Mindset changes that can help your creative business...

I love everything about being a photographer and I’m really grateful for the life I have because of it! I’ve worked really hard to create a business that brings me an income and most importantly for me, a happy work-life balance. But it hasn't always felt like this. Like everything that’s worth doing, there have been challenges along the way. Things that have made me question whether or not I can keep going with it. When you lose your passion for something, it becomes harder to find the motivation to work on it. When you're not motivated, your business can suffer. I wanted to share with you the mindset changes that have helped me regain my passion for my photography business and not burn out!

You can do business your way

Running a photography business can be challenging, especially when it comes to sales and marketing. One of the biggest mindset shifts that I've had to make is to let go of the belief that I need to be pushy in order to make sales. I used to think that I needed to constantly sell myself and my services to potential clients, but I've come to realise that this isn't necessary. Instead, I focus on building real relationships with my clients, getting to know them and their needs, and providing them with a high-quality service that they can trust.

By being genuine and authentic in my interactions with potential clients, I've found that they are more likely to book with me and refer me to others. I no longer feel the need to use high-pressure tactics or make false promises, and my photography business has flourished as a result.

Authenticity is key to longevity.

As a photographer, I've found that authenticity is key to building long-term relationships with my clients. By being true to myself and my style, I am able to attract clients who value my work and appreciate my approach. I no longer feel the need to try to be someone I'm not, and I've found that this has helped me to stand out in a crowded market.

In today's world, consumers are looking for authentic experiences and connections. They want to work with businesses that are genuine, transparent, and trustworthy.

Remind yourself every day that being paid to create is a privilege.

Another mindset shift that has changed the way I run my business is reminding myself every day that being paid to create is a privilege. As a photographer, I get to do what I love every day and make a living doing it. This is something that I never take for granted.

By focusing on the privilege of being paid to create, I am able to approach my work with a sense of gratitude and appreciation. This mindset shift has helped me to stay motivated and inspired, even during challenging times. It has also helped me to maintain a positive attitude and a passion for my work, which is essential for long-term success.
