My road in life took a while to figure out.
I loved golf, and started my high school girls' golf team.
Had trouble taking tests and reading so I did not do well on my ACTs. Needed extra help in this area to get a good score to go to college where I received a golf scholarship!
My college internship turned into my first job! I learned tons of real work skills. But then I was tired of sitting all day and decided to use those skills and work for a photographer.
I decided to start my own photography business. I had $1,500 so I moved back home with my parents and started growing my business one client at a time.
Realized I wanted more than just my hometown. So I packed up my car and started my well-established photography business in Florida. It grew even bigger because people found me to be friendly.
Traveled the world, fell in love, started filming videos...learned a new skill and started taking on video work.
Grew a really successful video company with my now husband and then decided we wanted a new challenge, so we left Florida and moved to Charleston, SC. It was a struggle at first, we didn't know anyone
I realized that if you knew the obstacles you would face in life, you may never take that leap, so just treat new opportunities as "stepping stones." You can be as successful as you want to be!

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for middle school students

Write "thank you" notes to people who help you or you are looking to help you. To this day, I have landed our biggest clients with a handwritten "thank you" note. Ask for help, ask people about themselves, be hungry for more.

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"You should stick to a reliable job that has a guaranteed income like a 9-5. It's hard to be an artist, you don't know when the next job will come and you don't want to live with that uncertainty."
