    "From Burned Out to Fired Up - Reigniting Your Passion"

      Owning your portrait business can be overwhelming, exhausting and down right frustrating at times. From the nagging phone calls that says you need update your Google listing, to clients who just want the digital files, often we as professional photographers find ourselves in a world lacking any creativity, passion or fulfillment.  Late hours working on images, to having to file yet another tax form, all the while your family misses spending time with you. Some days you just want to throw up your hands and say "I QUIT!".  I get that! I was there, for 6 really long years, I was burned out and my only goal was to make it through the next day. My passion was gone, my creativity was gone, my work suffered, my family suffered and my life sucked!  It's one thing to not like where you work, but it's totally different when you are the owner of that workplace.  

      It's time to turn your life around and take control, love what you do and spend time with you family and I'm going to show you how.  From clearing off your plate, to organizing your day to finding that passion you had at the beginning of your career, we are goin to walk you back for the living dead and turn you into a bright light of sunshine  to be reckoned with.

      If you are ready to take back your life and run your studio instead of it running you... join me for a fun, motivating and helpful program to Reignite Your Passion, and go from being Burned Out to Fired Up!
