Running A Small Business – Confessions of a Girl Boss
Part of me is writing this for you and part is writing this for me…
When December came around I braced myself for the lull, the slow season through March, where days or even weeks would go by without any shooting. I had my to-do list of marketing plans, and office “house keeping” that I would tackle during this time. Oh and why not plan a styled shoot to get my creative juices flowing, and work with some of the wedding industries most talented vendors? I got used to going to bed before 2am and most nights even before 10pm. The sleep was glorious, but it didn’t last long.
I, too, was once guilty of believing the misconception that wedding photographers are slow during the “off season”. So, now here I am 4 coffees in and officially done tackling the 684 emails I had in my inbox, many of those I can thank to the marketers of male enhancement pills. haha
