Wanna Know This Episode in One Quote? I Got You, Boo!
“As a long time photographer, I can totally understand that, sometimes, we just hit walls. When you’re shooting for the first couple of years, everything feels exciting and new and there’s also a feeling that, eventually, you’ll feel like you’ve ‘made it”. And while you might hit that feeling, it’s possible that, as a creative, you’ll keep moving the goal post to what “making it” actually is. And that’s totally fine! It’s not the best feeling to constantly move that goal post but, as someone who does that (regrettably, lol), I can say that diversifying my income streams made it so that I feel like I have more things to hit. And because I have a variety of goals? It helps me focus on each one by one.”

Would you like to diversify your income with shooting?
Would you rather add a different type of work into your business?
