Our first workshop was a success!
A few weeks ago, Kristin and I hosted a business workshop for photographers. I have been wanting to do something like this for such a long time and I’m so glad we finally made it happen. It was a lot of work and I was nothing short of exhausted afterwards, but it was worth every second of it!
We had ten beautiful women attend the workshop and I enjoyed getting to know them so much. Business really excites me and Kristin, so seeing others making changes and finding ways to become more successful is really rewarding.
We started out the day with some introductions. Kristin and I shared our stories of how we came to own businesses. This transitioned into our section about Identifying Strengths and Authentic Personality. As we prepped for our workshop, I feel like this section is the base for everything. There isn’t one right way to be successful. It’s all about recognizing what makes us unique, identifying strengths, and channeling that into our businesses.
Next I talked about all the nitty-gritty financial and legal aspects of a business. While this topic can sometimes be a drag, it is so important! And it’s often something business owners procrastinate because it seems hard, but I showed how to make it easy, stay organized, and do things correctly.
Then Kristin talked Systematization and Organization, which she is an absolute pro at! I learned so many things from her that I want to implement in my business as well.
We then had a break for a delicious lunch and head shots.
After lunch I talked about Post Production and creating a workflow to maximize efficiency.
Then I covered Marketing, Networking, and Social Media and how to best use these tools to get business.
Then we finished up talking about the client experience and how to not only keep your head straight with everything, but also have happy clients!
I thank each of these women for giving us the chance to teach them! It was such a great experience.
And I couldn’t have done this without Kristin! She brings so many talents and ideas that I lack.
We would love to fill our June 4th workshop to capacity as well!
So this weekend we announced that we are giving away a seat! Hooray!
Yes, that means one lucky person will get to come to our workshop for free and get loaded up with material, goodies, lunch, a one-on-one Skype follow-up session, and a new head shot!
