Building a successful and profitable photography business is possible!
There are, however, factors that come into play which will either make or break your dream.
“OMG, did she just say not all dreams are possible?”
That’s not what was said or meant.
The truth is, that without a business structure, you are just taking a shot in the dark.
You are putting on your dream shoes and hoping you can leap.
If you really want to turn your desire to run a successful business into a real life scenario you will need some major game & hustle.
But are you willing to put all your efforts into this?
If this doesn’t sound like you, if you aren’t willing to do the “office work” then you should stop reading now because this is all for the masterminds. Those that love the business aspect of thriving, growing, and succeeding.
To run any profitable business you will need the energy of a toddler, the strength of a German Shepard and the determination of a turtle flipped over on his shell.
It’s going to take some real determination, sweets. But IT IS POSSIBLE, with the right recipe & stamina.
You see, people give up right before they reach the finish line. Their bodies give out, their blisters are ready to burst and their legs tell their brain they can’t make it any further. But why do you think “some” people do make it? Because they fight past the exhaustion, the doubt and desire to quit (and pop a wine cork).
Here’s the real question …
So ask yourself, each time you doubt yourself, is that fear just a natural reaction that anyone would have? Is it part of the race? Is it something you should listen to or something that should push you more?
If you are telling me that you are willing to do what it takes to be a photographer mastermind then I’m telling you that I’m here to assist.
In 2016 my major goal was to grab the hands of those that really truly want this and walk them through anything that I’ve ever learned about business.
Will it help everyone? No. It will probably only be absorbed and implemented by a small percentage but we know that is the case in all businesses. Everyone has a different level of effort. Which means everyone has a different level of success.
If you want to succeed and you will put in the effort, then you can make it. If you want to succeed but don’t want to do the “business side” of the work, then you will be someone who wants it, doesn’t understand why it isn’t happening and will soon quit.
Please don’t be that person. You are worth it. Your business is worth it. Give this your best shot.
