Professional Educator with experience with women-owned businesses, photography studios and direct sales. I am particularly skilled in pricing and profits as well as work-life balance.
Do you feel like your business runs your personal life? Do you have big dreams but feel your business is taking over your life? I will help you find strategies to achieve work life balance. As a mom and wife with children at home, running errands, managing two successful businesses I know this difficulty.
As a successful owner of two thriving, high end photography studios for well over a decade, I can help you work through specific problems or concerns with your photography business. Areas of expertise include strategy, marketing and pricing.
Ever feel like you just need an ear to listen and give you some non-judgemental advice? Your mom is biased, your spouse is nervous about the impact on the family and your peers do not always understand. Let me help you work through the concepts objectively
Pricing your photography is one of the most important aspects to running a business, profitably. I have a particular fondness for crunching numbers and during our time together I will critique your price list to help you uncover areas of concern, or tweaks that can be made to drive home higher sales.
Direct sales is a super viable, lucrative way to make money with flexibility and working from home. With years of experience and a team of over 500 people, I can help you strategize on recruiting methods, ways to book parties and organize your business for long term success.
It is tricky to start a business when it soaks up your finances and time. I do believe time is a gift you can still give-- and you are entitled to go to parties and life events guilt free. If there is a cost involved ( travel to wedding or a gift) get creative. Could you carpool? Perhaps provide a creative but inexpensive gift with your talents? If that is not an option and attending will put finances in jeopardy just send a lovely heartfelt ( handwritten) card and a small gift if finances allow and skip the event.
Joy always has excellent ideas that are exciting yet always designed to help increase profits, not just be cool.
