficient systems and that means minimal time behind your computer. You can create a business that works for you and gives you the freedom to truly stop work at 5pm. This is your chance to live the life every entrepreneur longs for…. no stress, systems that are sustainable, and freedom in your schedule.
