My First Business Goal

My First Business Goal

Flashback to 10 years ago. Just in case anyone forgot what photos off of a flip phone looked like. 🤣 I was telling a group of women this weekend that I started my photo business in 2009 with one goal in mind. I needed to make $50 a month to pay for cable. That’s it. That was my goal. ⠀

I was a stay at home mom with a brand new baby that needed expensive formula and in order to make ends meet, we got rid of cable. Y’all...I was NOT happy about it. I needed the real housewives to keep me company while I rocked Rowan to sleep. ⠀

My very first camera was a Sony Cybershot point and shoot. I used that thing every day and even taught myself how to adjust the ISO on it. Has anyone here ever tried to adjust the settings on a point and shoot camera from 2009??? 😱I had to basically spin around 8 times and hold my breath while trying to adjust the settings. It was so complicated! But I did it. And then I got a DSLR and I learned those settings. I just kept going.⠀

Fast forward to today. I retired my husband from his job last year and yesterday we re-visited our goals for 2019. Scaling to a 7 figure business is within our grasp now, and I can’t even fathom what life would be like if I stopped trying. Stopped learning. Gave up, made excuses, caved under the fear of what others thought about me. ⠀

If you are just starting out or maybe you are rocking your baby to sleep right now. The dreams in your heart and talents you possess are there for a reason. Keep going and keep growing! It’s worth it! 🥰
