8- How do you stay focused?
Lists, lists, lists. I need to write my tasks down, and set priorities.
9- How do you differentiate your business from the competition?
I want my clients to succeed, when they succeed I do as well. Rather than just taking photos, editing & sending them to my clients, I discuss with them their goals, branding strategies, and try my best to take the exact photos they need.
10- What has been your most effective marketing strategy to grow your business?
Social media and my amazing clients who always make people know I took their photos.
11- What’s your best piece of advice for aspiring and new entrepreneurs?
Make sure your body and mind are healthy before you start.
Owning a business is not as glamorous as people think. It takes up all your time & energy, but if you’re doing it because you’re following your passion, it is totally worth it!
12- What’s the best work-related advice you’ve ever received?
Be afraid and do it anyway.
13- How do you manage self-doubt?
Imposter Syndrome is something I still struggle with, but I can’t imagine myself doing anything else, so giving up is not an option.
14- What’s your favourite app, blog, and book? Why?
My favourite app is Planoly. Sometimes I feel inspired and write a bunch of posts, saving them in Planoly. It helps me save a lot of time.
My favourite blog is Jasmine Star‘s blog. I love how she is not afraid to get personal & her advice is always great.
My favourite book is Big Magic. Definitely a must-read for creatives.
