A TIP FROM RACHEL

“If you’re getting into photography for the money, don’t. There are a million other careers that you could be doing that make more money, require less personal investment involved, less rejection and less financial risk.

BUT If you love photography, then I would challenge you to figure out why you love photography. Or if you love being a creative entrepreneur, you’ve got to figure out why and you have to dig deeper. Because if it’s just, you know, I’m a boss, babe. Oh, I want a flexible schedule. I want to have some independence. That’s fine. But that’s not going to carry you through. You have to find the thing that drives you from before you picked up a camera. From before you started your business because that’s going to be your anchor, that holds you through.”
