Realistically, this is how my week is going. Deep breathing and lots of it. I’m learning that in owning your own business, “how you are going to run your company” is completely up to you. And that is a terrifying and thrilling thought all at the same time. The who, what, where, when and why takes your brain for a spin cycle over and over again. I am definitely not the worlds perfect business owner by any means…AT ALL. But I do know that I want the absolute bestest (yes, I like to make up words) for each one of my couples. I want them to have the best vendors for their day. The best experience. I want them to have all the pretties in the whole entire world. Well, I’ll at least try. More importantly, I want my couples to love me for me. Corkiness and all. I want them to love me for the eyes that God gave me and for the artist approach that I take in capturing their wedding day. I am so entirely grateful for all the incredibly sweet sweet couples I have gotten the opportunity to share in their amazing day with. (insert giant smile)
As a business owner, you get A LOT of advice. Some good. Some bad. Some crazy town advice. You even get critiqued and that my friend can sting the heart. Ouch! Many tears. When you have put your blood, sweat and tears into your business and parts of it fall short here and there it hurts the soul. *sigh* But I am learning. Learning to not give up. To not just throw my hands up in the air but to get back at it no matter what people say or think. Through all the uglies. I’m learning to take deep breaths, drink more coffee and seriously dance through rough patches. I love the advice my brother gave me, “Anything worth doing is worth making mistakes pursing. See long term and make the move in that direction come hell or high water…high water is nice, you get to surf!” :–)
You are the best and your work shines brilliantly!!
