Ever wondered if being an entrepreneur is your calling, especially in the field of photography?

Now is the perfect moment to dive into the business. So, if you’re still on the fence, here’s a gentle push to leave the hesitation behind and jump into the photography adventure.

Small Business Boom

Ever feel like small businesses are suddenly the cool kids on the block? Well, recent tax changes seem to agree. Well, with businesses sprouting left and right, it’s as if the world is embracing chaos. Small Business Saturday has become a superstar. Feeling like taxes are getting a bit tricky? That must mean everyone’s swimming in cash. Also, expect more support as people are keen on assisting smaller enterprises. Given all the highs and lows of recent years, this could be an excellent time to embrace the small business wave and establish your presence.

Rise of Gen Z Entrepreneurs

Gen Z isn’t just caught up in TikTok trends; they’re changing the way they think about jobs.  Surprisingly, over 62% of them want to start their own businesses before tossing their graduation hats. The entrepreneur lifestyle is the new trend, and it’s not going away. So, what’s holding you back? If high school grads are already thinking about starting a business, maybe it’s time to join the party. It’s not about FOMO; it’s more like FOMS—Fear of Missing Success.

Tools of the Trade

Ready to explore photography? Great news – all the tools and resources are right here. From client manager systems to educational materials, everything you need is at your fingertips. Whether you fancy QuickBooks, HoneyBook, or dubsado, there’s a choice for everyone. Courses and coaches are popping up faster than you can Google “How to start a photography business.” No excuses, really.

Overcoming Procrastination

Feeling stuck in procrastination? It’s time to break free. Starting a photography business might seem overwhelming, but don’t worry – it’s all about your mindset. It’s a mental game and you’ve got what it takes. Keep emotions from taking over your journey. Business is messy, and everyone starts less than perfect. Avoid comparisons, stay focused on your goals, and don’t get distracted by the noise. Remember, small beginnings lead to significant successes.

The FOMO Factor

Waiting to chase your dreams? That’s a classic FOMO move. Think of missed chances like that epic party everyone talks about and you don’t  want to be missed out. If you start now, you’re not just growing your business, but you’re growing as a person. Just imagine living your dream and capturing others’ dreams. Don’t be stuck watching others live your dream. You have to tag along and create your own journey.

It’s a Wrap!

Apparently, now is a great time to dive into the world of entrepreneurship, and don’t worry, it’s not going out of style; it’s just becoming cooler. Even if the business scene seems a bit crowded, take it as your signal to join, explore what you enjoy, and later on, you can fine-tune your focus. If you’re concerned about failing? Well, success comes in different shapes, and snagging that first client is a win in itself. Forget the buzz about six-figure incomes; even Instagram was pretty basic back in 2009. That’s the real deal.
