Danielle, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. We’ve love to hear an interesting investment story – what was one of the best or worst investments you’ve made? (Note, these responses are only intended as entertainment and shouldn’t be construed as investment advice)
When started in photography, I went in with a mindset to learn how to take the best images possible. I dug deep into that and researched the best practices and the best equipment. Then I spent money on what I thought was the best equipment and rushed into investing into things that may help me take better photos, but that was the worst way to invest in making me a better photographer and business owner.
The best investment I finally realized was when I invested in a mentor and business coach. When I invested time to master my craft with the tools I already had, not the tools I thought I needed because other successful photographers already had them. Once I started investing in myself and my specific craft and the business I wanted to build, I felt confident in where I my business was going and the photographer I was becoming.
Long story short, slow down and stop buying gear! Read the entire feature HERE.
