I had a question sent to me that made me really think.
“I really want to start a photography business, but I have no idea of where to start or what to do next.”
I know she has had the opportunity to read a ton of articles here on this blog, and with over 1,000+ articles, that is a lot of information.
And I know she’s has access to some of my best training. Just one of my Kindle books – my 30 Ways in 30 Days Kindle book is probably one of the best (and affordable) ways to have a blueprint in place, ready to take you by the hand over 30 days and walk you through the process.

Yep, there is no denying it. The world is changing. And the more you look back yearning for what we once had, the more you’re missing out on the greatest opportunity of our time. [Read more...]
