When it comes to growing your business, usually a lot of anxiety and stress comes with it. Asking for money for your services can be super scary but you started your business for a reason. You LOVE boudoir and you have an incredible talent when it comes to photography.
Procrastination can completely ruin your day. When you are nervous, its really easy to procrastinate those phone calls, editing, and writing that blog post. It's easy to find something else to do or an excuse for not doing it. Sometimes the fear can get you down and you think you'll just do it later when you feel better. The fear may never go away so you might as well conquer that to do list now. The more you procrastinate, the longer your to do list gets.
When it comes to starting any kind of business, it is so important to know your numbers. If you just wing it, chances are you don't know if you are successful or not. You may feel like you are doing awful but you may be bringing in more money than you think. Keep track of everything. Know how much you need to cover your bills each month. This will help you create income goals and even give yourself a raise every now and then. Don't be afraid to know what you are making, it's an important step to having a successful business.
Even if they are small goals, be sure to write them down! As you cross more and more things off, your confidence is going to grow. Being able to see yourself actually accomplish what you set out to do is an amazing feeling, be proud of yourself! Creating a business and rocking it is hard work, but you are completing those goals. It is definitely something to feel good about.
