Have you ever contemplated leaving your comfy job to start your own business? Are you too scared to leave because of the unknown of what might happen if you did? Well, you’re not alone. The thought of leaving something comfortable for something uncomfortable makes absolutely no sense! Unless of course, you dread going to your job on a daily basis. Or, on Sundays, the thought of going to work on Monday gives you so much anxiety that it spoils your weekend. These are some of the feelings I had when I knew it was time to make the change and start my photography business.
My passion for photography came from the birth of my son. I can’t explain it completely, but from the moment he was born, I have not been the same person. Since that day I’ve realized that following my passion and doing what makes me happy is much more important than sticking it out with something I wasn’t truly interested in.
Now, let me be clear, following my passion has not been easy. In fact, it has been extremely hard and I will have to go back to work to help pay the bills. But over the last five months I’ve seen glimpses of what my future holds and I am extremely excited about it! I undoubtedly know that this is what I want to do with my life.
This is just the beginning of my blog series, but every week going forward I will be discussing specific things that happened to me during that week. I will give updates on how the business is going. I ultimately want to provide a week by week description of what its like to create your own photography business. Documenting the ups and the downs of what the business is actually like. Discussing what I’ve learned and providing insight to those seeking to create a business of their own.
