Introducing Scarlett Lillian photography workshops! Reserve your spot now!
Today, I can see my dad's face clearly as if it was just yesterday.
He is sitting across the kitchen counter from me as I share with him my fears about ideas for my photography business. I can see him looking me straight in the eye and I can hear him clearly saying:
"Go for it! What do you have to lose? If it doesn't work, it doesn't work.. BUT, what if it DOES work? This is exactly the time in your life to take a risk... and you never know, you just might succeed."
A year and a half ago we had that kitchen counter talk shortly after he had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer a few months before, and here I was with my silly fears of failure about some brainstorms for my photography business and different ways I wanted to grow it. I knew my fears were nothing compared to the fears he must have been going through knowing the number of his days were coming close to an end. But yet, in the midst of his own sickness, as weak as he had been physically, he stood there strong as my #1 cheerleader telling me to look fear in the face, laugh at it, and keep moving forward.
Today would have been my dad's 63th birthday. An entrepreneur himself, my dad was always my greatest business mentor, guiding me on how to set up a business, reminding me to always pay my taxes, encouraging me to take risks and showing me how to turn my dreams into a reality. I wouldn't be where I am today if he hadn't been there always believing in me and my photography business.
I want to do that for YOU.
What's holding YOU back from succeeding?
Today on my dad's birthday, I'm hanging up my one-on-one workshops, and I'm excited to announce my very FIRST group workshop! A lot of you have been requesting this, and it has been 3 years in the making as I've learned what has worked and not worked in running a photography business, attended other awesome workshops, and held private one-on-one workshops. But now it's time to open up the seat to 20 fabulous women to come together at the beach here in Jacksonville, FL and bond over our love of photography to help kick start a fabulous new 2010 for your business!
While I was planning behind the scenes last week, I got this heartfelt out-of-the-blue email from Katie DeWinter, a past "spend a day" girl, who shared:
I can't begin to tell you the difference between this past year and the year before my spend a day with you. You helped give me the tools I need to make my business grow during the worst economy of our lifetime. The average number of sessions I've booked on a monthly basis more than tripled after I had my day with you. I know my photography and shooting improved, but more than that I know I started taking advantage of opportunities to promote my work. I really admire your entrepreneurship. I know your influence is the main reason my business has been so successful over the past year. I’m looking forward to growing even more in 2010. Thanks for being a constant reminder and example of what it means to be a Christian, a strong business woman and an artist.
Lots of love,
I was jumping up and down for Katie! And I'm excited at the opportunity to help you succeed too! You can learn more and reserve YOUR spot now at my brand new workshop website:
