I use to think that I had to do everything myself and it literally took an ambulance to convince me to change.
It was inside that ambulance that I realized I had to stop trying to do it all myself. I had to stop pretending that no one else could do these tasks and so, no one could help me. And when I took a long hard look at my business, I had to admit that editing was going to be my downfall if I didn’t fix things.
Do you know what that feels like? Some of you may not, but I worry that others know exactly what I’m talking about. The very words send shudders through your spine, because this is your reality.
What is your answer to the following questions?
- What takes you more time than possibly anything else in your photography business?
- What get’s you to stay up till all kinds of crazy hours of the night?
- What has gotten you to tell your kids (with shame and guilt), ‘just watch another show’?
- What has gotten you to tell your husband, ‘you don’t understand how much I have to do’?
If you’re admitting that it’s editing like I did…THERE IS HOPE!
Today I want to show you how I let go of my own excuses, what it took to train and hire a retouch artist and why I’ll never go back!
My hope is that I can inspire you to let go of your editing (or whatever areas are holding you hostage) so that you can take back control of your life.
