One of my favorite things to do is curl up on the couch with a mug of peppermint tea, a soft blanket and a good inspirational book. My office shelves are lined with them. During quarantine, I've been rereading some of my favorites and starting a few new ones. While the world is starting to slowly reopen its doors, big weddings are not reopening anytime soon. This year, my calendar will be mostly empty. My weekends, suddenly free. I've bulk ordered my favorite tea and have been eyeing those chunky wool blankets on Etsy in preparation for book filled evenings. If I can't be out shooting, I can be growing as an entrepreneur, brainstorming additional revenue streams, and working on improving my client experience. I can't wait to dig in and do the work! Whose with me?
Daring Greatly, Selling the Invisible, Big Magic, It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be, and $100 Startup are next up in the queue and I can't wait!
Daring Greatly - this one has been on my "to read" list a VERY long time. When my good friend Tricia mentioned it in a recent zoom conversation, I decided it's finally time. Can't wait pour myself a cup of peppermint tea, wrap myself in a soft blanket and get to work.
Selling the Invisible - Perfect for photographers. How do you promote what you cannot see? We are not just selling our images, we are selling a service. This book is for you if you struggle with how to promote yourself in a crowded market.
Big Magic - Get over your fear and start creating. Have trouble getting started? This might just be the book for you!
It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be - This is a quick but fun read (can be read in less than an hour). If you need a quick dose of inspiration before you try something new, this is a great one to pick up.
The $100 startup -These are the true stories of 50 different "micro entrepreneurs" who started their busnesses with $100 or less. It's not a "how to" but it's full of inspiration.
