Kim Wilson is one of my clients and she’s a photographer from Burbank, California.
To say that she enjoys photography would be an understatement.
Photography is her passion, and she absolutely LOVES it.
She loves to travel as well, and incorporates this love of travel into her photography business.
Kim recently started a blog and was telling me about it, so naturally I wanted to see it for myself.
Her blog can be found at www.kwphotog.com/blog.
As soon as I got to her site, a photo she’d recently taken in Paris caught my attention, and I had to read the entire blog post.
Even though I’m not a photographer myself, and wouldn’t normally be reading a blog on this subject, I’m always drawn in to a good story.
And in this case, Kim was telling the story behind this particular photo, and let me tell you… the photo is incredibly intriguing.
She ends the blog post with this comment:
“My greatest take-away when I look at this image is that I shouldn’t pre-conceive which lens is always best for a situation. Make use of what you have in the moment. Get the best shot you can using the tool in your hand. If you have ample time to make changes to your setup, that’s one thing but when you have only a few seconds – Get Creative and Just Go With It”.
Upon reading this, I couldn’t’ help but think… this same advice applies to business as well.
Far too many business owners wait for conditions to be perfect.
For all their ducks to be in a row.
For the stars to align… before they take any kind of action to move forward in the direction they really want to go.
I too used to be guilty of this.
For example, when I was hot and heavy into running my first business, the carpet cleaning company, I was working 14-16 hours a day, and I was doing this 6-7 days a week.
During this time in my life I dreamed of having a business that would allow me to work far less hours, while still being able to support my family in the say I wanted.
But for several months I took absolutely no action toward having that kind of business.
All I did was dream of what it might be like.
Finally, in 1999 I took that first step.
I attended a seminar in Phoenix, Arizona and at that event I met Perry Marshall.
You can Google his name if you don’t know him.
Attending that event changed my life, and it put me on the track to having the business I now have.
Gone are the days of working 14-16 hours.
Today I work 4-6 hours a day and take lots of time off to spend with my family.
Most weekends are 3 or 4 day weekends for me as well.
Truth is, I can’t even remember the last time I worked for more than 4 days in a row.
When people find out that I have this kind of life, their immediate response is, “Wow, I sure would love to have a life like that”.
In that moment, they too will dream of what it would be like, and how nice it would be.
To that person I offer the same advice as Kim.
Make use of what you have and go for it.
There’s never been a better time than now, and I’ll be right here to guide you every step of the way, just like I am for Kim.
Dedicated to your success,
