How To Invest Your Most Valuable Resource, Your Time, To See Your Business Flourish
Since we were children we have never been told enough that the best ways of succeeding is through trial. We fear to take action because we may fail, wasting our time in things that will only aggravate our fears.
Do you know that those who made it are not only doers, but it is a fact that they failed. Every wedding photographer may have missed the moment, but only the best ones get over it and get things done.
In this page we are going to tell you some of the most spectacular mistakes we made so that you can avoid them and move on!

A portfolio should always be interesting to your Ideal Client. It should show what she wants to see. If you are attracting a lot of enquiries from the wrong type of customers, there are good chances that you are showing the wrong images!
Do you feel an artist, but you hate sales?
When thinking about sales, stop thinking about it as a dirty word. Being a good salesperson in the photography business means helping your customers making good choices. It’s not about selling them everything you can. Be their friend, their consultant and they will respect you and buy from you!
Do You Battle with Your Prices In Your Head?
Having a price list in your mind is not enough. You need to write it down. It has to be clear and physical.
