I always walk away from a business conference or inspirational workshop with so many new ideas! After Creative at Heart in Annapolis, one of the biggest decisions I came home with was how to differently structure my mentoring sessions for the next season ahead. After a couple heart to heart conversations, and some big clarity brainstorming when I got home, I am now so excited about the “micro changes” that I think will provide “macro results” in this well loved area of my business!
One of the first changes I recently made before the conference was making sure each photographer received a tangible welcome from me this year- so I had these beautiful journals hand scripted for brainstorming and dreaming. I am absolutely over the moon about how they came out. (Calligraphy by the talented Script Merchant.)
The second new change is becoming more strict with myself on how many photographers I mentor each month. Although I have done much better at this than in years past, I have such desire to help others that sometimes I sacrifice my own boundaries of schedule to make it happen. I will now be working with no more than two photographers per month. This will provide each of those photographers with more of my attention and focus, and also keep my schedule in balance with all the other roles I have in my business.
I have made a few other exciting changes in the structure of these sessions as well, and would love to chat with you about it if you feel this mentoring experience could be what you are looking for. I have worked with over 40 photographers one on one in the past few years, and love helping other photographers with their brand message, client experience, pricing, offering prints and albums in a branded way, marketing, and more! I am currently booking the two per month sessions for June, July, and August 2016 and am happy to provide more detailed information upon inquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org or directly on my website.
