Balancing Home and Business? How to maximize your time!

by

Pin It Without a doubt, the most import element of your photography business is not necessarily the type of camera you use, the style of photos you shoot, or how many clients you have. While these are all important elements in their own right, the most important part of your business is you. Whether you shoot with Nikon or Canon, have 10 clients or 1000, the driving forces behind your business are you and your own, unique vision. That’s quite a lot of pressure, isn’t it? However, this same pressure is what can make or break you as a photographer, because...

Managing your business: Don't be part of the 80%

by

Pin It by Guest Contributor Shannan Painter  Did you know that 80 percent of all businesses fail within the first 2 years? Did you know that the number one reason for failure is cash-flow problems? Translation: poor accounting habits. You may feel like you didn’t get into business to be an accountant, but let me point out that if you don’t have at least a basic understanding of how to read and interpret financial reports, you put your business at a serious disadvantage.
