So for those of you not in the loop, I went and did something crazy.
For the past three and a half years I've been working part time at a bar. It's paid my rent and let me save pretty much all of my income from photography. I made a lot of friends and met some awesome people. But my heart wasn't in it. Even though I adored my coworkers and the money was good, it was draining me of my energy both physically and emotionally (if you've ever worked in the service industry, then you know exactly what I'm talking about). So I finally made the decision to take the time and hard work I have been putting into someone else's business and put it into my own.
I have been struggling with this decision for a long time. I mean I'm comfortable right now. Giving up a sure thing for the unknown seems pretty stupid. But there are only two possible outcomes in this scenario. I thrive or I fail. And if I fail I'll go find another job. That simple. And at least I won't spend the rest of my life wondering. (Just fyi, I plan on thriving.)
Obviously it wasn't an easy choice. And I'm scared as hell because it's all on me now. But if you're not taking risks, you're probably not growing. I've got big dreams and big plans. And you can't achieve that shit inside the comfort zone.
So here's your reminder to take risks, get uncomfortable, step into the unknown, and grow baby grow!
Also this means more time. And more time means more shoots, more family time, more coffee dates, and more cool free stuff like ^^ this little printable shareable graphic ^^ Sign up for the ol list if you want it and want to be the first to get everything (they've known I quit my job since last week haha)
