If you couldn’t tell… I LOVE MY CAREER. Sure, sometimes I face challenges because I rely on my creativity to earn a living, but overall I feel blessed. I thought I’d share a few reasons to pursue a creative career for those of you thinking about taking the plunge.

The water’s great… Will you join me?

1.You live a satisfying life!

Something about being my own boss and calling all the shots really lights me up and I can’t get enough of it. Not only am I satisfied by my work, but the flexibility to enjoy life too.

2.You tap into a creative headspace.

Creativity fuels me. When I’m feeling in the zone, inspired, fired up, making magic with my camera—that’s my happy place.

3.You have a job you love.

There’s no counting down the hours until the clock strikes 5pm when you are obsessed with your job. Whether I’m capturing love on camera at a wedding, snapping the exact moment of a proposal, or documenting the smiles on your family’s faces, I love my job. If I’m mentoring new creative business owners, offering guidance on Instagram, or chatting it up on the podcast, I love my job.

4.Work wherever you want!

Sure, you could work from your desk day in and out, but what if you want to work from the couch? You can do that. Want to work from a beach in Bali? You can do that too. That’s where I’ll be this fall. I can’t wait!

5.You inspire others to be brave.

It takes true bravery to pursue a creative career like this, but by doing so, you show others that they can take the leap too. That’s what I’m trying to do for you.

If you’re new and need a little extra guidance getting started, please let me know! I offer mentor sessions to budding creative business owners. I know what it’s like to feel a little lost finding your way in this world and I don’t want you to feel that way. Follow your dreams, girl!
