Photography Business Help – FEAR is a Problem! {Featured}

Sometimes, we look at others and think they have it all together. Sometimes, we look at their businesses, or their success, and think they must not be afraid of ANYTHING. They’re so confident, they’re so on TOP of things, they have no fear and just get things done! I have seen this particularly in the photography industry – newer photographers will look at the rockstars for photography business help and think MAN they just have everything together and are kicking ass!

And yes, they may be kicking ass and very successful in their business – but sometimes, it’s so not true.

Even the rockstars are scared of things. Even the most successful people in the world face fears and can be scared of things that happen, but it’s how they DEAL with that fear that can set them apart!

We all face fear in so many different ways, whether it’s in your business, parenting, relationships or whatever you’re looking at – fear can be a real bitch. Fear can keep us from doing the things that we love most, keep us from our dreams, our goals, and so many other things in our lives.

I have personally struggled with fear for quite awhile, and when I think back to all of the things that I have LOST because of this fear, it makes me very sad, and I kick myself. But that’s not productive either!

I am so pleased to have an article featured on Photography Spark on how to handle fear in your photography business!

    I love this and needed to read this as reinforcement of where I am at with my business! Putting things into perspective is an awesome tool that I personally forget about – I take things too seriously and fear the outcomes when really the worst that could happen isn’t a life or death situation. Thank you for sharing!

    When I have fear about putting something out there, I generally know that means its something worth doing. If its easy, its likely not moving me forward!

    Oh gosh, it really struck me when you said think of all the things we lose to fear. I can personally relate to that. Such great candid conversation about what truly can hold us back. Thankful for photographers like you that help build our community stronger with resources we can access to grow!
