“OMG…. he totally looks like McSteamy!”
While enjoying a little breakfast and
therapy session girl talk on Sunday morning at the Blu Jam Cafe with friend Naomi, our outing was made just a little bit sweeter with our server’s undeniable resemblance to Eric Dane. For this very reason I drank 3 cups of coffee and 2 cups of water to ensure frequent refill needs and visits to our table. Sounds crazy, you say? Well any Grey’s Anatomy fan out there would agree that when you come across a Dr. McSteamy look-a-like you pull out all the stops to catch a glimpse
Celebrities aside, having that time to simply be with and appreciate the people who motivate me and devote their time to help me succeed is something that I not only enjoy but really need, be it over a meal at a restaurant or coffee at home. These people are a combination of my family and friends that give me far more than I could ever repay them for; their support. Because not if but when the going gets tough there’s nothing better than knowing that you have someone who stands behind you.
So how has having a support team helped me with beginning a new business? Well, most of the Lifestyle, Engagement & Wedding shoots I’ve done (or will be doing) have come from this very group of people….. so it’s pretty safe to say that they play a MAJOR part in the journey. They take time out of their own lives and very busy schedules to promote me, put my work out for people to see, send my information to anyone looking for a photographer, give me advise on how to make my website better, etc….. all the things that they do not have to do. Really, they don’t have to take the time to do any this for me but they do. So I owe them, big time! I’m thinking a lifetime supply of Photo Shoots? That should even out the score
All this said, I think we all have our own support teams, whether it’s family or friends. The important thing is to not lose sight of those that have helped us along the way (again, when they don’t have to). Appreciate the referrals, value the time dedicated to helping you but most importantly understand the blessing that these people bring to you. I hold firm to the thought that none of us deserve success or are automatically entitled to it, but that we must earn it. Showing appreciation and counting the blessings are definitely ways to earn it….
…. and free Photo Shoots should help also
