During a net-working exercise, someone once asked me, “What makes you different from all the other 100’s of photographers out there?”
She didn’t know me, and she did not know my work at all. I was like well, um, you know, I don’t know? I am not always so great at things like that on-the-spot, so I have decided to truly look at myself and my business and examine- what DOES make me different?
They say it “takes a village” and I agree in life that it really does take more than one person to handle things most of time. I often wonder what life would be like if I still had my mom and my grandmothers around…and I find myself gravitating toward other women to help fill that voice in my life. Some of those women are my mom’s best friends, some are my girlfriends and one is definitely my sister. I have also been known to create groups- groups that bring women who have similar interests together- mainly photography.
Do you have a group of women that you cherish? A group you can rely on if you need extra help?
If not, look online, I bet their are mommy groups in your area, and if there aren’t, you should start one! It can be super casual and laid back, but you never know how much the added camaraderie will fill you up!
