Happy New Year! 2018 is officially here and I'm really excited to see what God has in store for me this year! 2017 was full of so many blessings both personal and business wise. I want to start this year off right so I set a few goals for my business and also decided to add a few words to live by! I narrowed it down to 4 words that I want to focus on throughout the year!
One thing that I struggle with is procrastination. I will put things off and end up not following through. I believe this is because I want things to be perfect, which hurts me more than it helps me, especially in business. So this year I'm going to get things DONE, even if it's not exactly what I envisioned.
I want everything I do this year in my business to be done with purpose. From social media post to senior sessions. One thing I want to do more of this year is styled sessions. I want each styled session to have a purpose and not be something that I just threw together. I want to challenge myself to be more creative and open to new experiences.
I am launching my senior model program this month. This is something that I have been on the fence about since starting my business. I decided to give it a try and I feel like it's better to try and fail then to not try at all. I also want to submit more of my work for publication. One thing that I've been afraid to enter is the Senior Style Guide's Hot 100. This is a list of some of the best senior photographers from all over the country. Every year I make up an excuse not to enter so this year I am going to enter no matter what!
I know this is something all women do. We love to compare ourselves, our businesses, our relationships, the list goes on! So this year I want to be content with where I am in my senior photography business and in life. I will continue to strive and grow, but I will be more grateful for the portion God has already given me.
