Seven years ago I walked away from a great job with full benefits, a wonderful boss and awesome co-workers to pursue my dream of being a photographer. Janine had left her job a couple of years before to begin building the business and it was time to take the plunge. It was the scariest, but one of the best, decisions I have ever made.
I find it interesting, at the time I was consumed with “making it”. I really wanted to succeed, and would work as hard as possible to achieve that success. If you had told me then that 7 years later we would be traveling, taking photos and making a comfortable living, I would have breathed a big sigh of relief and would have been thrilled at the thought of actually “making it”. But now that I’m here, I still worry about the future, and continue to have those thoughts that I hope we can “make it”. As someone told be recently, it is probably a good thing to feel that way. I know one thing – it sure has been a wonderful journey!
