Anyone who knows us knows that we are passionate about photography, business and helping others to live they life they want and enjoy the job of their dreams. In the photography industry, there is an interesting distinction between really good photographers who aren't the best business people or really good business people who aren't the best photographers. We want to help bridge that gap and think that we can! With extensive boot-strap business experience we think we have the knowledge and experience to teach others how to do the same!

I'm obsessed with marketing and one of the biggest things I've noticed is that marketing changes and so do marketing tactics. I'm going to talk all about marketing in this day and age and how to put yourself in front of the right people and ensure they see you. At the end of the day, attention is the #1 thing we need and so if you can grab that attention and build relationships that build your business.
Efficiency is the name of the game. The more efficient you can make the systems that run your business, the less you have to spend on it. At that point, you can live the life that you want, work less and make more! We can talk about hiring associates and the processes, emails, systems and steps to make that happen
