" That's how they do it, that's how they are getting clients. " I knew I was an outside the box thinker, so why was I following the in the box crew?
I was learning from friends and folks on the internet and they had fabulous things to say. I learned so much. Checking what others were doing, and watching their business grow had me feeling like I wasn't doing something right.
I want to listen and learn and put it to my ideas and feelings.
I haven't really had any clients for my photography , and I haven't yet had even one for my coaching. Honestly, at the moment, client or no client, I do not care. I have finally gotten back to me and my outside the box direction.
Like at a new job, you are taught and you start out they way you are taught and it takes some time to learn your own way of doing things. As time goes by and we learn more we start to see all the directions we can go.
I knew when I started both of my ventures that I was going to have to work harder to promote myself, my brand, my ideas and way of thinking.
I can't teach others to be themselves if I'm not presenting myself that way ( See, we all need to look inside, even me). I do believe in all the words here on this webpage, and that is what I want to help you with but I gotta go reword this mess, because It is not the way I would speak it to you if you were my client.
I've spent to much time trying to sound super PROFESSIONAL because I thought I needed to. I've even had others go over my articles to check spelling and punctuation and to have it returned with changed "pro" wording, and that didn't work for me because it no longer sounded like me. So I didn't post them.
I'm not business attire lady, I'm cute dress lady. I'm not a proper -speaker-with-my-big-words, I'm the girl that talks to you like I've known you forever and we are best buds.
I'm not a photographer that only wants to pose you and make everything perfect, that's not my style. I want real life, messy fun, or creative stylings for how you see yourself on the inside... who you really are or want to be. I knew I would have to work harder, so I am, and I won't stop.
I have a passion for these two things and I will always. They may or may not get me anywhere but I will keep trying. I will do it my way, with my ideas behind it. The only emulating I want to do of successful people is the drive and the fearlessness.
Now, Im going to revamp all this site to be more me. Saying the things here, but in my own words. Hopefully it works, but either way , I feel better already!!
Many times, I think others already see me the way I want to be seen and I am the only thinking I still need to try to be seen that way. I've been told I was smart and fearless and like I already knew what I was doing... So now, I am gonna go do just that!
Honestly, I have no idea how to be anything other than ME!
