Business Fair

Here is my lastest post from an event that I did on Nov. 10 It was a business fair and I was able to showcase some of my work and meet people. I also was able to network so maybe something good would come from that. Anita Jefferson is one of the vendor that I meet there. She is a wedding planner and event consultant. Hopefully in the future we can work together.

Meeting Paul Rogers

Last night I attended these senimar and it was wonderful. The guest speaker was Paul Rogers and he was the nicest man I meet in a long time. The seminar named "Illustrating Love" was about wedding photography and how to market yourself. It was fun he gave great advice for the real world. He was not on his soapbox and a true gentleman. It was a pleasure meeting him.

Tryin to run a business

i have been so busy trying to run a business and two of them ato that. The photography is something that I have been at for some time now and it doesn't seem to be working out for me. It is hard trying to find clients that want to pay for my service. so I got involve with a direct selling business selling sterling siver jewelry. I really like that alot and I need to work that a little more and get more customers for that. It is really hard to try to do everything on my own and take care of all the bills, but I'm doing the best I can.
