Apologies in advance to those of you who just don't feel like a sappy moment, but most of my blogs are fresh off the cuff each day, reflecting whatever has happened in the day or week before in our industry. This morning, while it was an incredible week, my mind keeps going to a couple of new photographers I spoke to last week who seemed to spend more time apologizing for their dreams than working to make them reality.
So, I went off in search of something motivational and found this little piece by Karen Ravn...
Only as high as I reach can I grow,
only as far as I seek can I go,
only as deep as I look can I see,
only as much as I dream can I be.
I'm not a big fan of rhymes, but it does make it easy to remember...so here's my spin on it as it applies to building a business...
Hey, I warned you this morning...this past week several projects came together that were CNC's (Cocktail Napkin Concepts)....it's an amazing feeling. Or as Hannibal Smith used to say on the A-Team...
"I love it when a plan comes together!"
Wishing everybody a wonderful weekend! Let yourself dream, raise the bar on your business, then raise the roof to celebrate. You're part of an amazing industry!
