The month of April was wonderful, and it seems like the month of May is going to be even more incredible. I officially booked our flights to Maui and set in place a lot of things for next month. April showers brings May flowers, and I think that stands true for business as well. As I was completing my monthly income report, I'm calculating everything, and that's when I see it. $1,007,325I just hit 1 million in overall income! There's not a lot of things that make me want to jump up in joy, but hitting this milestone is huge for me. It isn't about the money for me. It's about the belief that it was possible. I am the...

HOW I MADE $32,338 IN MARCH Plus what my strategy and goals are for next month. BONUS: Questions & Answers linked at the end of this article!  March was a blast. I completely changed gears, learned to put my feet up and realized that due to the amount of work I have put in in the last few years and the way I have my business set up allows me to do that. Years of hard work and hustling has gotten me to a point where when I need to take a month to slow down a little everything continues just how it should. I launched some BIG new ideas, one of them being opening up a private facebook group to add...

Plus what my strategy and goals are for next month. BONUS: Questions & Answers linked at the end of this article!  If I had to pick one word for February it would be: S-T-R-E-S-S-F-U-L February has always been an off month for me and I'd be lying if I told you that these past few weeks haven't been a little stressful. Between paying $36,000 in taxes (yes you read that right) trying to get everything lined up smoothly for relocating my business to Hawaii, selling out home here in Florida so we can make the move over spring break has been a lot to deal with. But as always, creating plans and being driven forward by my goals is something Iove to...

While putting together this income report I realized that I just hit $900,000 in overall gross income which is pretty incredible. For me running a successful business is so much more than just a simple number and how much I make but has everything to do with creating a dependable income that allows me to do what I am wildly passionate about every single day while also giving me financial security and freedom of time to pursue a life I love. January was great, I felt really in control of how everything was going, inspired by shooting more, excited about my upcoming move to Hawaii. I overshot my overall income goal a little bit for this month which was a great...

HOW I MADE $31,112 IN DECEMBER Plus what my strategy and goals are for next month. BONUS: Questions & Answers at the end of this article!  This income report is special because it officially marks the end of 2016. This past year was incredible. I’ve traveled to islands far away to photograph weddings. Adventured to new places to explore. Photographed new life coming into this world.

Watched my 8 year daughter sell 11 of her abstract art pieces. Got lost in books. Cheered on my 4 year son while mountain biking. Fell even more in love with my husband. Made the decision to move my family to Hawaii....

Plus what my strategy and goals are for next month. This is the FIRST month where I publish my personal business income report. I spent all day creating these graphs to display all the data in a way that makes sense. I'll be honest, I got a little nervous about hitting that publish button. By making this information public I hope that fellow photographers, entrepreneurs, and business owners can follow along and get inspired to pursue what they are passionate about. I manage every aspect of my business myself. I do not have a team that works for me or an assistant to help with the little things that need to get done. Everything you see is done by me personally....

What to include in print packages (strategically)? Anything you love. There's a huge difference between people who "sell" something they love vs those who are trying to sell it because they just need to sell it. No one likes a sales person, and people will avoid using people that they feel are trying to 'sell them' on something they might not even stand behind themselves. On the flip side, when you see someone talk about something they love, something they believe in and are in all honesty recommending because they love it, people love it. They see the passion behind it. That person's eyes light up, and you can just see it. I don't care if you want to be...

I'll use this first post as a way to list ALL income reports in one convenient place.  Once a month I take the time to go over my personal business finances. I write down what I made, as well as how many expenses I had. It's a great way for me to hold myself accountable in reaching my personal goals and showing others that owning your own business by doing something you are incredibly passionate about is absolutely possible.
