This time last year...


I love this inspiring song "Crazy Dreams" by Carrie Underwood:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bnu5alQMmZw


If you were promised a safety net for your crazy dreams, what risk would you take?

Last year for me, the big risk without a safety net was starting my one-on-one workshop, "Spend A Day With Scarlett."

I remember my dad sitting at the kitchen counter, and I was over for a visit leaning on the counter in one of our business talks. I was telling him how my inbox was getting flooded with other photographer questions and how it was hard to keep up with it all while not neglecting my brides, but how much I wanted to help other photographers. I told him him about the idea I had for my "spend a days" where photographers could come hang out for a whole day and pick my brain and ask me anything and everything they wanted.

"What's holding you back?" he asked.

"I don't know, maybe the thought of failure. What if I put it out there and no one signs up? Plus, who am I to teach, I've only been doing this a year and a half," I explained.

Then he responded, with the oh so profound fatherly wisdom, "I would rather see you try something and fail than always wonder 'what if?' For all you know, it could be a big success."

Fast forward a year later today, and I had the honor of meeting 21 amazing photographers so far! They came from all over the country, and even two girls from Germany! I couldn't believe it!

So what's holding YOU back from going after your dreams? For all you know, you could succeed. Don't let fear of failure stop you from going after the things you really want, and if it involves helping someone else, that's a risk worth taking.

The path toward your dreams starts with one step. If I could do it, I believe you can do it too! :-)

Below is a collage of all the beautiful photographers who have come to spend a day with me in the past year. To each of you I met, thank you for allowing me to share my heart with you. It's been exciting watching how your businesses have grown since our time together! Don't forget how fabulous you are!

***SALE****
And lastly, I'm excited to be spending the day with more wondeful women in the coming months, but December will be the LAST month I host the one-on-one opportunity for a while to then start preparing for hosting group workshops in the new year. Yay! So if you are interested, I'm running a "clearance" sale until the end of this week to reserve your spot for 50% off! That's $750 in savings you can buy a new lens or something with! Woo hoo! Limited availability! Email me at scarlett@scarlettlillian.com to sign up! Sale ends Friday night at 5pm EST! :-)

I highly recommend this to an aspiring photographer. Scarlett is great, very easy to talk to and an open book. Great learning experience, I noticed a difference immediately in my pictures.

I have a couple of questions if I may :) Firstly, (is that a word?) any idea how much a flight is from Ontario? (I'll search in a sec) and Secondly, what day of the week do you typically have someone visit with you? I REALLY BADLY, BADLY, want to come :) Thank you!

Teresa and Jaren- It was so awesome to meet you and get to know you from our days together! Thanks for the sweet words!

Erin- I have no idea about flights. :-) Check cheaptickets.com. I typically book Tuesday-Thursday to leave the weekends open for weddings. Email me directly for more info girl! Hope you can make it!

Gah! I'm such an idiot. I looked into flights and looked into booking off work, and then I re-looked and your sale is over :( Are you ever going to have another one? (sale that is)Thanks
