Photographer, Mentor, & Entrepreneur

Hi Friend!!

Whew!  What a year!!  Never in a million years did I ever think that a pandemic would bring so many of us to our knees in such a short period of time.

But I have a gift of always looking at the bright side of life and when things changed on the outside of my business in 2020, I started looking for ways to pivot and adjust so that I could still come out on top. And let me tell you, I did a lot of pivoting this year. And in all of that, I realized a few things.

  • The world as we know it isn’t coming back. There is not going to be any “back to normal”. We ALL are going to have to pivot in order to remain on top of our game.

  • Pivoting is fun! It creates a freedom that we didn’t have before. Never have small creative businesses had the open door and invitation to think outside the box with their businesses. We can try and do anything right now, no one is going to question it.

  • I love helping people develop those crazy ideas and strategize them into reality. That is my superpower!! 

So if you are:

Unsure of how to run your business in this changing marketplace
