Laying here in my big comfy bed with the smell of freshly brewed coffee ready to be devoured ( at 6:00 P.M. ) I can’t help but smile when I hear the slight noise of crickets… ok.. almost crickets, but my little noise maker is with her MeMe at the moment so that means other than hearing Doc McStuffins blaring from the living room that I forgot to turn off before I hoped in bed, it’s pretty darn quite, and that’s nice. These past couple days have truly been hectic for James, Gracelee and I. We are not sure if it has anything to do the craziness from the Holidays or some type of growth spurt, but whatever it is, we have lost great amounts of sleep over it. If I had to guess she is preparing us for when Laken gets here!
This post is very exciting and nerve racking for me to write at the same time. Thinking about the goals I want to set for myself personal and business wise is very liberating, but on the other hand I need to remember that not everything will probably be met and that’s ok. If anything I know first hand what it feels like to fail at something multiple times. However with that being said I don’t think if I didn’t fail I wouldn’t be so passionate about what is in front of me. One of my absolute favorite photographers said something in her workshop that struck me so deep because every single word is so true and powerful. She says ” The more you fail, the more you succeed.. so here’s to many more failures.”
Here are my business goals for 2015. I have SUCH a good vibe about bringing on the new year, and I know that 2015 is going to by MY year.
1. Book 15 weddings (already have 5 booked :)!!! )
2. Book at least 1 destination wedding
3. Network my business more
4. Create more photographer relationships
5. Shoot at least 4 personal projects to keep me inspired
6. Learn how to say no to lifestyle sessions
7. Attend more workshops! Knowledge is power and I’ve been craving it lately!
I can’t wait to come back to this post and see what all I accomplished, and also see if I added anything to this list. I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday, and I hope 2015 is a good year to all of us!
