“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” Anthony Robbins
Back in January I was given the opportunity to fly out to California to meet two of the most inspiring photographers in the boudoir industry. These two amazing artists have been ones that I have followed for a few years that I’ve inspired me in so many ways. Having the opportunity to meet them in person and learn from them is something that was so hard to imagine me doing a year ago.
Over the summer last year I set a goal for myself to do something challenging with my business. The past few years have been a struggle in so many ways mentally for me, it was time to do something major. So I sat down and wrote out five goals that I wanted to achieve over the next year.
The first was to stop trying to do everything at once. I consumed myself and trying to be the best but I had to realize that I’m human and I can’t make everything perfect every single time.
The second was to work on my client relationships. At the beginning of my mercury return I started doubting myself, I started slacking on my passion. My family and my clients for the receiving end of those failures and I knew the only way to fix that what’s the stop making excuses and be better and giving my clients the best experience!
he third goal was to try new experiences! I have never flown on a plane, I had never been to the East Coast, and I had never met such reputable photographers as Matt Mathews & Karla Mason. This experience offered so many new things that I still can’t even believe I got to do. I got to smell the ocean for the first time, I got to be in a city that I never thought I’d be able to see, and best of all I met a new version of myself! A dreamer of dreams turned into a maker of my own happiness!
The fourth was to stop making excuses and get a real studio! Trying to separate work from home while living at home and being a single parent is definitely the biggest struggle I’ve ever had to deal with. To stop making excuses and getTo stop makingI consumed and I knew that the only way I was going to be better as a business owner and mother was to make sure that my two worlds we’re not always together. Before I left for California I made it my number one priority and found my current studio space & two days after my return from my trip I signed my lease!
My 5th goal for this year is to let go of things I can not control and believe in myself. It’s time I accept who I am and my roles in the world. I am an artist and a damn good one at that! It’s time to stop doubting in time to start doing! I need to stop letting fear of what others thing keep me from growing. The only opinion I care about when it comes to my work is my own!
