It’s Already Been a Year!!

It was a year ago today that my destined career path changed and I took the photography business full-time.  Rewind back nearly six years ago, while still in college, I accepted a position with one of the Big 4 accounting firms – Deloitte and Touche.  At that time, I was near certain I had found my chosen career path.  Having already completed a 3 month internship in San Francisco with another firm, I had determined I wanted to take the “partner track” through the firm and have a very long and successful career.

Fast forward to today and Wow things have changed for me.  I left the corporate world almost exactly a year ago today.  So much has changed for me during this time… I saw the business grow to a new level, I became a dad, and I learned that running your own business requires a lot of work!  It has not been easy, but it sure has been amazing.  My past career life has faded to the back of my mind and seems like a dream.  It no longer seems strange to respond “I’m self-employed”.  Running my own business has been no piece of cake, I’ve put in many more hours than I would have ever expected.  However, I no longer feel an emptiness that I’m not following my dream.   The business is growing and for that I’m so grateful!

I no longer consider myself “Tied Down”. I truly believe that life is way too short to not follow your passion!  I’m feel so blessed to be doing what I love!  Thanks for the support from family and friends and of course my SUPER-SUPPORTIVE Wife!  Looking forward to the future of this business.
