Stepping Out

I am officially stepping out of my comfort zone and making an attempt to grow my business, and my dream of one day working 100% from home.

My husband always says 'you have to spend money to make money' and while I know this is true, I've tried to keep from spending anymore money than what was 100% necessary because honestly, we didn't have the money to spend.

So. I took on a wedding on Henry's birthday this year. It's been eating me since the day I accepted, but - the money from the wedding will pay for Henry's swing-set, birthday party, and make up for the money I will lose not working all weekend plus, it will pay for this big step forward...

advertising. Like. For real.

My friend Jessica and I are purchasing a booth space at a local festival at a local produce market and farm that is hugely popular in our area.

Our booth will have a two-fold purpose: selling our handmade crochet items and promoting my photography.

This means physically meeting people face to face and saying 'yes, I'm a photographer...' which is hard for me to say. I am still a baby in this world, I've just learned to crawl and now I feel like I'm attempting to run.

It's scary. It's stepping out of my comfort zone.

But it's exhilarating too - and a great, great opportunity for me. No one knows me here (seriously) and this is going to give me such great exposure that I may just be surprised with the response.

Only time will tell.

Here's the info on the event, if you live in my area come out and see us!

Thank you, friends, for your continued support in all that I dream and do.
