Some days, as a business owner… it can be tough to run a business. It can be lonely at times. It can be trying on your soul… but surrounding yourself with like-minded creatives, business owners, friends, loved ones who will lift you up and encourage you is so important to “survive” in this dog-eat-dog kind of world we live in. As a business owner, I get excited when my business gets recognized for my work. When someone I know, a client of mine, a company I work with and even strangers recognize how hard I have worked to get where I am today, I am totally and honestly humbled.
I was recently notified that I had received an award for being the best in my business in my local area… which I was so incredibly honored considering where I live up here in the Pacific Northwest- we’ve got some MAD talent up here! A big shout out to Expertise, a company who dedicated their efforts to find the best in businesses, from Plumbers to Photographers to Tattoo Artists! Go check them out and see what they have to offer!
I also want to offer encouragement to my fellow photographers, no matter the niche you have chosen… you CAN do this! Find a tribe and surround yourself with support. #community #findyourtribe
